1. I changed my driver to ACPI advanced configuration and power interface

2. Restarted computer

3. It says that windows didnt start successfully a recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

and i have 5 options to choose from:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe mode with Command Prompt
Last known Good Configuration ( your most recent setting that worked)
Start windows normally

I have tried these 3 options but doesent work

Safe Mode
Last known good configuration
start windows normally

When i chose last known good configuration or start windows normally it just went to a black screen. If i chose Safe Mode it would type in some code and then i'd have to restart the computer again.

I have tried loading defaults and IT DID WORK :)....BUT i restarted my computer again and it doesent work again? I tried loading defaults again and it didnt work?? I keep doing it but not workin

The computer i'm having problems with is a Dell inspiron 530

Back to safe mode..

How long did you wait for it?

Safe Mode it would type in some code

Those are the minimum drivers being loaded. For some this could take at least a few minutes. Have you tried letting it load? Wait at least ten minutes.. if no response we'll try something else.

Do you have your original Windows CD?
