this is the message that comes on screen when trying to go into xp setup i am trying to install xp right now but here is the message>

A prblem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

the problem seems to be caused by the following file: framebuf

If this is the first time youve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer if this screen apears again, follow these steps:

the device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. this usually indicates problem with the device its self or with the device driver programing the hardware incorrectly.

please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates.

technicle information:

*** stop: 0x000000EA (0x80E3C020, 0x80E6FC38, 0x80E71010, 0x00000001) framebuf


and so i restarted it and it did the same thing> i put ms-dos on it and nothing the HD is western digital 120 GB 7500 rpm

I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :tazz:

found it:

Stop 0x000000EA or THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

A device driver problem is causing the system to pause indefinitely. Typically, this problem is caused by a display driver waiting for the video hardware to enter an idle state. This might indicate a hardware problem with the video adapter or a faulty video driver.

Possible Resolutions:

• Stop 0xD1 messages can occur after installing faulty drivers (especially video drivers) or system services. If a driver is listed by name, disable, remove, or roll back that driver to confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, DVD playback, and CD mastering tools.


xp setup? did you used to have xp? if you're setting it up then just disregard and use the cd to boot for a reinstall. if not, check video driver by booting into safe mode.

To get into safe mode, immediately once past the BIOS screen tap F8 on the keyboard, this will bring up a list of startup options including safe mode.

As for driver updates, your BIOS should tell you which motherboard you have, you can then go to Dell's website and find the latest drivers. Since you mentioned that the video is integrated a BIOS update might also solve your problem, often the issues that the upgrade will fix are listed.
