Question about Dell XPS M1210 Notebook

4 Answers

Hi, I have a Dell XPS M1210 laptop. I was in the middle of printing a document when suddenly it restarts, then this blue screen appeared. I restarted my laptop thinking that it may solve the problem, but now it keeps displaying the same blue screen. I can't go into Safe Mode and I can't even go into Last Known Good Configuration Mode, too! Please help!! Thanks in advance.

The problem that you have experienced is that your system shot down while it was in the middle of something, and now, some important system files have been lost. That is the reason why you cannot enter SAFE MODE either. The only solution is to re-install your OS. If you had some important data on it, you can try recovering it using some LIVE OS that doesn't have to be installed

Testimonial: "OK, how to re-install my OS? I can't get past the blue screen. And one more question: What is LIVE OS? Thanks. "

  • vojvodabudva Nov 20, 2009

    Live OS is an operating system that does not have to be installed to run its. if you want to download it look for it as "live os rapidshare", and then follow the rapidshare links to download it. you run it from the dvd, and that is why it will be slower than the regular OS, but it works just as fine as the normal one. to transfer your data you can use total commander that comes with it.
    to reinstall your system you need an WIndows installation disk, and the windows product key (this is something you should have got with your last installation).
    after saving all of your data, insert a windows disc into the dvd rom, and start your computer. press DEL to enter BIOS, and under boot management, set CD-DVD as the first booting device
    now pree F10
    now enter
    when it asks you do you want to load from the disk, press the space bar, and after that just read the text, and yu will understand what to do
    not very difficult

Dear affected consumers of the defective graphics card on the Dell XPS M1210, I would like to invite you to join in an alliance so we can file a class action law suit against Dell computers. I am willing to make a website myself so we can deal with this, I am very sure there are a lot of people willing to get on board, just because Dell's costumer service representatives don't want to help us doesn't mean that should be the end of it. This is a common wide spread problem and cannot be dismissed as normal tear and wear , lets show Dell that we consumers have rights and together we can fight them back. Just reply with an e-mail that you can be contacted regarding this and only reply if you have a defective Dell XPS M1210 laptop. Just say "count me in" or something similar, when enough people is on-board, we can start a forum/blog/discussion board to sort out the details. The sooner we get enough people, the sooner we can take action. For now you can help by forwarding this message to other affected consumers with the same issue or posting this paragraph into forums including the following contact e-mail: Thank you for your time, sincerely, Yavier Martinez

It sounds like you have a motherboard failing, but before you thing about replacing it or call Dell, run a deep virus scan to make sure you don't have a serious virus infection. Run McAfee, Norton Anti-virus or Kaspersky Anti-virus scan.

Dell XPS M1210 broken

I'm thinking you might be having a hard drive problem or the file structure is really messed up.
You had Win 7 and tried to install Win XP. Now it is confused, no doubt.
Here's the first thing I would do:
Put in your Win XP disk and boot from it.
At the first question it asks (about repair or install) choose repair.
It will then ask you which Windows Installation--choose #1 if it's there.
Hit enter if it asks for your password.
Now at the command prompt, type chkdsk /?
Depending on your version of XP, it will show you the switches you can use. Use the one that checks the entire drive. Might be chkdsk /P or maybe /F
Anyway, use the one that does the whole drive and let it run. Then try your reinstall unless you have file problems that aren't fixed.
BTW--your Dell should have a utilities option if you hit F12 at startup that will allow you to check your hard drive.
