Boot Error Tags: Boot Dell Components Last response: May 20, 2010 10:57 AM in Components Share ernestocosta May 17, 2010 9:45:51 AM Hello, I have a Dell precision 490. Today, when I turned it on it won't boot. It gives me a message of: "LGHYF is compressed" "Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" Any thoughts of what could it be?

This is the exact error | Report abuse Enc0de May 17, 2010 2:36:32 PM According to Dell there isn't an error like that! Are you 100% sure that that is the exact message? | Report abuse Related ressources Win 7 reboot and select proper boot device error message - Forum Boot Manager Error - Wrong HD - Forum Boot Error Help. - Forum Rebbot and select proper boot device error - Forum Rebuilt OS boot device error - Forum Ask the community Publish ernestocosta May 17, 2010 2:51:11 PM Yes, exactly how it's written above! | Report abuse Enc0de May 17, 2010 2:53:51 PM Just to clarify, you get this whn your OS starts to load up right? Can you get into SAFE mode? If you still have the original OS and you got a restore disc perhaps you can try that if not try to run a repair on it. | Report abuse ernestocosta May 17, 2010 3:04:16 PM Yes, the "7" screen doesn´t even appears. It's a message (same style as NTLDR) but with LGHYF. Pretty weird, no? I don't have the original CD with me but I will try to run a repair on W7, maybe it will work... | Report abuse Enc0de May 17, 2010 3:08:22 PM One more thing you can try. If you can get to the boot menu choose "repair your computer" | Report abuse ernestocosta May 17, 2010 3:35:16 PM I cant even get to that screen.. I have the w7 DVD now, I'll try to repair from it | Report abuse ernestocosta May 17, 2010 3:45:03 PM nothing... It says that there is nothing wrong with startup | Report abuse Enc0de May 17, 2010 4:01:15 PM Knowing your situation with an "unexisting error" your only option is to do a system restore, but that way you might lose your data. | Report abuse ernestocosta May 20, 2010 8:50:51 AM Not even a system restore it let me do.. I had to format it! I had my data on another partition. Thanks anyway | Report abuse Enc0de May 20, 2010 10:57:02 AM Sorry to hear that!
