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.

This is a hard drive issue, remove hardware and reseat it back into place, sometimes this will work and run fine. But it is more than likely your hard drive will need to be replaced.

Will not boot...only blank screen with blinking cursor. how do I fix it


You have hard drive issues or windows files are corrupted, remove hardware and reseat it back in place, sometimes this will get the hard drive working, if this fails! set the boot order to DVD CD and try and run the recovery disc, if no change! it means the hard drive has issues and may have to be replaced.

Dell laptop will not boot up?


Turn system on by pressing FN and the power button, this should start the system diagnostics. If hard drive diags pass, then new would be boot to the WIndows CD and Run Repair (Vista) or boot to recovery console (XP) once in recovery console, run the command CHKDSK /R
If running Vista repair, you may need to run the repair tool up to 5 times (Each pass makes a partial repair, it make take more than one to complete all issues)

If Diags fail, replace the hard drive.

I have an Inspiron 5100 that is running very slow. I want to format the hard drive (40 GB)and reinstall XP Home. I hit the F12 key while booting and the computer tries to boot from the CD drive but it does...


This would be a good time to upgrade to Windows XP Professional. I think your disk from Dell is bad because you are going about it the right way.

One suggestion is to put your windows cd in the cdrom drive. Browse the cd for a file called setup, click on that and setup should run from there.

Format pc laptop


if you wish to do a full system factory recovery, on boot up press Alt & F10, or press F2 or Del on boot up, select the cdrom as first boot device and insert windows cd, save settings and exit for a reboot.

When prompted to press enter to boot from cd, do so and the option to repair or install will appear, choosing install will format your drive.

Hello,

You may have a boot sector virus. At my bench I would remove your hard drive and install it on one of my towers and run a virus scan on your hard drive. Recovery from a boot sector virus is very difficult using tools found in Hiren's Boot disc, a cdrom that contain various programs to recover a hard drive.

Lastly, you may simply have lost the boot strap loader (even though this doesn't make any sense if you have used your recovery CD and recovery partition with success. If you boot and hear a beep, press F8 repeatedly immediately after the beep and you'll receive the recovery bootup option screen, choose Safe Mode first and see if that works, if not choose last know good configuration and otherwise if offerred choose use System Restore.

If all this fails you as a user you need service from a professional.

Hope this has helped or fixed ya.

Sounds like a failing hard drive or corrupt file system.

 

Or possibly you have a non bootable disk in the floppy drive, assuming it has one as most laptops dont.

 

Is this Windows XP? If so, try booting from the XP cd. At the menu, choose R for recovery console.

 

In the recovery console, type in CHKDSK /R and let it run, it may take well over and hour to run, if it runs at all. If the recovery console is unable to load, or chkdsk wont run, you may have a failing hard drive.
