Windows defender quit working on my laptop. DVD player does not work, so I can't reinstall from the back up disk. Anyway to fix this or do I need to get a new dvd drive to reinstall windows vista


Was the DVD damaged in so way? Does it show in Computer? Does it need driver? Which Gateway do you have? Windows Defender can be downloaded or fixed online.Do you have a Anti Virus that has turned off Windows Defender? Try MS Fix It: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931849 OR http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931099

I need a new hard drive do I need to reinstall windows agin


Yes the new hard drive will be completely blank. Your dell should have came with recovery disks (a windows disk, driver disk, ect) or a recovery patition that you would have to burn the disks from to make a set of disks. These disk will reinstall the software on your Dell computer and make it fully functional. If you do not have any recovery disks, you can contact Dell for a set. Be aware they sometimes will charge a fee to provide you with these disks.

Hope this helps

Windows xp shuting down freeze after windows reinstalling


Sounds like your install did not go very well.

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.If the Check Disk Utility does not fix the problem, then reinstall the operating system again.

I can not reboot my Dell Studio XPS 1645 running Windows 7, because everytime I try reboot my computer the Windows Dianostics Utility keeps on starting up. I tried to use my Windows 7 installation...


Sounds like you've tried everything except a complete reinstall. If there is information you need off that computer the hard drive will need to be taken out and plugged into another PC as a second hard drive then all can be copied. Then try a complete reinstall and good luck with that. If any problems doing a reinstall i would look at the ram. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Sony vaio VGN FS 742W notebook Startup problem.When swithed ON,Vaio,Window XP screen appears and then window 'isass' appears & notebook swithes OFF automatically.Pl.advise solution for the above....


If Windows appears, and start booting, then the problem concerns the operative system and not the hardware.

That is good news, because all you need to do is using the original computer recovery disk, or finding a Windows setup disk to reinstall Windows.

To reinstall Windows, start the computer with the Recovery Disk or Windows Disk inside and chose Boot from CD when asked, then follow instructions.

Regards.

How do I re-format Acer 4200 TravelMate hard drive?


Windows Reinstallation Disk option:

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.


Boot disk option:

For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.

You will need a floppy disk or CD
