Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

I got this dell lap top from a friend and they moved away and i have no contact to reach em any way they put k9 protection on it and it wont let me do any thing can u help??

Answers :

I googled k9 and it said it was parental control software , am i right?\015\012now if it was installed you can run a system restore ( start, run and type system restore) click on what looks like a clock and you will be asked to restore your computer to an earlier time and when the calendar is open all restore points are highlighted darker on the dates\015\012as you go back the calendar look for when k9 was installed and go back to a restore point before that \015\012for example if k9 was installed on 1/1/09@ 2pm then restore your computer to [email protected] the program will no longer be there to work , 1 thing i warn you about is that any other programs put in after the k9 installation will also be gone \015\012
\015\012hope this helps ...Pat
It depends on "when" the 'K9' protection is activated.
\015\012If it shows-up _immediately_ when you turn the computer on, you're in the pit of alligators.
\015\012If it shows up "later", i.e., when first accessing the disk-drive, then you need to buy a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.
\015\012I assume that they left the Dell "system restore" CD-ROM set with you, or that you will contact Dell to get a "replacement-set" of CD-ROMs.
\015\012(This latter support usually takes 2 or 3 business days.)

We have tried to use our dvd burner in our computer and we can't. We have followed the instructions and the help tab but it still wont drag over to be burned. It doesn't matter what we put in to be burned it wont let us. We have tried to save it in our library and do it that way as well but it wont let us do that either.

Sometimes, when you get a package deal with all the software it may be incomplete. They sold you a DVD burner but you would still need the proper software. I would check with the store to make sure that they didn't skimp out on all the necessary thin ... PC Desktops
