Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

2 Answers

Dvd or cd drive

I purchased a dell inspiron 6400 1.5 year ago and never had used the recording drive. Now I want to make a full back up and tryed to work the hd and a sonic software appeared with a bunch of commercial adds . I understand the drive does not record, as the software was a limited demo.
What can I do? : A) how can I update my software? or B) should I set up another software like NERO.
I called up to dell (poor help) and some informed that thru windows xp is also possible to burn a cd , but I could not find according to very confusing and non coincident directions from microsoft.
Pls advise . thank you beforehand.
cordially, Doug Williams- Bogota Colombia

Don't use the built in burning capabilities that Windows has. The software doesn't work very well and most of the time you won't get a good burn. I use Nero and have no problems, so, I would suggest using Nero for burning. I believe you can download Nero from filehippo.com

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.
