Dell Inspiron 6400 BSOD Laptop Problem

\015 Sorry, I know i screwed up, and I deserve to have a BSOD!! I had an error message on start-up, and no matter how many times I clicked cancel the message still appeared. I deleted it from the add/remove programs, but to no effect. So, this was driving me crazy and I googled someone for an answer. I was advised to go into my system files and rename one file in the dynamic link library. Which I did, only I forgot one vital letter, and when I did a re-start, I got a fatal system error message and the blue screen of death. I have tried everything to resolve, from F12 and runnning all the Dell Diagnostics, which bizarrely do not show any problem. I can't get it to run in safe mode - it takes me to 'last known good configuration' but when I select that nothing happens. And, to put the cherry on the cake, Dell never gave me a backup/recovery disk with my laptop so I really don't know how to fix my problem. My work colleage tells me Dell PC's and notebooks can easily be restored to the factory settings by doing a shift/ALT/CTRL F11 but I'm not keen on doing anymore damage! Your help would be most appreciated.\015

Hi,
\015\012not to worry about the problem you are facing.
\015\012if you really want to restore your system back to factory settings...want to give a fresh start try a ctrl+f11 on the dell logo..it will help..but then all your data goes with it...
\015\012secondly if you have recieved the windows cd..you can try doing the following things...
\015\012press f12 on dell logo...select the option that says ide cd rom...put you windows cd in the cd drive...press enter on your screen.. as your system would restart it would say something like.."press any key to boot from cd"..press enter on that...you reach the windows setup screens..once you reach the welcome to setup screen..press enter...press F8 on the licence agreement screen...the next screen would give you the following options
\015\0121.to conyinue installing windows press esc
\015\0122. to repair press r
\015\0123. to quit press F3
\015\012
\015\012you need to press r
\015\012the process would take around 15-20 mins
\015\012after taht your system would restart..
\015\012i hope after that you would not get the BSOD.
\015\012
\015\012if you dont have the win xp cd you can always call up dell and request for one..it would be dispatched to you.
If you can get an copy of a WinXP cd, you boot up to it and use the recovery console to replace the file you need. On the other hand, you can reinstall windows as well.
