HELP, I can't get past the BLUE Screen!
Thanks for the previous help everyone, but I still can't get past the blue registry error screen when trying to start my kid's Dell Dimension 2400. I can't get into safe mode, a prompt, anything! Even Recovery Console will not cooperate. I had finally decided to try and reformat the HDD but I can't seem to even do that! Recovery Console wants me to select an installation, and as soon as I select C:\Windows, it's back to the ugly blue!
My tech message is:
***STOP: 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x00000003, 0x0000000, 0xE1181000)

The last sequence of numbers has changed a little each time I get there, but the other ones stay the same. No luck taking out the CMOS battery either. All it did was make me have to reset the time
HELP or I may have to call Dell, yikes! Thanks again!!!HELP, I can't get past the BLUE Screen!

Thanks valis. What did you mean by "repair" with the disk? I'll try anything!

That article seems to refer to Windows 2000, but I guess it is close enough because I did a search in the resource center already and found this page. I am trying to avoid it but it may have to be.

I have tried that, yes. As soon as I accept the agreement, it goes back to the blue screen. I can't even get to a prompt in order to run format.

really? I did the full diagnostics that wee on the utility partition. It took over an hour to do the full scan, and everything checked out? I guess I could remove the hard drive and format it in another computer. Is that an option?

do the process of elimination.. I looked at the error on the microsoft support site and it said it could be a registry problem or a hardware problem..I'm leaning towards a hardware problem since it gave you the same error when you tried to reinstall the OS...so check the memory, hard drive, etc. etc.

so if I understand this right, even though it says "registry_error" at the top of the blue screen, it could be a hardware problem?

Yes it does. I just remembered something else that was on the blue screen. At the bottom it said it was doing a memory dump, and that it was completed. Is that significant?

vinay, first thank you for response. please make sure I understand this.

1)the only added hardware, that I know of, is a kodak easy share camera dock, via USB connection. I have disconnected it, and it made no difference.
2) you are saying to try a different windows CD? Ok I can do that, but does it have to be XP? I have another xp home that came with my Dell, plus an XP Pro that I bought about 3 years ago. I think I have a 95 and a 98 CD somewhere. I did try booting to an old Windows 98 boot disk and it wouldn't boot up from it. I suppose it could have been a bad disk.
3) I am not sure what the difference is between #3 and #4 regarding the RAM. what is meant by memory bank? the sockets on the MB?
Thanks again!
