Newbie here, I'm not overly technically minded, so please don't be too harsh on me. Great site you've got here. Apologies, if this has been previously covered. Had my 630 about 14 months.
A week ago, it decided to crash and then refused to boot past the Microsoft Corporation loading logo on Windows Vista (32), with a black screen remaining indefinitely. System repair ran the following time and could not fix the problem, but it still would not boot. I retried System Repair probably five times after that. I managed to boot in Safe Mode, but it still wouldn't boot normally. I then did two System Restores, neither worked. I turned off the machine and gave up for a while, tried it half an hour or so later and it worked, it's been fine since until this evening and the problem has returned.
I believe it might be a driver problem as I've had one or two problems with one a while back, but I thought the problem had gone.
Everything is backed up, I have my Vista CD, but would prefer not to go through the time consuming hassle of reinstalling Vista if it’s something that’s resolvable. I'd also rather not involve Dell as I suspect that'll be a time consuming and frustrating experience.
Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!
