try this link to get step by step explanation about how to do that:


this will surely help you.
.... you know what.... it didn't work lol. i tried it and all that came up was the advanced boot menu.
so if you can tell me any other way.

Btw i downgraded from vista to xp and if there is a driver that makes it reset i may not have it seeing as i don't have every driver.
Replying to myself... and my laptop is a Dell inspirion 1501
