Laptop worked when folded and put away. Upon trying to log in, it was loading desktop, I clicked to get online and then it crashed and turned off.
When tried to restart, it never would load desktop again. Would get error messages after Welcome screen saying taskbar won't work, Dell support... not working, etc.
Tried starting in safe mode. Starts loading the drivers, etc. then freezes soon into the process.
When you try to start up normally, you get to login screen, welcome screen and then it goes to a plain screen with an error message: "Windows must be reinstalled to activate...insert CD....to begin reinstall.."
Tried Start up repair
No system restore points
No backup on computer to use.
