Ok I booted the PC and pressed F8, it gives me a whole lot more options that just safe modes and normal mode, should I choose something else? (by the way, normal mode gives me a black screen with cursor)

UPDATE: I chose last known good configuration since that was the next step you suggested some time ago, and my PC starting checking the disk, showing some white text on a black background. After that it started windows normally. It also shows a black screen with only the cursor.

OK lets now work with what we have - the recovery console

Is there an option for repair my computer ?
If so select that and we should come to this screen
Select system restore
Then select the restore point prior to the error

For some reason, every time I choose "repair my computer" the screen boots all over again and shows the DELL logo (the moment one's supposed to press F8 for the options to appear) if I leave it alone, it goes back to showing only the three safe mode options. I kept on pressing F8 every time and choosin repair my pc but it just goes back to booting all over again, like a loop

No, it just reboots as if I was turning the pc on all over again, it doesn't even show that screen; and it does this every time, so it's like a loop.

Ok this is a fairly convulated fix - so please take your time and ask any questions needed

On the sick computer

  • Run the reatogo CD
  • From the reatogo desktop select start
  • Select Computer and navigate to your C drive
  • Then go to the Dell folder
  • Dig deeper to the R121517 folder.
  • Select Dell MediaDirect Repair Utility A05.iso
  • Copy to a USB drive

On another computer

Double click the Dell MediaDirect Repair Utility A05.iso on the USB
This should open Imageburn and enable you to burn to a CD

Next you will need to back up and copy all the data that you wish to keep to a USB using the Reatogo disc, as this next process will restore your computer to factory settings I'm afraid

Back to the sick computer
  • Insert the CD
  • Restart the computer.
  • Press <F12> when the Dell logo screen appears.
  • The One Time Boot menu appears.
  • Press the <Down Arrow> key to highlight the first CD listing.
  • Press <Enter>.
  • The computer boots from the CD.
  • A Command Prompt screen appears.
  • Type cd \MD2, and press <Enter>.
  • Type Repair and press <Enter>.
  • The Dell MediaDirect Repair Utility screen opens.
  • Press the <Down Arrow> to select OK, and press <Enter>.
  • The Done message appears.
  • Eject the CD, and press the power button to turn off the computer.

Then restart without the CD and press the F11 key when the Dell logo appears

Oh dear, I was afraid of this... before we proceed, is there no other last way to maybe fix this without wiping everything back to zero? just wanted to ask.

There is one alternative we can try using OTLPE - it may not work, but nothing ventured nothing gained

Please start OTLPE
Double-click on the MBRFix icon, a command window will open
Posted Image

In the command window type in the following lines and press enter after each (please be sure you type it right) :

MbrFix  /drive  0  savembr  C:\Backup_MBR_0.bin
MbrFix  /drive  0  fixmbr  /yes

Try and reboot normally into your computer.

Thank you and I'm sorry for dragging this m(_ _;)m I just have a question about those commands, should I write them without the spaces? I copy them exactly with spaces and everything and nothing happens, but if I write them like this:

MbrFix/drive0savembrC:\Backup_MBR_0.bin (press enter)
MbrFix/drive0fixmbr/yes (press enter)

A list of commands comes up (after each time I press enter, so twice). I tried rebooting after that but nothing happens. I think I'm doing something wrong.

update: I wrote the second command like this:

MbrFix /drive 0 fixmbr

and after that is asks me to fix mbr Y/N, I press Y + enter, but nothing happens
