Boot from cd


Usually when you get messages like this, this often it is malware. I assume your real problem is cleaning your system of this malware, not booting to a CD. Your best bet is to restore to a system restore point before this started happening. Google around for how to do that in your operating system. If you don't have a working system restore or that doesn't resolve your problem please follow this malware removal guide to the letter: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407

WRT your question about the boot disk:

A bootable optical disk is an ok approach but it is not a simple process. You will probably want to create this disk on another computer. The disk must be bootable (an instruction is written to the first part of the disk which is interpreted by your bios as bootable media). If your recovery program is a file that ends with .img or .iso then it is an optical disk image which is compressed. I'm assuming you have windows 7 based on the model of your laptop. If so you should be able to double-click the image file and it will open Windows Disk Image Burner where you select the burner drive letter and click the burn button. Once you've done all of that you may need
enter the bios to change the boot order. In the bios you should see a tabbed menu screen that has these headings:

Main ' Config ' Date/Time ' Security ' Startup ' Restart

The boot order is in the Startup menu. You'll want your optical drive (CD, DVD, or Blu Ray) as the top item in the boot order. Save and exit will save these settings and restart your computer. It should now boot the CD.

How do i get to recovery mode


Apart from the messy key combination, you can enter into recovery mode with help of android app onto your device. Just download "Quick boot" from Google play store and install it.
Open the downloaded app, you will see 4 options, Reboot, Recovery, Boot-loader, and Power Off. Just tap Recovery and your device will reboot in recovery mode automatically.

How do i restore it to factory settings?


First back-up all data- because all will be lost if you restore to factory settings

You can try "CTRL" + "F12" but that only works if there is a recovery console on a hidden partition ---otherwise
If you do not have a RECOVERY CD then contact Dell to purchase this Recovery CD for your model Dell computer or buy it on EBAY.
Boot up using the Recovery CD and follow the instructions.

The other way is to re-install Windows using a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop or on the side or back of the computer.

Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow the instructions.
Next install all of the Dell's device drivers.
Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 for XP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista)
Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone.
Next install all your programs - anti-virus etc.
Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for the latest updates).
Next copy your data back to the computer

The device drivers for your model computer/laptop can be downloaded from the Dell WEB support site.

To download the drivers from Dell WEB site, select your model desktop or laptop, or a better option, type in the Service Tag number,this is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). The Service Tag will open the page where the drivers specific for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Hi, I turned on the computer the way I normally do everyday, however one day I got some strange blue screen. Wasn't quite sure why so I rebooted by pressing the power button and waited about a minute then...


Hello,
The computer has two passwords which apprently you know, because they were recognized by the computer (Certified). But the computer did not boot.
Remove all unnecessary hardware (printers, camera if independent) and try to reboot in Safe Mode (F8 On boot) then restart.

If that works, fine; if not you will need to use the Recovery Console to repair the machine. You can access the Recovery Console by booting from the CD-Rom and using the repair (R) option. I suggest that you query the Microsoft Knowledge base about the Recovery Console before you use it.

Hope it helps.

EXPLORER WON'T RESPOND


i am sorry it is late i kind of read over the fact that your modem works and dowloaded xp sp3.
if your internet explorer doesnt go to any webpage check the following settings in internet explorer :
tools>internet options>connections
now if you work on a dial up modem your connection should be in there.
if its not just add one and follow the steps accordingly.

if your on a Local Area Network (LAN) this should be empty

also go to : Lan settings
in the same tab
and make sure no proxy info is entered that should all be off and empty.
you can click : Automatically detect settings
to on.

I rebooted my operating system windows xp-sp2.now in my leptop the com port is not showing.instead of this only bluetooth port is detecting .how i will solve this problem??


I would suggest that you run diagnostics on your pc to isolate the issue and identify if it is caused by a hardware failure or caused by a software glitch on the system.

You can also try to repair the OS if the problem lies within the platform itself.

Please follow instructions indicated herein....

XP REPAIR INSTALL

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the
boot order in the system BIOS. 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.
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,
read Warning #2 below!!
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.

Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet
when asked, enable the XP firewall
[ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283673 ]
before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the
firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click
the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the
Advanced [ http://michaelstevenstech.com/xpfirewall1.jpg ] page.

7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP
installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original
pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove
SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates isssued after the
service packs will need to be reapplied.

Service Pack 2 link. Copy and paste link into your browser.
