Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook
Did you try to "Restore this computer to another point in time"? Then you press F8, and choose "System Restore" then another screen asks if you want to go to safe desktop, or do a system restore, when you select system restore,another window, a bit like a calendar, and you choose a date prior to when you had problems?
Otherwise, please try this... when dell screen comes up on keyboard hit CTRL+ F11 twice only then you will see Dell pc restore by Symantec.Hit on restore and hit on i agree and select the option Restore the pc to dell factory settings and then it will restore the pc.
Otherwise you will have to obtain a Windows Vista install DVD, boot on this and repair/reinstall from That.. anyway try whats proposed and get back to me..

when you switch on start pressing F8 repeatedly until you get the boot options.
Choose "SAFE MODE" and continue from there.
You will be asked to continue just before windows starts select "YES"
Now go into your control panel and elete the offending drivers etc.
Restart the laptop.
As for your overheating issues
Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.
Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.
If you really must do it there are some good guides here.
An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.
Do this outside with glasses on. .

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand if you remove it at all.

It sounds like the New 2GB RAM module is either faulty or incompatible.
From your notes it appears the system functions fine with the original 2GB module and 1 GB module. Have you tried replacing the original 2 GB module with the New 2GB module and see if you have the same issue? Also will the system boot with just the new 2GB module?
Recommended ram for that system is: DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)

It sounds to me like the harddrive has errors on it. First, I would try completely reinstalling windows with the windows disk. If that does not solve the problem there are several pieces of software that are much stronger harddrive repair solutions than the built in Windows one. Try this one, it is free for 10 days. You will need another computer (friend's computer?) to download and burn this software onto a CD, then put the CD in your computer and boot to it by pressing any key when it asks you to.
