Question about Dell OptiPlex GX150 SFF (GX150BLACK) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Cannot start Windows

Everytime when I turn my computer on, the loading bar on the Dell logo loads completely. After that, a white line on the left-top on the black screen blinks and won't do anything.

Any ideas of how solving this problem?
Thanks.

You can also try to do a repair install using the windows operating system disk, if you really cant login using safe mode.

So, I just recently purchased the Alienware Aurora computer, and everytime I have turned it on, it says Setup is preparing for first use. I have already updated everything for it. This morning when I...


Sounds like there's some corruption in the windows install. Did you purchase this computer new? if so I would call Dell cause it will surely be a warranty issue. If not you will need a Windows 7 install disc. If you have a disc put it in the disc drive and boot to it and do a repair on windows if this doesn't help you will need to completely reinstall windows 7. Hope this helps

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.

Not booting


Would you be able to get the Windows loading bar before it goes to a dark screen if yes we could reinstall the Windows wherein you would lose information on your computer and to do the reinstallation all that you would need to do is start tapping on Alt+F10 as soon as you turn on your computer untill we find Windows loading files on the screen and then you would get the Acer recovery management Windows from where you need to select completely restore system to factory defaults and then keep following the instructions on the screen clicking on a few next ok or yes buttons and it would complete the process in 30-45 minutes time;if you are unable to get the Windows loading bar or the Acer logo then you would haveto conatc technical support and set up a repair for a video card issue.

When you first start your computer how do get it to read the disc first?


You go into Boot Menu, and set the - first boot device to CDROM.
The computer will then read what is in the optical drive, first.

Computer off, press the Power On button. Watch closely for the blue dell logo.
Looking at the bottom of the monitor screen when the blue Dell logo comes up, you will see - F2 = Setup.
At the top right of the screen you will see F12 = Boot Menu.

This screen goes by F-A-S-T!
As SOON as you see the blue Dell logo press the F12 key.

If you miss this small window of opportunity, just wait for Windows to fully load, then click on Start, Turn Off Computer, and Restart.

If Windows is not loading, then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME. (Not shouting)
This will restart your computer so you can try again.

Upon entering Boot Menu you cannot use your mouse anymore, you have to use the keyboard.

The Boot Device Menu has the devices listed, and each device has a number next to it.

At the bottom of the menu, type the number that is next to CDROM, then press the Enter key.

This is Dell Support, and the main page for the Dell Dimension 4700 Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/index.htm

Left-click on - Entering System Setup

Should you have any questions concerning this, simply state so in a Comment.

First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.

5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

How do I restore my dell inspiron 2650 to factory defaults?


If your system is PC Restore Equipped, it will show show a black page with a blue bar across the top after the Dell Splash Screen. the bar will have www.dell.com in White letters. If you see this page for about a second during the boot process, the system is PC Restore Equipped. At the page with the blue bar, press CTRL+F11 and that will initiate the restore process. Providing the image is not damaged, then restore process takes about 20 to 30 minutes and will return the system to out of box configuration. If there are any errors or if the PC Restore page is not available, then you'll have to do a clean install of Windows using the Dell Windows XP CD that came with the system, then load drivers and applications.
