Its failing to go through the full boot process. Try pressing F8 on boot until the boot option screen comes up and then select safe mode. Follow this though until you are given the option of using system restore instead of safe mode. take that option by clicking on the NO button. Restore the machine to a date some time a few days previous to the fault developing.

If that fails then put in any OS disc and boot from it. select R at the first options screen, follow it through and then select the C drive option. Just hit enter when asked for admin password.

now type chkdsk /r (copy and paste this to be sure). let it run and then reboot and see what happens

My Dell Inspiron 1545 on Windows 7. After a system restore will not start. You switch on, The Dell logo appears, then the screen stays blank except for the cursor arrow which remains and can be moved...


Power drain your computer, remove all the accessories connected on it, including battery and power cord then press the power button for 1 minute.
Connect the power cord then turn on the computer.

This is a possible Operating system corruption and it needs a complete reloading of your operating system or reformat your HDD and install the OS again.

Dell Lattiude D600 cursor locked in middle of screen - even after we turn on and off - no way to do anything because cursor won't move - not even little blue mouse in the middle of the screen


Try booting up after installing an external USB mouse. This may give you a mouse to install new keyboard drivers.
If the problem is the keyboard/tracking pad, (hardware) installing another keyboard may eliminate the issue.

Computer won't boot Windows Vista. Screen goes black with cursor arrow.


In this case you have to do the PC restore . you can do that in dell machines by shutting down the machine and when it is coming back on just HOLD DOWN THE CTRL ket and the START HITTING f11 key in this case you will lose the data which you have the on the c drive but this issue will get resolved .

Else you can try to restart in the safe mode with networking and then go to the system restore and then select the bold dates in which you have idea you system was working fine . selct the date and then do the system restore . In this case you will not lose the data but you will lose the updates which you have done after that date .

in both the cases system will work .
