Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 laptop running Windows 7. It has a 160 GB hard drive, 2 GB memory, no optical drives. It came with a starter version, SP1 of Windows 7 installed. I turned it off yesterday and today it won't boot. I can only get to the screen where it gives you the choice of loading the "repair option" or "boot normally". Neither one works and the PC shuts off.

I've checked the internal connections to the hard drive and the memory chip, everything is secure. Is there anyway to repair the OS using a thumb drive?

Thanks
