Ok, well the 0x80070057 error code typically occurs because of 3rd party driver issue!

so, this is long but a program that fixed this was removed (sad)

rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type: services.msc
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.
Now rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
a) Click Start, click Run, type
%systemroot%
...and then click OK.
b) Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c) Type SoftwareDistribution.old and then press ENTER to rename this folder.
Now click Start, and choose Run.
In the Run box, type: services.msc
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.
NB - You will lose your update download history but this is not that important really being a fresh comp!


good luck! lamby

Well if your problem is to back up your files, you already said that you can get into safe mode, you can attach an external hard drive or flash drive to copy your files from local drive. Remember to activate your OS system restore if your able to succesfully restore your system with your CD. You can change that settings on properties of "my computer".

Can not open windows....how to recover...? n i dont know how to solve this problem.... (vista - Dell Precision T3400)


  1. Boot from the Vista install disk
  2. Choose your language settings and click "Next"
  3. On the bottom of the screen click the link "Repair Your Computer"
  4. Select the Vista installation to repair and click "Next" and it will launch WinRE
    • The "Load Drivers" button will open a mini Windows Explorer, which can be used to search for drivers in case they are needed to access disk drives or other components. This mini Explorer is also very handy to perform file copy/move operations and change file-attributes.
The following options are available in WinRE: Startup Repair - It will repair the boot manager files and restore critical files required for booting Windows Vista.

This should solve basic bootup problems.
Or you could also do a Complete Repair which replaces your current Vista installation.

How to remove unknown device from vista?


If it is an unkown device in the control panel add and remove hardware section you can right click on the item and select to remove the hardware item.

If you need the item back use the add remove hardware "Detect new hardware" and it will find it again.

I have used this techique also when i needed to reinstall the current driver used by the hardware and windows would only say that it already has the best driver for the hardware.

hope this helps.

and also good anivirus practice is also good.

Malware bytes is a great program and it scans lightning fast.

If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.

First you should make sure you have the mircophone plugged into the correct jack. Since it is a Dell (with Vista) you have to make sure the jack you have it plugged into is activated. By default only the microphone jack in the back is activated, and much to my loss is why only one can be active at one time, it can only be one or the other. So, if one does not work (I 'assume' you used the one in the front, for it is more convienent) - try the other.
