I purchased a dell laptop 3 weeks ago (Inspiron n5010) and was really pleased when it came. It seemed reasonably quick and capable of handling the programs i use on a day to day basis.
As usual the system came with dells 'bloated programs' so i decided to do a fresh build. I installed my own copy of windows 7and got the computer up to the stage where i could start working on it.
For the first 2 weeks the laptop was great, pretty quick and more than good enough for what i need. However, last Sunday i turned the laptop off for around 5 hours and when i turned it on it took me to windows 7 recovery screen as there was an error on start up.
No matter how long i left windows to do what it needed it wouldn't boot properly and i was stuck on that screen.(Wouldn't boot to safe mode)
Over the previous week i must have reinstalled 2 different versions of windows around 6 times. After the clean install the system runs smoothly again. Once the laptop is left switched off for a few hours it once again returns to the windows 7 recovery screen and wont boot.
Iv contacted dell by email and phone and been told to wait until monday. Has anybody got any ideas about what i can do? or anybody had any similar experiences?
Thanks very much
