Dell Inspiron 1545 won't Start Up

This question is not answered

My Dell Inpsiron 1545 won't turn on. It attempts a Startup Repari, but it says, "Startup Repari canot repair this computer automatically." When I click on the Startup Repair Diagnosis, it says

Root Cause:

Boot Manager failed to find OS loader.

Repair action: Boot configuration data store repair

It seems to me that the OS loader is missing. I have no idea how to resolve th is issue. Could someone help me? I'm running Windows Vista and I've already tried restoring the computer to a restore point and booting to safe mode. Neither work.

  • HI Roguepw25,

    Welcome to the Community. Try doing a PC restore, if that does not work you will need to reinstall windows using the windows reinstallation disc that you got with the computer. Below are the links that should help you with it.

    PC restore:

    OS reinstall:

    support.dell.com/.../document

    Please note that all data will be lost if you perform the above steps.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you
