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!

If you can boot into safe mode, go back in time to last known good configuration. If not press F8 just before it tries to boot and select last known good configuration.

Unit wont start, gray screen then goes to a screen with options on how to start unit and then goes blank


Answer:To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.

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.

Cannot start in normal mode without blue screen popping up


Duing the startup, can you hit F8 just after the bios shows. You should see a list. If you choose, last known good configuration, what happens? If it blue screen's again, can you startup in safe mode? This is also a item on the list from F8.

Did you install any drivers recently, in the last day or two?

If so, when you boot into safemode, uninstall that driver and try to boot to windows normally.

Blue Screen of death.


You might try removing the Hard Drive from the machin and slaving it on your other machine. Then running a chkdsk in the command prompt or norton disk utilities. If either fails, backup your data on other machin and reinstall.
