Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I turned on my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop with Windows Vista, and Windows won't even boot up. This is the error message I keep getting -- "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." (Next paragraph) "If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:" (next paragraph) "Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer." (Next paragraph) "Technical Information:" (Next paragraph) *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0x84A5DBA0, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
Help!! Can anyone tell me how to fix this? My 1-year Dell Warranty expired a couple of months ago, so I can't afford to even talk to Dell, let alone take the laptop in for repair. My sister said something about creating a start-up disk on my desktop computer, then loading that into the laptop. Would that work? If so, how would I do that? Or is there an easier way to fix this? I don't get it -- I have Windows Live OneCare on it. Shouldn't that have prevented this from happening?
have you tried pressing F8 when it starts booting (keep pressing it before dell bios screen fully loads)
you should get a black screen with options,
scroll up to with arrow keys>> "last known good configeration"
let me know if that works?
also have you installed any programs or hardware befor this happened?
