so ive had a dell inspiron 6000 for a while and that had a lot issues
the screen split into 4 mini versions of itself, it got dark, and all sorts of things
but up until now i could plug in an external monitor and use it
but now it justs starts to blue screen

today i got another inspiron 6000 to replace the old one and hoped it would work in that one, but it still starts to blue screen... but now i can read it at least!

it says to me 0x0000007B (0xF79AA528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

the hard drive it came with starts up with no problems



im running XP and dont really know the stats of this new laptop yet...


also if anyone knows a fix for the old laptop, that'd be great ^^

If I am understanding you correctly the system does not boot up correctly still?
When you said you got another:
6000 to replace the old one and hoped it would work in that one

What exactly did you hope would work in the old one?

I believe the issue then is the Hard drive is dead as far as the data.
The drive may spin up but it sounds like the platter may be faulty.

You can try Puppy Linux to see for sure.

Get Puppy Linux Download this file:
puppy-2.16-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso
and burn it to cd
..
if you don't have a burning program that will burn .ISO files get burncdcc from my signature below ..a small FAST no frills iso burning program...

NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its puppy-2.16-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start


make sure in the bios the cd drive is the first boot device....

put the cd in the cd drive..boot your computer....puppy will boot and run totally in ram...if your hardware is in good working order you will know...
after you get it running and your at the desktop...you take the puppy linux cd out and then you can use the burner to copy all yor data to cd/dvds
you can also use it to backup your data to a external usb harddrive..You must have it hooked to the computer when you boot up with puppy.

That one is strange.
To me it sounds like you should start playing taps and say a prayer for that system.
The screen is not normally going to do this without some kind of software being installed.
If it does then I would say your video is really going to the grave.
