Make sure the HDD jumper is set to master and see whether it helps. If not the HDD is not recognised by the PC. Also make sure the connections between the HDD and mother board. ·Try a different IDE cable ·Try a different HDD an All the best!
That white screen is asking for your bios password. You probably set that the last time you did changes in the bios. If you bought the laptop second hand and the previous owner forgot to give you the password, contact him, or if you can not and/or do not remember the password you set, you have to contact dell, and they can give you a password for it, is no problem for a computer you own. You can chat to them here:
They're gonna ask you for the original owner information before they'llhelp you though. If you don't have the original information (ie youbought it second hand or off someone), you'll have to do a transfer ofownership. You need to give them the service tag and the express servicecode, that are on a sticker somewhere on the computer (bottom in case oflaptops). Enter the info in the required previous owner fields. Enterall your contact info and submit. It should transfer in a few minutes. Here's the link:
Open up the case and remove any add in cards and memory modules. Try to start up by adding these back one at a time until the unit stops booting normally. The light combination is not one recognised in the user manual so I am guessing you have a non-descript fault with one of your components. Be careful when you open the case as to not disturb the ribbon to the motherboard which controls the power, I have had a very long experience trying to get one of these reconnected!
Make sure that you correctly connect the power card & the ribbion from the motherborad on the drive. The motherboard should see the drive automatically from in the BIOS(thats the black screen w/ writings). If not then the cards at the back isn't plugged in correctly.
