Error code Oxc0000185

Here is some info on fixing a corrupted UEFI Partition:
Firstly, boot from a Windows 8 recovery drive (CD/DVD/USB). If you don't have a recovery drive (and this is likely because most new machines don't come with one), then you will either have to install the drive into another Windows 8 machine or obtain a Windows 8 recovery drive, or boot from the recovery partition of the boot drive (If this option works at this point). Don't even bother with the automated recovery process, it will not work as it cannot find a Windows partition.
  1. You will need to choose the language and time settings.
  2. Choose 'Repair Your Computer'.
  3. Choose 'Troubleshooting'.
  4. Choose "Advanced Options'.
  5. Next choose 'Command Prompt'.
Next, we're going to use the DISKPART tool to verify that the UEFI partition has a drive letter assignment.
Enter 'DISKPART' (Enter)
(In this test case we removed all other drives except the boot HDD and DVD, so we know the disk 0 is our boot HDD)
DISKPART> sel disk 0
Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
DISKPART> list vol
There was no drive letter assignment to our UEFI partition (volume 3) so we need to assign a drive letter.
DISKPART> sel vol 3
Volume 3 is the selected volume.
1). If you know that you have a extra drive letter available use it here, otherwise skip to 2.
DISKPART> assign letter=E:
2). If you are unsure what the drive chain is or if you don't know what drive letters are avalable use:
DISKPART> assign
If all went well, DiskPart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point. You can verify that a drive letter was assigned by "DISKPART> list vol" again.
Exit DiskPart tool (Enter EXIT)
Next, we need to change to the boot folder on the UEFI volume.
Change to the UEFI volume into the boot folder. Use drive E: here or whatever drive letter was assigned above.
cd /d E:\Boot\
Now we will need to enter three command lines to repair the BCD store.
For MBR drives: (Drives < 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /fixmbr
  3. bootrec /rebuildmbr
For GPT drives: (Drives > 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /rebuildbcd
That's it, if all went well the BCD store should be repaired, and the system will once again boot.

I have a dell inspiron 700m willnot display

Hi There,

The best way to begin the troubleshooting process for your problem is to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If you don't have one at home I hope you can ask a friend to allow your to use theirs for a few minutes.

With the laptop off, and the monitor off, connect your laptop to the external monitor. Next turn on the monitor. Finally, turn on your laptop and on one of the F keys in the row of keys above the regular keyboard letters should be one key that either shows what looks like a little monitor screen/screens or as on most Dells, one key will say CRT on it and it's usually the F8 key.

Hold down the fn key in the lower left hand corner and hit the F key as described above that's assigned to make you switch from the laptop screen to the external monitor.

If the monitor ahows what you'd normally see on your laptop screen, then you know that your laptop screen has worn out and needs to be replaced. If both screens are black then your problem is much more serious and the odds are greatest that your video card/controller on the motherboard has failed. For most laptop repair guys this means replacing the entire motherboard.

I sincerely hope the problem is the first one because it's the least expensive. If not, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but then you at least know the truth of your situation. Also, a favor? If the worst case scenario, remember I didn't do it (grin) so please don't thrash my reating. I'm a professional laptop repair specialist just trying to lend a hand.

Best of luck to you.

The problem is your download speed -- your computer cannot download fast-enough to get "ahead" of your viewing.

The opposite situation would be a friend giving you 10 donuts per minute to eat, but you can only eat 1 -- the "excess" donuts will "overflow" your dessert plate.

Pay more money per month to your ISP to get a faster connection.

USB External harddrive not accessible

A couple of possibilities:

1. Not enough power to the drive.
Does the external have its own power supply?
If not it may not get enough power from the USB bus to spin the drive up properly. Put your ear up to the drive and compare how it sounds when you have it in the desktop.
I have an external drive that has an extra connector for just that occasion. If yours does not have this , you will need to get a powered USB hub to rectify the situation.

2. Corruption on the drive. While it is plugged into the desktop , right click on the drive in explorer , go to properties , then tools and error checking. Run a scan and fix any errors.

User password

"is btheir anyway i can reset or override the password" ... Absolutely yes. He has nothing over you because you do NOT NEED him to provide it to you. However, depending upon your exact situation, you'll probably be left with relying on method 3 (below). If so, you'll need the use of another computer with 1) internet access, and 2) CD burning capability. Additionally, depending upon how much you know about computers, you may need the assistance of someone with simply a fair amount of general computer user skills.

I'll presume you mean Windows password. If that is the case, you are then currently able to boot the laptop until it reaches a Windows welcome/login point. If so, read on...


It may help to understand the distinction of the word "administrator". There is:

  1. The ACCOUNT which is named "Administrator" (unless it has been subsequently renamed since initial install).
  2. The WORD "administrator" as it relates to the TYPE OF PRIVILEGES (aka credentials) a user may be assigned. These privileges are akin to a master key granting FULL access to your operating system.


If you're lucky (for this situation only I mean), there has never been a password assigned to the 'Administrator' account (applies to Windows XP only).

If the "Administrator" account is not shown at your Windows Welcome Screen:
  1. Depress and hold down, then release (in sequence) the keys 'Ctrl'+'Alt'+'Del' two times (or more if a sequence isn't recognized successfully).
  2. A "Log On to Windows" dialog will display. Type "Administrator" (without quotes), leave the password field blank, and then hit Enter.
  1. Login to Windows as any user (with known password) that has administrator privileges.
  2. Start > Run ... > type "control userpasswords2" (without quotes), then "OK".
  3. Select the user account you can't remember the password to, then click "Reset Password".
  4. Type a new password in "New password" and "Confirm new password", then "OK".
NOTE: You may (you shouldn't, but you may) also have a user account that's NOT password protected AND has administrator privileges.


If methods 1 and 2 are not successful, you're then left with the big gun: "Ultimate Boot CD for Windows" (UBCD4Win). It's a FREEWARE multi-functional recovery boot disk. One of its MANY included utilities is "Sala Password Renew". With it, you can create a new local user with administrator privileges. You can then successfully use method 2 to reset the "Administrator" account. Go to this website and follow the guidance found there. There are other FREEWARE all-purpose recovery boot disk available (TRK-Trinity Rescue Kit, UBCD, etc.), but in my opinion, UBCD4Win is your best choice.

NOTE: If compelled to use this method, look upon it as a blessing in disguise. It's an invaluable tool you'll likely be relieved to have many times over in the future. In fact, you should strongly consider it even if you don't NEED it "this time". After all, the time to have this disk is BEFORE you need it.

Good luck, and please post back and let me know how things turn out, or if you have any further questions.

Cant See Post

The 2 beeps are an error code. It can mean a couple of things; 1. Bad or improperly seated RAM; or 2. Bad or improperly seated video card. The F2 option will take you into bios setup. But I would try the video card option first as it is the usual culprit in this situation. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

Can you please clarify this
  1. Do you keys not respond at all
  2. Do you get numbers when you want letters or otherwise letters to numbers
  3. Or does it respond only in one mode numbers only or letters only
My suggestions
  1. If its situation 1 then try reastarting your machine, and unblocking the num lock and vice versa
  2. If its situation 2 just try unblocking num and blocking back by turning on or off the num lock, its just num lock or FN + Num lock in some PC
  3. If its situation 3 just restart your computer.
