    thank you leecom72

    after I turn on the computer, I see the DELL start up screen with the white bar expanding. The shite bar does not expand completely. This screen also shows in the upper right f2 setup and f12 boot menu. I tried f2 and got to the BIOS setup menu. However I do not know what do do with this menu.

    If I do not press f2, the monitor goes blank, then very briefly shows a blue bar at the top with white letters in the center saying

    any way I could phone you?

    I tried hitting F8, but nothing happened.

    I found the motherboard battery and cmos clear, but no cmos jumper (nothing like a green piece of plastic)

    My mother in laws Dell Dimesnion B110 wont move beyond the blue screen with the white bar. It makse a noise like a fax machine and freezes up . I can choose the F8 and F2 menu but hitting any F key will take me to the regular windows and then the computer works just fine and the noise stops.I have tried to restore the system but it didnt make a difference.

While the pc is booting up hit F8, it should take you to a sub menu, choose "last known good configuration" and hit enter, see what it does.

post back please

    ok the bios isn't loading properly, take the side panel off the pc and look for the motherboard battery, then look for cmos clear.

    as you will see in the photograph the cmos jumper is the green piece of plastic, move its position to the other position and press the on/off button, that will clear the cmos, put the jumper back in is original position and reboot the pc, you may get a message saying checksum error, just press F1 to continue , when you are in windows you will have to correct the time and date

    best of luck

    remove the battery and leave it out for an hour, make sure the mains power supply is removed from the back, place the battery back in after an hour and the cmos should be cleared

Dell b110 runs very slow

I highly suggest you buy a newer computer with windows 7...

I have a dell dimension b110 with Windows XP (i no longer have free tech advice from dell) I have tried evey soultion given to me by microsoft solutions and all the stuff it tells me in my own manual but...

Go to start, then run and type in msconfig then choose the startup tab from the box that appears. Everything that is ticked in here starts when you start windows xp that is why the pc is Sooooooooo slow, all you need running is your AntiVirus software if you have any! so untick everything except the AV software then click apply and then close, it will then ask to restart. Upon restart you will get a message about system configuration just tick box saying don't show this again and click OK. Everything should hopefully now be a whole lot quicker.

Inspiron b110 wont turn on only green flashig

Unplug your computer, wait 30 minutes, plug it back in and try again.

If it still doesn't work, it's got a serious problem. If it isn't under warranty with DELL any longer, take it to a reputable repair facility.

My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image

You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?
