I have a BSoD and I can't get pass the safe mode. I have a re-install CD, but it brings me back to a BSoD. I have a Dell 1100 notebook and the code is a stop: c0000218. It tell me that my registry file failed. How do I can pass this?:eek:

Microsoft says here... that you have a corrupt registry hive...There could also be corrupted files involved.
Have you added any new hardware of software before the issue started? Incompatible hardware could be to blame.

Is the drive making noise? Hard disk failure is a possible cause.

Have you had a power outage while the computer was running? If Windows was writing to the registry when the power went off, that could be the cause.

Are you able to boot to the recovery console? Boot to bios, set first boot device to CD-ROM, reboot, and 'press any key to boot from cd', at the setup screen, press R. Let us know if you get that far...

Thanks,

I... rather someone else added new software. There were no power outages, and there isn't any noise from the drive. As soon as I turn on the computer I have a BSoD. Is it F8 or Alt + F8... I forget which. One get me to a safe mode with a boot command. Should use a re-install CD?

F12 gives you boot options--you might consider booting to the diagnostic utility partition and run the full check--it may take several hours.

Thanks, it worked. Although I loaded the wrong re-install. I spent most of the morning having to add individual programs back on my notebook.
