Dell Dimension 5150 (& WinXP) - failure to boot up


you could try booting into safe mode, then you could try a system restore
look for the F8 option at the bottom after the first boot window,

youll know youve got it when you get the option to boot into safe mode, if this works you should get to your desktop, if you get the admin login its normally admin as user and leave the password blank.

if you cant get into safe mode, wait till you gt the recovery disks and try a system recovery before reinstalling

First refix your RAM.
Then boot youre computer with winxp
Then go to recovery console.
Then type in command prompt "chkdsk /r"

Thats it.

Blue Screen error


Try to boot the PC without the XP Home CD in the CD drive, and keep pressing the F8 key until it comes up with a boot menu that includes a Safe Mode option.

If you had the XP Pro CD I'd suggest doing a recovery, but XP Home doesn't have that option I don't think.

You may have to try a few times until the boot menu appears. Don't hold the F8 key down - keep pressing it!

When you get into Safe Mode, right click on My Computer and choose Properties. Then go to Hardware tab (i think - not in winXP right now) and choose device manager. Just remove the Video Card from the list altogether, and then restart. Should force it to use generic video card drivers.

then check your video card model and look for the updated driver

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem


this is more like a workaround that I used on a laptop which cd room drive just failed (and which I did not want to replaced as it was more expensive than the whole laptop)

If you can't select the device you want to boot from.. you may want to partition your hdd and format it so it loads a dos operating sytem .. use another machine and a win98 startup disk to do this then copy your I386 folder from your winxp cd into the new formatted hdd so when you put the hdd back into the IBM machine it loads dos and then going into the I386 folder you can run a winnt command for you to install the os.

DISK BOOT FAILURE


If you reinstalled the memory correctly it should fire right back up. But try this, when press the power button, hit delete and go to set up, under PC management find the Boot Order String, select the Floppy as the first device if you have one, the Hard drive as the second Device and the CD/DVD as the last device. Should go straight to the hard drive as the primary boot device. Hope this helps.

Re:System not booting


Hey, that a common problem if your harddrive is SATA

but first, check that your harddrive is seen by bios.
If not check cables, you can try reconnecting the cables incase seomthing isnt touching.

If hdd is seen and working

your going to need a SATA driver for your windows setup.
Il tell you more about that after you have checked the harddrive.

Ntldr is missing, press ctrl,alt and del to restart


the ntldr.sys file is used to boot your winxp, this should have got corrupted, or your boot sector in the harddisk should have got corrupted.

what file system was used on your harddisk ( Fat32 or NTFS)

if it is Fat32 then you can try this. boot your system with win98 boot cd or floppy. after booting insert your windows xp cd in the cd drive copy the file ntldr.sys from the i386 folder to the os root dir(usually the c:) you will receive a overwrite message. do the over writing. thats all.
now restart your system normally (harddisk). it should be fine.

if the file system is NTFS, i am sorry to say, if you dont know the admin pass, you will have to repair the installation with the winxp cd,

for this boot your system with the winxp cd, on the first screen, press enter( for a fresh installation), then press F8, now you will be notified that there is already a window installation, on this screen press 'R' to repair the installation. follow the online screen.

Actually this is a nothing but just a reinstall of the OS. you may have to reinstall most of the os updates. and a few softwares also.

Hope this helps you.
