My 2 year old stepped on{or dropped } my Dell xps m140 and cracked the screen. I thought I would replace it myself..Before I do, I hooked up an external monitor to see if it still operates properly, well...


This error is also cause by the hard drive storage of your pc notebook, if you know how to locate the hard drive you just have to remove it for a while and then put it back, some loose connection of the hard drive cause the problem, if you find it still not working, you need to repair the system startup of Windown XP it is corrupted that's why it wont start.

Before attempting to check the physical parts of your notebook, try first to check and recover the Windows startup system.

In windows startup repair you can use the Windows Recovery Console.

Source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058

Here's the step to start in Recovery Console:

  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive and restart your computer. If you are prompted, select any options required to start (boot) from the CD.
  2. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password.
  5. At the command prompt, type Recovery Console commands, and then you can refer to the commands that are listed in the "Available commands within Windows Recovery Console" section.
  6. At any time, you can type Help for a list of available commands.
  7. At any time, you can type Help commandname for help on a specific command. For example, you can type help attrib to display the help on the attributes command.
  8. At any time, you can exit Windows Recovery Console by typing Exit at the command line.
After you start the Windows Recovery Console, you receive the following message:

Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log on to ?

(To cancel, press ENTER)

Enter the number for the appropriate Windows installation. In this example, you would press 1. Then, Windows prompts you to enter the Administrator account password.

Note If you use an incorrect password three times, the Windows Recovery Console closes. Also, if the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database is missing or damaged, you cannot use the Windows Recovery Console because you cannot be authenticated correctly. After you enter your password and the Windows Recovery Console starts, type Exit to restart the computer.

Use the fixboot command to repair the startup boot of your notebook.

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.

Enter the Administrator Password

    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  4. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
