This problem is usually caused by corrupt files in Windows usually caused by a crash or sudden shut down (like a power-outage.) There is some slight possibility that your RAM is failing, so try http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/diagnosing-memory-problems-on-your-computer. If this is not a problem, you may (or may not) have some luck if you (i) disconnect everything except monitor, mouse and keyboard (ii) open Windows in Safe Mode and then (iii) see if you can access a restore point before the disaster. If this fails, run the command checkdisk /r from the command prompt (see below and http://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=6565 which is valid for Win Vista/7) Type cmd in the start menu and right click on cmd.exe. Then select "Run as administrator" If that fails, a)Insert the Windows 7 installation disc. Note: The computer must be configured to start from a CD or from a DVD. For information about how to configure the computer to start from a CD or from a DVD, see the information that came with the computer. b)Restart the computer and boot from the Windows 7 installation disc. c)Set your language preference, and then click on Next. d)Click on Repair your computer. e)In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click on the operating system that you want to repair, and then click on Next. f)In the System Recovery Options menu, click on Command Prompt. g)Type in chkdsk /r (note the space between k and /) and press enter. This might cause a message that checkdisk cannot run and ask you if you want to have checkdisk run when the computer next starts: type yes and then restart the computer. h)When the repair process is complete, type exit. NOTE: While performing chkdsk on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive when chkdsk tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be lost. If this fails, and you have no back-up, then you are in "reinstall Windows" territory. Buy a new HDD, remove the old HDD, install the new HDD, format and install Windows on the new HDD. Now connect up your old disk and, with luck, the new disk will be able to see the old one. However,

  1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, click the arrow next to the Shut Down button eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c_47.jpg, and then click Restart.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to start tapping F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.
  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option you want, and then press Enter. For more information about options, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).

It's unclear... what do you mean by: "two opening screens"? If at Login you have two users you can manage them at User Accounts in the start menu (or from Control Panel). If at boot you have more than one Operating System, than you can remove one of those. Please be more clear about your problem. What does it consist of? How to reproduce it? Where does it apply?...

To restore a previous version of Windows you will need the CD and product key. Inset the disk into the drive and follow the set of instructions. If the version of Windows you are using does not allow you to install a previous version the hard drive will need to be reformatted. Make sure to save all personal data before doing so.

Unfortunately, your LCD screen is going bad. Well actually it could be one of three things: the LCD itself is going bad, the cable is bad or loose, or the video processing portion of the motherboard is going bad. Has the laptop taken a fall lately? If you are handy with a small screwdriver and not afraid to open up the laptop, then you can try to make sure the cable is plugged in securely. To do this, first take out the battery and unplug the power of course. You will need to remove the bezel around the LCD screen. Remove any screws that are holding it on (they may be behind small rubber covers), and gently pry the bezel off of the sides of the LCD. Also, there should be a removable strip of plastic on the main part of the laptop up where the power button and the LED lights are. You can pop it up to remove it as well. You may need to remove the keyboard first to do this. The keyboard screws are on the underside of the laptop and should have a "K" next to them. The keyboard should pop up with gentle force after you have removed its screws. When you have access to where the LCD connects to the main part of the laptop, you will see a small metal--coated cable that runs into one of the hinges. Make sure it is plugged in securely to the LCD screen and also the motherboard. You can power up the system with the laptop like this and jiggle the cable to see if it makes a difference. If there is no difference in the screen when you have secured the cable in the plugs and jiggled it, then the LCD or video processor is bad. If it is the LCD, it is not too expensive to replace it, but if it is the video processor then unfortunately you would need a new motherboard.

Dell Latitude... • Answered on Apr 07, 2014

absolutely no noticeable noise (reading) during startup, no detection of a separate disk drive (my computer), then you've possibly left something unplugged or the CD drive has an electrical prob. with it. All disk drives always have a large flat datacable for readingwriting, data-transfer and a small separat cable for power which both need to be plugged in the proper direction safely with all the valuable pins which can't be damaged, even once... Unless you have good experience with CP hardware repair, I'd respectfully recommend carefully examining your changes you've made since the first removal and try to verify all the changes have been made correctly.

You should reconfigure the energy saving options in DISPLAY and lengthen the On time from a few minutes to the length of time you wish. This is not a hardware but a Software Issue, but I don\'t know what Operating System you are using for more specific information. Supply that or reconfigure your system to your satisfaction and rate, or get back to me so I can further assist and then rate.

Well you not going to like this but you have to take your laptop apart there is a small battery inside that store that info and once unplugged it will reset the password... I recommend finding instructions for the proper way to disassemble your laptop ..... altho sometimes this battery can be found on the bottom of your laptop under one of the small panels that can be removed but not usually ... most the time its under the keyboard or even deeper inside the system ....GOOD LUCK
