Press "F8" while booting up. It should give you an option to go to safe mode.

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} 0xc0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000 HELP?!


This is not an easy one to deal with if you don't have some things like a boot disk. The error is most likely caused by something that was installed or restored wrong. The best windows option is to use F8 and select last known good config. Then if it starts you can uninstall any software that you added just before this error..IF you cannot do that then you need to be able to boot to a separated disk and use file utilities to remove any programs that might be causing this.

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v laptop and recently I have received a blue screen error. The actual message says: STOP: c000021a {Fatal Error} The windows log on process system process terminated...


First Thing I would try would be to try and boot into safe mode, keep pressing F8 (about once a second, but not too quick) after the bios screens have gone, when you get the menu then select safe mode, if it boots into this mode it is a driver issue, maybe cause by something new installed or a driver update failed. You would need to try and remove this new device via the device manager in the control panel, and remove from the computer itself.


If not this and without further infomation from the event logs, the 2nd most common cause from this is Hard Disc Corruption, this may be resolved by a wipe/reinstall of your windows OS from the recovery cd/media (you will lose all your data on the drive, you may get this saved if you go through a IT pro to do it for you), if it continues to do it, there may be a corruption on the boot sector of the drive that cant be resolved, in which case you would need to replace the hard drive and reinstall.

I dropped my laptop-on the corner where the hard drive is. It will boot up to the desktop but freezes when I try to open any programs.


When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Remove temp files.
Scan your computer with antivirus.
Then go to start menu-> run
Type in run "chkdsk /r"
then press "y"
then restart computer then it fix error on disk.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks.

Starts up till time to put in users name blacks out tryes to restart then repeats same thing


installed anything new? hardware? software?

sounds like a conflict problem, if new hardware installed, try removing it.
if new software installed, boot in safe mode (press F8 while booting, and choose safe mode). or maybe a corrupted registry file, you will need to repair it or reinstall system.

Where is safe mode option on the DELL INSPIRON 1501


safe mode is appear on the screen before the normal windows system. all you have to do is press F8 or Function 8 before the normal system comes up. This procedure is only for technical assistance, whatever any changes on safe mode is your decision. Good Luck!

Error code on dell laptop


There are two options you can try:
First boot up and hit F8 to put it in Safe Mode. Then go into your Control Panel>Add/Remove programs and uninstall Service Pack 1. Reboot and see if that works. If not try this:

Boot up into Safe Mode again by hitting F8 when it starts up. Click on Start>Programs>Accessories>System>System Restore (It may be a little diff but that is close). Click on System Restore and walk thru the Wizard, this will restore your computer to an earlier date before you installed Service Pack 1. Good Luck.

Dell 1200 Inspiron OS boot problem


Two things you should try to resolve this issue: -

  • Check that the FN button on the keyboard to switch from the Laptop monitor to external monitor has not been enabled - these are usually 3 state switches (Laptop screen ON, External screen ON, Both ON) it is really easy to accidentally hit this without realizing.
  • If this works there is no need to try the second option.
OR
  • Try booting to safe mode - as the laptop boots up and you see the Bios summary screen depress the F8 button and you should receive a screen containing several options.
  • Select the option to Boot to safe mode.
  • If the laptop boots up ok then login to XP, don't be alarmed at the change in screen resolution.
  • Right-click My Computer on the desktop and select Properties - Hardware - Device manager
  • In the tree-view containing the different hardware select Display Adapters you should see your graphics card in there
  • Right-click and select Scan for Hardware Changes if it is ok the close and reboot as normal
  • If there is a problem here it implies the driver is somehow corrupted and may need re-installing from the disk that came with the laptop.
