You most likely need to re-install Windows using a Dell Recovery CD to get your computer operating again. This process will delete your data unless the data is stored on another partition on the hard drive.
To recover your data before re-installing Windows, remove the hard drive from the computer and attach the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this as an external haed drive, you can then open the various folders and files to copy and back them up. After you have completed this task, return the hard drive to the Dell computer and try to fix the computer.

Trying to start my windows xp, but i got a black screen that states "sorry for the inconvenience windows did not start up sucessfully" it said to highlight what command desire. start windows normally...


Your PC has entered the netherworld (the mysterious regions below Windows).

Start to "Windows with Command Prompt" and execute the MSDOS command SFC (System File Check) - with your Windows Install CD handy (SFC will probably ask for it).

Once you get a command prompt (if you can), execute memory, and disk checks too (Why not?)

If you cannot get Windows with command Prompt to come up, execute ROM BIOS system checks - a bad memory location or card will cause a failure to boot, as will a bad Hard Drive HDA.

I had to replace a laptop's HDD last week after facing this exact same error.
Luckily it was a Dell Latitude E6400, and replacing the HDD is 2 screws and yank it out of the PCMCIA bus.

My dell inspiron 1525 has a black screen with a white cursor showing


First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.
4. In the User Interface it will show you some options to select. Once the Install screen comes up look on the lower part select Repair Your Computer. If will ask you to do Startup Repair, please do start up repair. If fails try the System Restore. If fails then step 5;
5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

I was trying to hook up my laptop (Dell Inspiron 2200)(windows xp) to my television. I managed to get the laptop to go to the tv screen, but when computer rebooted, I got a black screen and cannot get rid...


use the F8 button before windows starts. as the laptop show the manufacturer's screen. keep tapping it gently and fast until you get froted with the bootup options screen. Select whichever option reads the word "VGA" in it. Then it will boot into windows. Enter the multiple screen setup (could be hard given that screen could show all icons and windows big) and select proper settings. Restart the PC and ensure the options remain active.

Dell Inspiron E1405 Keyboard and touchpad stop responding when bootup gets to Windows password screen. Any ideas as to why? Thanks in advance.


could be a problem with drivers. Try to start windows in safemode. To start in safemode keep pressing F8 imediattly after the laptops starts and will show up a screen, choose safe mode. If in safemode works use system resotre and restore to an earlier time when worked.
