Starting in safe mode means the computer is most likely OK, but there is a driver that might be messed up.
First thing to do is start in safe mode and do a system restore back to when it was working.
Next thing to do (if that doesn't work) is to start in safe mode and create a new user. Then log on as that user to see if it's something in your original profile.
You can also, while in safe mode, run the MSCONFIG command (from the command line in Windows) and go to the startup tab and uncheck everything there to determine if there are programs starting up that might be corrupt.

    Hmmm. I'm thinking a memory problem here. It would figure that once you start the install, files are loaded into memory and as the process proceeds, more is written to memory.
    Another possibility--you didn't mention and i didn't ask--Does this problem occur on a regular basis (like after a given amount of time?). If so, then an overheating event could cause it (for instance, if the CPU heatsink is too clogged with dirt to effectively cool the CPU.

While in Safe Mode, check for any unresolved issues in the device manager. I am leaning toward a video card/onboard issue.

    have removed video card,no luck, new HD windows 7, after files load and windows tries to start computer still shuts off

    byteguy has all the steps in trying to resolve this. The problem rises as Windows loads its drivers and starts services. You need to isolate the problematic one. It takes time.

    You could try Ubuntu Linux on it and forget about Windows... but this is coming from a long time Linux user.

Hi Chad,

It sounds like it could be 1 of 2 issues either the memory or your hard drive may be failing.

Please do the following:

Turn on the computer. When the DELL logo appears, press immediately. If you wait too long and the Microsoft Windows logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press .

Please choose the express test and post the results.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!
