I received an Inspiron N5110 from a friend because he got a new PC for his birthday, and this one had a virus in it. I gladly accepted it thinking i would be able to fix it but it seems ive run into a ditch. When i first start up the laptop it boots to the windows logo then blue screens then restarts. The blue screen code is 0x0000007B. I tried booting in all Safe Mode's but they dont work. I also tried Last Known Good Config and nothing, also tried a restore point but it doesnt have one. Finally i went into the CMD prompt through a windows repair disk i have and noticed that instead of the usual "C:\Windows" it instead had "X:\Windows\System32". I typed in "regedit" then clicked on "Local Machine" then on "File" "Load Hive" to see what drives were on. It was there that i realized the PC was booting to a X:\ drive instead of the C:\ where the OS is. My MAIN question is, is there anyway I can set the laptop to boot from that C: drive instead of the X:? Some sort of Registry modification or a fix? Thank's again.
