    I can't get to the point of the booting process to access F1 or F2.

    do you have the windows cd? and hopefully you have it set in bios already to search cd first and you can do a repair.. make sure all things plugged into the usb are taken off first if it set to read cd first your can do a repair

    Unfortunately, this was a refurbished computer that already came loaded with Windows XP Professional, but without the CD. Do you know if I could get a copy from Microsoft if I gave them the Windows info from the tag on the computer?

    i still think though that its a hard ware issue try booting it up without any usb devices attached

  • Renee Arrosagaray Dec 10, 2012

    I appreciate the link for the XP disc. I have already tried unplugging all USB devices; no change. Someone has suggested on another forum to replace the battery on the motherboard, so I'm going to give that a try. I'll let you know if that resolves the problem.

How do I fix "Optiplex 760 failed at checkpoint [WRIT]" ?


This computer has known issues with the USB hubs which will throw this code. If you used a USB hub for a monitor or such it may have crashed the driver. Have you tried booting without any USB devices connected? If not please try.

If you made a backup disc use that disc and run the repair files options when you boot up your computer. Sound like one of the files got corrupted on hard drive.

Dell 8400. previous attempts at booting this system have failed at Checkpoint [Writ]. Is this a Hardware or Software problem and have you suggestions for a fix to problem.


It is a Hardware error, and my be associated with the following components.
  1. Memory. Try Memory modules individually, see if you can get the system to boot normally with one or more modules, if you ID a defective one, replace it.
  2. Motherboard. It is possible, that if all combinations of the memory produce change that a failure has occurred in the motherboard. A swollen capacitor is a likely failure.
  3. The hard drive has a cache module, it is possible this memory is defective.
  4. The Processor (Least likely as they almost never fail.)
