Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini, and everything was working fine until last Friday i tried turning it on and it as it loaded it went directly to a black screen with white letter and asked me how I wanted to start my computer. I've seen this problem before so I just chose 'Start Windows Normally" it started loading but right before it got to the user screen the screen turned blue and told me that I had the error: 'UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME' I just restarted my computer and chose repeated the routine but instead chose the 'Load Last Known Working Configuration' and the same thing happened and it kept happening through 'Safe Mode' 'Safe Mode Networking' and 'Safe Mode Communication' I Googled everything and every site told me to re-boot the Windows XP with the disc provided by Dell or download something to get rid of it. But the problem is my computer doesn't have a CD Rom device and I'm not looking to by an external USB one and the blue screen won't load windows so I can't download anything. Please help!

Looks like your master boot record is corrupted or you have a bad hard drive. Without cd drive there is one option but it is not guarantied it will work. You can acctually make USB flash drive bootable but you need another computer with cd drive and an XP Operating System CD. You can google how to make usb flash drive bootable for XP and it will give you step by step instructions. Or you can borow an external cd drive or take it to pc repair store. Good luck.

How do i boot my dell inspiron mini


The problem is most likely in the DC jack in the laptop, it works it self loose over time until there is no power or intermittent power. The only solution is to dismantle the laptop down to the motherboard level to replace the plug or resolder back in place.

Turn your computer off.

Turn it back on. While it is turning on, tape F8 a bunch of times. A new window will pop up listing a few different ways to boot into Windows. Choose -> Last Known Good Configuration.

See how that does ya.

Good luck.

Inspiron 1520-before finishes loading desktop screen goes black..


if it works fine in safe mode you should try a system restore . most of the time a problem that gos away in safe mode is driver related . IE software don't think you have a hard ware issue. you can call dell if you do not have the disk . 1-866-751-6079 call this number it's dell's Spanish tech support number but this is the fastest way to reach a real person at dell . just ask them to speak English and they will.

As it works ok in safe mode, I suggest you check that your graphics drivers are up to date.

You should be able to download the latest from the Dell website.

Try to reinstall XP again, when prompted to partiton, select to do so.
You will lose everything on the hard drive and will need to reinstall all of your programs.
Hope this helps.
