Question about Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Cant get to windows

When I turn the computer on after the Dell screen it goes to the screen that says start windows normally in so many seconds and keep rebooting itself. If I put it in safe mode it will go to windows to the screen that let me click on my personal icon, it starts loading and never stop. So, I can never get to the actual window screen to do anything.

Is it XP or Vista? I would load the recovery cd and attempt a repair( not an install).

Dell latidude d610 wont start properly


Can you select "safe mode" from the boot menu? As much as I hate to recommend it, I think you should wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows (I hope you backed up everything of value on your computer). If you can't successfully reinstall the operating system, then I'd say, in all likelihood, you have a defective hard drive which would need to be replaced.

I have a Dell GX60 and I changed the display resolution and


So, with The computer, completely turned off, Turn it on, Can't you see the BIOS screen? , or a Dell LOGO?

It is when you see this BIOS or Dell logo Screen that you Need to:
  • PRESS F8
  • Press F8
  • Press F8, again, and again right when your computer turns on.
Then You should be brought to the Window that allows you to boot into SAFE MODE, DO NoT PICK SAFE MODE.

Pick: ------------ENABLE VGA (basically safe mode) Only!.

Once booted, log in and change the resolution to let's say 800x600,
then restart your computer normally.

You should then be able run windows normally, (Without F8 Key) where you can then change the resolution to what you want.

IMPORTANT! Remember this, if you set your display to a resolution that it Does Not

support, and the screen goes blank. DO Not Turn off your computer: ALL YOU DO IS PRESS

the (Esc) ESCAPE Key within 15 Seconds and your monitor's resolution will be set to it's

previous state again.

I Hope This Helps.
