If your System is out of warranty and if you are able to open the Cabinet and knows better about hardware. then follow the instruction.

Otherwise it is better to call at Repair shop or to a Service/Repair Technician.

Open the cabinet and unplug the RAM (memory Slot) put it back after 10 min. See if the system boot up or not.

You can also check the IDE Cable (Ribbon looks like and detach and attach back)

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Dont vote till you find the solution Helpful or FixYa.

Thanks,
SCOTT

I have a Windows 7 dell vostro 3500. And Windows won't turn on. It keeps on starting again every time on its own. It didn't go pass the "start Window Normal"....


1st time-As soon as you start computer keep mashing as fast as you can (not hold down but constant presses) till you get to advanced boot option screen. There are options to choose from.
You will have to use your arrow keys and enter key (no mouse)
First use the safe mode option.(this is in case you are fighting a virus)
turn off repeat the start with f8 key presses till it gives you the advanced boot option screen again. choose last good configuration option. If it lets you it will take a bit of time to restore do not interrupt it while it is fixing its self.
Here is a picture of what the option screen should look like.

Free usb reboot


You might want to boot from a USB device, like an external hard drive or a flash drive, for many different reasons.
When you boot from a USB device, what you're actually doing is running your computer with the operating system that's installed on the USB device. When you start your computer normally, you're running with the operating system installed on your hard drive - Windows, Linux, etc.

How To Boot From a USB Device
Change the BIOS boot order so the USB device option is listed first. The BIOS is rarely setup this way by default.
If the USB boot option is not first in the boot order, your PC will start "normally" (i.e. boot from your hard drive) without even looking at any boot information that might be on your USB device.
Tip: The BIOS on most computers list the USB boot option as USB or Removable Devices but some confusingly list it as a Hard Drive option, so be sure to dig around if you're having trouble finding the right one to choose.
Note: After setting your USB device as the first boot device, your computer will check it for boot information each time your PC starts. Leaving your computer configured this way shouldn't cause problems unless you plan on leaving the bootable USB device attached all the time.
Attach the USB device to your computer via any available USB port.
Note: Creating a bootable flash drive or configuring an external hard drive as bootable is a task in itself. Chances are you made it to my instructions here because you know whatever USB device you have should be bootable after properly configuring BIOS.

  • Restart your computer.
  • Watch for a Press any key to boot from external device... message.
  • On some bootable devices, you may be prompted with a message to press a key before the computer will boot to the flash drive or other USB device.
  • If you do nothing, your computer will check for boot information on the next boot device in the list in BIOS (see Step 1) which will probably be your hard drive.
Note: Most of the time when trying to boot to a USB device there is no key-press prompt. The USB boot process usually starts immediately.

  • Your computer should now boot from the flash drive or USB based external hard drive.

When i turn my dimension 8200 on it will not boot i keep getting the black screen with the safe mode option but no matter option i choose it aslways comes back to the black screen


if you have the windows xp disk, boot from it by pressing F12 upon turning on your computer. press 'R' to choose recovery console. you might be asked which windows installation you want to start, just press 1. when you see the console, enter the command 'fixboot' without the quotes. then type exit to restart your computer. hope it helps.

Laptop wont even attempt to load windows??


With this kind of problem, you must put in the Windows software disk and boot. Then select repair Windows from the list. This option will attempt to correct the problem.
If you do not have the disc, boot into the repair / diagnostic mode from the boot screen. See if there is an option to create boot disks.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Computer will not boot to desktop


1. Unplug the SATA drive and see if you get a desktop then.
2. If so, then go to hardware/device and look for PCI sata card.
3. If it is listed, check the details, copy down and post here.
4. If it is not listed, see if it is listed under computer management/hardware/devices or in the "problem device" or "conflicts" tabs. Post any mention here.
5. While I wait for your reply/you wait for me to catch it, you should also try switching the card to another PCI slot. Sometimes, with new technology added to older boards, the slot ID is important.
