I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,
I am a property manager who manages some self-storage facilities. We recently had a few spaces go to auction and as a result the auction winners threw stuff they didn't want into the dumpster. I was emptying the trash from the office and noticed that someone had thrown a few laptops into the dumpster. As a tech nerd, I climbed into the dumpster and pulled the laptops from the garbage.
One of the laptops was a Dell laptop. I cleaned it up a bit and used one of my Dell laptop chargers to try and charge the battery overnight. Then, I hit the power button and hoped..... nada. Opened the back panel and immediately saw that it had no hard drive.... but the memory was still installed as well as the WIFI adapter. The screen was cracked but I had hope that it might still be usable once I could actually get the laptop to boot.
So, I pulled out one of my old SATA laptop hard drives, re-formatted it and installed it in the laptop.
Hit the power button and saw that I could not install Win10 from the USB port since the laptop had an admin password installed and of course, I had no idea what it was. So, I called Dell and gave them all the laptop info and my personal info and they gave me a code to enter which was supposed to disable or erase the unknown admin password and allow me to change the boot options to include the usb port.
The code does not work. The dell rep mentioned something about hitting the Shift and Control keys while I hit the enter key but that still doesn't... Read more

I have a Dell xps M1210. I know little to nothing about computer hardware. My laptop crashed sometime ago. It was reformatted and everything to the best of my knowledge was re-installed. I am running Windows XP Pro.
My laptop appears to get on the wireles network at my office. I sent my laptop home with one of my guys... and after some tinkiering he says he could get on at his place. I bring my laptop home and the same thing occurs, my laptop sees our network here at home, tries to connect but is "unable to connect". The wireless is intel(R)Proset...? Generally when somebody tries to access my home network I get an intruder alert. My network has shown no warnings about my laptop trying to connect to it. We've used Home Network Magic previously ( came as a free trial on my XPS when I purchased it). My wireless router is a d-link extreme.
My home network is accessed by my wife's Mac.
I hope there is something really elementary as far as a solution for my situation. When it comes to computer I am a total caveman.
Thanks... If I'm in the wrong area for this kind of question, apologies, hopefully I can get pointes in the right direction.

Vista, Intel Centino duo

I press the power button and it does nothing except turn the blue power button and green lights on. It does not start up at all. Its the same with the Media Direct button.

First, it had blue lines down the screen a couple weeks ago. That seemed to be solved by the F12 hardware assessment. When we got it to boot up again, we ran a full virus scan and found nothing. We did a really in-depth hardware scan and found no problems. Later it would freeze and then go to Blue then red then green then white screens at start up. Today it kept freezing on the welcome screen and once on a white screen. It started once in safe mode but that's all. Now it won't do anything.

I'd greatly appreciate any help/advice. Thank you! Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post to.

I have a Dell XPS M1210 running Win 7 Professional. Did a clean install on a brand new hard disk from a self-burned DVD (from the MS Student Discount program).

Some specs: C2D T7200 2.0G, 4GB DDR2, NVIDIA 7400, WD3200BEKT, A08 BIOS

Ever since the install (back in January), the laptop can only sleep/wake once. The laptop experienced no issues when running XP/Vista.

Boot -> Login -> Sleep -> Wake -> Sleep -> Hang -> BSOD (sometimes)

This problem is reproducible 100% of the time. I checked the system log between sleep attempts. Windows always logs the same error that reads:

"The platform firmware has corrupted memory across the previous system power transition. Please check for updated firmware for your system." The error cites the HAL as its source. The first and last corrupted page is always 63. Subsequent attempts to put the laptop to sleep cause the system to hang. Only the screen/wifi turn off - the rest of the computer is powered. The only way out is to press and hold the power button.

Microsoft does have a paper detailing the issue, and suggests updating the BIOS. However, the most recent version of the firmware for my system is already installed. I have tried updating stock Windows drivers with those from the manufacturer (ie Dell, Intel Chipset), but that did not help. Device manager shows no hardware conflicts/problems.

Are there any other XPS M1210 owners experiencing the same problem, or is this an isolated incident?

A:Dell XPS M1210 can't sleep more than once

Personally I don't recommend using sleep functions in Windows. While it may work wonders in Unix based systems, it's not quite as refined in DOS based systems. It frequently hangs, disrupts processes and causes BSODs. Just shut down your computer when not in use, if you have a decent system it should take no more than ~60 seconds to boot.

Hi all!

I have a Dell XPS M1210. It was running Windows XP Professional. It was running quite slowly, so I reformatted and installed Windows XP Media Center Edition. Even when I was just first installing drivers (that I loaded onto my flash drive from a safe, virus-free, and malware-free desktop with internet access) onto this M1210, it was taking 10-11 minutes to just log off.

I have the "welcome screen" turned off, so it says "Logging off..." for about 10-11 minutes (when I didn't have the "welcome screen" turned off, it was just a blank screen [my wallpaper, but no taskbar or icons]). Then, as soon as that's finished, it takes ~10 seconds to actually shut down.

It's not hanging during that ten or so minutes, as when I press the caps lock button, the light turns on.

When I run it in Selective Startup Mode, even with all of the start up options checked off, it logs off quickly and shuts down quickly. When put back into Normal Startup Mode, it goes right back to taking forever to just log off.

Something curious - in my System Information, the OS is listed as Windows XP Professional. However, the log off window says it's Windows XP Media Center Edition. When I was using the Windows XP Media Center Edition CD from Dell to install it onto the M1210, it said it was installing Windows XP Professional, but I thought nothing of it. Is this a mere coincidence?

I installed the drivers that I got directly from Dell's site. Th... Read more

My daughter has a Dell XPS M1210 laptop running Windows XP Media Center Edition. She got fooled by PSGuard and thought she was downloading antispyware software after a warning came on her screen. She ended up with the TrojanDownloder.xs and the SmitFraud problem. With a lot of assistance from techs on this site (thank you, thank you....). I was able to fix all the problems. At least that is what I thought.

Recently she tried to burn a audio CD. The CD drive reads CD's and DVD's but won't allow her to record. The drive had worked in the past. Is there a chance there is still a registry problem here that is preventing the drive from recording? She has reloaded the software from Dell. She uses Itunes, Windows Media Center, Nero, which in the past has allowed her to record. All worked in the past.

Thanks in advance.

I just remembered to update my system specs for the extra info about my laptop, and I figured I might as well announce the good news for any poor wanderer searching for such info. A few months ago, I installed Win 7 32-bit on my Dell XPS M1210 ultra-portable laptop, and everything has been wonderful!

The laptop itself is from 2006, but at the time I maxed out the specs, and have since taken the best care of it, so it's running perfectly. I'm pretty sure 7 is even faster on it than XP ever was. All of the drivers automatically installed immediately while the OS was installing itself. The only thing I had to install myself was my Synaptics touchpad, so I could turn off tap-to-click, which otherwise was working as a normal default touchpad should. The system also bugged me about installing a driver for my SD memory card reader, but it actually worked even without it. What really surprised me is that my nVidia GeForce Go 7400 was able to do dual-screen without any further configuration! I still haven't installed the extra tools for it, but as I have a behemoth desktop with 2 screens, I do that work here, and the dual screen on the laptop is only used anymore for watching movies on the TV. Since I've figured out HomeGroup, I usually stream movies from my desktop in the bedroom to the laptop plugged into the TV in the living room. Not a single issue. All in all, 7 on this laptop is awesome!

Your story is especially heartening since it's still not fully sunk in that Win7 is driver-complete in the installer and via optional Updates with few exceptions. Many still following XPired methods think they have to change out all their drivers like chipset and run into problems. Win7 is the authority on its own drivers.

I am asking if someone could please E-MAIL me, every way and everything they know about this laptop and removing the admin password.

If your trying to change a bios setting or Reformat any of the newer Dell Laptop's you may run into this issue! There is an Administrator password you will be prompted for. I believe this is created at the factory and unplugging the bios battery no longer does the trick! I tried many different passwords combos and found that:

That makes no sense at all. If it were true then Dell would have to provide the password as part of the information it provides to customers when they buy the laptop. Anything else would subject them to being sued.

Hi,

I've had a Dell XPS M1210 for about 15 months. I am running Vista Ultimate on it, now with SP1, before the RC1. Several times, I've had problems with files getting corrupt (about every month), which have made program being non-working. I also have problems with the wireless networking, but that's another problem...

I fixed the files with chkdsk and that sometimes solved it. I can't remember all files, but it has been the login, photoshop, office, logitech cam e.g. I couldn't even start up the computer without getting the message - file corrupt, run chkdsk several times. Luckily, the RC1 solved everything. Unfortunately, I had to uninstall it to install SP1 and that time everything crashed.

Now I have used the Dell restore to get the computer running (in April). Everything worked fine, but now I have gotten the files corrupt messages twice. Chkdsk has fixed it, everything seems to work ok. But I think it is only a matter of time before there will be more problems. Running the sfc/scannow shows there are some corrupt windows files...

Anyway, I called Dell about this and they recommend me doing a clean install from CDs instead of their image on my computer. I doubt that this will work. The only thing is that this will take an enormous amount of time (since I have to install Adobe CS3, Office, etc), even though they claim it is quick. Their support is pure BS, IMO.

But hard-drives do fail, and Dell use cheap ones. You may have had a head crash, in which case particles are floating around and the problems will get worse. Does the bad block count increase each time you run check disk?

I would not waste any more time reinstalling on this hard drive.

Hi all. A friend of mine dropped a small dell XPS 1210 into my lap. The laptop is really nice in that it is very tiny, but it seems to have a wierd display problem. I originally attributed it to a worn inverter card, but I am not sure. Anyway, the laptop will boot and before Windows XP can finish starting, the display will go dark. YOu can still see the icons and the system will function normally, but the backlighting is dead.

However, when you hook the unit up to S-Video output, the screen's backlighting will work normally, and it will also output a display onto the TV. When you plug the laptop into the charging receptical, the screen will go dim, but once again, hooking it to a television will revive the display.

Anyone ever heard of this? This is really wierd.

You are correct - the backlight power supply has failed.

Hi Yet again, Windows is frustratingly taking up all of my time and I have tried everything google has to offer to try and fix it but it seems like no one has screwed up as much as I have on whatever forum. Let me explain the problem: I'm trying to set my account to administrator because I can't install programs, change account settings, make any changes through CMD without getting the system error 5 access denied message and I can't set the administrator account through CMD either. I also don't have the permission to change anything in regedit and I can't even reset my pc because it requires an administrator password which I don't have, is not "nothing" nor is it administrator or admin or password and I can't change it through cmd either. I can't even access the administrator account because it is disabled and even with an elevated cmd I can't activate the "hidden" administrator account. I've ran malwarebytes and superantispyware and I am now looking for the Gandalf of all Geeks to help me solve this problem. I'd immensely appreciate it!

Hi
I need to either change a guest log in (kid's access) to
adminstrator, or a way to reveal or change the password
for the Admin profile. Thanks for your help.
I tried this already: Run: cmd net user guest *
I tried to rest the guest password this way but
it didn't work - I'm thinking it is because I am not
logged on as admin in the first place. What do I do now?
Thx
lrr

A:change guest login to admin or figure out admin password

you cant change an admins pw from a guest account....at all

only way to change the admin pw is to boot to safe mode and enter the sys admin account or use a hacking program iso which you can find easily but use at your own risk....

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

A:Windows 10 admin password reset or new account with admin rights

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

I have some software that only functions right if the person has administrative permissions on the machine.  I don't want to give my users the admin passwords so they can do a Run As for obvious reasons.  Is there a way to force a program to run
as administrator without exposing the admin password, like it would be exposed if i made their shortcut run a script or batch file containing the admin password?
