    I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop.

    Thats all I know about it, I dont know anything about computers.

    Im sure you've probably heard this before but if you know how to fix my problem
    please explain it to me like a four year old child, I really do have very limmited experience with computers, I dont know s***.

    My laptop turns on but it wont launch windows. The dell logo screen appears and the bar at the bottom fills up then it goes to a black loading screen with a green loading bar, after about three or four minutes a blue screen appears

    this is what it says:

    A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage
    to your computer.


    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
    resrtart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
    these steps:

    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.

    Technical information:

    *** stop: 0x000000ED (0x86E7FE10, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    Thats what appears on the blue screen.

    Please help me on how to fix this. It always happens when I turn it on.
