Sorry guys, details will be a bit sketchy on this one, since this isn’t my computer, and my friend knows very little technical stuff about the one I’m trying to fix for them. Basically what I’m working with is that it is a Dell Inspiron 3600 desktop (Im assuming about 512 MB of memory, 1 G if we are lucky). It was shut down incorrectly and now is not able to get past the blue screen, even on safe mode and last known good config, all options fail and hit the blue screen. The only errors I can bring up are multiple 0X00000000, which, as far as I’ve ever worked with means the BIOS and CMOS is completely screwed… Now the interesting part, no new hardware or software, just shut down badly. I ran the Dell diagnostic disk and got the following, which I can’t apply a resolution for:
Any ideas for how to bring windows back up, (they have files they didn’t back up anywhere else that they need, so wiping the hard drive isn’t an option). Also no XP disk is available.
What I did to fix the issue is create a new profile and move my programs and files to the new profile. Everything seems to work but the problem is my computer is now very slow epesially when I am online. In IE7 when I click a link, it pauses for about 6-8 seconds before it even starts thinking. I tried re-installing IE7 but no improvement. I am not sure what to try next but I am considering doing a full backup of files and reinstalling windows completely. Will this even help?? Am I just screwed?? Is there an easier fix that I am overlooking?? I am running a Dell inspiron 1505 laptop with Windows XP an a Centrino Duo processor. 1 gig ram. Any insites would be appreciated. I looked into a registry cleaner but I would hate to spend the and find out that it did nothing to help me.
My laptop would connect to wireless internet before at home. But now it can no longer do so and also when I select repair connection, I just wait forever for the process to finish. This problem is isolated to my administrator account since I can connect using my guest account. I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 Centrino. Cannot connect using both windows and Intel Proset wireless software. Help please.
I have a dell inspiron 1520 laptop its about 2 yrs old now when it boots up i get an error sayin windows failed to start due to a recent hardware or software problem and i get the option of lauch startup repair or start windows normally when I start it normally the screen blinks blue then it goes black and reboots
