Question about PC Laptops

Windows can?t load locally stored profile,

When my Gateway notebook boots up, a box pops up, which says, "Windows can’t load locally stored profile, possible causes insufficient security rights

Windows can’t find local profile and is loading a temporary profile.

With this temporary profile, we can't access any of our documents.


Can anyone help, please?

Go into safe mode at start up, log in as administrator, and do a system restore. Pressing F8 at start up will take you to safe mode.

How do i start fresh


First thing you have to do is format the hard drive on your notebook
Then get a cd of Windows to install on the freshly formatted hard drive
Just pop the cd in the drive and then wait for it to load then press any key to boot from the drive to start the installation of Windows OS.

On start up the system boots and windows loads but wont finish. The message ''Insufficient system resources exist to complete API.'' it comes in a box headed Isass.exe- System Error Any help would be...


When windows tries to fire up, does it ask you whether to boot up in safe mode or normal (would be a black and white MS DOS screen with no mouse functions)? If not, you need to reboot your computer and go into boot options. There should be a little comment line in one corner of the screen before windows loads that says something like F2 Setup F12 Boot Menu. Do you get that once it has begun trying to execute windows?

My laptop suddenly went bonkers. it was ok then when i turned it on it took ages for the screen to change from saying"microsoft windows xp" like 5 or ten mins...then screen looked black for a while after...


Sounds like your best bet is a fresh install of the operating system. Since it is an Inspiron, you may have the option of using PC Restore to re-image the system (Provided previous owner didn't hose the restore)
Info is here
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3705089-restore_dell_system_original
other things you can do are run diagnostics (Hold Fn Key and Press Power Button) and make sure you don't get a hardware failure in the diags (Passing diags is no guarantee of no faults, just none found)
If all else fails, boot to XP CD and do a clean install of Windows, then load the drivers.
Link to drivers:

Driver install order:

The I6400 is a good system, (I'm writing this on on) but the description you give tells me the OS is hosed and likely a reinstall is your best and fastest resolution.

HP dv1000 start up and Workgroups visibility problems


I have heard of IE7 causing some problems with resource hogging - if you don't absolutely need it, the best thing to try is to uninstall IE7 and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't, leave another comment on this ticket and we can try something else.

Three errors recently occuring, causing som problems


Try to remove that on the boot.ini on your system.
You can do that by following this.

1.Click Start>Run>type "msconfig" (without the "") then press enter, On the new window that will comes up that is the msconfig window.
2. uncheck the EABServ.exe on the startup or on the boot.ini. then click apply and restart. I'm not sure if the EABServ.exe is a virus or a malicious file that is not recognize by your antivirus but I know its not a microsoft application.

Gateway profile 4


You probably don't have the software installed. Go to the dvd mfgr's website and download the driver. Often, windows will not install the correct one. Does the unit have power?...does it light up when you boot? If not, the problem is not the driver.

User environment error message and HDD fail of Test #2-07


i would suggest that you restore your pc back to a previous date and see if the 30 second freeze ups go away. This has happened on a few of pc's i have had, but the reason i put it down to was a corrupt windows update or one of window malicious viral scans. Go to start>programmes>accesories>system tools and select system restore. When opened up choose a date previous to when this started happening or choose a date before the last updates or system check, only dark lettered dates can be restored the greyed out dates cannot.
