While the computer starts, press the F8 key, until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears.
Using the Down Arrow , select Repair Your Computer and press Enter.
Select your language and click Next.
Log in as an Administrative user, and click OK.
Click Dell Factory Image Restore from the System Recovery Options.
From the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
Click the check box that says: Yes, reformat hard drive and restore software to factory condition.
Click Next. Wait while your computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
Once the restoration has completed, Click Finish.
Windows Vista is now installed on your Dell Studio, configured just as it was when you first received the Computer.
Hope that helps.

Don't choose safe mode.
If you have in the F8 options, a Recovery Console select that and run at the command prompt:
That will look for and repair disk errors.
Otherwise, look for and select Restore my computer, from this F8 menu.
Failing that you will need a copy of Vista or XP but if you have a 64bit OS like Vista64 you will need a copy of that.
Let me know what happens. But, I won't be online for much longer so I'll send a message to a friend of mine in Ireland who can help you further since he's in a different time zone.
