When I start my pc I can see the windows startup logo with the bar running under it. Then a blue screen with text shows briefly. (Can't read this but it obivious that's a error message.) I am then given the option to start as normal, in safty mode etc.. I have tried them all several times. The same thing happens. I wonder if this is a memory problem. Any suggestions? Thanks

The blue screen is extremely irritating I'll admit to you. Usually it happens when Windows doesn't want to comply with some hardware/software that is being run. I know this happens every time I plug in my webcam.
In your start menu search bar type in: msconfig
Under the startup tab, click to disable all. This will prevent any third party software on your computer from interfering with Windows, giving you a blue screen.
Hope this helps!

blue screen aka bsod. when you get this bsod it will show you stop error code. you need to get the code to identify the exact issue you're having. If the bsod occures after the dell logo issue might be the video card or memory. if the bsod occures after windows logo then if might be caused by a corrupted windows updates or windows system file corruption. if the bsod occured after dell logo then check your memory if you have 2 ram modules try to remove 1 ram first then try booting your system using only 1 ram, try to swap and isolate reseat and teach eash slot on each ram module. if bsod occures after windows logo then try to run a test for your hard drive Fn+Power. If no errors it might be windows file corruption which needs to be restored or re-installing OS.
sounds like a registry error try to start in safe mode if it does the same thing then when it starts to boot and says xp and the bar starts to move hold down the on off button till it goes off and let it set for a bit (let the hard drive stop turning) and reboot should send it into chkdisk whick will correct the registry error
the error: (Under this test, results show Error code 5300: 0119, which different comments for different parameters) Msg: Detected a failure while writing and reading video memory. (e.g.) Video mode: Dh (320 x 200 16) Address A002Ch, expected to read Oh, but read 1Dh instead *
indicates the video card has failed and need to be replaced.
check the video cable
and see if it;s properly seated.
run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot.
most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.
