Purchased in January 2008. Just downloaded SP1 for and have the latest BIOS A10. After downloading and attempting to boot up, the machine would start then give me two choices to boot regular way or safe way (recommended). Well I chose the recommended path. The maching goes through and here is where it gets stuck, which this information showing:
!! 00xc0000102 !! 5839/71531 (mshwdeu.dll)
After another try when the machine stopped, I got this error; it looks like I get a little further based on the number.

this sounds like a BIOS update needed, I have a jetway motherboard that did the exact same thing and after visiting the manufacturers website and obtaining a BIOS Update my PC is now as fast booting up as it is when it fully loaded. Visit the dell website if you haven't already and go to the download and drivers section enter your service tag scroll down find the BIOS part in the drivers section, Then follow the on-screen prompts carefully read how to install it write it down if necessary then update your BIOS and within a very short time you should be booting up at light speed instead of turtle speed. Hope this helps.
Very well could be due to the fact your running 64bit Vista. I would try shutting the computer off,connect the U3,then turn on the computer. Sometimes the drives come with software that could be causing the problem also due to the try to install themselves when connected. You could also try booting up in safe mode. Press F5 repeatedly when the computer is booting up and this will take you to a menu that you can choose the safe mode option and try to connect the drive in this mode. You can then load/disable files or software on the drive that may be the cause of the problem. Also try the drive in another computer if possible and if it works try getting the firmware update from the sandisk website. It is possible the drive itself could be bad.
The latest service for XP is SP3.
You need to download SP2 from Microsoft (SP2 which includes SP1).
Then you need to install SP2 and after SP2 is installed you need to download SP3 to install.
SP3 is approx 350Mb so if you have a friend who has it on a CD, then borrow it and install it using the CD.
I am not a fan of Norton, but, I would uninstall Norton 360, see if the drive letter comes back. If that works you can try to re-install your Norton, and if it happens again, use a different anti-virus.
