Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
When I turn it on it goes to the black/white screen that comes up when you don't shut down properly. Tried clicking Safe mode/last known good configuration etc but all the options just make it go to the windows loading screen (with the bar page) and it eventually fails.
Then I'm left with a blue screen saying STOP: C0000218 Unknown Hard Error. Unknown Hard Error. Beginning dump of physical memory.
But it doesn't do anything! I've taken the battery out and put it back in but I have no idea how to fix this. Had it literally 3 weeks! Help!!!
There is a hardware problem with the laptop causing it not to boot up, if you have only had this laptop for 3 weeks then i recommend you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and sent it in for them to deal with as a hardware failure within 3 weeks is quite rare.

Put the Dell CD in the drive bay. Turn on the computer and start pressing <F12> key. It should say "Preparing one-tome boot" When the screen shows a selection menu for the boot device, use the arrow keys to select the CD and press <Enter> key. That should run the Dell CD. Follow the onscreen prompts to run diagnostics checks

When you end up with a registry corruption, you are limited to what you can do. First thing I would try is this. When you power your system on and immediately after the POST boot, begin pressing F8 on your keyboard. This will bring up a Windows Boot Menu. One of the choices you will see if, "Last known Good Configuration..." If an install of software is what corrupted your registry, this should hopefully undo that. If you are experiencing hard drive failure, this will probably not fix that.
If last known good configuration does not work, I'm afraid that the only other solution is going to try and do a parallel installation of Windows so that you can save your existing data.
What Operating System are you using?
