My Dell laptop stopped working and continually tries to restart. I've started the "Formatting" process
It says Setup is formatting and the percentage that is complete. After 1 h our. Nothing has happened and percentage is still 0%
How big is your HDD ?
There are other options to inhibit the auto restart in safe mode, for example.
It will allow you to view the stop code on the BSOD screen and research it.
You could have also booted from the windows Cd and repaired the OS.
