Is it your computer...lol. None of my bussiness but if I were you try to save all of the files that you can...the ones you cant live without...and restart your computer with your disk. Format your hard drive and install windows.

Otherwise the default password is admin admin. username and password. :P

1. Run "lusrmgr.msc" to reset Dell Windows password.
In Windows 8/7/Vista/XP, there is an easy way to reset a forgotten user account password by just run the lusrmgr.msc.

Step 2. Click "start" button, press "Win+R" to open "Run box". Type in "lusrmgr.msc" and hit Enter.
Step 3. Local Users and Computers appears, all user accounts of your computer will be list, right-click your user name and select "reset password".

I have 9100 dell desktop. I was having problems with comupter and had a virus scan going and then computer rebooted and now I am unable to do anything. Not in safe mode or anything. It says it can't find...


Trying using a boot disk to see if your data is still there. I've seen this happen before and the virus had infected several of the files required for the computer to boot. When the virus scanner cleaned the files and the computer rebooted, the system files were gone.
What ever you do, do not reformat the hard drive or use a system restore disk until you are sure that you have no data that is recoverable on the drive.

Dell inspiron 9100 laptop computer boots up but


Your motherboard is not the problem. Try this. When you are on your main desktop right click your mouse. Click properties, click on settings. This will show you your monitor settings. Make sure that you have 32 bit clicked on quality. Change your screen resolution so your numbers are higher. Just change it to the resolution that you want. If this does not correct this go to this link to update your video driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
Just copy and paste. This will take you to the page for your laptop. Just select your operation system. Hope this helps.

Dell Dimension 9100 Blue Screen 0X00000024,00190293,86FA5B30,C000102,00000000. I tried to reinstall XP from CD and it says unable to locate Hard drive. Replaced Hard drive and tried again, same message....


Hope this help you...This is in relation to what your error code means, you'll need to check against the list.
  • Error 0x00000024 - This problem may occur if there is a conflict between Windows XP SP1 and the display adapter drivers that are currently installed.
  • Error 0x00000004 - occurs because your computer processor detected and reported an unrecoverable hardware error to Windows
  • Error 0x0000007b - occurs if your computer is infected with a boot-sector virus.
  • Error 0x80004005 - occurs because the account that is being used to access the page does not have access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC registry key.
  • Error 0xc0000005 - occurs because of memory corruption.
  • Error 0xc0000034 - caused by a missing system file (usually Ntdll.dll in the %systemRoot%\system32 directory.
  • Error 0xc0000006 - occur if there is not enough free hard disk space on the NTFS-compressed hard disk partition when the SIS filter tries to read compressed back pointer data streams from the SIS volume.
Another common reason can be malware and spyware that penetrate to your computer registry and started destroying it... that's why it's so important you fix your registry right now!
