Question about Dell Studio 17 Laptop
I think I solved the same problem I was having with my Studio 17...also purchased at Best Buy. The problem was the same as you describe...blue screen after Windows update, stating a problem with my new camera software. After system restore, restoring to factory specs, virus scans...etc. the same problem kept occurring...at start-up I would get a blue screen. The only way I could get the computer to start was to remove the battery (while it was on doing it's scan), wait a few moments, replace it and turn on. For some reason it would finally get to the windows screen. Since it kept stating a problem with my camera software, I looked to see what programs begin at start-up and the Web-Cam software was one of them. I simply right clicked on the Web-Cam icon in the system tray and there are several choices all of which I de-selected (Start Web-Cam when Windows start....etc.) I have not had a problem since then. The Web-Cam still will work properly if you select it from your program list.
I have read several postings about this similar problem even on Dell and Best Buy's sites. I'm not sure if this will totally insure me of never having this problem again but, at least, right now it seems to be "the fix".
