The Recovery CD was meant to be used with an external CD drive. They just assume you'll buy one. If it's in safe mode,you should'nt have a blue screen in safe mode. In safe mode, you should be able to use the computer in pretty much the normal way.If so, then what you need to do is a "System Restore". Click the "Start" button,then "Control Panel", then "System". Near the top -left corner of the "system" box, you will see a tab labeled "System Restore". Clickit, and follow the instructions.

Dell inspiron 910 no cdrom has blue screen


This is not good, this indicated hard drive failure, or windows files has been corrupted so you can not access the partition. If you have the owners manual see if they offer a way to do a full recovery, if that is not available, have the hardware assessed for possible replacement.

My little sisters dell inspiron mini just got the Unmountable boot volume message. I've looked online but most of the options require a cd which is of course not helpful when the mini doesn't have...


The best option is, look around for external cd-rom with usb connection, and reformat the laptop.You need to go into the bios and change the boot order to make your usb cd-rom to first in the boot list. Once the usb cd-rom is plugged into used port, with operation system cd in it, on your laptop..press F2..go into the bios, to the boot order make your usb cd-rom on top boot list,,then save changes to exit the bios. Once again the system reboots..with message PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD ROM.. so just simple steps to follow..its not going to be expensive..good luck

Dell Inspiron mini 10. The system will not boot up, after the Dell logo screen and blue bar goes away, the screen is blank and the curser is flashing in the upper left corner of the screen. F11 isn't...


That cursor indicated that the BIOS can't find an Windows installed on the hdd. Since even the recovery partition appears to be inaccessible the only thing left is to reinstall it using the recovery cd that should have come with it when you bought it If you don't have it you can order it from Dell.

My inspiron 1018 won't boot. i need to reinstall or repair my software. it does not have a cd drive. please advice action.


The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 series of netbooks come with recovery software that can restore your netbook's original factory settings. Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbooks with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 can be recovered to the factory settings using a recovery partition on the hard drive.
Windows Vista or 7
Turn on or restart your Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook. Press the "F8" key repeatedly when the "Dell" logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
Highlight "Repair Your Computer," and then press "Enter."
Highlight the language layout you want to use for your keyboard and click "Next." Enter your username and password if prompted. Click "OK."
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and then click "Next." The recovery software on some Dell Mini systems may require you to click "Dell Factory Tools" followed by "Dell Factory Image Restore" and "Next."
Click "Next" if you understand the netbook will be restored to its original factory settings. The recovery process will begin.
Click "Finish" when a message appears saying the recovery is complete. The netbook will restart and boot up to the Windows Vista or Windows 7 set-up screen, where you can begin personalizing your netbook.

Windows XP Recovery
Turn on the computer. Press the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys at the same time while the computer is booting up to access the recovery software.
Click "Restore."
Click "Confirm" to begin the recovery process, which shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes.
Click "Finish" to restart the computer and finalize the installation. Click "Yes" to restart the netbook again. The computer will boot up to the Windows XP setup screen


Here is a link which will take you to the site which will allow you to download a ZIP file with a WEB PAGE type service manual for your 1018, after a 45 second wait. (They want you to sign up for premium service but NOT NEEDED) Click again after wait?
After download, open the ZIP file and copy all contents to a new folder. Double click the Contents.html file to open in a web browser, then use the built in shortcuts to navigate the manual.

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.

Have a dell inspiron mini has the blue screen and unable to go into safe mode


The fatal blue screen occurs due to0 the OS issues.. So reinstall the OS... The mini computers dont have CD drive so use the following option

Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows 7 on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..

If the restore option is not available then call up the tech support of dell(18006249896) they will replace the HDD to fix the issue

Show a blue screen


You need to go into the Setup Utility or BIOS when the computer boots. You need to enable the computer to boot from the CD drive, and set up boot priority with CD Drive first, then Hard Drive HDD.

Then it will boot the disc.
