Check to see if there are any keys stuck/depressed.

If so, use a paperclip and fit it underneath the key and gently pry the end that is stuck.


Make sure the laptop is off before attempting this.

Observe where the boot process ends and starts over.


In most cases, this will give an indication where the problem occurs.

If the laptop reboots early on in the process, for example when it is detecting the hard drive, chances are good it is a hardware issue.


If the reboot occurs further along in the process, like when it is loading operating system files, there may be an issue with operating system software.



Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty


Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty.


even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly.


Motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working



Check your computer ram modules for secure dust free seating you might even remove the ram modules to check for dirt on modules and in the module socket and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


If your computer runs long enough scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager


applications you will see whats running

if you see anything you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific


program if you or computer does not require it to run and

some unnecessary programs that could be running your computer over its limits causing memory dumps


also under processes see what is ticking over in the background you might have a virus again if you see something you

dont need to be and users you will see who is using your computer

You might need to add more computer ram

if you're not sure if a module is right for your system use the


Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line


from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility of the ram before making any purchase



Might be getting hot

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

Xp booting loop bios


Seems to be a bad driver or damaged boot.
If the computer shuts down and restarts check CPU fan and blow dust out from heat sink, CPU may be overheating.
Otherwise, use the recovery disk to repair, or the installation CD and do the system repair. Or from repair disk, if your computer worked fine before, Restore To a Previous setting.

When i start my laptop it shows the dell loading screen then goes to a black screen where you can start windows normaly or go into safe mode. when you click on start windows normaly it goes to the windows...


You may need to reload windows on the hard drive. However try this first: reboot the system. Tap F8 to get to the system menu. Go to Safe mode and see if windows will load from there. If it does- try System restore to a point before the looping issue started. If it still loops, tap F12 at the Dell screen, and select the image to restore the system (reload to factory default). If you do not have that option, you will need the install media that came with your Laptop to reinstall the operating system entirely. If you do not have the drivers disk for your system- you will need to go to Support.Dell.com, enter in the service tag of your system, and download the drivers for your system.

Good luck! Also, as a reminder: Use your burner or an external hard-drive to backup your college work. Nothing makes you hate life more than having to retype a 20page paper from your edited rough draft and outline due to a system crash or virus! (personal experience. History paper.)

My pc will not load windows and I only get blue screen and dell home page. Computer will not repair as it keeps looping back to same page. I tried booting from install disk with same result.


When you say you tried booting from the install disk, what do you mean?
Do you ever see anything but the Dell image?
When you try to start up, press f12 for boot options and choose the diagnostics option and run it.

Starting up loop that never ends.


Try booting in safe mode (F8 just before the Windows screen) and do a virus check.
