Hi. I have a Dell 1545 laptop and I am trying to run Seatools, but it gives me an invalid opcode error when i try to run it.
I used it once before, and had a problem. A google search led me to a solution, which I can't remember or find again. It had me change a setting, I thing somewhere in BIOS. I don't remember.
I had a problem where the computer died because it came unplugged and the battery died. It would not start windows when I restarted the computer. I ran seatools and it said it fixed a bunch of stuff. I may have had to reinstall windows, I really can't remember, maybe I had to repair it....
The same thing happened again about 2 weeks ago, but this time I could not get seatools to run again. I tried using my windows disk to repair then to reinstall windows, and it would not work. There were error messages about not having enough room, and partitions, and a bunch of other stuff which honestly I did not understand. I have since installed Linux Fedora 20, which is ok, but I'd prefer to go back to Windows Vista, or perhaps keep both.
I am wondering if anyone can help me get seatools to run, so I can try and get windows to work, or is there another good free and safe disk diagnostic and repair program out there?
