This could be due to a CD or DVD left inside the DVD drive. The laptop may be trying to boot from that instead of the hard disk. Make sure no USB flash drives or CD/DVDs are left connected/inserted. If the laptop is trying to boot from the hard disk then the files on the hard disk may be corrupted. This is hard to correct without risking loss of your data. Try running the diagnostics by pressing the 'Fn' key (keep it pressed) and press the power button to turn the laptop on. You should be able to access the diagnostics from there.

SOURCE: My laptop Dell studio 1735,

I am glad to HELP YOU!

What you are experiencing now is a TYPICAL PROBLEM related to BIOS. So all you have to do is to RESET THE BIOS PASSWORD using a hardware solution. More specific: to remove the BIOS BATTERY!
That battery usually is a round one, about a quarter in size, and it can be found on the motherboard. So you have to open up the machine and to lift up the battery - gently and with a lot of care!!! - from its socket. Take it out about 30 seconds to one minute and after that re-insert it, put everything back into its place, screw all screws and turn ON your machine. You will have to re-enter the information for the BIOS [date, time, settings] but this way you will be able to bypass the password.
There's another solution: two software called
!BIOS [you can take it from HERE]
and
CmosPwd [you can take it from HERE]
But to use anyone of them you have to have access to the machine, to enter the operating system...


GOOD LUCK!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

Hi ,maria calder....

1. Uninstall any softwear you may have put on the computer when the problem started.
2. Do a complete System Restore: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
This will bring your system back to a time before you installed the softwear or Microsoft installed drivers,etc.
Note: Just be sure to use a date in a darkened box before your trouble start date.
If after you have done the above and your still getting the blue screen of death, the installed drivers,softwear,etc might have corrupted the Operating System.
If that happened then that means either repair or reinstall the operating system.
You will need to do the following:
1...Repairing the Operating System...
A...You will have to have the Operating Dics that came with the computer
It will have your product key number that came with the computer, you can find it on the tower, or under the bottom of your laptop, or maybe the piece of paper that the CD orginally came in may have the number on it.
You can also download a small program and it will tell you your product key number.
Go to the following webpage to download your FREE key finder.
http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/
B...You will now insert the disc into the CD/DVD player
C...Restart the computer
D...When the window opens that tells you to press "Any" key, you will press any key you want to press.
E...If you do not receive a message that says "press any key to boot from CD", then then the computer is not ready to boot from a cd.
To correct this problem you will have to go into your computer's Bios and change the computer to boot from a CD.
To get into the Bios, shut the computer off,restart, while the computer is starting up keep tapping F1 as the computer is starting up.
When you are in the Bios, select to boot by CD by moving the cursor with the direction arrows on the keyboard.
Once you have selected to boot by cd the exit and restart the computer...the disc is already in the cd/dvd player.
Your system will boot then from the cd.
F...After a minute or less it should ask you if you want to Quit Repair, or Continue.
You will select repair this time, but you may have to come back here and select Install if the repair does not work.
It will ask you to ok the agreement document, ok it.
Tap F8 on your keyboard to pass it.
It will ask you if you want to Install, Repair, Delete Partition, or Quit.
Select Repair
Inside the box there will be one or two partitions.
Choose the largest partition.
After you have chosen the largest partition, you will then press the "r" key to start the repair
After the repair is complete you will need to restart your computer
G...Computer Restart
After the repair is complete, shut the computer down (the computer will shut down a few times during the installation of the operating system
that is normal).
Then restart your computer, when the computer restarts it will have a box to put your product key...put the product key in the box.
Answer any questions.
The computer should start up as if it was a new computer.
You do not need to re-register
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this fails to clear your blue screen of death then you have hardware problem.
It could be faulty ram
If you still get the BS (Blue Screen), then you have two choices.
1.Reinstall the entire Operating System.
2..Take your machine in to have the hardware tested.
Keep in mind If you do a complete reinstall the OS you will lose all the information on the computer, such as pictures, programs, videos, everything you installed will be gone.
Please take time to rate me

SOURCE: hi dell studio 17 laptop 2 days old

Just a few days ago, I lost my windows vista admin passwords. I solved the trouble with the help of windows password reset tool. It not only support XP/Vista/2000/NT, but also compatible with windows 7, I tested it on my computer installed with Windows 7 and remove the local user and admin accounts password successfully. It's worth trying. You can download it from: http://www.reset-windows-password.com

call up dell service and if the laptop has no warranty then you can also visit the nearest tech center as your computer software is crashed and your data there's no guaranty for the same......also you should have all the disks that came with the computer specifically the one that says Windows. If not then dell can ship it to you.

As soon as computer is turned on the message bootmgr is missing press ctrl alt del to restart


There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.


i strongly suggest formatting your hard disk drive, and reinstalling the recovery CDs

if you dont have them, get Dell to send them to you -- it will cost you money
