Did you updated your video driver lately? And if you updated it, do you use the DELL driver or the original ATI driver.

Are the hex codes the same each time you boot?

Yes on the hex codes and no on a recent update unless it was part of an automatic update from Windows.

I would uninstall the current video driver and reinstall with the latest driver for your card. If you post the model of the laptop I can find it for you.

Test your memory as well.

Get the UBCD http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Download links are the icons at the top of the page above Overview.  Browse the page and see what utils are there for you.  Check the memory utils especially.

Make the CD and boot from it.  Run the memory tester first - memtest -  and let it do two to three passes through your memory.  Memory could be the problem so get that test done first.

If you're running XP Pro disable the ATI hotkey poller service by running services.msc in the Run box and changing the start up setting.

Looks like you may have installed a driver version that's not compatible with your Mobilty Radeon card on the Dell

I agree with dbrunton regarding testing the memory to be sure.
