I was wondering if
someone can help me. I have one of my close friends laptop which I do intend to
fix for them. Its a Dell Inspiron 1525 on Vista Home Basic. To cut a long story
short her sons were arguing over the laptop so my friend just closed the lid.
But when coming to turn it back on it wouldnt boot up properly and would go into
the repair function but this can go on for hours and hours without finishing, or
if it did it couldnt fix the issues. I have tried to boot into safe mode but
this would hang on BTHidmgr.sys which I know has something to do with a
bluetooth device. I have tried to even do a clean install but this doesnt work
either it would install the files but wouldnt load up without coming up with
numerous errors. At the moment I have install Xp on to see if this worked and it
does, then tried to revert back to Vista but it still will not work. I have
tried formatting partitions, deleting partitions nothing seems to be working.
And the warranty for the laptop has run out and I cant justify spending hours on
the phone to dell and it costing me a bomb or just to get no where. Can someone
help as I'm out of ideas of what to do. Could this be a faulty Vista DVD or is
the HD damaged or maybe something else. If I can install Xp why will it not let
me install Vista. Someone said you cannot reinstall Vista if it was an upgrade
if thats the case then why have they sent me a reinstallation disk. Please help
Many Thanks everyone who
