This morning my brother tried to log on to my computer but couldn't figure out the password so he shut it down by just pressing and holding the power on button. A few hours later, I went to log on but after I get the Dell screen i get options like run in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt etc. however whenever I click any of these, my computer goes to the Windows XP logo, and then a quick flash of blue and it reboots all over again.
The flash of blue was much to quick so I recorded it in an attempt to read what it says:
A problem detected so windows shut down etc etc.
Disable or Unstall any anti-virus, disk defrag or back up utilities. Check hard drive config. + any updated drivers, run CHKD.
I'm a complete computer newbie and don't know what to do. I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with BIOS 1.0.10.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
