Repair windows or reinstall it, also if you dont have anything important or you can save it after the re-installation I advise to format and Install windows again.

My screen is blue and I dont have the disk


Try running the restore software that is built into the computer on the protected partition; this is usually available by pushing the "F10" key upon boot up, that is, as soon as you see the dell logo on the screen, push the "F10" key. You could also try to boot the computer into "SafeMode" by pushing the "F8" key at boot up. Safemode will only offer a limited repair option but it will allow you access to diagnostic and repair options in windows.

There is a problem with the start up files of windows. Try going into the "Start-up Repair" option of the windows, either by inserting the Windows installation CD and then rebooting the notebook or by pressing F1, F8 or F11 (depends on the manufacturer).
Please take a look at the following link from the Dell's website for further details: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=DSN_316068&isLegacy=true

I have a problem with my del optplex gx260 is keep on restarting, why?


If the computer is restarting continously at the windows loading screen then you have a windows issue of which your computer is "Blue Screening" and restarting. In this case you arent really seeing the blue screen as windows restarts immediately as the error occurs. My advice to you is to press F8 before the windows loading screen and choose to "not restart automatically on error" that is not entirely what it says but its to that regard. If that doesnt work try pressing the "Pause Break button continously until the blue screen appears, read the error and google it to find out what is causing the error and go from there. Please feel free to get back to me on this if my information doesnt help or i need to explain further.

Try a Repair Install with your WinXP Bootable CD. If Repair option fails you will have to do a Clean Reinstall of WinXP as a last resort.
Some details:
1. Boot with your WinXP CD
2.At the "Welcome To Setup" screen, Choose the option:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER. DO NOT choose !!!! To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R. IGNORE
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3
3. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations. 4.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, under the Circumstances you are in the next option will be Clean install
5. I this does not work it might be your memory --download and burn to cd memtest (http://www.memtest86.com/) and test your memory for errors.

HELP!! (dell precision 340) im getting 4 screens when i turn on m


Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>

If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"
