Dell inspiron mini screen says "bootmgr is missing


You need to reboot the computer using the disk you made from Windows Backup and Restore. Watch your boot screen and look for "boot opions or boot order (words to that effect).

If always super important to create a Windows Startup Disk/Repair disk as soon as you power on your computer and go through the initial setup.

The next most important task is to create recovery disks. The ultimate task for any laptop or desktop computer is to create a system image backup onto an External Hard Drive. Why? Whenever you get infected or experience a major problem you are copy the system image back to your main drive and everything is in the state it was when you made the backup.


Files should be backed up on regular basis and having an External Hard dDrive always plugged into a USB port makes this a very simple task.

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.

Run PC Restore from the instructions below

If that fails, then you will need an External USB Optical drive to reload windows from using your Dell reinstall media that came with the system.

Dell inspiron 6000 laptop restore to fACTORY SETTINGS WAND TO DOWNLOAD A RESTORE


If you have the restore CD that came with it, then pop that in and it will walk you through the process, If not, then I know that those laptops are a few years old...follow this:

Dell created its own utility program for Windows Vista. Restoring to factory settings will reinstall Windows, Dell proprietary utilities and drivers, other third party drivers and all default settings. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

To Restore Windows XP:

Step 1: Back up all of your data. Typical items to consider when backing up are: email, address book, personal documents, pictures, music, favorites and desktop items.
Step 2: Remove all external peripheral devices, including USB-connected devices.
Step 3: Turn on the computer. If the computer is already on, reboot it. Step 4: Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously when the Dell splash screen appears. The Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."Step 5: Click "Confirm" at the warning message stating that all data will be lost. A "Progress" window will appear. Once the installation process has finished the message, "The system recovery process was successful" will appear.
Step 6: Click "Finish."
