Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook

1 Answer

Windows Xp, changed graphics after prob, now can't boot past xp s

I was having constant freeze-up problem with an error about NVDIA. I disabled this. This led to other problems. I did something to try to adjust back. When I shut down and then reopened I can't reboot past the Windows XP screen. After Dell, then Windows XP, all I get is a black screen. I can't even boot in Safe Mode. I've tried booting in every mode available in F8 and no go.

    I don't have that available right now...the OS CD. I know once I take the laptop into work it's a gonner, to the IT guys, then I won't see it again for a couple of weeks. I was trying to not go that route.

    Atleast you can purchase one blank cd and ask your IT guys to give you a copy of your os and product key. It will not only help you now but for future use also if it takes even 02 days that would be worth it. Or else ask any IT kids from your neighbour they deffinetly would be having that.

Gateway MX6927 Windows Xp won't boot


put your xp disk in the optical drive.Turn off computer. Turn computer back on as soon as you turn it on start tapping f 12 constantly.it should go the boot menu giving you a choice of booting from cd or hard drive choose boot from cd.Be sure you choose repair rather than new installation or you could loose all your information stored on the hard drive,I personally would try safe mode first you can get to safe mode by tapping f 6 when you first turn on your computer.

STOP: error msg


Boot up with your XP install CD and do a repair.
Go through with intalling XP on the same partition, pass the first repair notification, you will eventually get to another repair choice, this option will restore files and should leave your daa intact.

How to uninstall Vista and load XP in Lenovo Y510 Ideapad


Several points:

1. Although you may prefer XP to Vista, it is probable that you are simply
more familiar with it. If you would give yourself some time to become
accustomed to Vista, you might find that you like it. I know I do.

2. You can't literally "uninstall" Vista, but if you want XP instead, you
simply do a clean installation of XP the normal way. That will format the
drive, removing whatever is on it.

3. Do you already have a copy of XP you want to install? Did it come with
your old computer? If so you need to be aware that OEM versions (such as
those that came preinstalled on computers) are permanently tied by their
license to the first computer they are installed on. If that's your
situation, your copy of XP is not available to be used on your new laptop.

4. Over and above the licensing issue in point 3, many OEM version of
Windows XP are BIOS-locked to the computer they came with, and you actually
won't be able to install it on a different one.

5. You should check with your vendor to be sure, but the warranty on your
new computer may be voided if you change operating systems.

6. Laptops often have special drivers they need for components within them.
Your new laptop undoubtedly came with all the drivers needed for Vista, but
it didn't come with the drivers needed for Windows XP. Finding and getting
the drivers you need may be a problem.

If I were in your shoes, I'd stick with Vista.

If you still want to uninstall:
The normal way to "uninstall" any operating system is to format
the hard drive and install a new OS of your choice.

After backing up any data you wish to transfer to the new OS
installation, simply boot from the WinXP Home installation CD. You'll
be offered the opportunity to delete, create, and format partitions as
part of the installation process. (You may need to re-arrange the order
of boot devices in the PC's BIOS to boot from the CD.)

Then the backed up data can be restored and applications re-installed.

You can even try a dual boot, where you have both Vista and XP on the same system. Click HERE for pictorial guide.
