Dell :: Operating System Couldn't Be Loaded - Error 0xc0000001

Apr 15, 2013

So I recently got my brand new Alienware X51 with Win8 pre-installed. Everything went well and I have had no issues until our apartment got a black-out and my PC decided to die. When the power was back on, I tried turning it on, but instead got an error message. Here as follows:


Your PC needs to be repaired

The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a requested file is missing or contains content errors.


Error code: 0xc0000001

Also I need to mention that I did NOT get any Recovery CD/DVD with the pc itself. What should I do??

Dell Latitude 100l With Windows 8.1 - Loading Files And Get Black Screen

Oct 22, 2013

I have an old Dell Latitude 100l laptop, with XP installed. I use it for University work. Now I've was able to download from Uni a copy of Windows 8.1, as an ISO image onto a DVD disc.

When i try and boot to the disc, it says "loading files"........and after a while i just get a black screen.

Is this because I cannot load Windows 8.1 onto my Dell laptop?

[URL] .... This is the spec of my laptop.

Dell :: Inspiron I660s / Windows 8 - Downgrading Operating System

Dec 27, 2012

If I'll be able to downgrade the Dell Inspiron i660s-3848BK to Windows 7?  It ships with Windows 8 in a bundle through Walmart. My workplace already has the software and several additional licenses available for Windows 7 Enterprise.

I've been reading about how the BIOS will need to be changed.  Dell Support doesn't show the i660s as one of those computers that can be downgraded.

Setup Installation :: Operating System Wasn't Found - DELL XPS 420

Apr 1, 2014

I have a Dell XPS 420 and I've just bought an SSD for it. Every time I boot the machine I see "Operating system wasn't found" now, despite having booted into Windows successfully just before.

The only change I made was connecting a standard SATA 2TB drive - which it boots into fine - but now when I have removed the 2TB drive I cannot boot onto the SSD.

Debugging :: BSOD While Windows Is Loading - Error 0xc0000001

Apr 12, 2014

Randomly today my computer decided it did not want to boot. It originally had a different error code, but I found a tutorial on how to fix it, I followed the tutorial and my problem stayed the same but my error code changed. Basically something is wrong with my boot sector.

The initial code was 0xc0000225 and I used this tutorial to solve it: Solution to your PC needs to be repaired Error code: 0xc0000225

After that I got the new error: 0xc0000001. I have tried rebuilding the BCD, I have tried fixing the master boot record. I even started to go as far as to do a system "refresh" but windows told me that the HDD was locked and I have to unlock it to do a refresh, which Id much rather not do. When I tried to rebuild the BCD it detected my OS but when I told it to add it to the boot list it says "The requested system device cannot be found".

The weirdest thing is everywhere I look I am told to use the windows startup settings but they are totally missing from the menu. I booted to my bootable Windows 8 64 bit flash drive, selected repair my computer, then selected troubleshoot and advanced options and the only things that are available are system restore, system image recovery, automatic repair and command prompt. right under command prompt is where startup settings should be. I cant reformat because I have a lot of stuff that would take forever to get back like music etc.

Automatic repair didnt do anything. Safe mode does not boot either.

Laptop specs:
Asus VivoBook s500ca
Windows 8.1 Professional
8 gig of ram
intel i7 processor
HD 4000 graphics
500 gig HDD + 24 gig SSD (setup as cache)

Windows 8 On Dell XPS PC - USB Back Up Drive Loses Files But Not Folders

Jul 31, 2014

I am running windows 8 on a dell xps pc. I have 2 large 3tb and 4tb external seagate drives. After a day or so they lose part of the connection. You can see the drive and folders a couple of levels deep but you can't see files. If you unplug and start again everything is there. On other machines it's not a problem. When you try to eject usb hardware it displays that something is accessing the device. So it's not the drive, it's a driver or something else.

Dell :: Installing Windows 8 Using Recovery Media - Error 0x4001100200001005

In july 2013 I have installed windows 7 (because of s/w that I had to use and were not supported by windows 8) on my Dell Inspiron (Service Tag DYGGMV1, I know its out of warranty) and was guided by dell support and was assured that I will be able to again install windows 8 with recovery media, and when I requested for Windows 8 setup CD and key I was told its not needed as I have recovery media with me.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 Update Error 0xC1900101 - 0x40017 On Dell XPS 18

Aug 27, 2014

I have a Dell XPS 18 portable all-in-one machine that came with Windows 8, then I updated it to Windows 8.1 without any problems. It caught a nasty virus and I had to restore it to factory settings, which leaves me back at Windows 8.

I have tried multiple times to install the Windows 8.1 update through the Microsoft Store but keep getting Error Code 0xC1900101-0x40017. I have tried the following but get the same result;

Ran all of Windows Updates that would come up Verified that all drivers were up to date. My video driver is NOT a Nvidia but an Intel. I've seen posts stating that this driver needs to be updated in order to fix the problem. Ran Selective Start Up

Dell :: Page Fault Error In Windows 8 / Restarting With Blue Screen

Dec 29, 2012

I'm experiencing a problem after installing Windows 8 on Dell Inspiron N7110.

When I leave my laptop on for a while, it restarts because of a blue screen with the error: 0x00000050; PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

It only happens when the laptop isn't used but is still on. When I'm working on it this error doesn't occur.

I checked RAM and HDD with Dell Support Center PC Checkup (even RAM stress test) and it shows no errors. Besides the HDD is new, as my old one broke and Dell replaced it.

I updated all my drivers from Dell's Website, so they all supported by windows 8.

Windows 8 Drag And Drop Files ERROR

Mar 16, 2014

I have Windows 8 [haven't upgraded to Windows 8.1 yet] and the past few days I am having ALL kinds of problems.

[1] My ability to drag and drop files and folders is no longer working.
[2] Things are opening on one click, even though I disabled that feature and set it for double clicking only
[3] I can't grab and move windows that are open, it won't allow me to do that.
[4] I also just noticed that a lot of programs that have a drop box, when I click on them, it doesn't drop the box, it just blinks down and then you can't select anything.

I'm not getting any error messages. I tried the two things listed as far as registry editing...but the one that shows the drag and drop isn't even in my registry editor I can't change it from 0 to 1 -- it's no longer there.

Also I tried to follow another suggestion [thinking it might be a virus] which stated to shut down windows restore first. When I did that it deleted all previous restorations so I can't even go ahead and try to restore.

Lastly, I do have an ongoing antivirus and spyware...both of which I run on a daily basis....

Audio :: Windows 8 - Occasional Buzzing Sounds While Playing MP3 Files On Dell XPS 8500

Oct 18, 2013

Ever since I installed Windows 8 (and now Windows 8.1 Pro Preview Build 9431), I hear occasional buzzing sounds while playing .mp3 files on my desktop computer (Dell XPS 8500). This occurs using both iTunes and Winamp. The .mp3 files play fine on other devices, such as my iPod. This makes me suspect that this is a Windows problem.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Cannot Install Required Files Error 0x8007025d

Dec 27, 2012

I bought a new SSD and want to do a clean install on it, however am having problems during the install process and receive the following message:

Windows 8 cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x8007025d
The install images was downloaded from the Microsoft website and I have tried using a USB thumb drive and DVD install disc and both receive the same error. I have used the DVD disc when I originally installed Windows 8 Pro on the same desktop but on an IDE harddrive and believe the disc should still work (i.e. no scratches on it).

Here's how I prepared to install:

1. Unplugged all harddrives except for brand new SSD (Crucial M4 128 GB SSD)
2. Changed bios settings to AHCI (before was on IDE) (using Asus P5k-V motherboard)

I'm not sure what's going on if the harddrive is corrupt, the bios settings need to be tweaked, the drive is incompatible with my motherboard or something else.

I don't want to go back to using the IDE drive to boot windows but rather use the new SSD.

Apps / Software :: Get Error When Opening Excel Files Through Windows Explorer?

Mar 21, 2014

Whenever, I try double-clicking an Excel file in Windows Explorer, I get an error message that says "There was a problem sending the command to the program." I tried Microsoft's solution of unchecking the box under options that says "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" but it was already unchecked. I checked it and unchecked it and I'm still having the problem. This is using Excel 2013 with Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Dell :: Inspiron N5010 - Error 0x400110020000100a During Restore

Nov 21, 2012

I wanted to restore my laptop back to factory settings before passing on to a friend, but when running the DataSafe restore software something went wrong and the laptop will no longer boot...doesn't seem to recognise that the hard disk is there.

BIOS settings recognise the disk and going into Boot Options (F12) I can get to diagnostics which gets as far as the memory tests then the processor overheats and the laptop shuts down (which was why I got a new laptop in the first place!)

Fortunately (I thought) I have the Recovery DVD that I created when first used the laptop, that boots fine and but when try to restore to factory settings it produces the error 0x400110020000100a as soon as the formatting screen comes up.

The laptop is an Inspiron N5010 if that makes any difference.

Dell Inspiron 530 - How To Transfer Email Folder Files From Old Computer Using Vista

Dec 31, 2012

I have been trying (without success) to transfer my e-mail folder files from my old computer (Dell Inspiron 530 using Vista) to my new computer (Sony Vaio using Windows 8). The transfer is from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail.

The recommended method on the old machine using a flash drive is as follows: File-Export-Messages-Microsoft Windows Mail-Select Folder (K:New Folder)-Next-Select Folders-Next.
At this point the folders should transfer to the flash drive. Unfortunately I keep getting and error message that says that "Export did complete successfully and Windows Mail was unable to export all messages" - (in fact only a few messages were transferred) The message then goes onto say that " your disk may not have enough space (it is a 32GB flash drive and has more than enough space!) or that some messages may be corrupted. Run disk clean-up or delete some files and try again". I have done this without improvement.
Another approach that was recommended was to find all of the e-mail files (.eml files) and copy them to the new computer via the flash drive. I can copy them to the flash drive without problem but am not sure how/where to import them into the C: drive of the new computer.

Dell Vostro 270MT - Unable To See Files In Metro App (Music / Pictures)

May 15, 2013

I have a new Dell Vostro 270MT running Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. I'm having a problem in that the Metro Apps (Music, Pictures, etc) are not seeing any files on a second internal HDD.

I have gone into Windows Explorer and explicitly added the file location (e.. E:Music) to the relevant Library (e.g. My Music). When I click on the library, the files appear there and I can open them from within Windows Explorer (by selecting the file and choosing "Open with"). Individual music files will open with any of the installed programs including Music, Media Player or VLC. Similarly picture files are visible in Photo Viewer or Pictures.

But when I return to the Metro/Start screen and select the relevant app (e.g. Music) - no files appear.

If I copy a file across to the main library on C: - then the file will appear in the app. (But I want to keep all my data on a 2nd internal HDD rather than fill up my C: drive).

I have tried:

- Uninstalling and reinstalling the app
- Explicitly setting the folder type to "Music" or "Pictures" or whatever is relevant, as well as keeping it as "General"
- I have added the file to the library by (1) going into the library and adding it to the list of locations to be accessed, as well as (2) going to the E: drive, selecting the folder and adding it to the library

None of the above work.
