check the hard disk to be powered and the plugs to be on ...and try again ...Go to bios settings by pressing del on start ..or the F key suggested on the screen on boot..In here locate the optimal factory defaults and engage them ..confirm and after that save the settings by pressing the F10 key and confim This will make all devices to be set to the factory defaults..After that if it still does the same it means the windows installed on it ..is corrupted..or the hdd with the operation system is corrupted and the windows files can not be read so the boot can not continue...First try to insert a boot-able cd ..with the operation system on it ..and try to reinstall it ..Format drive C during the installation in ntfs quick mode..This will eliminate all bugs and strange things ..If the installation goes well ..it means the hdd is ok ..and will work ,, remember you will need all drivers for it and need to install them in order to function proper..so , the thing to be done is to get to the manufacturer support site and download them by model and operation system before beginning the operation ..cause once the installing being done ..you can not connect to the net without the LAN driver.... If the installing can not be done ..and during installation you are informed that the hdd is inexistent or ..corrupted...than you will have to change it .. Cause it seam to stop the boot on the video card information it will be a good start to check the video card too ..specially if it isnt an on board one ..but a pci ..It may be damaged and this to be the reason for not booting right ..
Hello, What you need to do my friend is remove the CMOS battery, then remove the power cord from the computer. Press the power button on the front of the pc, you might at this point see a temporary flash of the power LED (at this point the cmos /bios is now cleared and reloaded with the defaults. Next, put the battery back in and then the power and boot to the bios. Just reload all settings as needed and you should be back in business!!!
With the system off, open the side cover and re-seat the RAM. You may have one module that is bad. Second, press F2 as soon as you see the Dell screen and see if you can get into the BIOS setup. Post back with the results please. Good luck!
