When I press the power button on my Dell Inspiron 1525 - 'Not so special edition', the screen is completely blank even though buttons are on. When I press the power button off//on again the computer turns on, but doesn't make it passed the Dell Icon start up screen. The screen immediately goes blank and this message appears

!! 0xc0000034 !! 159/58853 (program_files_common_files_microsoft_share...)
or
!! 0xc0190036 !! 1106/58853 blah,blah,blah

I'm not the most computer literate person, but I've tried it all. I've done the complete system restore option, start-up repair, system restore, windows memory diagonostic. I've done all the F2's, F8's and F12s. Nothing is working. It won't even go into Safe mode and the Windows Vista reinstallation Disk isn't doing anything.

This problem started when we downloaded Windows Update Pack 2

and the Windows Vista reinstallation Disk isn't doing anything

First of all, do you have any important data on your computer, because, if reinstallation disk is used, everything will be erased?

When you press CTRL + F11 at Dell's logo, you should be able to get to Dell's recovery partition, which should give you non-destructive Windows reinstall option.

I tried CRTL - F11 but it didn't help. I do have all my data backed up on a portable hard drive. Do you have any idea what those error messages are?
