hi, and welcome.

for some reason I can't see your pictures in your post, but I was able to see them by pasting the URLs in my browser.
The first picture report an error: usb_alloc_device: set address 4 failed, (USB_ERR_TIMEOUT, ignored), and another error subsequently.

http://i65.tinypic.com/qybuc2.jpg

You don't say if you are bootng from USB, but I think it is the case, please confirm.

This error, is most likely due to to some timing issue with your USB hw, it should be possible to cure this, but right now I don't remember the exact setting to apply, will look about that sometime later.

After you type exit, the boot resume, and you have a second issue, most likely related to your graphics adapter.
Can you please tell us what is it ? Intel ? nvidia ?

You need to disable in BIOS the nvidia adapter, dual cards aren't supported.

may be it is not possible at all, some notebook/bios/uefi can be configured, some not.

A fast scan on freebsd forum is not very promising, the only thread I have found: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/40187
The last post link an xorg.conf file, but it is also outdated.

It seems it can work by using a specific xorg.conf file (these days X usually just autodetect te configuration), but you will need to revise the linked xorg.conf.

Anyway, it seems you are new to GhostBSD/FreeBSD, therefore I would suggest to install Linux and run GhostBSD in VirtualBox, that's a start.

Ah I forgot, greetings from italy ;)
Thanks for your help.

Wow, double welcome! :)

I have installed Gnu/linux with GhostBSD in Virtualbox,and this is why i want GhostBSD as my own OS.
GhostBSD is stable and solid like a rock and have a very beautiful appearance

Hi Kernelpanic,

you could get an image of TrueOS and see if it manages to boot a live system. TrueOS is based on FreeBSD-CURRENT. If it will boot up that means the development version of FreeBSD already support your hardware. In that case GhostBSD will catch up at some point in time. If even TrueOS will not work... Well, then probably not enough FreeBSD developers use Dell Inspiron laptops... But then you at least know that there's not too much hope in the foreseeable future.

Instead of "startx" what happens when you try "exec startxfce4"?
