My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files

Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

Inspiron 1000 dell laptop with windows xp ie7? is there any way to delete some programs, make more room, and load ??????applications?? for playing facebook / zynga games and to play please...

yes, you can always open the programs and features section in Control Panel to uninstall utilities or programs you do not actually use or need. you can also delete old files like video, audio, pictures and documents no longer need to free up some space. after doing so, it would help to run disk defragmenter to organize the available space on the drive. Depending on the size of yuor hard drive, you can also replace it with a larger one or use an external drive to save files and use hard drive for program files and the operating system.

My hard drive has broken. I want to buy a used, loaded hard drive for my Dell Inspiron 1525. Which other Dell hard drives would be compatable?

what do you mean loaded? preinstalled wih everything? for that you would probably have to go to dell and they probably charge a lot. you can just get another "2.5 sata hard drive and do it yourself if you have a copy of windows. you can even borrow a copy as long as it is the same version that is on the sticker on the bottom of your computer. you just use your product key. then you can go to and get the drivers you need.

Hello, I get the folliwing message by starting my laptop dell inspiron 5100: The operating system not found. Please could you provide any solution to solve the problem. Thanks. Chahin

this happens when there is damage to the windows installation, or the hard drive itself. test your hard drive using an external hard drive casing, if the hard drive works then you can just copy your files to another computer, then reformat the hard drive put it back in your laptop and reload windows

I have an Inspiron 5100 that is running very slow. I want to format the hard drive (40 GB)and reinstall XP Home. I hit the F12 key while booting and the computer tries to boot from the CD drive but it does...

This would be a good time to upgrade to Windows XP Professional. I think your disk from Dell is bad because you are going about it the right way.

One suggestion is to put your windows cd in the cdrom drive. Browse the cd for a file called setup, click on that and setup should run from there.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop Won't Boot Up

The laptop won’t POST after removing the memory? Sounds like the memory module (s) need to be reseated again. Removing memory will not reset the laptop. If you want to install a clean Windows XP load, you need to boot from the Windows CD and format the hard drive.
Fell free to contact me if you need futher assistance.

Thank You.
