I have a Dell inspiron 1525 and my warranty is done. -_- so here goes. When I turned on my laptop it gets stuck on the microsoft corporation loading bar. I've tried to boot the installation cd but it doesnt load up. I tried going on safe mode but it gets stuck on a file \windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys then the windows error recovery message shows up. Last thing i tried was to do the last known good boot up but that doesn't work. What should I do next?
insert your windows disk if you have one and select boot from cd and go to the "repair my computer" option and that should fix it =P windows is missing a driver it needs to boot thats the probolem
When I put the boot cd in and wait for the windows loading file bar. Right after that nothing happens theres no option saying if I want to repair my computer.
As posted above, F12 at powerup. Boot to the Dell diagnostics, run the quick test and then boot to the full 32-bit diagnostics, and run the extended hard drive test.
