Hello, sorry if I've posted this in the wrong section, I just signed up. I also don't know very much about computers, so please bear with me.
I have a Dell XPS M1530 that runs on Windows Vista 32 BIT.
My problem occurred after a sudden power off. Now every time I try to boot my laptop, it gives me to option to boot "safe mode", "safe mode with networking", "safe mode with command prompt", "last known good configuration (advanced)", and "start windows normally". I've tried all of the options above, but immediately after (or during) the loading sign with © Microsoft Corporation, it suddenly restarts after a split second glimpse of the BSOD. The process repeats all over again.
When I select "disable automatic restart on system failure," the BSOD reads:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0x000000ED (0x8658E100, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I've also tried to boot it with the Windows Vista CD, but after the © Microsoft Corporation loading sign it just remains as a blank, black screen, no matter how long I wait.
If there are any solutions for this problem, please just leave it down below and it would be greatly appreciated!
