Explorer, a key part of windows, isn't automatically loaded at boot. This is a sign of severe corruption - it's time to reinstall.

Hello i have a Dell Optiplex 745 it boots up and starts windows 7 normally then the the screen goes black does anyone know how to fix it?


Can you boot into Safe mode. It is usually done by pressing a specific key during the POST session. If you can, then boot into safe mode and delete the Video Driver. Reboot. TYou should have a VGA display, download and install the video driver again.

How to installing the windows 7 in optiplex 745


Installing windows 7 isn't difficult. First, you need the disk to install it from. If you don't have that, Microsoft no longer sells this version, so it will be harder.
If you want to keep your programs and data, there is a package, "PC Mover" that you can buy that will help you preserve all your data and programs. I've used this many times to help upgrade systems like yours.

\WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM computer says that its either missing or corrupt. how do I fix


Dean,

To resolve this issue you can boot to Windows disk and run the "Repair Install" on one of the setup screens. This should repair the system32/config allowing you to boot back into Windows.

Step 1

Place the Windows XP Professional installation CD into your computer's disc drive and restart your computer.
Step 2

Press any key on your keyboard when you see the message "Press any key to boot from CD..." appear on the screen.
Step 3

Press the "Enter" key and then press the "F8" key.
Step 4

Select your Windows XP installation and then press the "R" key. The repair installation process begins, and takes about 30 to 45 minutes to finish. Once the process has finished, you can use the computer again.


Thank You,

Dell Optiplex 745 having all kinds of problems getting blue screens, but I can reboot and it works fine. I installed a new hard drive on this computer. I am not able to install the update for windows xp...


Hello,

The main failure on the Optiplex 745 units are capacitors on the motherboard. When they fail you can get all sorts of strange problems - no boot, blue screen issues, no video or distorted video. Open your machine up and look for bulging capacitors on the board. Here is a link to a guide showing what to look for on the motherboard to determine if your problem is capacitor related or not.

http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/dell-optiplex-745-repair/

If you do find bulging capacitors on the motherboard then more than likely that will be your problem. You can replace the capacitors and your board will be as good as new.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

My Dell Optiplex 745 "No Boot Device Available"


No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.
