Need some computer help

Hey guys.

I have a Dell Latitude d600 that I've been trying to use for a while. It was my dad's and was given to me because he didn't need it anymore. Before he gave it to me he completely wiped the hard drive of all his old applications/documents. It worked well for about a week, then I started getting a blue screen with the error message:


I haven't installed anything on it and there was no new hardware installed. It works fine when i have it in safe mode with the networking turned off, but when I run it in safe mode with networking on i get the blue screen all over again. I've read some things on the web that have said that it could be some type of wireless driver issue, etc. but I just can't seem to figure it out. Any idea what the problem could be? Any and all info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Take it to the Genius Bar at an Apple store. When they tell you they can't help you with your Dell issues, storm out of the place and knock over an iPad on the way out.

I'm no computer expert, but I had a quick google around for you and a lot of the stuff mentioned an overheating issue. That doesn't really make sense if you're able to use it in safe mode though.

How long can you work in safe mode with networking before you get the blue screen? Is it immediate? If not, it might be possible to uninstall your wireless and/or ethernet driver and replace them. According to this: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - Windows XP Support it's most probably a driver issue of some kind, but tracking down what exactly might be tricky. If you suspect it's the wireless driver, I'd start there.

Sorry that wasn't more helpful, I don't know a lot about Windows troubleshooting.

Probably time to just restore it back to factory defaults from the hidden install partition.
Save your data files to an external drive before you reinstall.

Dell - Drivers and Downloads

Do a little searching around there, you'll probably find a correct driver to update.
