Also have you tried to shut down auto updates to stop this problem them go and manually update yourself picking a few updates at a time, allowing them to install then rebooting the machine to make sure you dont have any issues?
You can get to windows update by click on your start button then on Windows Update Icon.
Myself as a tech Ive never allow windows to do auto updates as there is usually a glitch of some sort that happens. That is a lot of changes to a machine at any one given time.

My Dell Inspiron 530 (running Vista) started having video problems. (After working fine for months). It would boot and let me log in, and would display the desktop for a moment, then the desktop would refresh, the screen would go black, and my Viewsonic VG 150 LCD monitor would display an error "Out of Range".
"Out of Range" error means "I am getting a signal, but it's not a signal that I recognize so I can't display the image".
It would boot correctly in Safe Mode, and also in 640*480 resolution. But it would not work in 1024*768 resolution (the native resolution of this LCD).
I noticed that Microsoft Update had, the night before, installed an Optional update to the Intel onboard video controller driver. The driver was dated Feb 2008 and that is the latest from Intel, so I don't understand why it installed a new update in April 2009 (?).
I ran the Dell diagnostics on the video hardware and I did notice that in one sequence of about 15 screens that flashed quickly, two of them displayed the Out of Range error. So clearly the Intel video hardware is able to generate a mode that this monitor cannot handle.
My best guess is that something about the automatic Update of the driver is what broke this installation.
I removed the Intel driver (in Device Manager.. Display Adapters), so Vista fell back to its generic video driver, and the problem went away... I can select 1024*768 resolution and it boots fine.
I haven't yet attempted to reinstall the Intel driver (I'm just happy to have it working again).
Hi. I think the best to resolve this issue is to restore again your system to its factory settings or reformat again your system, then after doing it you should disable the automatic updates from the control panel so that you're system would not automatically update itself, because most of the time Vista crashes because the updates it made and sometimes you tend to shutdown your system without finishing the updates from microsoft then it would cause that crash the next time you open up your system. To disable the automatic updates just go to control then click classic view on the upper left side then look for the Windows Update icon on the control panel, and from ther just turn off the automatic updates. I would also suggest that if you to maintain the automatic update you should make sure that the updates are already finish before you shutdown your computer or you could change the schedule of the updates depends on what date have you chosen. Hope This Helps
Your trying to downgrade this means you have to use vista cd to format the hard driver, and after the laptop restart, load the Xp. Also sometimes this code comes if you donot use the original xp windows.
okok, bootmgr is what, as you may be able to guess controls the booting of your computer. the solution is simple. Get out the vista installation cd that came from dell (It DOES come with your computer) and put it in. Next, boot your computer nd you see the familiar DELL screen with a bar that loads, in the upper right, there is a thing that says F12: Boot Menu. Press F12 on your keyboard, the top should now say Loading Boot Menu or something like that. After it loads, you will see a simple list. Navigate to CD/DVD or whatever it calls the disc. You computer will now read the disc and load. Wait for it to finish. It will take you to a screen where you enter some settings. Look for the link that says "repair my pc" (you may have to enter some settings and click next first). Click the link. It will ask you to automatically fix error. Click yes and let it do its thing. If this does not work, repeat the process above, except instead of letting it automatially fix error, CLICK NO! Then it should load a option saying windows vista bla bla bla. Click that and let it repair. Now the problem should be fixed
yes your best way is to do that! i would go to canon.com and download the latest update just so thats not a factor! and the if that doesnt work just uninstall the latest update, which can be done from windows control panel!
Try this...on boot up hit F8 and select SAFE MODE and see if you can get in that way. Look on the control panel for add and remove programs...eliminate Uniblue from the program list. Reboot and you just may be fortunate. Isn't it funny that the program that is messing up your machine is the one (for money) will fix it. I still think the best way to update drivers is right from the manufacturer (ATI , nVidia, ASUS,)or the computer company (Dell-Gateway-HP) they all have driver updates for FREE in their Support area look for Drivers and Downloads. To contact their sites try the Company name and .com I also think if things are running along just fine...don't update until performance suffers. Like your daddy told you...if it ain't busted, don't fix it. hope this helps...good luck my friend
