When switched on it only displays lg logo.


No need to panic if your laptop is stuck at the loading screen because you can easily restore it to normal using the resources that came with your system. Booting issues usually result from missing or corrupt files, or incompatible software on your system. It is convenient to use tools that are part of your Windows operating system to fix loading issues. You can have your laptop back to normal with a little troubleshooting.

1.Place the Windows 7 installation disc into your CD-ROM drive. Restart your computer.
2.Press "Enter" when the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" message screen appears. Allow Windows to load the files.
3.Select your preferred settings from the Time and and currency format and Keyboard or input method boxes. Leave the Language box at English and click "Next" to continue.
4.Click "Repair your computer" toward the bottom of the screen at the next window. This will launch the System Recovery Options. Select the "Use recovery tools..." option, choose your operating system and then click "Next" at the next window.
5.Click "Startup Repair" at the System Recovery Options window. Allow the tool to scan your system for issues that are causing your laptop not to boot. Click "Next" to reboot your laptop. Windows should load like normal, but it may reboot several times on its own first.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!
