    What would the issue be that you can not repair? If the virus has corrupted your OS, simply re-install Windows.

Did you try to create a new partition? Or a utility to do a "Low-Level" format of the drive?

It all depends, if your dell inspiron vista (you didnt wrote the model) uses DDR2 memory you cant, because the B110 uses DDR memory modules (it's an older system). Probably your dell comes with DDR2.

    Hi smokinnnn4, sorry If i didnt explain myself correctly. The answer is no, you cant use the memory from the B110 because they dont use the same type of memory.

    ok c:\format.exe doesnt work anymore. If you had a virus and want to reinstall OS, you just get the DVD from Vista and put it in. Then restart the computer and press F12 to get the boot menu. Boot from CD/DVD and follow the instructions.

Hi, you can use the windows xp driver from here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4M_8600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

As long its 32 bit system you are running.
The driver does not exist for windows vista.

You maybe have to find the name for the
wireless adapter in the device manager.

Select network and download the driver.

Hope this will help you.

Hi

Most common cause of this problem is the Operating System (Vista) if its starting to crash or infected of a virus. Reinstalling the Vista should fix this problem but if the problem persists it only means that your Hard Drive are having bad sectors and needs to be replaced.Thanks

Try system restore if it works normally after this also turn system restore off and back on again as the problem could also lie in system restore information.
