Dell Dimension 9100 XP Home Blue Screen
I had 2 extremely tech literate friends involved and we never would have found this particular fix. I can boot into other operating systems, just not microsoft xp. Your advise is flawless and saved my but just as you have done for so many others. Saved having to spend ages trying to sort this out. http://xmailing.net/dell-dimension/dell-dimension-e310-blue-screen.php

I then downloaded the latest drivers from nvida's website. Crap. http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/17401737

Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Ask a question and give support. Support for OEMs. Make sure you set it to Master.
Interesting... navigate here Ask a question and give support. According to one technician (friend) stated that all my programs and files are there. In the setup, I had to switch to "Combination (SATA/PATA)".

Expert: DRobertson replied5 years ago. I've also updated my BIOS to the most recent one off the Dell website. http://xmailing.net/dell-dimension/dell-dimension-9100-upgrade.php Mar 14, 2008 #7 Route44 TechSpot Ambassador Posts: 11,966 +70 Can you get into Safe Mode by pressing F8?
Please help if anybody knows whats wrong with this piece of crap PC. I was on the verge of giving up when I just popped the question on "the world wide web" and there it was, question and answer. http:// THANK YOU!!
Please try the request again. pressing F8 running all options with no success. All you need to do is go into the BIOS setup, and the SATA OPERATION - change it to either COMBINATION mode or RAID Auto Detcect / ATA. Just a blank cursor that blinks.
Unfortunately, that has not made a difference. Credentials confirmed by a Fortune 500 verification firm. Thanks! this contact form I must have tried like 5 times already.
Using IDE (PATA) emulation (i.e. It's not like when SATA first appeared on the scene and was controlled by a seperate chip, THEN you needed the driver in order to install windows onto one of those I used your tip on a XPS 410; not really a SATA/PATA choice, just a raid-on/ auto-config option, but it worked! Any suggestions?
But once I start to install XP home it goes through the install process until it gets to the "restarting Windows" part. http:// I am adding a second SATA drive, to store data, in my Dell 8400. If you can try running a full HD diagnostics; I'm not talking chkdsk. http:// I'm rebuilding my 9150 & figured this one out already.
Your 4 step guide saved my day =) http:// Thanks, I just called the Dell tech support, they wanted to charge me $49 for renewing my tech support fee. This was a huge help. If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. they are empty Expert: DRobertson replied5 years ago.
Thank you. http:// Thank you very much for this post (and Google for putting it at the top of the page results). tried with both drives empty and started windows normal but got the blue screen again.

I fixed the problem by (in this order) 1) Installing the lastest version of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver, downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2101 2) Upgrading the BIOS (from Dell's website) 3) Switching the Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. U slipstream the SATA driver into a WinXP installation.
