I took my Dell Latitude D610 in for repair. Win XP Pro SP4 OS just updated before RAM burned out & it wouldn't boot. Repair tech replaced the fan and the memory chip next to it, then added another GB of memory. Since I've had it home I've experienced IE and Chrome crashing repeatedly. I've rebooted & used F12 to try to get into setup and it continues to boot without letting me in.
First Boot: Received a ckdsk warning and ran scan. Received following error during stage 1, step 1:
Deleted corrupt attribute list entry with type code 128 ini file 3556. Deleting corrupt attribute record (128, " ") from file record segment 208769.
msconfig.exe up automatically. Checked all selections & looked good. Closed it after selecting not to see it again.
IE and Chrome crashing, Silverlight crashing, cannot load websites, windows audio services and driver support not running in services (they are automatic) rebooted again.
Second boot (used Shut Down, then started fresh): No error during startup but still would not let me in using F12 key. Repeated crashes and failure to load websites after repeated tries. Donwloaded hijackthis and installed but failure when attempting to use it led to blue screen error:
Stop: 0x0000008E (0XC000000-05, 0XBF807BD3, 0XA372DC48, 0x00000000)
WIN32K.SYS Address BF807BD3 base at BF900000
Used power button to shut down and start up again. No errors and I am (so far) able to use IE.
Ran HijackThis exe successfully and have a log if anyone has time to look at it. Please!
