You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Get a motherboard manual from Dell.com.
Look for jumper 1.
remove jumper 1.
Power on.
Wait till PC powered on then power off.
Replace jumper.
this will reset ALL BIOS setting including password.
Please let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: trying to restore dell 4400 and cannot get to a dell screen for f-12

If you boot from the XP CD and choose the first repair option it will load to a DOS prompt. From there type "chkdsk /r" and press enter. This will run checkdisk on your hard drive and repair any problems that it finds. It will take 45 minutes or more depending on the size of your drive. Once it finishes type exit to reboot and remove the CD. Your computer should boot normally.

SOURCE: dell dimension e510 won't turn on

Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.

Your "friend' probably put a BIOS password on your computer. Find and disconnect or remove your BIOS battery on the mother board. You may be able to slip a business card under the contact on the top effectively removing the power from the BIOS. Let it stay disconnected for 5 minutes. Reinstall and reboot.

If this doesn't fix it, you will probably have to get professional help at your computer dealer or repair shop.

Lesson learned: Don't lend your computer or your spouse to your friend.

Ialmrnt5 video driver error


When you first boot up the computer press F5 continously until a boot menu shows up. Then choose "start windows in low-res mode". This option will start windows in the lowest resoloution and hopefully it will boot up and you can change the resoloution. If this does not work you can retry the "safe-mode" selection. If that does not work you may have a problem with the on-board video or video card.

Dell Dimension Startup


try going into your BIOS and changing the boot sequence, it may be set to boot from floppy instead of harddrive. or you could just reinstall windows, but that sucks cuz then you lose all your data and programs. and not to be rude, but you shouldnt have bought a dell, they are full of problems.
