Once you enter the setup and it loads the entire program, then you need to press the R key, which is for repairing the windows installation. This action will take you to the dos mode where further processing will be done. In the dos mode, system will ask you about installation place. Most of the people install their operating system in the C drive, which comes at number 1 option, so you need to press option 1. However, if you have so many partitions or you have installed the operating system then you need to choose the option according to your drive name. Here you need to enter your password as well, but if you have not set any password then you can simply press enter.
*Then there will be a c:\WINDOWS> command in a dos mode where you need to write, "Copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\windows. However, if you have different place of your installed operating system then you will write the address of that drive. This is the whole process and now you can eject the cd and can press exit to restart the system. Now this process will copy the correct NTLDR file from installation disk to your hard drive by making your system in the working condition.

My Dell inspiron 1545 loads up and asks for my password but then i just get a black screen with the cureser arrow, i don't know what to do to resolve this and would appreciate any advice?


This indicates hard drive issues or the windows files are corrupted. If you have a backup recovery disc, try and install the operational system, if no luck! have the hardware tested to see if you require a replacement hard drive.

I have a 18 month old inspiron 1545 and suddenly its display went to dead black. But still windows is loading up i can hear sounds and music but can't see a single blink on the display. Don't know...


Hi paramvirgull...

Hook your laptop to an external monitor and see if the screen comes on...if it does then your lcd screen is faulty and needs replacment.
If it does not come on then re-download your video driver/s. If that does not work.
Maybe your lcd inverter or backlight bulb is faulty and needs replacement.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

My Dell Inspiron 1545 PC notebook will not load to the WIndows screen. Once booted it just sits on a black screen with a moveable cursor. What can I do to stop this? thanks


Hi pebrouss,

Have you tried power drain? The easiest way to resolve this type of issue is by performing a power drain. Here's how you will do it.

1. First, turn off the unit completely. You may try pressing the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

2. Remove the unit from the power outlet.

3. Take out the battery from the system.

4. Press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

5. Put back the battery and plug the unit to the power outlet.

6. Turn on the system and observe it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I own a Dell Inspiron laptop. When I turn it on, the Dell logo appears and then the screen goes black. A cursor starts flashing then I get a message for a failure and it says the operating system is not...


You have a disk error that may or may not be recoverable. If you data is not backed up, get it done. A local shop could help if the disk is not totally destroyed.

There are a lot of things that you could try, but probably a waste of time.

I hit F1 key and screen is black...been in phone with Dell for over 45 minutes...help I am on another pc


when you hit F1 key it was on the Dell screen logo right? so after hitting the key F1 it just go straight black screen with a cursor?

since you where able to get display try. 1. turn off laptop make sure ac adapter is plug in. 2. while laptop is off press and hold on the Fn key then press power while pressing on Fn. 3. Check if a self-assessment will display and run on the screen. Just follow the prompt messages on the screen to guide you for the error messages which will help you to identify the problem.
