Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My Dell Inspiration Laptop passes all the system diagnostic tests but Vista does not load - just have a cursor on a blank screen. Is there any way to reload/revive Vista without losing data files on the hard drive. Dell do not seem to provide this option to reload.

Answers :

If you have the original Vista DVD that came with your computer, try running startup repair on your computer using the instructions here: \015\012
\015\012If startup repair doesn't work, make sure you have not modified system files such as authui.dll. I happened to have the same problem once on my computer :)\015\012
\015\012Try running this command in command prompt using the Vista DVD... \015\012sfc /scannow
When u see the cursor alone and nothing else except the black screen, Press CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE keys together.
This will open ur Windows Task Manager.
Now select file, then New Task & type explorer.exe and hit enter. U'll definately see ur lovely windows screen again..
