Dell XPS1530 Problems

Unread postby lm04c » May 16th, 2010, 8:36 pm

Hello all,

One of my computers all of a sudden blacked out and showed that terminal 'BLUE SCREEN'. Its telling me CONFIG_LIST_FAILED, and the technical information states: STOP: x00000073 (0x00000001, 0xc000017D, 0x00000001, 0xF6D8ABB8). Upon restarting the computer goes into some "Dell MediaDirect" black and white splash logo then straight to that blue screen again.
I attempted to start the PC into safe mode, w/ and w/out networking and it skips that "Dell MediaDirect" screen but goes into another blue screen stating: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7C4C524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).
I searched the CONFIG_LIST_FAILED error on google and the common answer seems to be that my HDD is out of memory, which is not the case here. I also read another cause, which seems more appropriate, would be a boot-sector virus.
Any help received would be greatly appreciated, and a thank you in advance goes out anyone sharing their time with me on this issue.

We're sorry but it appears your situation is not one that can be readily addressed at an online malware removal forum where logs are required for proper analysis of computer problems.

As we require logs in order to evaluate malware issues, and it appears your computer cannot boot into Windows, and the problems may not be directly attributable to malware and therefore fall outside the scope of this forum, this topic is now closed.
