Question about Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook

1 Answer

I haven't had a recent hardware or software change but when I turn on my Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop I get a black screen with the following message: Windows Boot Manager Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next" 3. Click "Repair your computer." If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. File:\Boot\BCD Status: Oxc000014c Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. I don't have my Windows installation disc and i don't understand any of what this means anyway. Got any ideas? Thank you.

My dell inspiron 1521 screen goes black!


Yes, most likely the inverter has failed if you can still make out the desktop but the screen is very dim. Below is the link to the service and repair manual for that model.

I have a Dell 1521 Laptop computer. The issue I have is when I Install my Cubase studio 4 or Cubase LE 4. It will Blue screen right away!! I have just recently down loaded the updated software for it. No...


oh yes ! it could have.

You should have observed that when you get a blue screen it says that some hardware or software change could have caused it. Thus when you installed the software there must have been some issues with the same. May be the company providing the s/w must have received similar complaints and the update could hav had files to prevent the blue screen.

The same happens with Microsoft as well. Some updates might cause blue screen which makes the system go crazy. Sometimes we might have to reinstall the OS as well.

Cheers !!! Your system is back to normal from the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) !!!
