That line of text tell you that the kernel - the core of Windows is corrupted or missing. Nothing left to do but reinstall: use the recovery cd that came with the pc when you bought it.

Can't start the computer, only have the dell screen won't boot


For this problem you can usualy solve it by booting into safe mode.
While booting up hold down f8, there should be a menu that pops up and allows you to select safe mode, or startup repair(on some machines). You want to select safe mode, safe all of your files, and then reinstall the OS.
Good luck!

Windows xp screen appears on Dell dimension 3000 desktop. It tries to boot up but then the screen goes black and just sits there. How do I fix this? I need to just get my data files off.


When you first turn on your computer, start pressing the F8 key about once every 1/2 second until you get to the boot menu. From there, select "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" (if you want to transfer files via network connection). The rest should be pretty self explanatory.

Ctrl+ F11 Pc restore option is not available on Dimension 3000 it was launched from Dimension 8400 model so you are not doing the right thing already. coming to the two os option there have been two entries createdin the boot.ini which is why you see two options please check which one works 1st or the second if you wanna get rid of this please do the following: Step 1: open my computer properties window start>my computer (right click) 7b978cb.gif
step 2: click advanced>settings under startup and recovery and uncheck the option time to display the list after selecting the appropriate os entry from the drop down.

You might want to print this out:

1) Turn off your laptop.

2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.

NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.

NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.

3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.

This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").

4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.

5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.

If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."

Looks like you've been getting two different Stop errors...

The 1st error, 0X00000024, aka Stop 0x24, is a Windows 2000 error. (XP is just an updated version of 2000) Microsoft gives an explanation here.

For the 2nd error, starting with 0x000000ED, Microsoft's solution is here, with additional help here.

Black screen


Is your HDD LED flashing? -Try pressing F8 on startup to show the boot menu option of your OS if it is Windows. If it does appear use Safe Mode first. If not successful try re-installing your OS.
