Dell inspiron one touch screen stuck in diagnostic mode


HI,
You were correct in pressing ctrl+f11 but perhaps you did not press at the correct time. If in following these first two steps you do not get the recovery console, it may not have been installed on your computer.

1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, clickRestore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlightRestore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
Thanks.

Dell inspiron black screen error code 2000-0146


Error 0146 indicates a failed/failing hard drive or bad drive sector.
Basically, this means your hard drive will need to be replaced.

Hi, first of all have you tried to run the diagnostics just to ensure the hardware functionality of your computer? if not, here's how: As the computer boots, press when the Dell Splash Screen appears. When the Boot menu appears, highlight the Boot to Utility Partitionoption, or the Diagnostics option and then press to start the 32-bit Dell Diagnostics. Press the key to highlight Test System Press to continue to 32-bit Diagnostics. Note: Express Test is the only test that will not require user involvement.
If there's no error found, that means, that your hardware most esp the hard drive (HDD) that came with your system is perfectly working fine and this isolated your issue that it's the operating system problem. It's good to know that you attempted to rebuild the OS just make sure it's the recovery cd that came with the computer. try to boot from the OS cd once again and reload / reinstall Vista. Here's the link for your reference (see step 4): http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?&docid=DSN_339949&isLegacy=true#Issue4

Start the PC and run diagnostics (Fn + Power) then run the hard drive diagnostics. If this fails then chances are the Hard Drive has errors which probably means you would be lucky to get your file back Im afraid.

Blank screen, error code;0f00c.


The error you appear to be getting during diagnostics should not be related to the computer not starting. The error you are referencing has to do with a blank CD not being in the CD/DVD drive during that part of the test.
I ran the diagnostics again with a blank cd in the drive and I recieved error code 1000-0146.

Help! My Dell Inspirion 1525 laptop crashed, black screen, nothing..I ran the diagnostic test for the os and there were several errors. I have the reinstallation discs but do not know to do that.


0F00 errors are hard disk drive errors. You will need to replace the hard drive. If under warranty, call Dell Tech support. If not, then you can buy a new drive from places like Newegg.com

Dell inspiron 6400 errors 0244 and 1A44


Sounds like a bad drive but it may still have the data on it (hand it over to a professional).
Next time, don't forget to do your backups so you don't have to worry.

Error loading operating system in dell


Hi,
You may be right , the harddrive on the system may have gone bad.
You can run a diagnostics on the hardrive,shut down the computer, and then Press the Fn+ power button at the same time , it would initate the diagnostics.

Do post the results back

It Keeps restarting at the loading screens


The error refers to a bad Hard Drive. You need to call up Dell to have the Hard Drive replaced. Make sure to start contacting a Local Pc Shop to help you back up files from your Hard drive since Dell doesn't cater to backing up of data on any Hard Drive.
