    Here is all that i try: disconnecting and connecting back the cmos(bios)batteries but still have to same problem and the batterie is good i tested it and it has 3.12v. nice try but didn't help. I also try disconnecting and reconnecting hard drive, both modem, cd rom drive. try changing memory chip.

    Also ginko i can't reinstall windows because the bios is not booting all the way there for no cdrom drive for reinstalling. It stop at 6% loading on dell logo screen.

    It is the modem card that is causing the problem. try to get it out of you system. go to support.dell.com and enter the service tag of the computer. you will be able to get the manual in there.

Ok, if the bios is corrupt, the bios needs to be flashed, as you can't do it, you will need to send it for dell repair, as far as I know the bios can't be removed easyly from the motherboard, it would need to be soldered out possibly. Best to let dell handle it.

Posted on Oct 08, 2008

  • Ekse Oct 08, 2008

    or possibly other motherboard problem.

  • Ekse Oct 08, 2008

    I recommend you contact dell again and set up repairs

    I don't think this is fixable at home.

You need to reinstall windows, either using recovery disk, windows install disk, or if present, the built in system recovery tool.

I have a dell laptop. When I turn it on Windows comes up and it stays on the screen that says windows and has the bar that goes from left to right to tell you it's booting. It never stops doing that. I...


Shut the system down by holding the power button for 5 seconds or more. Turn the system back on, as soon as the blue dell logo goes away tap f8 on the keyboard. This should bring you to a menu from which you can select "safe mode". See if it starts in safe mode. If so, troubleshoot further from there. If not press f12 on the dell logo and choose diagnostics. Run a quick scan, see if any errors are returned for the hard drive.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

The dell logo flashes then the screen goes blank. The hard drive keep flashing like the laptop is booting up okay it is a xps m140 and has vista home as a o/s


After the logo flashes, press F8, repeatedly, until a white-over-black "boot menu" is displayed. Choose "Safe Mode", to see if this "minimal" version of Windows will startup successfully.

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

When i start up my dell inspirion 6000 laptop the logo comes up and then screen goes black


When you see the Dell logo, it means the system is booting and you see the splash screen that is generated on the motherboard.
Apparently this is where it is stopping.
Here's what I would do: First when you boot the computer, press F12 to get the boot options. Choose the diagnostics and run the system diagnostics.
You can also try to press F8 to get the computer into safe mode, but I'm thinking if you see nothing other than the splash screen, that may not work. If you are presented with Windows boot options, choose safe mode and do a system restore.
The last thing you can do if you have the Dell system recovery disk is try to do a repair from that CD if it allows you to do so.

Dell Inspiron 1501 won't boot


The initial Dell Screen you see at the begining is your BIOS access. Push F12 repeatedly when you see this screen and it will take you into a system restore mode. It will let you boot from CD first (which your PC is not set up for). You should be able to start the CD fine from there.
