My wife has a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop that flashes the BSOD then goes directly into the "Launch Startup Repair". Then we launch the startup repair and it says:

"windows cannot repair this computer automatically
If you have recently attached a device to this computer,
such as a camera or prtable music player, remove it and restart
your computer. If you continue to see this message contact your system
administator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

She hasn't attempted to attach any device to this computer. The BSOD flashes so fast that I cannot read any info that it may provide. So far I haven't been able to get windows to start. If you try to launch windows normally it goes back to the "launch startup repair"

Additional info for the computer is as follows:

Windows Vista Home Premium
Service Pack 2
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5850 @ 2.16GHz 2.17GHz
Memory RAM 3.00 GB
32 Bit Operating System

Thank you
