From the minimal description you provided, it sounds like 1 of two things. Either OS problem/virus/spyware or bad hardware. Try to write down the message generated when the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) appears and google it.

To scan for bad hardware (sounds like it might be a bad hard drive), use the tool Hiren's Boot Disk 9.4. Replace the bad part and then update the system/reinstall windows (if it's the hard drive)
Good luck

I cant get the svideo to stay on after initial startup


Did you try pressing the FN (function) key and F8?
F8 should have what looks like a computer or tv on it in blue.
Hope that works!

When I turn on Dell Inspiration 1525 laptop. after 2 minute it appear blue screen error and then restart the system.


As soon as you see your "wallpaper" on the Windows desktop, click Start.
Point to My Computer.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click Advanced.
Below Startup and Recover, click Settings.
Click to remove Automatically Restart.
Click OK.

Now, the next time that you see the "Blue Screen Of Death", what message _stays_ on the screen? Write it down. On another computer, do a Google-search for that string, and read what others have done when they have gotten the same error-message.

Blue screen of error with memory dump message and Vertical line


try to use an external monitor, plug it on the system and let it work with it for an entire day, it the problem occurs on the external monitor, it can be the video card, but if the problem doesnt happen on external monitor, its the lcd. try also to go to bios, by pressing F2 when the computer turns on and you see the dell screen, it will go to the bis an let it stay there for hours, if the problem happens in bios, video card is indeed bad. you said you have tried the diagnostics? is it by pressing Fn and power button? if the diagnostic looks fine, its a software but you mentioned you have reinstalled the operating sytem already,so focus on the hardware part. i believe your video card might be intel which is integrated or nvidia,for nvidia, lots of issues for it. so better try the external monitor or go to bios.

System will start to boot dell latitude C600 Bios revision A22 Phoeniz Technologies but a white screen appears with (This computer system, #field**-595B, is protected by a password authentication system....


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.
