Problem: My notebook Dell Inspiron 7500, Windows XP Profesional. I'm
unable to start the windows XP profesional.
I can still reach the advanced setup sceme for safe modes etc, by
pressing F2 or F8. Also unable to startup the system in safemodes nor
all other possible ways through the F8 menu.


System gives an possible unexpected power failure, when I startup the
system apears the traditional windows XP screen but before the welcome
screen appears, appears a blue screen saying something about virtual
memory dump. This screen disapears so quickly that I'm unable to read
the complete message.
I have no XP software or what so ever, notebook was in my possesion
never connected to the net.


WHAT TO DO ????

From what I gather in your post, your laptop keeps kicking into a blue physical memory dump screen as it's trying to boot into Windows.

There are a couple of things that can cause this - some hardware and some software - but it all depends on whether you're able to read what caused the problem before the computer reboots. For example, if it's pointing to a memory address in the IDE channel, then it's hardware... but if it's pointing to a file in the system32 directory, we're dealing with a software issue. Most physical memory dump issues I've seen were caused by a malfunctioning actuator in the board of the hard drive, other hard drive related issues, or a faulty IDE controller. But we'll have to see here.

Since we can't see what exactly is causing the issue, your best bet as a first step is to do a full system recovery using the CDs that came with your computer. This will wipe the hard drive clean and restore your computer back to original factory settings.

Yea... revert to factory settings... just take your Dell recovery disks... that's about it. Unless you can get a copy of Windows from someone, then go reinstall from there. Now your dell is screwed..
