The hard disk is dying - recover what you can while you still can then replace it and reinstall Windows.

I have a dell mini 1012 will not boot, after the dell logo screen and blue bar is complete I get a black screen with a white cruser flashing in the upper left corner. This mini has no cd drive.


Do you happen to have either an external hard drive or usb flash drive plugged in? If so remove it and reboot, your computer is trying to boot off of it.
If no, enter BIOS and see if the computer is detecting your hard drive at all.
If no replace your hard drive and reinstall the OS, if it is detected...

When I turn on my Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 N450, it keeps showing that it's running the start up repair. It won't let me cancel it, so I let it run. It said it was now repairing any problems and it...


Startup issues are normally caused by recently installed software that has somehow corrupted critical files, or fault of the hard disk. In the case of the former, you may use startup repair to roll back to a restore point from before the problem occurred. In the case of the latter, you may run "chkdsk c: /f" from the command prompt (available after entering recovery). This will attempt to find and repair corrupt sectors of the disk.

I have a Dell mini 1012 and appear an error 2000-0142.


This is a hard drive failure error. You can try starting in safe mode (Hit F8 BEFORE the Windows screen appears on startup) to save your files to a different location IF your computer will start at all. BUT your hard drive needs to be replaces ASAP.

Bought new hard drive for mini 1012 dell bios sees new hard drive but when i try to install windows xp , xp says no mass storage device detected.


In the bios change the drive options to anything but AHCI if possible. You will need a windows xp driver and USB floppy disk to install the AHCI or SSD driver. It's also referred to as an F6 Floppy. Dell should have the download you need.

I have Dell inspiron 1525 window vista recovery reports 5 error are detected in hard drive and memory errors detected on my laptop 1. hard drive doesnt respond to system commands-critical error 2.boot...


your HDD may be corrupted, re-installing windows vista is one option. Your best bet is if you have/ can obtain a copy of windows vista run setup and try the repair wizard in the windows vista setup, the wizard automatically finds errors and missing files and replaces them therefore solving any errors in your HDD. you can also try to use the recovery wizard from your recovery disc. best of luck
