Hi,

I've dell inspiron n5110 32 bit. I installed window 7 and activated window thru an activator then i installed window updates...after installing updates window was no more activated, so i ran activator again and uninstalled KB971033 and boom! now my laptop is restarting continuously. I understand I should have stopped window updates, but now F8 doesn't work, neither i can re-install a fresh window copy as i just see 2 options (1) F2 and (2) F12 nor any of those 2 keys take me anywhere; I just see dell screen with these 2 options and laptop keeps restarting after reaching there.

Earlier, when I tried to install window 7 I couldn’t do it thru restarting, going in setup, booting thru cd room etc so I did it by inserting cd in cd drive and running In on earlier vista thus installed window 7 and got rid of vista, so running cd and doing start up repair won’t work or me I guess. Now I have this continuous restart problem. I did a diagnostic check; everything is fine, I guess it’s a software issue caused by running that activator or I’m more suspicious about that window file I uninstalled, I think it’s due to that file as activator worked perfectly before I installed updates.

I am not a tech, so please help.
Thanks
Mirza

The Activator. He's the one that actually comes back after The Terminator leaves.

EDIT:
KB makes a Scheduled Task in Windows 7 that checks the computer and reports to MS about every 24 hours OR when Triggers take effect.

This Update is kept hidden and NOT installed by most knowledgeable users.

Hi Rick:

Thanks for your reply. Problem is that I aren't seeing a command prompt to do all that as F8 doesn't work, so i was wondering how do i open a command prompt in this situation. Another option i guess can be re-installing a new copy in C thru flash as i don't want to lose data i have on my other drives, but can u pls explain how i can re-install thru flash when laptop is restarting constantly upon reaching at F2 and F12 screen?
