Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop ?

When I turn computer on the windows boot manager screen comes up. It says windows is having problems communicating with a device on the computer. It says this error could be caused by a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use or faulty hardware such as hard drive or CD ROM that is failing. Gives me the options to hit enter and continue or ESC=Exit. Either one sort of restarts and it does the same thing again. I can press F2 or F12 at one point in the pro


Answers :

Sometimes when you use ram sticks on some older computers they do not handle taking teh ram stick out of the USB port without first closing out teh device OR if you have the RAM stick in while you are booting the machine... it will select the ram stick as the boot device and appear there is no oprerating system present.

\015\012In you case when you go to the boot menu.. be sure the boot menu is set to select the hard drive as the primary boot device. If it is not then you can make the change at teh bott up screen.
