You can only change the device manager settings for you to uninstall any recent hardware or driver.

Right-click My computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager

Just one question. Did you install any hardware driver before it happened?

    If no driver or software installed before the blue screen happened, that's already a corrupted Operating System (corrupted Windows). If this is the case,



    - Run the recovery CD that came with your computer.

    -If this didn't work, 2nd option is reformat the hard drive and do a fresh install of Windows. So far, this the best thing that you can do to resolve your blue screen problem.

Password issue unable to logon to Windows 7


You should be able to get into the different boot options by pressing F8 as the computer starts up.
If so, select "Safe Mode" and Windows 7 will boot up into safe mode. There should be an "Administrator" account aside from the "Owner" account, and the Administrator should have no password...
From there, go to Start, Control Panel, click on User Accounts, and click it again in the next screen. Your account information should be on the screen now; from here click on "Manage User Accounts." A second window should pop up with the available user accounts on the computer. Click on the one you're trying to log in with, and at the bottom of the window, click "reset password".
Enter a password that you normally use (you can always remove it later). Click OK. Now you should be able to log in to that account with the password you just put in. Restart and try it out.
Let me know how it goes :)

I am unable to open internet and programs


Could be a virus. Can you start up in safe mode? If so try that (F8 on reboot and choose safe mode). Once up in safe mode run a full virus scan.

My laptop monitor is stuck in full screen mode after a game malfunctioned and the computer shut down. I did a system restore but it didn't change. Operating system - Vista.


Firstly, uninstall the game. then reboot the PC in safe mode. Right click on the desk top and select properties. Then select settings. From here give new settings to your monitor. If this does not wirk then Control Panel->System->HardWare->Deivce Manager. Select Display Adapters. Uninstall it and reinstall.

Start menu and desk top


Can you start it in Safe Mode? Press F8 while the computer is booting. click on Safe Mode with Networking when the menu comes up.
When you get into Safe Mode, run you anti-virus. And clean your Cookies, Temp files and Internet Temporary Files. And while in Safe Mode, run a defrag of the C: drive. Restart the computer and it should start up correctly.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Windows does not work


If you don't have any critical data on the computer, I would format and reinstall windows. That will help your computer run faster either way. Nothing runs better then a fresh copy of windows.
Good luck,

Touch Pad


In the touchpad settings (Control Panel, Mouse) see if tap to click is enabled, if so uncheck and see if there is any difference. Also try booting in the safe mode, and see if that changes anything (F8 during boot to access safe mode) If no difference, then you'll likely need a new palmrest to fix the touchpad. If the touchpad works normally in the safe mode, try a new touchpad driver from support.dell.com
