Attempt to start in SD Bootloader mode by Pressing Wireless + Power + Reset.

Does the Bootloader mode work? are you able to enter to it?

    the bootloader wont solve the problem alone, just need to know if it works, if the bootloader works we may be able to reload the software to it. so when you press W+P+Reset what do you see on the screen? I think you are supposed to let go from reset first.

    My time is currently limited and I can't provide you with step by step instructions.

    Try following this page

    download the rom for 2003 se, its on the page, follow the instructions on how to enter bootloader with your sdcard and reload the software from the sdcard.

    I will get back to you soon.

    Ok, in that case you will have to send the pda to repair, the mainboard may need to be replaced or the memory. Its all build into the same board and can't easyly be replaced.

Try to replace the ROM. Also, try adding a new hard drive. See what happens.

Dell Inspiron 1440 notebook cannot start.

I have seen these symptoms before when the hard disk drive has failed. It will hand on the POST screen (The part with the DELL logo) for slightly longer than usual due to fault with the drive, after that it will attempt to boot and error from the hard disk so quickly you see nothing but the laptop appear to cut out. Although the hard disk is the most likely thing to be at fault these issues could potentially be caused by any one of the parts within you laptop being broken.

If you are fairly tech savvy try downloading this utility "Seatools" burn it to a bootable CD. Put the bootable CD in you DELL laptop and boot off it, by pressing F12 and selecting to boot from CD/DVD drive. Then run a "Long test" once this test is complete the software will advise you whether the hard disk is faulty or not.

If you are not confident in trying this I would recommend taking the laptop to be diagnosed by your local computer repair business.

Dell logo won't go away.

If you are lucky a hard power reset will fix this. Disconnect all the cables, hold the power button on for 10 seconds, release the power button, reconnect the cables and turn it back on. Otherwise you may have a hardware problem.

Perform a Reset

Soft Reset
When you perform a soft reset, the device deletes any data that has not
been saved but saves any data that has been stored in memory. Try
performing a soft reset if the device does not respond when you tap the
display or press a button.
To perform a soft reset, use the stylus to press the reset button.

Hard Reset
NOTICE: When you perform a hard reset, you lose all the data stored on
your device.

Perform a hard reset if:
• You want to delete all the data stored on your device.
• You forget your password and need to clear it.
• Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have
already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you
perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for more
To perform a hard reset:
1 Press and hold the power button.
2 With the stylus, hold the reset button for about 2 seconds.
3 Follow the instructions on the screen.
