my dell was working fine but yesterday i updated the windows xp and tried to restart my pc and recieved the blue screen of death i have been trying for the past day and a half to go into the setup and restore but it wont let me into windows at all i either get the BSOD or it just sticks on a very faded windows screen is there anyone who has had this happen to them and they managed to fix it or am i doomed into buying a new pc.

Have you tried safe mode, tapping F8 during boot up?
