SOURCE: my dell dimension 8400 bios a03 fails to bootup

You need to reset your bios settings. Open your case and remove the cmos battery for 10 minutes. Caution: unplug all ac plugs before you open your case. put the battery back in and turn it on you should see an error message saying: you need to set system time and date. If you see this then you have successfully reset your bios settings and the defaults should load up. follow the instructions to change your time and date settings and save. reboot and hopefully you can boot up. I hope this works.

SOURCE: [Ithr]checkpoint failure dell 8400 dimension

What can cause this error?

Well, this is the problem since quite a variety of problems can trigger the error.

1: the bios can be malfunctioning (a bios reset or flash can give a solution)
2: the cpu can be malfunctioning (this requires a new cpu)
3: the cpu socket can be failing (this requires a new mb)
4: the problem can be with bad usb sockets
5: even a bad uplink to a usb hub can cause this error to appear.
Did you change your monitor lately? I would chase down the USB things first...that and the monitor seem to trip the trigger...
Hope this get you started- I think you were right on target with the flash of the BIOS-try it again using the BIOS flash downloaded from the dell site...and to run the chipset again...it just might
Good luck my friend, hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you kindly

Computer does not boot up. Keeps on coming to the same screen that say - Alert! Previous attempts at booting this system have failed at check point (Vcls). For help in resolving this problem, please...


Hello - Did you recently add or change the RAM? The error your receiving is saying there is a RAM hardware problem.
Unless you have experience with working inside the machine (adding or removing components like ram) it probably will save you aggravation in the long run to get on the phone with Dell support.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

Alright i have a dell dimension E510 and i have no floppy disk. and it is saying that i have a floppy diskette seek failure . then at the bottom it also says alert! previous attempts at booting this system...


You will need to go into setup when you boot the computer and in that menu scroll down to the floppy disk and disable it. That should solve it. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_c708739f53a84b7887b9dbecd89fa685(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_2800a0bea82c4f8db0c9352dc6041606(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Alert! previous attempts at booting this system have failed at checkpoint [WRIT.] -- Optiplex GX270 Dell Computer


I'm not sure right off hand what the WRIT means. But other articles online seem to think that you should hit F2 at boot and check the Boot Order. One guy set it to CD and booted a CD (a bootable one) fine. I would make sure it set to the first Hard Drive. He also said something about: went to the "event log" section and cleared the last event (actually the only one showing). I saved the settings, then booted up again and this time it booted up normally.

* Anyway new hardware external or internal would be 1st suspect in this kind of thing. One person had problems after adding a new printer that had a memory card in it. Apparently the Dell tried to boot from the memory card.

"Alert previous attempt at booting the system has failed at checkpoint emem {EMem}."
This is a No Post issue and if youre going to check the quadpack it will show yygg which indicates memory failure.
Quick Step : Reseat memory
If cust has more than 1 memory, test each memory on each slots until you find the memory that’s causing the error message and send a replacement for the faulty memory.
