Try starting in SAFE MODE. You may have a virus that kills the booting.

Hit F8 at the right time during booting to get into safe mode.

Dell Vostro 200 will not connect to internet, what can I do?


check that the lan connection isn't disabled.
go into control panel>network connections.
I would disable it and then re-enable it, that sometimes works. if there is no lan connection showing then you need to download it onto a usb stick from the dell website and install it on the vostro. Product Support Dell US

Stop error screen


If you have installed a new hardware or software, it may be conflicting with the installed program there by causing your system to dump it time the conflict occurs. You have to boot the system to safe mode and uninstall the new software or remove the new hardware and restart the system. Your system is supposed the boot okay.

Dell Vostro 1220 shutdown/restart problem


Frankly speaking, Vostro has many intermittent issue like slow start-up, application error during shutdown or restart. Sometimes it even crashed with our co antivirus, acrobat writer etc..

We have reported many cases to DELL but unfortuntely no fix solution. We have at least 5 machines out of 20 reported similar issue.

Tell you, the best is to upgrade to Latitude if you budget permit. No point wasting time on this.

Unofficially, dell engineer told our IT engineer that vostro has many problem and not really suitable for office use... that is why the price so cheap...

From my true heart. good luck!

Dell Vostro 200 desktop with Windows XP is not able to handle two


Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.

the following will re-install windows without destroying your stuff but you must follow it exactly !!!!!!!
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. To Repair Install, press ENTER
    \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" height="21" alt="To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER." src="http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/note.gif" width="15" border="0" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. 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, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
  7. good luck beergut707
