Flashing usually refers to a programable chip like the BIOS chip. It is not related to the OS. Are you referring to a Windows utility to flash the BIOS? Or do you mean something else?

Hi my dell inspiron 1525 recovery drive is c drive and os drive is d drive , now i cant download anything ,messenger, antivirus or put pics on,are the drives the wrong way round,cos i just installed...


Seems like you have installed the OS on the wrong drive (OS has been installed on the 10 GB drive erroneously). By default, Windows would name the drive with OS as the C drive. Thus, the confusion.
What you need to do now, is to reinstall the OS once again, and this time ensure that the OS is installed on the bigger drive (It's named OS by default, should be around 160-200 GB depending on your drive size). Also, do not forget to Erase the disk before continuing with the installation. Please note that this method would destroy all data from your computer, so make sure you have a backup of all your important files and data.

Revert with the outcome.

Good Luck!

My computer has a virus I can't remove


Try and boot into windows safe mode by pressing the F8 key before windows loads and then try running the browser and check if it crashes. Perform the same process by scanning with an anti virus and see what happens. You might have two problems, either the RAM the actual memory is bust or something in the OS has gone really wrong and got the OS unstable. Try the safe mode test to confirm.

Won't Load OS from DVD


If your laptop will post, meaning you can get to the BIOS, then YES. Re-flash it with the original BIOS, or a newer but proper BIOS. Then all should be OK again.

Reformatted drive > windows update hang error


My guess is that you have used a faulty OS. Try to reinstall your operating system by using another disk that has an operating system on it. This has happened to me, and I found out the eithet the OS disk that i was using had nothing on it, or it was faulty and did not work. I bet that is what you are dealing with here.
