The forums have some unsettling reports of troubles with some Dell i7 laptops. Dell appears to be changing motherboards.
Hi i would like some support for this problem im facing with my windows
Laptop: dell studio 1557
OS: Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Description: Windows was working fine but after a restart when the blue animation screen of "Please Wait" appears, the system hangs (i can still move the cursor though) and the screen flickers continuously.! =(
I tried the following to no avail:
1) boot from "last known good config" - Same problem
2) try to restore to an earlier restore point - recently installed my windows, no restore
3) try to repair startup - no errors detected but booting into windows still same
4) tried to repair windows from the windows 7 dvd - still not working
Windows is booting into safe mode which would mean that there is some driver/software related problem.
I am in the process of uninstalling all drivers and then ill try booting into windows, if it works ill reinstall all drivers again.
I dont want to have to reinstall my os because its painful having to reinstall everything all over again ...
Thanks in advance guys, much appreciated.
