I was going to attempt to present my current issue as briefly as possible, then I realized that it wont even be possible.
I currently own a Dell Inspiron N5010 and it has Windows 7 Home Premium installed as an operating system. This problem i am having began as a relatively minor issue and now it has begun to bother me quite a bit as i attempt to resolve the trouble, to no avail. When I power on the laptop, the first screen loads followed by the windows logo and the progress bar underneath. Then the screen goes quite dismally black. Not blue, but black. So I immediately hop on another device and do some research and from what I have read, based on individuals who share the same problem, the best solution is to create a new boot ISO and put slap that guy on USB flash drive and just reinstall windows. GREAT! So I have at it, of course. I flip the laptop upside down and get my product key, go to the microsoft website to download what I need, and low and behold, upon entering my product key, the next screen has an image of christian bale grinning at me with his middle finger in the air (all jokes): and the text reads something to the effect of: the product key you have entered is associated with a laptop in which the operating system was already installed on the laptop (horrible paraphrasing, sorry). Now I'm aggravated a bit more. I go to the Dell website and go in and out of the support pages with a little bit of help, but the primary issue is that i need the windows 7 boot ISO or a factory reset file, and wherever it may be in this whole world wide web, it must be inaccessible to me. I am quite sure that thepiratebay or other bittorrent sites will have even less to offer as far as assistance....I JUST WANT THE LAPTOP TO BOOT UP SO I MAY UTILIZE IT. PLEASE HELP ME YOU FINE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.
with warmest regards,
Microsoft never permitted OEMs to allow Windows 7 ISO files to be downloaded - you'll need to contact Dell support to see if they'll sell you a recovery flash drive for your system (they have in general suspended this service but may allow it on an older WIndows 7 system if you ask).
