Question about Computers & Internet
When I turn my computer on it will not load to the main screen, but it will when I go into safe mood
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.
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.
Wait till PC powered on then power off.
this will reset ALL BIOS setting including password.
Please let me know if this helps.

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.

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.
