NEED TO REINSTALL ALL SW INCLUDING VISTA. DRIVERS WILL NOT LOAD. DELL REINSTALLATION VISTA HOME BASIC 32 BIT SP1 WILL NOT RELOAD...ALL INSTALLS END IN ERROR.


start pc with CD, wen the option comes up to repair select it. on the black dos screen which will come up type chkdsk at the prompt and press enter
If the hard disk is not at fault then use the CD to install operating system and when it asks you which drive click on the drive and format it first.

If you don't have a disc and all your software is on another partition dell have set up, and you don't get the option to format before install I would suggest their back up software could be corrupt. Dell should support you with this.

I could sort this if I had the laptop in my hands but the situation is a bit unclear. If all else fails get windows 7 Available for about £40 on a student licence, and install that, any files you wanted to keep will be transferred to a folder called windowsOld so you won't lose anything and your laptop will be better and more stable than ever before.

Windows vista home basic problem (acer aspire 6930)


Unless you can find and verify you have an orignal CD there is nothing you an do but buy another license for th use of Vista. If you made a back up set up. Have yo ulooked at the bottom of the laptop. Most of the time it has the Vista sticker with the key for your windows use. reinstall and use that key.

Can I foramt Vista Partitions using xp cd?


Yes, Insert the Dell XP disc, and when your computer first stars, in the right hand corner there should be setup and boot devices. Choose boot devices and run off the disc. After that, there will be an option to Format All your drives, (even some you might not know about :P). From there you can install XP onto your laptop.
