My dell latitude older model only boots in safe mode now; when I do a normal boot, it blue screens N says inaccessible boot device whether i use a battery or charger.

Win 10 does load in safe mode, but after doing the repair mode procedure. could it possible be a corrupted BIOS ?

    no, thats not it because it gets past the BIOS, plus the date is right everytime proving the clock battery is good. n at times pc will load ok without blue screening, but when i restart it will bluescreen as long as it is plugged in.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude c640 Disable BIOS memory

Just use recovery console of windows xp bootable media and use the following command.

chkdsk (to check the volume).
fixmbr
fixboot

It happens due to improper shutdown methods which has caused the system volume to corrupt the MBR.

It is a hardware problem most likely or maybe no operating system, but most likely the devices not being connected. to the mainboard and such. if you have a warranty call dell or go to their website at http://support.dell.com/

Taken from Microsoft themselves ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555302 )

SYMPTOMS
When booting up to Win XP you may get a error that reads "Unmountable Boot

CAUSE
1.The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.

2.You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.

3.The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.

RESOLUTION
If it be the connector cable problem then replace the 40-wire cable with an 80-wire UDMA cable.

If it's a BIOS settings problem then load the 'Fail-Safe' default settings, and then reactivate the most frequently used options such as USB Support.

If it's a damaged file system case then:-
1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.

6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.

Dear, Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems. What you can do is if you have more than one memory modules, you can boot the system with single and see. If this is due to memory leakage issue, you can find it here

I av a dell latitude c500/600 and need the usb driver its running on xp cheers


All drivers for XP in the C600/C500 should be native to Windows XP Dell never shipped XP on that model so they never had any drivers for XP.
If you have issue with USB devices on that model, try booting to the safe mode, remove the USB devices in Device Manager, then reboot in normal mode and let them re-detect.

Will not reboot...continues to go back to "We apologize for the inconvenience screen"


First, see if you can run diagnostics from the F12 menu or from the Dell Resource CD and see if the HDD or any other hardware indicates a failure. If you are having a hardware failure, there is no point in trying to fix a software issue until the hardware is fixed.

If the HDD fails diags, replace it. If it passes, then try booting to the XP CD, and see if you can boot to recovery console, and run CHkDSK /R

Getting out of the initial set up


First try to Boot to Last Known Good Configuration.. do this by pressing F8 upon bootup...look at the prompt screen for the option mentioned OR

Attempt to boot up in Safe Mode....
Do This by pressing F8 Upon bootup, it will take you to a black Safe Mode Options screen... once there choose the first option.. boot into Safe Mode Only.. If you are able to boot into windows that way,, you can then check for problems... Like checking the device manager for errors, Check the Status of your hard drive.. etc.
