If the pc doesn't have a BIOS password then:
1.- look at the error messages on the blue screen,
2.- the blue screen shows errors when a driver is bad or not the right one for the hardware or the OS is corrupted.
3.- try to boot using safe mode.
4.- after the logo and right after it shows the F2/F10/F12 key start tapping the F8 continuosly. If your here a beep stop tapping.

My Acer Aspire 5315-2122 laptop after welcome screen of windowsXp does not boot and blue screen shows ***stop:0x00000007B (0xF7a61528,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) and does not go beyond


For BSOD follow the steps below that might can help:

Check the cables of VGA, Mouse , Printer , Scanner and Keyboard for loose coupling at the back of computer box.
Determine if you changed anything recently.
The most common cause of the Blue Screen is a recent change in your computer's settings or hardware. This is often related to new drivers getting installed or updated. Drivers are software that allow your hardware to communicate with Windows.
Check your computer's internal hardware. Sometimes, a poor connection inside the computer can cause a Blue Screen. Open your case and check to make sure that all the cables are firmly connected and that any cards are seated firmly in their sockets.
This is more difficult for laptops. You can check the hard drive and the RAM to make sure that they are connected properly. Remove the panels in the back that cover the hard drive and RAM with a small Phillips-head screwdriver. Press the components firmly into their connections. This step is not recommended due to damage in customer device risk.
Check your computer's temperature. Overheating can lead to your hardware malfunctioning. One of the most common components to overheat is the graphics card. In BIOS post test the computer shows on black screen at start up the temperature conditions of computer box. To check it customer can restart the computer and on first screen top right or left corner will show the information of temperature. If it is more than 40 celcius then it is more likely to crash the computer. Reseat the computer in a more cooler place i.e top of the table and away from the wall for venting purpose. The malfunction of processor fan can also be the reason.
Test your RAM. A common culprit in system crashes is a bad stick of RAM. When RAM fails, it causes the system to become unstable. Open the box unplug it from the Slot Remove the RAM clean it for carbon and dust particles and plug it back on make sure when you plug it back you hear the click sound.
Test your hard drive. Run the "chkdsk" function on your hard drive to scan for errors and fix potential problems. A failing hard drive can cause Blue Screens due to corrupted files. To run chkdsk, open command prompt and type CHKDSK entre.
Strip your computer down to the essentials. This is possible on desktop pcs that take out all hardware including hardisk, keyboard, mouse etc and start plugin them one by one until error comes again.

My computer starts to boot up then pauses for a while.Gives a flick of a blue screen. Then re-boots again.


Anyone using Windows has likely experienced the infamous 'Blue Screen of Death', a.k.a. 'Windows Stop Error'. This is a common error that occurs whenever Windows senses a software, hardware, or driver error preventing it from operating properly. So basically, almost anything from a minor glitch to a major system malfunction can cause this error to appear.

Sometimes this problem will go away with a simple reboot and you may never see the blue screen again. But more typically, the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) is an indication of something serious and it will not simply go away. In terms of how to fix the Blue Screen of Death, there is no simple answer to that. Fixing it means first diagnosing the problem to find out what is wrong with your PC.

First, a quick explanation of what the Blue Screen of Death is. This error occurs whenever Windows detects a serious problem from which it cannot recover. The operating system halts all operations and it displays diagnostic information on the blue screen. All Windows XP stop errors are numbered according to the circumstances that caused the error, these error codes can help in the diagnosis so it is a good idea to write down the error code whenever they show up.

If you are not one of the lucky ones who can fix the BSOD with a reboot, then you will need to do some diagnosis to resolve the problem. With all the possible reasons for the BSOD ranging from software to hardware, or hardware drivers, it is very difficult to list a precise set of instructions for every possibly BSOD. The first step is to narrow down the possible source of this problem.

If you are seeing the BSOD randomly, even when in safe mode, chances are it is a hardware issue. If you have recently installed new hardware, this may be the culprit. One solution may be to remove the new component to see if the problem goes away. If you have not installed anything new, then you will need to investigate further. If you are not comfortable unplugging and re-installing hardware in your PC, this may be a good time to have a technician look at it.

However, if you have ruled out a hardware issue, then you will need to start up your PC in safe mode. The first thing you should try in safe mode is a virus check and spyware scan of your entire system. If anything was found, eliminated the problem then try to restart Windows XP again in normal mode.

If nothing showed up on the scans, then boot up again in safe mode and use the built in system restore utility. When running your system in safe mode, you can still access all the recent restore points created by the system restore utility. Run your system from the last known 'good configuration'. On the other hand, if you know a recent software installation is the cause, then restore to the point created at that date.

If none of these suggestions has fixed your problem, then you will need to delve even further into troubleshooting this error. If you were able to copy down the information from the blue screen error message, you can try searching online for some further advice or suggestions on how to fix it. For any error that you encounter, there are probably many others who have experienced it before, so you may be able to get some answers with a little research. The bottom line with this error is that you will need to be patient as it may require a lot of trial and error.

Hardware malfunction


Greetings
That kind of error usually comes up with Ram/memory issues. try going into the BIOS and disable memory checking. However this issue is almost exclusive to dell :)

The culprits for this is GPU, RAM among others and fix from dell does not guarantee solving the issue. It usually triggers when you use graphics intensive operations.

Hope that info is useful.

Hardware malfunction


From the error report, it sounds like you have a bad memory chip (RAM).
If it's under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement.
If it is out of warranty, go to a vendor that sells RAM and replace it (such as www.crucial.com)
