  • Hello Karebearjulien,

    Thank you for posting in the WGA Forum today :-). Sounds like your computer is having some problems. Has your Dell ever been turned in for repairs whatsoever? Using the Dell Recovery Media disc that came with your computer should put your system back to new. Remember to visit Windows Update and install Service Pack 2 and 3. Also there will be other updates for SP 3. Hopefully this will help you out. Should you need further assistance with installing Windows please visit Dell Technical Support.

    Take care,
