The CD key is the COA printed on the underside of the laptop. Failing that there are plenty for sale on fleabay.

I started having the same problem. I think my system recovery information is stored internally on the computer but I do not remember what that restore key is. Can someone please remind me?
Thanks. I cannot get beyond the blue screen and safe mode or anything like that doesn't seem to work.

SOURCE: My laptop wont exit safe mode even when pressing

this is a case of os corruption somehow..!!..may b a virus/trojan or hardware or software is responsible..
all u need is the os boot cd anyway..

probably now u got two way out:
goto somecyber n download win xp pro sp2, using any bit-torrentclient(like utorrent) from torrent site (eg. mininova.org so on)..make aboot disk n try..
1) copy the file in windows repair mode or from any identical os n put it in place as stated above..
OR 2) reinstall os..
(to takedata backups u gotta connect the hdd to another pc/laptop, forsuch cases a hdd-case is available in the local spare market, it'llmake behave ur hdd to act as an external removable drive)..

thiscan also b a symptom of faulty/defective of RAM..pen clean/removecarbon& or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resitit..[it'll b more prominent, that if itz cause by ram or not,..if duringnormal operation, a Blue Screen appears/Memory Dump]
though, sometimes itz also caused by the m/b..

there are also exceptions, where it is found that any hardware componenton the system is loose or incompatible (see addon cards, the ram(s),the hdd (if itz making any 'ticking' noise like 'kirr kirr' or 'tuc tuc'), all data cables n power cords, may b dusty, cpu overheating,see filter/power/south bridge/crystal clock generator section of m/besp mosfets and capacitors..etc)..

if once u can login, do the following:
hv a licensed and UPDATED antivirus installed (i prefer avg/kaspersky, , without updation a full version antivirus is useless)..
download, install n run microsoft kb890830..http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=AD724AE0-E72D-4F54-9AB3-75B8EB148356&displaylang=en..
download n run Startup Control Panel..http://download.cnet.com/Startup-Control-Panel/3000-2094_4-10039330.html..'remove all the unnecessarystartup items from here..(if u can't find what to remove,post me/us inur comment with all the items listed in each n every tabs herein)..
remove all unnecessary software from add/remove programs..
download, install n run 'Advanced System Care Pro'..http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCare-Pro/3000-2086_4-10399324.html..

always better to seek professional advice of ur system admin/vendor....

SOURCE: stop 0x000000ED (UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME)

Hmm seen this a few times. This is most commonly caused by your NTFS format layering being corrupted. Meaning that the partition was either not completed when u loaded the operating system or the format has been corrupted from "hard shut downs" This is turning the pc off with the power button instead of going to "start" button and doing a soft shut down. U can try retrieving the format back but u will have programs that no longer responde. Easiest way to solve the issue is reloading your operating system.

I have the inspiron mini 1018,i forgot the login password for the user account , can you please help me fix it.


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instruction exactly.

I wanted to know how to recover lost password


Here is a simple way to access Windows XP with Administrator rights and privileges if you have password protected your User account on your Windows XP system and can't remember the password(s) to login. Whenever Windows XP is installed on a system, it creates a default account called "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. Therefore, if you bought a brand name computer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq or Sony)or you have installed Windows XP yourself. You should be able to login to the computer through the unprotected.

You can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account. To do this, try Method 1.

Method 1: Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch on until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (e.g. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini, and everything was working fine until last Friday i tried turning it on and it as it loaded it went directly to a black screen with white letter and asked me how I wanted to...


Looks like your master boot record is corrupted or you have a bad hard drive. Without cd drive there is one option but it is not guarantied it will work. You can acctually make USB flash drive bootable but you need another computer with cd drive and an XP Operating System CD. You can google how to make usb flash drive bootable for XP and it will give you step by step instructions. Or you can borow an external cd drive or take it to pc repair store. Good luck.
