  1. my dell 1525 laptop with vista boots to the windows recovery screen. no matter which mode i select, (safe, etc) after loading some registry drivers, the screen just shows the mouse pointer on a dark blank screen.

    Maybe failed backlight/inverter or failed hard drive? How old? How much memory. Tell us the Service Tag from the label on the bottom.

    I presume this is the memory -- 3GB, DDR2, 667MHz 2 Dimm
