Hi,

I am using Dell Inspiron 530S. Also it has a 2GB RAM. I was using Ubuntu Linux, as my Operating System until a few days ago when my operating system crashed. Then I installed Windows Vista successfully but after working for a few minutes a blue screen is showed for a second and PC is restarted.

I was unable to see the error message as it happened so fast. How can I solve this problem??

Any Guess.

Problem in installing Windows Vista

I have a solution for this and it successfully works. I had Windows Vista Home basic  on my computer. So I had to get Windows Vista ultimate, then I changed my computer BIOS to boot from DVD/CD drive. Then I restarted my computer and it did that and then it asked me if I wanted to reformat or repair the disk. So I typed in "R" and it took me to recovery console and then in there I typed "CHKDSK" after few minutes it came with results and then after this I typed in "FIXBOOT" and pressed enter.

This command makes a new startup sector on the system partition. After that I typed in exit and then it restarted my computer. After you restart, it will ask if you want to start your system in safe mode, regular mode and other mode. Than choose the, "last good configuration" and after that your computer starts normally with no BSOD problems or error and you still have all the data available on your computer.
