You will have to go into the program files and manually delete the operating system (os) not needed, make sure you have the right one. However, you will most likely still have the "choose your os" screen come up. The comand prompt that tells the machine to do this stays behind most of the time. If it does, then you will need to back up your files, reformat the hard drive, and install a new os.

My laptop DELL Inspiron 6000 on which I am running Windows XP. Its hanging very frequintly


Hello.

Typically, the problem is with the operating system or memory.

First, boot your system and press F8 repeatedly. Access Safe Mode and login. Choose System Restore and select a date before your system started to freeze. Note that your system updates will go back to that date.

If still a problem, disconnect all cables. Remove the battery. Remove the memory cover. Remove and reinsert the memory modules (they are removed and reinserted on a slant). If multiple modules, test one at a time.

Hope this helps.

Can XP & Windows 2007 can be loaded in laptop 14AR of DELL ? plz conirm.


Hi,
The Inspiron 14 that you have isnot compatible with windows xp, as it needs certain drivers for the hardware that is installed on the computer that are not supported by XP. However you can install windows vista as an operating system and install Office 200. However if you are using the Linux operating system the office 2007 would not be compatible with the same.

Thanks

Hi,

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC supports only Microsoft Windows XP Operating System. You can download Drivers and application from the link:

You may also try installing Windows 7 Operating System. Please refer below article before installing the Operating System.

Please check if the Hardware of the Computer is compatible for installing Windows 7 Operating System.

The Drivers for Windows 7 Operating System is not available for download at the Drivers page of the Computer. However, Windows 7 has a special feature. Most of the generic drivers will be automatically installed during the installation of the Operating System.

Thanks and Regards,

My sound went of and it said no audio output device is installed


It seem like the drivers those you have are may not be updated or may be corrupted.
Download the latest drivers from the below website.
Then uninstall your old drivers from your laptop and reboot.
Then install the new audio drivers according to the Operating System that you are using (XP/ VISTA).
Again reboot your computer and it should work perfectly fine.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't connet wireless network after reinstall


check DEVICE MANAGER if the wireless card have the right driver installed. if you found that the wireless card have yellow exclamation point on the right it means, you installed a wrong driver.

check also in BIOS if the wireless card is enable and the switch is turn on.

press Fn+F2 to enable wireless radio/anthena (funtion key with wireless icon in blue color)

some dell laptop have hard switch located right side check this and turn the switch on.

if you want to see the icon n task bar, go to control panel....network connection...right click on wireless adapter...select properties...check Show on taskbar

Getting a copy of the operating System cd for Dell Inspiron 6000


Dell not being provided with system operating disk aka Windows nor drivers disk needed for their systems. This always poses a problem when these people are advised to do a repair install or other system repair, only to discover that they have no disks. The normal solution recommended is to contact Dell support and ask for the disks. Dell has a support site where you can order disks for your system as well as other important links to updated drivers. On the site Dell states:
Dell Customers can now request a set of backup discs containing the factory-installed operating system as well as the device drivers and utilities specific to your system.
Requests are limited to one (1) set of backup discs per system purchased.
The backup discs requested must match the operating system that was factory installed on the original order.
Please note that Dell will provide you the most up to date Resource disc available, containing the latest drivers and diagnostic tools currently being shipped on new systems. Due to the frequent updates, this Resource disc may not have all the drivers needed for your specific system, especially if it is over one (1) year old.
Complete details here.

Good Luck / Please dont for get to Vote.Thank you.
