Hi,



I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and today I suddenly got a blue screen error message, the main message said "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". After rebooting, I got the same message. Then on the next reboot I couldn't get to the login screen.



I used my Dell OS Recovery CD that I created to try and repair Windows XP. It asked for a place to partition/fragment Windows, and then it went through copying files etc.



After that, I tried to restart, I got the normal Dell Boot screen but then it went to a black screen, with only a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner.



I cannot do the Ctrl Alt F11 option to recover Windows XP, I can only either choose F2 or F12 at the initial boot screen.



Please help, I really do not know what to do!



What is the blue screen error message all about? I haven't installed any software or hardware so I do not see what might of caused the problem!



Help!

Do you have another windows xp cd you can get your hands on? I recommend performing a checkdisk repair on your computer and see if that helps.

Ok, I ran the diagnostics test from F12 on boot, then it said No Diagnostic Utility Partition Found. To run diagnostics, insert your Dell "Drivers and Utilities" CD.



I only have the Dell OS Recovery CD, I did try using this and rebooted windows, when it came back on it told me to press any key to boot from CD, but none of the keys actually worked.



I will try and use another Windows XP CD to see what happens.

Any other options?
