I have a Dell inspiron 3800; recently I when I opened my laptop I see a message that says:
Windows no se ha podido iniciar. El siguiente archivo falta o estŠ daŮado WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM
It ask me to introduce the CD-Rom original; but I buy this laptop 5 years ago with all the papers but without this CD; what can I do in this situation? Also I'm not sure what version was instaled on the laptop.
I know a few people are experiencing this, not sure if it's the same with the E series, but the entire M4400 will fully lock up and die, requiring a hardboot. As in, a super-freeze: lights, keyboard, mouse, applications, display, everything. No chance to remove the freeze besides doing a hardboot. I've left it on for hours after the freeze, and still no luck.
This is a ridiculous problem. Imagine typing pages of documents, presentations, creating image files, working on CAD files and then it freezes completely. No ctrl+alt+del to save you here, no "quick-save".
Why is this happening? I've had 3-4 lockups every 10 minutes at a time. Using Dell memory, and default Dell hardware.
Weird situation: It has -never- locked up while watching episodes of fresh prince of bel-air on freshprincetv.com, and has -never- locked up while playing half-life 2 for four hours straight...this is worse than a defective GPU. More like a defective motherboard here...
I am having a problem on my Inspiron 17R SE. I accidentally wiped out the mSATA partition with Disk Management.¬†After trying to recover the partition(failed), I am thinking maybe I could re-format the mSATA SSD and reinstall Windows on it.¬†I have not shut down the laptop and I have backed up all my files. What can I do next?
My Dell Vostro 3450 (windows 7) had been running slowly for a while and after a virus scan didn't work, I decided to reinstall my operating system. I used the OS reinstall disk that came with the computer and that seemed to work pretty well. However, when it came time to install the drivers, I hit a roadblock. I put in the drivers disk and tried to go through the list of what drivers to install first (DSS, then chipset, etc...) but each time I installed something, it didn't seem to do anything-- I would go through the whole process for each one, but the little check mark wouldn't appear next to it in the "My System" list.... See below:
My computer can't connect to the internet either by ethernet or wifi, and can only input info through the cd drive.
Came to a point when I should completely restore the OS on my Acer Aspire 4752. Neither through Alt+F10 nor through eRecovery am I able to get around a Notice with the following "please complete operating system setup process before doing system recovery". There is only one option of this notice, that is to ok it and then the current Windows 7 Home Premium OS starts and I am not able to get out of this viscous circle. The OS works and is completely set up, so I do not understand what am I prompted to do. I see a number of postings out there, but no solution. Local Acer does not seem to know anything about the problem nor it's existence.
After rebooting my system I now come to a screen to enter system password. Only thing is.. I never set this and there is no way around it.I have tried the take battery out reset CMOS trick that used to work in desktops to no avail. ¬† This is the message I get after too many password attempts. ¬† system disable key 92931076
On my Pavilion dv6, a file (mobogenie/nengenie.dll) belonging to the Windows 7 system has been blocked by the anti virus/malware programn due to malware infection of this file. That is as it should be. However, pc peformance¬†has been decreased (resources run out after 1 hrs use, lagging) as a result. ¬†What do I do? Do I have to recover Windows 7 or have clean up of my hard disc, and how?
i have a inspiron e1705. i dont not have many big programs. some of them include Age of Empires III and an expansion pack, itunes, garmin software for my gps, java, office (excel, powerpoint and word), firefox and ie,
wd anywhere backup, avast! anti-virus, mp3 rocket, apple qucktime, spy-bot, etc.. i am pretty sure that these are all up-to-date. i have sp 2 installed... (is there a third one?).
i also have many pictures and videos (17.3 gb for pictures, 47.4 gb for music, and 8.6gb for videos). i do not have too many documents.
i have also just recently formatted my computer. any ideas as to why it is so full, and how i can create more room? do i just have to delete some things?
i have recently purchased an lg 42 inch lh3000 full hd 1080p tv to connect to my xps m1530.
i have also just downloaded the newest driver for my 8600gt. i have linked the two with a vga cable and my problem is that i cant get it to output 1920x1080 resolution even though other people seem to be saying it is possible.
in the nvidia control panel the highest resolution i can get the laptop screen to show is 1440x900 (the native screen resolution) and with the tv plugged in the highest it will take is this same resolution.
Well I need to format my XPS 16.. Any idea where I get the X-Fi MB suite to redownload? I called tech support and they kept insisting it's included with the IDT drivers and had no real clue what it was. Then they said to download it on the driver page... Well you can't as it's not a driver. They have the X-Fi mb listed, but it's only for the patch.
Whenever I try playing a Movie on my Studio's Blu-Ray drive & output it to my 26" LCD TV thru the HDMI, the picture on the screen is letterboxed on all 4 sides. It shows up as not much bigger than my laptop screen in size.
I have a studio xps 16 and whenever I plug it via HDMI to my tv (which has a 1080p resolution) there are black bars all around the image, meaning the image is smaller than the tv. I've set the resolution of the tv (from Catalyst Control Center) to 1920x1080 and it still won't do full screen...
I currently have a 1645 on order and assuming I ever get it, I want to run Linux as the primary OS.
I would like to run vmware workstation with windows as a client. The reason behind this is that I primarily use the computer for work and need linux, but I need windows for a few things.
I understand that these days Dell simply ships a re-install disk if that much. I need a full version of windows to setup vmware. Does anyone know if the dell key can be used with a full version disk to do an install .....
Originally they called yesterday and offered me a replacement for an M17X but they would only give me 85% of the original ourchase price of the XPS.
I configured the M17X on the DELL website and also called the Sales department to clarify I could have Bu Ray reader and Dual ATI's added because these options are not on the web configurator. I was told I could add these options.
This morning a tech support representative called and we went through the configuration. He could not get the price to match what I had been quoted from the Sales department.
I have troubles with svchost eating 50% (or a full core) of CPU. I can see that two services depending on this svchost instances are plugandplay and DCOM. With another tool (Process explorer) I could find that back thoses services were sometimes bluetoothstack, windows synchro, or just nothing.
Troubles happened after I upgraded two drivers from Dell website: Webcam and GeForce. I have now the latest instances from Dell.
Grafic driver seems quite old to me (11/2008). Any advice against using the nVidia driver (from nvidia website)?
