Dell Inspiron 1501 Blue Screens will not turn off

\015 Dell Inspiron 1501 boots up slowly (XP Media Center) and eventually BSOD. When the BSOD appears it remains on the screen and I can't turn the computer off. I have to remove the battery to turn off the computer. To turn the computer back on, I have to hold down the power switch while I insert the battery. Sounds strange doesn't it. I can run in safe mode and access the internet from safe mode and do not get BSOD. I ran spinrite on the hard drive and got no errors. Reseated memory and removed CD but there was no change. I know I can do a clean install of Windows but I don't want to do that. I am suspecting something nasty has happened to the software and is putting me into some sort of hibernation mode. I wanted to upgrade the BIOS but can't do it in safe mode and I din;t want tio do it in regular mode because I may get BSOD in the middle of the upgrade. \015\012\015\012Sam Neff\015\[email protected]\015
