Dell Latitude D600. Locks up while loading windows XP

My son laptop is freezing up everytime. Once it gets turned on and windows XP loads and goes to desktop. If you try to click any link on the desktop it locks up. I also notice that the intel wireless icon is not found
in its usual place. I tryed starting it in safe mode and it seems the computer doesn't lock up when you run it in safe mode but I can't get online
to get support in safe mode. Anybody have any Ideas what I can do?????? I tried to restore setting to an earlier date and that didn't fix the problem.

Thanks
JP

Hijackthis is a first line tool to examine certain areas of the computer. It does not show everything and lots of malware is hidden from it

To download Hijackthis

go to http://www.merijn.org/programs.php and download 'Hijack This!' self installer. Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Thank you Ian C. [email protected]

Dell latitude D830 will boot up to windows XP screen and then will freeze. reboot and comes up with gray screen. F2 during booting does nothing. What could it be?


Turn on the Laptop and as soon as you see the Dell screen click F8. Then click on Safe Mode Networking. Once you log into your account you will then go Superantispayware.com and download the portable version. Then run a complete scan. Then remove any viruses it picks up

When I turn on my Dell Latitude D600 PC, the windows xp loading page appears. After it has loaded the screen turns black and does not make any further progress.


It appears that your display works fine until Windows XP loads. Try tapping the key when powering on the laptop. Select boot in safe mode and see if the laptop works.Here's a description of safe mode by Microsoft.

Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.

If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.

If your display works in safe mode then you have a video driver issue or virus or software issue.

HOW CAN I FIX MY COMPUTER? ITS READING UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME?


You need your Windows XP cd for this fix.

Boot from the Windows XP CD and at the first prompt, press "r" for repair. Press 1 when asked to choose windows installation and then enter the admnistrator password. If you don;t have one, just press "enter" and it should show you "c:\windows>"

At this prompt, type the following

chkdsk /r

THis should take quite sometime but will fix the problem at the end. when you get the c:\windows prompt again, type the word "exit" and your system will reboot and load windows XP normally
