Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
This problem is related to hardware communication between the OS and the peripheral, or if there are damaged or incompatible drivers installed.
Perhaps did you installed hardware previous the error?
Try to start windows is SAFE MODE (turn the computer on, press F8 as soon the XP logo appears and select safe mode). If you are able to turn on the computer and use it in safe mode, remove any adapters that you installed previously. In many cases, you can start your computer with only the drive subsystem controller and the video adapter.
The easy way to restore the computer is using the SYSTEM RESTORE (Start - Programs - Accesories - System Tools - System restore) - just choose a restoration date previous the issue.
If you are not able to restore the computer and still getting the same error it's more likely you may need to contact a technician as hardware failure may be causing it. It may be a simple bad memory or a serious issue with the mother board.
Hope this information helps.
By the way, Perhaps a virus caused this problem. It's a good idea to check your computer with an anti-virus.
