I got the "failed to Nobulate" error too.
I called Dell and they fixed it--it was a pretty simple fix even though the tech had never heard of the problem before.
Here is what I did
Turned off computer
Turned on computer and started in safe mode by tapping F8 as soon as the blue Dell logo appeared
This started it in safe mode
Then did a System Restore
Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->System Restore
The System Restore did its thing and it works fine again.
Hope this helps
