Start in safe mode

by mjd420nova In reply to dell laptop wont run thro ...

Try hitting F8 as soon as you get a display, that should allow you to start in safe mode. Then you can run a virus scan. If that doesn't work, hit DEL and get into the BIOS, rest the boot sequence to boot to the CD/DVD, put the Dell disk in the drive and do a REPAIR functuion from the Windows disk.

by yoshi.andersen In reply to Start in safe mode

I put the cd in but it wont even let me do that. It keeps popin up this message:
Memory write/read failure at 17FF0000, read FF10FF10 expecting 00000000
The amount of system memory has changed.
strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run setup utility.

Any ideas??
