Grey screen at boot up

I posted earlier today with a boot up issue. I out the system in to stand by mode so I could bring system back up, but now I get a gray screen when the system boots. Is this the sign of a failing video card?
System is a Dell Inspiron 9100

Hi!
Try restarting and on the manufacturers screen start tapping f8. You will then go to the advanced options menu. Choose safe mode. if you are able to go into safe mode without errors then do a system restore and restore it to an earlier date before you had this issue. If in safe mode and you are still getting this kind of issue then it would be best to reinstall the whole operating system but make sure to have your documents and other important data backed up.

I can see the bios displayed on my screen


Hi,

If you are able to boot the computer to BIOS, the LCD screen is working normally. Seems that the issue is with the Video Driver or the OS is corrupted. Please try booting to the computer to Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key at the start and check if that helps.

If the computer is able to boot to the Safe Mode, please perform a system restore to an earlier date and check if the issue is resolved.

If the computer is not booting to Safe Mode either, please restart the computer and then press and hold the F10 key to boot the computer to Recovery Partition. From here you can restore the computer back to factory installed settings by perform a system recovery, performing a system recovery will erase all the data in the computer.

Thanks!!!!

I have the same problem D830


Seems to me if it ran normally until powered down that the motherboard would have to be functioning, no? It's a boot or startup problem, but there are all kinds of hardware and software issues that could cause that. Have you tried booting into safe mode or last known good configuration by pressing F8 as it boots up?
Try going to Dell support and enter your service tag # and see if there are any service bulletins or advisories for your laptop, then maybe search the Dell forums for reports of the same. If the motherboard was an issue on your model, you'll find some forum posts about it.
See also Dell support for your boot problem here.
If you get it booted up again, you might like to take a look at the event viewer and device manager and see if there are errors or warnings posted that indicate software or hardware problems on your system. Also consider running the Dell diagnostics utility (see here) to check the system health. And run chkdsk to scan the hard drive for corruption. (instructions here and here)
Malware removal protocols I'd recommend as a check here.
Good general troubleshooting for windows here and startup here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Try booting into SAFE MODE by pressing F8 after you turn on computer and before Windows logo appears. If you are able to start Windows in safe mode, you may be able to ROLL BACK your system to an earlier date. In the START menu search box, type RESTORE. This should bring up the SYSTEM RESTORE menu. Choose the RECOMMENDED RESTORE option first and see if that fixes the problem. If not, go back and select CHOOSE DIFFERENT RESTORE POINT and select an earlier date.

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

jeff
