Bootmngr missing


You will need a operatingsystem disk or a repair disk to fix it. Insert it in the drive then bootfrom it. You want to get to a dos command prompt (black screen with whitelettering) and type the following commands. Press ENTER after eachcommand.
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

Reboot and see if the problem is solved. If not get back to the doscommand prompt and run the check disk utility.Torun the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating systemdisc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want toget to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type thefollowing command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

MRB Error message on Gateway laptop 6510GZ. how can we resolve?


First of all I'm not this smart. I found it and pasted it here for you from:
http://www.pcpowerguide.com/windows/damaged-mbr-error-message/

They get all the credit!

MBR is the acronym for Master Boot Record. The master boot record is located in the boot section of your hard drive, which is the first sector on the first platter. When you boot your computer, the master boot record tells the computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) where to find the bootstrap code for the operating system.
So if the MBR is corrupted, the BIOS can't find the operating system and you can get error messages like the following ones:
  • Missing operating system
  • Error loading system
  • Invalid partition table
Looks pretty scary, doesn't it?
However, it is usually not that hard to fix a corrupted MBR and usually the rest f the hard drive is just fine and will boot normally once your fix the master boot record.
What Causes Damage to the MBR? A lot of things can cause damage to the MBR such as viruses designed to corrupt the boot sector. Some of them copy the original MBR to another file. Others do this by overwriting the MBR with virus code. In fact viruses and malware are one of the most frequent causes but, any file can become corrupted especially files that are accessed as frequently as the MBR.
How to Fix the MBR The stapes to fix the MBR are slightly different in the different versions of Windows. So I will cover them separately.
Windows XP
  1. Insert your XP installation disk in the CD-Rom and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Welcome to Setup screen, press "R" to open the repair console
  4. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  5. At the command prompt, type fixmbr and press enter
  6. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  7. Remove your installation CD
  8. Restart the computer
Windows Vista
  1. Insert your Vista installation disk in the CD-ROM and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Install Windows screen, fill in the language and location options and then click Next
  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. Select the Windows Vista operating system and click Next
  6. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  7. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  8. When a command prompt appears, type bootrec.exe and press enter to fix the MBR
  9. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  10. Remove your installation CD
  11. Click Restart in the System Recovery Options window
Windows 7
  1. Insert your Windows 7 installation disk in the CD-ROM and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Install Windows screen, fill in the language, Time and Keyboard Input options and then click Next
  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  6. When a command prompt appears, change to the boot directory
  7. Now type bootsect /nt60 SYS and press enter to fix the MBR
  8. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  9. Remove your installation CD
  10. Reboot the computer

When I try to boot up my Dell Latitude /D500 laptop.. I get the following blue Screen error message: The error message says: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent...


That error is usually caused by corruption in the Operating System files. You don't mention what version of windows you are running so will try to walk you through options with XP, Vista and 7. Vista and Windows 7 are the same steps to hopefully resolve this issue.

Windows XP:
You may need your Installation Disc for these procedures. First however, try doing this:
Turn the machine on and start tapping F8, and keep tapping. You should come to a black screen with several options on it. The top 2 options will be Safe Mode and Safe Mode With Networking. Select one of those, it doesn't matter which. When you highlight the option using your Up or Down arrow hit enter.
It will take you to the list of Operating Systems Should just be the primary system choice. Look and see if it also lists the Recovery Console. If it does arrow down to it and hit enter. If it does not then you will need the Dell Installation Disc for your operating system handy. Put it in the CD drive and during boot up hit F12 to get the boot menu or whatever option it shows for it on your screen. Select CD and hit enter. It will load several files and come to the first setup screen hit the R for Recovery Console. Once in the console you will need to select the windows installation option by entering the number of the choice. Hit enter.
If it asks for the administrator's password, just hit enter, by default it is blank.
You should see a command prompt with a blinking cursor like: C:\> and the cursor blinking next to it. Type in this command: chkdsk /R and hit enter it should start showing it scanning your drive for errors. Let it run all the way through and watch the results as it will tell you it has found one or more corrupted files and repaired them. At that point you will have a blinking cursor again waiting a command. Just type in the word EXIT and hit enter. it will reboot. should go on into windows.

For Vista and windows 7, turn the machine on and tap F8, and when you get to the boot options screen it should default to Repair Computer. Hit enter and follow the screen instructions.
If you do not have the Repair Computer option on that screen, then you will need the Installation Disc for this as well. Put it in the cd drive and select the Boot Menu option. When it gets to the Installation screen using the CD you will see an option to Repair Computer. Select it and follow the screen prompts.

You will get to a Advanced System Repair screen. When you see it click on Command Prompt.

When you get the black command window type in: chkdsk /R and hit enter. It will warn you that you cannot do this on a locked drive. It will ask you if you want to dismount the drive by choosing Y for yes or N for no. Type Y and hit enter. It will take over from there and scan for and repair any corrupted files it finds. When it is done type in: EXIT and hit enter and then click on Restart Computer.

That should fix you up.

I am installing a recovery disk for an emachines computer and i get error message stating that the system 32hal.dll is missing or corrupt. i cant get back to the windows screen to install the missing file...


You have to start your PC with the XP cd-rom install disk, if you have
one.

Then, when you come to the screen with the following option displayed :


To repair a Windows XP installation using
Recovery Console, press R.


Then press [R] to start 'Recovery Console'

When confronted by a prompt asking you for Administrator password - just
press [ENTER]

Once in RC has started - type the following command :


expand x:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll


(where [x:] is your cd drive-letter)

*NB If SP3 is installed - then the command you type must be :


copy c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\hal.dll c:\windows\system32


....instead, as the files are of two different revision levels
(versions).


Then reboot.

Cant access my pc at all coming up with load Dlls


Insert the installation CD and restart/reboot the computer. Hit Enter or Space or any key when the plain text prompt at the top of the screen asks if you want to boot from the CD. Usually, you don't want the first Repair option it gives you because that puts you into the unfriendly DOS/command environment. Choose the second Repar option (if you get it, which you don't always) on the next screen and tell it to repair the installation of Windows that it should find for you. It might ask for the Administrator password. If there is no password, just leave that blank, and proceed.

Dell M70 laptop won't boot up


If you have a Windows installation CD, you can use the Recovery mode to attempt to fix the problem.

Turn on computer, insert CD into drive.
Press any key to boot from CD
Windows installation process will start
After a few minutes, a screen will come up telling you to hit ENTER to install Windows, or to press R to enter the Recovery Console
Press "R"
You will be asked which operating system
Most times there is only one option, select 1
At command prompt, type "fixboot" and press ENTER, if it asks if you're sure, type "Y" press ENTER again
Then, at command prompt, type "fixmbr" and press ENTER, again, type "Y" and press ENTER if it asks.
Type "exit" and press ENTER to exit recovery console and reboot.

Give that a try and see if it will boot for you.
