Have you tried a system restore and then booting up? I had an issue booting up with vista and tapping Alt+F10 during BIOS fixed, it seems to skip the corrupted part of the boot.

Need the windows memory diagonostic tool dell dimension E521


The memory diagnostic tool is built into Windows (at least from Vista and later versions). Thus the usual way to run the diagnostic, if Windows has loaded, is to search for mdsched.exe (Click on the Start button in Vista and Windows 7 or type memory from the Start Screen on Win8). Otherwise get a Windows install (or upgrade) disc or your system repair disc, boot to the CD/DVD (or tap F8 between the BIOS POST and the OS loading on some machines with Windows Recovery pre-installed) and go to the Repair your Computer option. View Advanced Options (after the initial recovery attempt fails) and choose the Windows Memory DiagnosticTool.
If you don't have a system install or repair disc, try to find someone who does. (Windows User Group members often have these discs.) Otherwise, try a different memory test that can be used as a LiveCD. MemTest86+ is a useful tool: http://www.memtest.org/ .
I hope this helps.

Hi i go to load windows n it comes up corrupt n error code OxOOOO14c n wont let me do anything wont even let me load my recovery disc or windows support disc


You mean error Oxcoooo14c? That means your system registry is corrupt, or even missing.

You can try this; and how to get Recovery Media info is also included:

Download the ISO file at the supplied link, and make a Bootable Startup Repair Disk from it.

Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.

At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu.

When you have changed that, insert that Bootable Disk you have made in the Drive, and reboot.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial148.html

Above link shows what the process looks like, and a how-to, as it loads to the Repair Options.

Neosmart contains the contents of the Windows Vista DVD's "recovery center," as we've come to refer to it. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, one could re-create this installation media with freely-downloadable media from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK kit, a multi-gigabyte download); but it's damn-decent of Microsoft to make this available to Windows' users who might not be capable of creating such a thing on their own.

Read all info at the website about creating and using it.

http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/


ISO Burner: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

It makes a very good Vista Startup Repair Disk.

You can do a Startup Repair, System Restore, etc from it.


It is NOT a reinstall disk.


And the 32bit is what comes normally on a computer, unless 64bits requested.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



How to obtain Vista recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.

There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.
See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.

Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.

Try the F8 Option to get into Safe Mode and try to do a System Restore:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/
Do System Restore in Safe Mode, if unable to do it in Normal Mode.
Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If that does not work > Try the Recovery disk to do a Startup Repair/System Restore > if that fails, reinstall Vista.

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.
