I am an minister in a small town here in texas, so funds to go to a big place is not an option at this time. So I will pray for blessings for you and your family for some assistance.

I have a Dell Inspirion 1720 and it has windows vista on it. I am having a problem. When I turn it on, it tries to start a prgram called dell media direct then it goes blue screen and says something about it has stopped my computer from booting up because of a plug and play error. tells me to go to F8 on startup and chose safe mode and uninstall software. I hit the F8 it offers safe mode them I click on it and it says window xp embedded and then it restarts and samething happens over and over again. I wanted to do the F8 system restore to factory settings, but it does not even offer that to me as an option...

I would be greatful for anyhelp you may offer..
