Question about Dell Vostro 200 PC Desktop

Dell Vostro 200 won't boot

My Dell is about 1 year old. I was remote connected to my work PC when I got a blue screen that said it was dumping my physical memory. If it was the first time, to reboot into safe mode, etc. My problem is that when I try to reboot, the Dell screen comes up and freezes. It will not allow me to F2 or F12. I tried putting in the Windows XP disk: nothing. I let it sit over night thinking it needed to clear the cahce or something, but it still locks up at the same spot.

Thanks for any ideas.

From your description you have corrupted the boot files of the machine

Try hitting F8 repeatedly when you power the machine up that should put you into safe mode

If you can get there go for a system restore

If that fails there is a program called ERD Commander which was written by a company called Winternals but is now under Mocrosofts control.

That replaces the normal OS and allows you to do repairs

Make sure that the OS disk you are using is a bootable version not just a collection of files

Dell Vostro 200 will not connect to internet, what can I do?


check that the lan connection isn't disabled.
go into control panel>network connections.
I would disable it and then re-enable it, that sometimes works. if there is no lan connection showing then you need to download it onto a usb stick from the dell website and install it on the vostro. Product Support Dell US

Okay, so everytime i start my Vostro 200(Windows XP) it always shows a blue screen that tells me to restart but it never works, what do i do?


Try starting in SAFE MODE. You may have a virus that kills the booting.

Hit F8 at the right time during booting to get into safe mode.

Blue Screen on Dell Vostro 1400


OK you can try a couple of things.

1. On booting the Laptop, hold down F8 key, then choose "Last known Good Configuration". Windows may now start correctly.

2. If this doesn't work, do the same, but choose "Boot into Safe Mode"

If neither works you may have to repair Windows...
