Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

2 Answers

Windows will not boot

Our laptop will not boot up windows, the logo appears briefly then it switches to a blue screen which says 'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.' It wants me to run CHKDSK /F but from the advice I have read I need to be in Windows to do this! Windows will not run in Safe mode or in last successful configuration, it really won't boot any way, any how. I removed some icons from the desktop and when I went to copy a CD, it wouldn't do it so I tried to System restore and it hasn't booted since. I think I may have removed something I shouldn't have. Can anyone help please?

It looks like a possible corrupted operating system, if it is possible to open the laptop up, unplug and replug the RAM and if possible the hard drive too, this is too reisky but it can help out. if it is not possible, go to your BIOS, then put the CD rom in BOOT Priority, then reboot the computer with the OS CD in the CD Rom, once the window initializes, you will see a "Repair / Recover" option in the CD, select it and let it run.

if that did not work, OS reinstallation will be your final fix, but do back you files up if in case.

should you have other questions just lemme know okay?

hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps
contact me for any updates

While you are trying to boot up, before the Windows logo comes up, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Then try to use the option "Last known good configuration". If that one does not work, try to go to the safe mode option

Maybe is a software problme ????


While booting up, just after BIOS lists computer peripherals (prior to WIndows logo), press F8 repeatedly. In the menu pick Safe Mode (Command Prompt). If the blue screen of death doesn't appear, type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. This might fix some hard disk issues that were preventing normal boot up.

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
