Inspiron 530 Dell desktop screen stays black with word DELL across and won't boot up. have F2 = setup F12 = boot menu loading but nothing happening
hello, how long have you waited for something to happen before restarted the system?
in any event, try resetting the BIOS. this is how: unplug the power from pc, wait 10 seconds then open up the side panel of the PC. First thing to do is to make sure you r not carrying any electrostatic charge (sound complicated? well its not) before you touch anything on motherboard in the computer just touch the metal part the casing and you are done.
now, locate the round ( coat button size) battery and gently take the battery out with paper clip, then look around and your will a jumper around that battery area. note the jumper position, if jumper is on first two pins, remove it and put it on last two.
Now plug the power back to PC (yes battery is still out)and press power switch (note PC may power on or may not) then 3 seconds later pull the power cord back out.
now, move the jumper back to its original position and put the battery back in, plug the power back and test computer.
hope fully this would do the trick, and if not, we might have to perform other tests like bad memory chip, BIOS update etc...
Post your results, good luck
