Question about Computers & Internet
The video doesn't show what you describe. The video shows that Windows is loading. Try booting in safe mode. Here's how:
Power up the machine. When the Dell logo appears, start tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears amd choose "Windows Safe Mode." Once windows starts, backup your data just in case. Then try to determine what it was you did last that may have caused the problem. Then try to start normally.
Hope this helps

Sounds like you are having issues with the motherboard since we are talking about a laptop here. However, there is a way on how we can isolate that the motherboard is the main problem. Remove the memory by clicking this ---> http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6400/en/om/parts.htm#wp1103163
If in case the system would still act the same, call up Dell with the service tag or express service code to have the motherboard replaced.

Usually this happens when the vista boot loader fails. During boot up, keep tapping F8 and then select Disable Automatic Restart... and get the stop error code which usually starts with 0x

The DST error code 1000-1046 is definitely a failing hard drive. ..I am not sure why your laptop is not recognizing a CD in the drive, but you should go into your BIOS settings, and in boot sequence, make sure that the CD drive is the first boot device. If you can't boot from a CD, you are not going to get very far with installing a new hard drive...
