Question about Compaq Armada 1700 Notebook

Laptop only runs in safe mode

Hi
I have a DELL Inspiron 2500 that I've had now for about 6 years - for some reason everytime I switch it on it will only run in safe mode. It tells me my local profile has been corrupted or deleted. I've tried setting up a new profile but this still hasn't solved the problem. Do you have any ideas how I can fix this problem? I tried to reinstal Windows XP but the problem is still there.

Dell inspiron e1505


Hi, it appears the video card has failed. Dell uses a NVIDIA card which has a high failure rate. I do not believe it is the cable, screen or driver. I say this for several reasons. If it was the cable or screen there would be a problem with the boot screen showing. Also I have worked on Dells with this problem.
Dell lost a class action lawsuit years back over this issue. The two options are to have the video card reflowed or replace the motherboard.

When I turn my mini on, I get to the Windows welcome screen and it stops there. Is there anything I can do?


Try booting the laptop up in safe mode. Upon booting up press the F8 key until it opens up an option for safe mode. If you then do get the laptop to load up to windows go into the My Computer and right click on the hard drice icon and go down to properties. You will then click on the Tools tab and then run the Check Disk option. It will ask you to reboot the laptop so it can run the check disk. Hopefully this will fix the issue. If for some reason it doesnt go back into safe mode and scan your laptop for any possible infections with your anti virus.

Best of luck...
Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Season..

Hi

Thank you for your query

What you are explaining is a classic windows loop

Unfortunatley the only way around it is to reformat the PC

Please do the following

1) Simply put your recovery CD provided with your laptop into your DVD/CD rom drive and then allow the laptop to restart

Then simply follow the instructions on screen

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

I have a dell 2500 inspiron that boots as far as the screen


You will need to check if there's a problem with the hardware, you will have to use the built in diagnostic for your laptop or if you have the drivers disc you can run the diagnostic there. Try to go to safe mode, if you can check the recent hardware or software changes you've made,you can try to reseat the hdd, try one memory at a time, though if you have memory errors, usually you will hear a beeping sound.

Laptop works fine in safe mode but freezes in normal mode


Okay, easiest first. In Safe Mode, your sound won't work. Safe Mode means only enough drivers to make your PC more than a doorstop get loaded, so that's okay.

Second, if it boots to Safe Mode without difficulty, try running System Restore in System Tools. Go back to some date before when your issue started. That should get you going. Don't worry, your data files will not be affected in System Restore. I hope this helps.
