Re: no power

This is another possibility, the socket where the adapter lead plugs into your computer, from the mains! this could be faulty dry jointed. Just thought it might be of help, Because the problem you had I had and this was the culprit!

Re: no power

Bad news...

If the BIOS udpate failed you're in trouble. Removing the CMOS battery will only clear the settings, not the corrupted BIOS code.

I think the only solution to this is to replace the BIOS chip or pull it out of the board and have it reprogrammed. Neither one will be cheap or easy.

I hope I'm wrong and somebody can give you better news.

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update

Have you seen the message
"Automatic Updates
Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect.
Do you want to restart your computer now?"
Automatic Windows updates are very good for computer security. However, when these Windows updates are downloaded and installed on your computer, if the updates require a reboot of your computer, Windows keeps prompting you to reboot your computer.
Now, Windows XP Pro users can disable automatic reboot of the computer after a Windows Update. In order to do that, follow these steps

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Pro usersWith this setting you will be able to specify that after a scheduled Windows update, Automatic updates will wait for the computer to be restarted by any user who is logged on, instead of causing the computer to restart automatically. If this setting is not enabled or not configured, your computer will prompt you every 5 minutes to restart the computer to complete the installation.

1. Press <Windows Key> + R which will launch the Run command. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter
2. Group Policy Editor will now be launched
3. On the left hand pane, under Local Computer Policy, click on the (+) sign next to Computer Configuration
4. Click on the (+) sign next to Administrative Templates. Then click on (+) next to Windows Components and then click on Windows Update
5. Double click on No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations. A settings window will now open. In there, select Enabled and then press OK


6. Close the Group Policy Editor
Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Home usersThe settings are a bit different for Windows XP Home users because there is no group policy configuration for Windows XP Home.
1. Press <Windows Key> + R and type in regedit. Press Enter
2. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SoftwarePolicies MicrosoftWindows WindowsUpdateAU
3. Change the "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers" DWord value to 1 to Disallow auto reboot.
4. Press OK

Brand new laptop and when switched on for the first time message pops up during setup. It says 'the computer restarted unexpectedly or encounted error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install...

try reseating memory modules, see if nay change, if no, then try the modules individually, one may be bad.
Try running system in safe mode (F8 at boot) see if it will get past issue

Hello khulsey60,

The above message is mainly informational and doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. The acronym 'PXE' stands for Preboot Execution Environment. It's an environment to bootstrap computers using a network interface card. Usually the reboot is done by a remote computer on a LAN (Local rea Network). The Realtek NIC (Network Interface Card) somehow expected a PXE boot to be taking place when the computer was restarting. One solution is to restart the computer and go to the boot menu (F2 on some systems) and choose to boot from the master drive.

*Here's a link to a good article explaining what PXE is:

Have a great day,

Windows won't load

Try booting to "Safe Mode" (tapping the "F8" key on boot), or however you can get to your Desktop, click start, right click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery", then uncheck "Automatically restart" under "System Failure", click "OK" then "OK" again and restart your PC.

That should allow you to run without the instant restarting on BSOD, so you can repair/remove Mcafee.

Trying to restore Dell Inspiron 1501 to factory settings.

don't hit ctrl, f11 instead hit F8 and then go into Dell Factory Image Restore, that will wipe, format and reinstall all the factory software that's stored on the Recovery Drive (usually the D: drive) good luck.

1. Right click on My computer >> Goto Properties >> click Advanced >> Under Performance click on settings >> click the advanced TAB on the top >> Under virtual memory click on Change >> Select " System managed size and then click on Set >> Click OK >> Click apply and OK >> Reboot PC
2. Once PC is rebooted
Goto Ctrl panel >> Open Internet Options >> Click on Advanced TAB on the top >> Under Browsing category Look for " Enable third party browser extensions (Requires Restart)
MAKE SURE that this option should be unchecked ( Not ticked )
Click Apply and OK
Click Close

Original setup was interrupted

press F8 key (just after BIOS screen) at the next cold reboot and you will see a DOS screen with 3 or more options. Read each of them and I think you will see one option is to resume setup. This option places the system at a safe entry point to continue the setup. Another option may read "cancel setup and restore previous system"...this one may be used if you cannot get the "resume setup" option after repeated tries.
