Dell laptop error code 0xc000007b?

This morning I opened my laptop to find this. (Image below.) it was absolutely fine last night. I was just watching Netflix and then turned it off and went to sleep. I’d like to try and fix this by myself because it’s a school laptop but I also use it for my personal things, like games. And I have to disable the firewall in order to do that. And if anybody found out I was doing that, I’d probably get my head ripped off. I do not have a CD or USB drive in order to fix it. So answers including those will not be helpful.

    You can't easily fix it yourself, and would probably end up doing more damage. Let the school IT department fix it. They have the equipment to fix it, they probably get this sort of thing all the time

    Take the battery out if you can and disconnect the power and then try to restart it if the computer boots up normally fine if not you just said it's a school computer don't be tampering with the school's computer. and to learn how to make yourself a Linux live USB stick so that you can do your surfing and private things from a live USB when you remove the live USB there's no record of what you've done.

    It's not your laptop so let the school fix it. To me, getting your head ripped off is better than them asking you to replace the laptop entirely.
