ms office student & teacher bringer of the blue sc

  Anthony Cook 11:54 23 Dec 2005

I've just bought my daughter a laptop and installed ms office student & teacher 2003 on both my pc and her laptop.
now the fun begins my dell dimension 8300 will only give me the big blue screen or safe mode,
so i phone dell ( what a palaver!!!) after having to run all the tests myself, old dell aren't dull are they, pay for extended warranty and you get to fix your own pc after forking out more money for the phone call as well, anyway retsarted in system restore and all is ok, but if i reinstall the software i'm back to square 1!

Any ideas??

yours really fed up with xmas,

I'm not at all sure, but are Dell one of those that have modified the BIOS so that it will only boot to their installation?
