My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

How can i restore a toshiba equium l20-197 back to factory settings


System restore will not do what your asking.

However there is a way but you will need a Installation cd Assume you have Windows XP


Then you need to borrow or buy a Windows XP Home Edition or Pro

You can buy one used from Ebay.


There are two options !.Repair install this will save all files/data on your hard drive.

Follow these instructions to Repair install.


Boot the computer using the XP CD.

You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive.

Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.



When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:


To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.


To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

Do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console).


I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".


Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.


If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.

After the reboot


Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.

Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.


Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

2. If you want to do a clean install that will completely wipe your hard drive clean then follow the instructions from this site http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/win...


You will then need to reload all Microsoft Windows Updates and find all other drivers and software from http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/c...

Then wham bam you should be back in business.


hope this helps

HELLO!PLAESE HELP ME.I HAVE dell vostro 1015 windows vista but i want to convert it into xp,the problem is whenever i try to install windows xp a blu screen appears saying that something about my bios


Are you using a full version retail or OEM copy of WIN XP to install? Or is it a recovery copy from another PC or laptop? You will need to use a full version disc to perform the retrofit. You will also need to download the WIN XP Drivers for your laptop from the Dell Site. You CANNOT "upgrade" install WIN XP over VISTA and keep your drivers, settings, files. Performing a WIN XP install will require a total wipe of your hard drive. Therefore you will have to save off all your personal files before you do this. Microsoft doesn't provide assistance for downgrade-type installations, so you must basically wipe your hard drive and then reload the OS.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-N130G. It fell & ever since I get a BSOD saying unmountable boot volume. I've tried to do a Vaio Recovery but now got an error code of 400 which has to do with RAM. Is there any...


If you do a full sys restore, it will wipe out all old data..
What you need to do is boot up on a CD first and try to repair the MBR (Master Boot Record)
Look here - 4th one down.. to download a Boot /repair CD image to burnto a CD
http://www.answersthatwork.com/Downright_pages/Boot_CD_and_Boot_Disk_images_and_ISO_free_downloads.htm
Read all instructions with it.
OR need to find someone who can loan you the WinXP CD . Or a copy of it. (Or download an ISO (burnable copy) to create one) It is the serial number that validates the Windows install. They don't have to give you the serial as you should have your own on a label under the notebook.

Actually the chances are not good for recovery while in the notebook. You will have a better chance to recover files if you are able to remove the hard drive and install it aas a slave in another (desktop) PC (will come up as D or E drive

When you've finished recovering file, it will be easier to format the HD before putting it back in note book. If the Recovery partion is still intact, do not wipe it out as you can maybe still use it to reload windows.
Worst case - the HD read write heads are damaged and the drive is toast. That will mean no file recovered and replacing HD with new (or used) and reloading windows from scratch.

Wont boot up starts up and go into windows but isnt showing icons ot task bar and i cant use my recovery disc that came with my notebook


a regular XP or Vista installation cd will work as well.... for a recovery if you have one on hand try a System Restore first if you can under : Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools this process will take a while to shut down and reload so be patient.... make sure to select a previous restore point

Windows XP wont read DVDS and resolution sucks.


You will need to restore the original software installation. If your warranty is still in effect you will want to contact Dell for service, this is the best possible opportunity for a complete recovery and a happier outlook

Eee pc 900 XP wont enter the windows menu


ok first thing is to calm down and wipe out the computer.It seems you have a windows crash and re-installing a fresh copy should solve this problem.If you do not have one then go on google and search for ubuntu 9.04, download and put on a cd and put cd in pc and install new open source o/s.Its free and requires no licence nor any need to buy anything, unless you have a license copy of windows.
