Question about Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook

1 Answer

Regarding the issue of icons flashing and disappearing

Thanks for trying to help. As you guessed system restore doesn't work, i'm not sure why but I have heard from a lot of people that the system restore feature hasn't worked by them either. I was hoping on an idea OTHER THAN reinstalling windows. That is ALWAYS a last resort. I can't afford to lose all my data. There must be another way. Thanks!

Actually, if you do a system repair, you won't lose any data. Go past the repair from recovery console to the next screen in the set up. It will prompt you R for repair or esc to install a fressh copy. Hit R, this will repair the registry and operating system files without deleting any data or installed programs.

If you are taking about the destop icons. Just run SYSTEM RESTORE that you computer works fine.

Go to START
Choose ACCESSORIES
Choose SYSTEM TOOLS

And then choose PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. USE OTHER RESTORE DATES IF NEEDED.

Sure it will be back ti normal.

Icons disappear when I try to use mouse or keyboard. Cannot access any programs or even start menu


Hi,

Try booting the computer to the safe mode, create one more User Account and then check if the issue persist in the new user. If not, then issue was with the previous user account. If yes, try performing a system restore from the safe mode and check if it helps.


Thanks!!!!

Try a system restore if it will allow you. If not you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Sounds like Spyware or Adware causing your issues. Try scanning it using http://superantispyware.com/ or AGV Free.
