Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1150 Notebook ?

Dell laptop won't boot even after clean install of xp

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop. For some reason, my computer crashed and Windows XP would not load. Well I reinstalled Windows XP and had some problems with a few drivers not being installed correctly, for example the display would not change from the 16 bit (not sure exactly all the right names for everything!! ) And I discovered there were several things that did not load correctly.\015\012\015\012So I deleted any partitions and just started fresh, I did the non quick format thing, which seriously took forever! This morning, when I got out of bed, the laptop was already installing windows again (yay, I thought!) Well, it finally showed that it was complete, and I was all excited, but then it got hung up on a blue screen (after the windows is loading type stuff showed). There was a large arrow that I could move with my mouse, but nothing happened. It was stuck there for about an hour.\015\012\015\012I finally just shut the computer down, and restarted it, but after the Dell screen came up, it was just black. No windows nothing....\015\012\015\012So I put the Windows XP disk back in, and did the repair option rather than re install. It went through this little process of checking something, went to a black screen with a white line in the bottom that was like a progress type line where it was dashes, it's hard to explain.\015\012\015\012Then it showed the Windows XP thing again, like it does before windows opens, but then it goes to a blue screen (like the DOS blue, the other blue that I wrote about above was a lighter blue) and it says :\015\012\015\012STOP: c0000221 {Bad Image Checksum}\015\012The image olethk32.dll is possibly corrupt. The header chechsum does not match t (then my screen cuts it off)\015\012he computer checksum.\015\012\015\012If anyone can please tell me what is wrong, or advice me what I need to do??? I don't want to take it in anywhere because it's older and would probably cost more to fix!! \015\012\015\012Thanks in advance!\015
