    How old is the hard drive... and how old is your XPS Gen 2... which has always been a lot of trouble in our shops.

    Sounds like a hard drive failure or a memory failure or something else big like a cpu fan failure.

    i think i solve the problem in one HD. i reinstal OS and everything is working fine i thing. i have my pc since 2004 and i stop work on it for 3 0r 5 years.
    i have another HD and has the same problem but i didn't plug it again so i wounder if plug it will give me the same error. i have 2 serial ATA HD but only one is connect to the mboard. how can i copy data from the HD that has blue screen erro to the one that has fresh OS. i also went online on dell and download some fix using service tag#.
    thnk keep me post
