Having problems with your Dell XPS M1530 Laptop ?

I have the BSOD problem - msconfig admin privileges

\015 Good day, I have the BSOD problem on my laptop. I'm running Vista 32 bit and have been through all the solutions on the internet. It started off with the blinking cursor problem where my hard drive was not detected. All I saw was a blank screen with the blinking cursor.That was 8 hours ago and I got past that using bootrec. Now I have the white mouse pointer problem against a blank background. I'm going to let you know what I've done so you dont suggest something already done. I've done the renaming log files and the regedit stuff via command prompt in system recovery. Shift key tricks and safe mode do not work nor does system restore. Sfc scans fail and as mentioned all my regedit values were already what I was supposed to change them to. Anyway what I'm asking for is some help with msconfig. I can only access command prompt via the vista recovery options. On entering C:Windows\\System32\\Msconfig... I receive an error that says - "You do not have sufficient privileges to run System Configuration. Please run this utility as a user in the Administrators goup."... I am the only user on the laptop and cant seem to bypass this message. However, I can run DXdiag from the command prompt for some reason. Also I've tried the net user Administrator \\activate:yes command ... I was nt too sure what it was but it did nt work. I need help to run msconfig. Please let me know if theres some way to get past this admin message because I cant seem to start msconfig no matter what. I could start regedit,etc. Also , as understood , a fresh install is my last option. Thank you for your time.\015

Answers :

Msconfig is just a nice GUI to the keys in registry, what you may have is a driver or disk problem.
run chkdsk C: /F (or /P if in repair console)
instead of running msconfig, run services.msc and disable everything that doesn't belong to microsoft.
with another computer, download Autoruns.zip
copy it to the troubled machine and run it via the command line.
It's a very nice utility, msconfig on steroids :)
