Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
When i start up i am getting the message "the following file is missing or corrupt:
As we are all aware Dell has stopped shipping cd's with their machines now. And to prevent loss of data i want to get into safe mode but the F8 key on this machine is not the answer.
I have a xp cd from another manufacturer would i be able to use that to copy the nessessary file and put it back on , and if so how do i go about doing so.
Thanks Jim Bolt
With this problem you will have to do either a repair or reload of the operating system, and it could still be that the hard drive is beginning to fail, you won't know this until you try the repair/reload. You will have to use either a Dell disc or a Windows operating system disc. If you use a disc designed for, say, a Gateway system it will load, but it will only give you a temporary or trial system usually anywhere from a week to thirty days, then it will either shut down or ask for an authorization code or product key, I've tried. If you have any trouble finding a disc, you can contact me at email@example.com, I sell valid copies of both the Dell disc for $25 or Windows XP Pro with service pack 2 for $40 at my shop.
