Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

How do I get rid of this screen when I start up my Windows XP?

Yes, hello. I have this problem with my Dell Dimension 3000, and that is this screen that appears after the Splash Screen. I don't get it it says there are 2 versions of Windows XP. I don't know when this screen started to come up, but it's getting on my nerves. I am also trying to restore my Windows XP computer, and when I hit Ctrl+F11, nothing happens it moves on to this screen. If I hit ENTER on one of the choices it will start up my computer again. The keyboard works fine, the computer is in good shape, I just want to restore my computer, and I bet it won't go to the restore mode because of this selection screen. I tried the Startup options and it didn't give me a choice on how to get rid of this screen or to the restore mode. How can I get rid of this screen, and how can I restore my Dell Dimension 3000 Windows XP Home Edition?

    Well, I installed Poser 7, which is a graphics program and it requires 512 MB system RAM and I only have 287 MB system RAM, so when I am in the middle of a Poser document, it closes out on me and gives me a warning there is not enough ram. I installed Windows VistaMizer which took up over 5 GB, so I uninstalled it and it is still in there and I can't get rid of it. The computer is going very very slow. Also, the hard drive supports 33 GB of space and I only have 8.53 GB. There is a lot of reasons why I want to restore my system.

UIt looks like your Hard drive was partition at some point and you have same operating system installed on both partitions. Use a partition software like Partition Magic or else to delete on of the patition to stop having this screen.

Windows xp screen appears on Dell dimension 3000 desktop. It tries to boot up but then the screen goes black and just sits there. How do I fix this? I need to just get my data files off.


When you first turn on your computer, start pressing the F8 key about once every 1/2 second until you get to the boot menu. From there, select "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" (if you want to transfer files via network connection). The rest should be pretty self explanatory.

Dell dimension 3000. Just Black Screen no Windows XP.


From your description, you were able to boot the machine properly in Safe Mode. While in Safe Mode, change the video resolution to the lowest possible (color depth does not matter at this point). You should also check that you are configured for single monitor operation if your video card supports multiple monitors. Reboot the machine normally. If all goes well, you can readjust your video settings for a higher resolution again.

Looks like you've been getting two different Stop errors...

For the 2nd error, starting with 0x000000ED, Microsoft's solution is here, with additional help here.
