The problem of your laptop is that once it has been attacked by a virus. In that very case that virus may be removed but the damage it has made to your OS cannot be restored unless you format your laptop with Windows XP/Vista.
Or next best reason may be problem with your laptop RAM.
You should quickly consult a good hardware engineer for sough ting your problem out. Bye

Update BIOS E1505/6400 fails


The link below will take you to Dell's support download site for the e1505 BIOS download.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

It is version A17. Download the file to your desktop and then double click on it to run it. A window will ask if you wish to upgrade the BIOS. Click yes. The system will shutdown, the BIOS will be flashed and Windows will restart.

The error that you mention above indicates that the file did not download properly for you before.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Wont work on normal mode


This is usually caused by a driver or program that is wrong or corrupted.

Start in safe mode. Go to START then RUN then type MSCONFIG hit ENTER


This should bring up a window that has several tabs. Click on the tab labeled startup. Here are all of the software that is set to automatically startup in normal mode. Choose DISABLE ALL. Then Apply or OK and exit. The system will prompt you that it needs to restart. See if the system will now start in Normal mode. If so you are good to go. if you want something to startup again do the same as the above and select or "check" the items you want to start automatically. Do this until the problem returns and you've located the culprit.

However, if Normal mode did not return after the above steps, you may have to update the systems drivers, un install recently installed software or possibly restore system files.

Good Luck!

The Execution Breakpoint has been reached 0x80000003


With that little bit of info, you may want to check out a couple of things...

(a) See if there isn't some file-sharing software on there (Limewire comes to mind) and get rid of it.
(b) Try booting to safe mode and running an online virus scan from http://www.bitdefender.com or http://www.trendmicro.com. He may have gotten dinged with something bad that is crashing at shut down. I hope this helps.

Problem regarding shut down


At least it doesn't Atomically shut down. that's a bigger problem.


but seriously give us a clue. no computer actually shuts down automatically, you have to push something or set it up to shut down on a timer or something. you've given us nothing to work from.

some ideas: remove the virus, remove torrent programs that might be keeping the computer running all the time, reinstall the OS.
