SOURCE: Dell Latitude D800 Boot Problem
Did the diagnostics pass the RAM and the hard drive.
You should check the BIOS settings to see if the hard disk is detected, if possible reset the BIOS back to the default settings and see if the computer boots up.
If not :-
Then it appears that the operating system is either corrupted or system files were deleted or infected with viruses.
Your only option is to do a operating system repair or a complete new install of Windows.
I recommend you do a new install.

Dell laptops normally have a 3-way toggle for the display destination: 1=screen 2= external display and 3=Both. To toggle from one mode to the next press hold the 'FN' key (lower left corner of the Key board), and the briefly press the 'F8' key. Wait a few seconds for the hardware to catch up and you should see a display through the projector. If not, repeat the 'Fn' + 'F8' combo again.
You could also try running diagnostics to verify that teh video card is working properly. To do that, sthar with the laptop off. Hold the 'Fn' key down while you press the power button. Release both as the machine begins to boot up. It should start in diagnostics mode. Run the quick test and watch for the color bars. If you see then, the video card so=huold be OK.
Good luck, And please let me know how it turns out for you.

Testimonial: "Thank you! Actually the Fn - F8 trick had been tried but we were too impatient. Will keep the diagnostic mode info for future use."
If you have forgotten your BIOS or Hard Drive Password for this model, there is a master code that you can obtain from Dell Support. Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from http://support.dell.com and give them your Service Tag, and they can help you out from there. If it is a Windows profile password you have forgotton, try accessing the Administrator account from Safe Mode (Press F8 at startup), and remove the password for the user account from Control Panel, User Accounts.
