Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Jet Black (15.4" Wide Screen with true life, built-in Webcam, Intel Pentiu... PC Notebook
I power up computer. Then I get the Dell starting up screen then the Windows Boot Manager screen - with not actions available. I push "enter" it takes me back to this screen I push "esc" it takes me back to this screen.
If anything how do I back up my computer? I do not want to loose my stuff.
If it's XP:
You can try a chkdsk or do an XP repair: (your data will not be be erased)
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Chkdsk C: /R
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If it is Vista, you would need to do a recovery.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
