What that error means is that a system 32 file has either become corrupt or removed, many factors can perform this issue, only option you have is to format the hard drive and reinstall windows.

Why does my new Dell Inspiron show a black screen on startup?


If this boots up and works fine then it is just that your back ground is set to be black instead of blue. That can be adjusted in the settings on the monitor itself.

How do i by password /


I'm guessing you're locked out of your computer and can't log in? When the computer is booting up tap F8 a few times until a screen comes up. You should see the option "Safe Mode" enter safe mode and you should have an administer account that you should be able to log into. From that point you can change your passwords for your other account.

If your monitor is fine try changing the data cable to one you know to be working. If it still does not work then the graphics card needs to be replaced.

Dell Dimension Startup


try going into your BIOS and changing the boot sequence, it may be set to boot from floppy instead of harddrive. or you could just reinstall windows, but that sucks cuz then you lose all your data and programs. and not to be rude, but you shouldnt have bought a dell, they are full of problems.

Have you tried to put a disk in the floppy drive when it starts up?
It probably had a disk in before last close down, and is looking for it now when you start up.

Please vote if this was helpfull :-)
