Boot problem with Dell Optiplex GX150

I have a Dell Optiplex GX150 system with 800 Mhz processor, 256 Mb Ram and 20 GB Hdd. I'm running Windows XP Professional. For previous one month i'm experiencing a strange problem. After Dell's flash screen there appears a cursor blinking at the top left side and remains for about 5 minutes after that it eiter boots into windows or enters into bios setup depending on wheter F2 key is pressed at the flash screen or not.
The main problem is that it is not booting from CD-ROM, therefore i'm unable to install a fresh copy of windows. Also the mouse does not work in the windows nor any external modem is recognised by the system. I think that some virus has infected my bios. Plz help me.

To reinstall Xp from the CD you need to press F2 and go into the BIOS then select the boot order configuration and make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
After installing XP, if you wish you can go back into the BIOS and change the boot order to boot from the hard disk first.

There is a chance that you have faulty RAM module. If computer is stable on POST (until Windows boot-up) I would suggest to use some testing tools to test that RAM with your motherboard. There is a good program called MemTest. You can find it online if you search Hirens Boot CD. Download it, burn image to disk, put 1GB RAM into motherboard, start-up PC and boot from CD. Then you'll search for Memtest program. I would suggest to leave PC for at least 6 hours for testing to find out if it's faulty or not (better to leave for 24 hours).

You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep

RAM cuantity


The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.
