Hi. Try these simple steps: Restart your computer and press F8 when you see the Dell Screen. In the advanced Windows Option, choose Last Know-Good Configuration and press Enter. If nothing happens and you didn't boot to windows, you may need to reset the system back to factory image.

To do that, Do the first 2 steps if you're using Vista. If you're using Windows XP, on the Dell logo, Press Ctrl+F11 to boot from the recovery partition. Follow the instructions to recover system back to factory image.

Hope it helps!

You can try to press F8 after you first turn on the machine, you want to keep tapping it but not super fast or you can make a keyboard error. Just until a screen appears that will give you the option to boot in Safe Mode.

If you can boot in safe mode you may be able to also choose "Last Known Configuration that Worked" as an option.

This is about the 5th option down on the screen (NOT in VISTA SAFE MODE)

If none of these options work you will just need a Vista Disc. If you use this it will not detroy your data unless you delete the partition.

But you will lose your programs, or at least have to reinstall them.

**IMPORTANT**

You must have a regular VISTA DISC not the ones that come bundled with computers. Those will 9 out 10 times erase everything. and are meant for specific machines. Plus the usually install quite a bit of bloatware on your PC.

Won't boot - brief blue screen


Press F8 while booting but before it goes into SAFE mode select "Temporarily disable restart." Now you should be able to read the Blue Screen. If this doesn't work it's likely you have the GenericFX virus and you'll need to repair the operating system.
