I have a Dell Inspiron N4010, purchased 11/2010 (out of warranty).
No clue what any of my system specs are, as I can't get in to my system.
A couple of days ago I shut down my system. When I went to turn it back on yesterday, Windows 7 would not boot. It just keeps restarting over and over.
I formatted my c: partition, thinking I could restore my system to the factory settings (which would be fine with me... I have a backup of all my data files).
Sure enough, Dell's System Recovery tool (partition x:) popped up the first time I turned my laptop on after formatting the c: partition.
I chose Dell DataSafe Restore, and selected the full system backup named "Factory Image" and dated 11/26/2010 6:31:00 AM.
After about 1 second, the error message "Error 0x400110020000100A" popped-up.
That's it. I can't provide you with any DDR or GMER logs, as I can't access my laptop. Trying to boot in Safe Mode also results in endless reboots.
I downloaded and burned Hiren's Boot CD, but dare not use it on my own.
Any suggestions. Please help.
