Hi Geezelouweez,
I had the same problem of blue screen on start up often. I replace my 1 Gb memory module and everything is fine! Though it can be cause by Motherboard but chances are more on Memory.

Regards
Van

Sometimes dell has a program that can check your hardware for errors. check all the disks they sent you. It won't be on the name of the disk but it should be on one of them. good luck.

Dell Dimension 4300 desktop screen goes black after windows splash screen appears. Have reseated RAM.


After hitting the power button on your computer, throw it into "BOOT MODE" and select your hard drive. See if this helps your computer load. If so, you will have to go into your BIOS Setup and make your current hard drive your Primary Boot Device.


If this doesn't help, load your restore disc and check your drive for errors.

Your problem shouldn't be anything more than a few registry errors OR a boot problem.

I have a dimension 2400 just reformatted to factory settings everything working fine, internet through ethernet cable, but problem with speedtouch 121g usb adapter, it just will not have it. the comp keeps...


We need the BSOD error for a better diagnostic but it appears that the soft for the Alcatel Speedtouch is at fault here - as usual; find the latest driver and use it. 
How to stop the autostart: Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Startup and Recovery ->  Settings... -> System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

How can I fix Fdc failure when I switch on my Dell L866r desktop computer. I ask somebody to re booth my comp. after it was done this problem occur. Also how can I improve performance of my comp. Too slow.


hello, FDC error ( FDC Failure) is usually either improper floppy drive setup - check cablesare connected properly on the motherboard and and in to the floppy drive-inserted all the way in, not in reverse. insure that power cable in connected properly.
Bad controller on motherboard: not much you can do with that but go in BIOS and disable the floppy controller and make sure first boot device is set to hard drive or cd/dvd drive instead of floppy.

As far as performance is concerned your system only has 128 MB ram, i would suggest adding some more. Try crucial.com or ebay for good price should about 15$ 20$ for another 256mb or so.
Go tosystem tools and run disk defragger tool to defrag your hard drive.
download free tool called "tune Xp" and use defrag boot files.
go to start run and type in "msconfig", hit enter
in new open windows click on "startup" tab and uncheck all the application that you don't use everytime your computer starts.
NOTE: Make sure not to uncheck any anti-virus/spyware/firewall software you may have installed.
don't worry you are not deleting anything but just removing things from startup to speed up startup process.
system will require reboot at the end.

i hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
good luck

Dell 5150 Start-Up Problem.. beeps


Beeping on startup is a memory error. The blue screen you got was most likely caused by a memory error as well. First, take out then re-install your memory. If the error persists and you have more than one stick, test each one singly to find out which stick is bad.

Im trying to add memory to my dell dim, 4300 desktop!!


That should work without any problems since the chips are 256. You can either try a bios update or clearing the cmos before trying to boot.

Let me know what happens after you try the above.

Startup repair failed. cant get to startup screen


did you back-up your important files?, if you did, then you need to reformat your hard disk drive (hdd) and reinstall new system.  but if you didn't backup your important files, ask for help at the service center near you, cause it need another hdd to backup some files.  then if you have nothing to lose on your hdd then go ahead to reformatting. sometimes that error occur when it didn't undergo proper shutdown
