When i turn my dimension 8200 on it will not boot i keep getting the black screen with the safe mode option but if i choose the start windows normally option it goes to the blue screen telling me to check...


Your operating system or Master Boot Record is corrupt. Which version of windows are you using?

It may be possible to repair the problem with your windows disk. Boot from the Windows disk but make sure you read the instructions for windows repair carefully because some options will format your hard drive.

To rescue the data here are some things I do:
Make a boot disk with USB support and transfer the contents of your drive ton an external harddrive. Or, you could place your hard drive in another computer as a slave drive and retrieve your files that way.

When i turn my dimension 8200 on it will not boot i keep getting the black screen with the safe mode option but no matter option i choose it aslways comes back to the black screen


if you have the windows xp disk, boot from it by pressing F12 upon turning on your computer. press 'R' to choose recovery console. you might be asked which windows installation you want to start, just press 1. when you see the console, enter the command 'fixboot' without the quotes. then type exit to restart your computer. hope it helps.

My Dell Dimension 8200 PC keeps re booting itself once it gets to the home page. i cant even hit the start button cause it restarts itself that fast! please help


As soon as u see the black screen...hit F8 repeatedly to get it into Safe Mode.....then go to system restore and reboot/restore system back on a saved day. Then run your virus protection and scan for malware. This should get you back online. You may need a full system scan to locate the effected DLL's anmd killl off your intruder.

Dear Sir:
This could be due to bad hard drive or file system damage if the below steps doesn't work please contact the dell support for hard drive replacement if you computer is in warranty.

If this is the case, restart the computer to the Recovery Console, and then use the chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.

To do this, follow these steps:
1. Start your computer by using the Windows startup disks, or with the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive. 2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option. 3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console. 4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER. 5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER. 6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer. If this procedure does not work, repeat it and use the fixboot command in step 5 instead of the chkdsk /r command.


Let me know if you need any further assistance and if you have a moment to accept and rate the solution I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,

Mohammed.
