SOURCE: Dell Latitude c640 Disable BIOS memory

Just use recovery console of windows xp bootable media and use the following command.

chkdsk (to check the volume).
fixmbr
fixboot

It happens due to improper shutdown methods which has caused the system volume to corrupt the MBR.

I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!


Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as we call it at work anyways.

Dels are known for this.

let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.


Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?

You will need one.

What you do is,

1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,

2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.

3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.

4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Press " R" for repair.

It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.

5: Once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "

6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finish and go back to C:/


Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.

you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.

Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.


WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.

For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.

Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.

What you did was re-installed those windows files.


Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.

This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.

You can help others now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)


Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

Good Luck.

The BIOS setup password is stored in NVRAM and can only be accessed with that password. On the bottom of the laptop there is a Service Tag number. Dell support site can use that number to generate a master password for you. http://support.dell.com/support/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn If you need further help please post back.

Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart This will set the boot order If this fails you might try some of these Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

I have problem wiyth Dell Latitude 505 with corrupted windows xp. I can not boot from cd/dvd because it is broken. Can I use external usb DVD and boot from it ?


For that you must put the USB first in the boot order from the BIOS and disable/remove the CD/DVD entry - leave the hard disk in second and nothing else.

Can i boot from usb


Hi,

I'm sorry but the answer is no.

You only have floppy, hard drive and cd-rom options. With some Dell models the USB is seen as a secondary hard drive from within the BIOS so maybe (if your bios supports it) you can change boot order there.

Usually thats not the case so you mainly have to boot from the CD/DVD to install or run a DOS or linux command.


Regards.

Purchased latitude d600 from sale how can I install my windows xp


Press F12 as you boot up the Dell and select the CD as the alternate boot device, insert the Windows installation CD in the CD drive and continue.
If you can't select the CD as the alternate boot device then go into the BIOS configuration then the Boot order and select the CD as the first boot device, save and exit. You can change it back after Windows is installed if you wish.

From the Bios, load all the default settings and then check the bios SATA port settings. If it is set to AHCI, change it to IDE to boot from Hard Drive. This should solve the problem

BIOS!!!


No boot device available means that there is no Operating System available. F12 is the key that will get you into the Dell BIOS, not F2. Once there change your Boot Order to your HDD first. Good luck!!
