Hi, I have a Windows Vista Home Basic Laptop about 2 years old. Today when I booted up my system, it got to the desktop screen and then the screen turned black and froze. When I switched it off and back on, the message came up saying that the system did not shut down properly and asked me whether I wanted to try safe mode: I tried safe mode, shut it down from there, then turned it back on. It took a Really long time to start up, and the welcome screen and desktop took a minute to load up. There are now a lot of errors in the Event Viewer, and one minidump which I'm attaching here. Please let me know what the problem is. I once had a similar problem and had to reinstall my Dell WLAN drivers. Is it the same problem again? EDIT: The minidump is 264 KB so its refusing to upload. Trying to upload as a zip file.
