If I just turn on the computer and don’t do anything else, I first get a Dell screen for about a second, then a black screen that says:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware of software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren’t sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Starting either way, if I choose either Last Know Good Configuration or Start Normally, I get the Windows startup screen for a few seconds, then the blue screen / stop error:
An attempt was made to execute non-executable memory.
If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart 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.
