Several attempts to install windows 2003 on dell optiplex 780 have been unsuccessful. all i get each time is a blue screen.


Windows 2003? There is no operating system called "Windows 2003". There is Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows Milenium, Win Xp, Win Vista, Windows 7 ect. But no Windows 2003.

If you are trying to install an operating system on a Dell computer, put the disk in the cd or dvd drive on the pc and close it. Then turn the computer off and reboot it with the disk in the drive. After the computer reboots, it should recognize the disk in the drive and bring up the installation process automatically. Sometimes you have to reboot the computer 3 - 4 times in a row with the disk in the drive in order to get it to recognize the software and boot from that drive.

If the Dell does not have an operating system on it and you are trying to install windows from a disk, it may not auto recognize the program in the drive and the above instructions will not work. If this is the case, then you need to put the disk in the drive of the pc and restart/reboot it - and watch the computer screen as the pc restarts - look at the lower left side of the screen during the boot up process to see what keys you need to press to enter startup mode, or get into the bios system of the computer. when you boot up a pc, it will display the keys you need to press on the screen for a brief few seconds before the "windows" screen appears and it completes the start up. If the pc is running windows xp, the command keys to press during start up might be F2 - F8 or "press the delete key". The commands can differ depending on which version of windows you are using - and they can also vary by brand of pc too.

You need to put the pc into "safe mode" or get into the Bios system or restore area to install windows if the computer does not already have an operating system installed on it.

To put the pc into safe mode or get into the Bios System, you need to press the right keys during the start up - and do this before a picture appears on the screen or the windows display comes up.

Put the disk in the drive and reboot the pc. As soon as it starts to reboot, keep pressing the F8 key. If the pc does not go into Bios or say "loading safe mode" then immediately restart the pc and try again. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 attempts to make this happen. If the F8 command does not work after 4 tries, then try the F2 key. After four tries if that does not work - try pressing the delete key.

If you can get the pc into the bios system - use the arrow keys on the keyboard to scroll through the options and find the prompt that says "boot order". change the boot order to boot from the Cd or Dvd drive instead of the hard drive. Save after changing this setting and reboot the pc with the disk in the drive and it should boot from that disk to install the operating system. Try rebooting 2 or 3 times after changing the boot order to the disk drive to get it to boot from the cd. Then just follow the prompts to install the operating system and your done!

I need to reset my laptop. It's locked and i've forgotten the password, and it won't let me get in.


If you are talking about the user password..you have no choice but reinstalling the operation system ...Use the recovery partition if you have one ..or recovery disk ..Or if non of these are a choice ..try with a boot able disk of the operation system ..
the procedure is pretty simple ..with the partition ..if it is present ..just restart he computer and press the F key for boot menu on start ..(its written on the start menu ,,usually is f12 or f11 for hp ) in the boot menu ..choose the recovery partition ..and choose complete reinstall of operation system ..It will bring it to teh factory settings ..
with the disk is a little different ..Insert the disk ..press same boot menu button ..and choose to boot from the disk ..it will ask you to press any key to confirm booting from disk ..and start the procedure..
if you use a operation system boot-able disk ..you proceed like with the recovery disk ..Insert it ..restart ...use the f12 key ..and choose teh cd /dvd as boot device ..and confirm by pressing any key ..and follow instructions ...I suggest to format the C drive before loading the files..(you will have the choice ) ..this way you get rid of any viruses for sure..
You will also need the drivers for it if you use a OS boot-able disk ...so ..download and store them before starting ..
Please ask if you have any questions ..

Hopefully, you have the set of CD/DVD "Dell System Restore" disks.

This might be a good time to purchase a newer, larger, faster, disk-drive, install it,
and load Windows onto it, and keep your current disk-drive as a "fall-back".

Restart your computer, and press F8, and tell the computer to boot from the first of those "System Restore" disks, rather than booting from your 'C:' drive.

T61 running XP won't boots, but complains about rrservice.exe. explorer hangs, and can only use task manager. how do you boot into safe mode?


Most of these systems boot iinto safe mode by tapping the F8 key right after you hit the power button to turn the laptop on and keep tapping until either you start hearing the laptop beep inprotest or you see the multi-choice menu pop up. When you so, choose "safe mode with networking". Your XP windows installation may need to be repaired. If you have the installation disc for XP, you can follow the guide below to fix the boot file.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

Brand new v5535 notebook won't set up keeps coming up with error


Try pressing the F8 key while booting, at the boot option page select the last known good configuration and boot from there. If this does not work, press the F8 key while booting and choose boot in safe mode, then go to start/programs/accessorys/system tools/system restore. choose a date that the computer was acting normal and restore to this date. If this does not work do a reinstall with the system restore disk and drive/application restore disk. BPCS
