First off next time you get that bsod error message write down the actual numbers on the blue screen those can be looked up for a more accurate meaning to the error.

If you can get a "copy" of Windows XP and use your Valid License number (probably on the bottom or back of the PC on a sticker) it will still work just fine and is legal.

    Here's a link and instructions on how to easily get your service tag via a small script. I would try it if I owned a dell myself, but the code is legit and instructions are simple. Hope this helps get your service code so you can contact Dell and get support.

Contact Dell Tech Support, provide your service tag and other info, and get another copy of your discs sent to you. Then, you'll be able to reinstall Windows. Call 1-800-624-9897.

    Dantechcom, there's no link in your post.



    Padundas, actually, if you rang up Dell Tech Support, when I called them last and didn't have a Service Tag #, I just was able to give them my billing info, and that brought up my account in their database.



    For the Service Tag also, if you go into the BIOS setup for your PC (that should be the Del key on booting, I believe,) scroll through the Setup screen, and you should find the Service Tag # in there as well. Good kuck!

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).

Windows failed to start


It seems that you are getting a Blue Screen Error. It is also known as BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
Try the following steps to resolve this issue
Boot the computer in safe mode - (Restart the computer and keep hitting the F8 key till you get Advance boot options. Select Safe mode.
If you are able to boot your computer in safe mode. Log in as Administrator, It will give you an alert which says the computer is running in safe mode, Click yes on that alert. You will be taken to the system restore screen. Click on next and select a restoration date where everything was working fine. Let the computer restore and restart in normal mode.

In case you are not able to boot the computer in safe mode, Please revert with the exact stop error. You will see a stop error code somewhere at the bottom part of the blue screen.

HELP!! (dell precision 340) im getting 4 screens when i turn on m


Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>

If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"
