I'm using a DELL Inspiron 1525 with Win Vista. When I turn it on it goes to the black and white screen where it tells me there was an error and gives me options to restart on safe mode, restart windows, normally, etc. No matter which option I choose ultimately it just ends back at that screening again after attempting to go through the process. It's as though I'm constantly turning my computer on and off and on and off.
I tried putting in the windows disc that came with the laptop but nothing happened that was any different. I tried a different Windows disc and still nothing. Starting in any kind of mode, advanced or otherwise, does nothing. I'm not concerned about losing information on this computer. Formatting/reinstalling is fine with me but it won't let me get that far. Thank you ahead of time for your help!
