Several attempts to install windows 2003 on dell optiplex 780 have been unsuccessful. all i get each time is a blue screen.


Windows 2003? There is no operating system called "Windows 2003". There is Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows Milenium, Win Xp, Win Vista, Windows 7 ect. But no Windows 2003.

If you are trying to install an operating system on a Dell computer, put the disk in the cd or dvd drive on the pc and close it. Then turn the computer off and reboot it with the disk in the drive. After the computer reboots, it should recognize the disk in the drive and bring up the installation process automatically. Sometimes you have to reboot the computer 3 - 4 times in a row with the disk in the drive in order to get it to recognize the software and boot from that drive.

If the Dell does not have an operating system on it and you are trying to install windows from a disk, it may not auto recognize the program in the drive and the above instructions will not work. If this is the case, then you need to put the disk in the drive of the pc and restart/reboot it - and watch the computer screen as the pc restarts - look at the lower left side of the screen during the boot up process to see what keys you need to press to enter startup mode, or get into the bios system of the computer. when you boot up a pc, it will display the keys you need to press on the screen for a brief few seconds before the "windows" screen appears and it completes the start up. If the pc is running windows xp, the command keys to press during start up might be F2 - F8 or "press the delete key". The commands can differ depending on which version of windows you are using - and they can also vary by brand of pc too.

You need to put the pc into "safe mode" or get into the Bios system or restore area to install windows if the computer does not already have an operating system installed on it.

To put the pc into safe mode or get into the Bios System, you need to press the right keys during the start up - and do this before a picture appears on the screen or the windows display comes up.

Put the disk in the drive and reboot the pc. As soon as it starts to reboot, keep pressing the F8 key. If the pc does not go into Bios or say "loading safe mode" then immediately restart the pc and try again. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 attempts to make this happen. If the F8 command does not work after 4 tries, then try the F2 key. After four tries if that does not work - try pressing the delete key.

If you can get the pc into the bios system - use the arrow keys on the keyboard to scroll through the options and find the prompt that says "boot order". change the boot order to boot from the Cd or Dvd drive instead of the hard drive. Save after changing this setting and reboot the pc with the disk in the drive and it should boot from that disk to install the operating system. Try rebooting 2 or 3 times after changing the boot order to the disk drive to get it to boot from the cd. Then just follow the prompts to install the operating system and your done!

Laptop hp 550 giving blue screen restart, this blue screen indicates that there is system error and if it is a first time i have to restart my system but it was repeated more and more. given that i was...


Were you installing Windows when this first occurred? If so, are you reloading via pressing a key on the keyboard (recovery partition) or with an actual XP disc that matches your version?

I think that I would load via a CD, delete any or all existing partitions including the recovery partition, and do a clean install if that's what you want to do.

If you'd like to recover your system without reinstalling Windows, boot with CD in(borrowed if you don't have one and probably don't have), choose to install (don't go to Recovery Console) accept the license agreement, Windows will search for existing installations, choose to repair Windows.

If it will not boot from CD, you'll have to change setting in BIOS (boot order) so that it will. Instructions should be easy to find to do that. You'll have to hit a key at sometime to boot from CD.

Laptop starts and after a while of using a blue error box falshes on the screen and turns off comp I can't even read the blue box its sooo quick!


That is called the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
try a chkdsk:


Chkdsk
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! Type Chkdsk C: /R at the prompt.

Or try a XP repair:

XP repair
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 I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Is it a restart with a blue screen? Is it XP?
If it is XP do the following:
Boot the laptop with a Win XP cd.
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.
