F12 gets you one-time boot options, F2 gets you into setup. If you get an operating system error booting to the hard drive then try changing first boot to the CD/DVD using your Windows disk. What you do then depends on whether there are files you really need to save or if you want to reinstall the operating system. You are welcome to ask again if you need more help. ~Steve

Try booting from your OS (operating system software) CD,i.e. Windows XP, Vista or 7. If that works then you will need to to reload OS.

"error loading operating system" message on dell inspiron 1420 laptop


only way to bypass this is use a recovery disk to boot from and then perhaps the issue will manifest itself

otherwise, it's the dreaded re format step

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

How do I access the screen that shows BIOS options as I wish to upload UBUNTU 11.04 from a pendrive, so I want to make my first and possibly second BIOS options to be for the pendrive.


At boot time repeatedly pressing either, F2 , F12, or possibly Fn+F1 this is depending upon the bios wether it has been updated or upgraded. One of these should do the trick.....

My dell inspiron cannot boot. On startup dell logo screen appears with only f2 and f12 options then my screen goes black with a flashing dash in top left corner. I cant access safe mode, i cant do anything...


Hello,
The Operating System in your hard disk gone corrupt, you need new installation of Operating System using boot from CD/DVD.
P.S. Formating of Harddisk is recommended, because it seems the act of virus infection
Good Luck

Latitude 500 won't boot up - the Dell windows fills and then screen goes blank. I tried to hopld down F2 and F12 when it's doing its few deconds thing but then the screen goes blank and dark.


When you first turn on your laptop hold down the CTRL and as your doing that keep pressing the F11 key. If the hidden partition is still on the hard drive you will be able to restore your laptop back to factory defaults.

If your laptop doesn't go into the restore then you'll need an operating system cd and then go onto support.dell.com and type in your model number so you can get the drivers for your hardware which you will need once you install the OS.

If you can't get the operating system to intstall then at that point the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

BIOS!!!


No boot device available means that there is no Operating System available. F12 is the key that will get you into the Dell BIOS, not F2. Once there change your Boot Order to your HDD first. Good luck!!
