If you are running Windows XP, open the DVD tray (if you could), then load the Win XP installer.

Restart the computer, and it will tell you to press any key if you would like to boot from CD.

Just hit any key and your computer should reboot using the CD.

Thank you and good luck!

DUH! It won't "reboot" from CD unless:
1. you are looking to do a reinstall of the OS - which is not a reboot!
2. Certain files on the HDD are missing such that the CD supplies them and the reboot continues from the HDD. This is seldom the issue, but I have seen it work at times.

Depending on what your issue is, you may be able to fix it without a reinstall, but the process is not for the faint of heart.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

I can't gey into my big fish acc., first i coundn't remember my password, but then i found it and it still won't work . What's the deal?


Try the password for more times.

And if you really can't rememeber it, you should reset it.As far as I know, Windows Password Reset is a great tool to reset windows password, just need 3 simple steps to do.

Step1:Download and install Windows Password Reset
Step2:Burn Windows Password Reset ISO file to CD/DVD,or USB.
Step3:Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows Password.

Hope it work for you.

My computer won't read the new camera I've got. Even after installing all info from cd. Have tried camera and it works on tv. It won't let recognise the device on problem either. What can I do?


A camera that works connected to a TV without software is not the proper device to connect to a computer. Check again with your packaging and instructions.
Having a camera working on the computer and then porting the video signal to a TV monitor is the preferred arrangement.
Install the software, reboot, then connect a PC camera, it should be recognized and be testable on Skype, etc.

I got the Farming Simulator 2011 today and wanted to play it so I put the CD in My Dell PC and it loaded but it won't install


have you tried to enter in the cd directory and run manually the setup? If so try to reboot the computer and try again. Can you try in a different computer to check if the problem is not from the CD?

Keep getting checkpoint errors, and have changed Sys Battery , reset Bios and when i boot it ,it goes to Dell logo and keeps trying to reboot. Windows will not load.


Try going to the BIOS and see if it reboots from there. If it does, then it is most probably a hardware problem. You can try re-seating the memory modules and If you have multiple modules, try them one at a time.
If it does not reboot while you are in the BIOS, then the problem lies on Windows. Get your DELL Restore CD or your Operating System CD and insert it to the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 while seeing the Dell logo, that should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.
Good Luck.

How do i reboot my window vista xp laptob if I


Your DELL computer should have been shipped with a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Reinstall Windows from those disks.

If you don't have the disks, telephone Dell, and they will courier-ship a set of CD-ROMs to you.
