Sounds like you are having a boot issue with the hard drive.

Try booting to your XP CD from the F12 menu and running CHKDSK /F from recovery console

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

When you first start your computer how do get it to read the disc first?


You go into Boot Menu, and set the - first boot device to CDROM.
The computer will then read what is in the optical drive, first.

Computer off, press the Power On button. Watch closely for the blue dell logo.
Looking at the bottom of the monitor screen when the blue Dell logo comes up, you will see - F2 = Setup.
At the top right of the screen you will see F12 = Boot Menu.

This screen goes by F-A-S-T!
As SOON as you see the blue Dell logo press the F12 key.

If you miss this small window of opportunity, just wait for Windows to fully load, then click on Start, Turn Off Computer, and Restart.

If Windows is not loading, then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME. (Not shouting)
This will restart your computer so you can try again.

Upon entering Boot Menu you cannot use your mouse anymore, you have to use the keyboard.

The Boot Device Menu has the devices listed, and each device has a number next to it.

At the bottom of the menu, type the number that is next to CDROM, then press the Enter key.

if you have the windows xp disk, boot from it by pressing F12 upon turning on your computer. press 'R' to choose recovery console. you might be asked which windows installation you want to start, just press 1. when you see the console, enter the command 'fixboot' without the quotes. then type exit to restart your computer. hope it helps.

Cannot reformat Dimensions 4600 I tried F11 but it won't let me restart


If you are going to reinstall the operating system on the dimension 4600, while it is on insert the Operating System CD inside the drive then press and hold the power button to turn off system. When you turn it back on press the F12 Key once on the Dell Logo and that will take you to the Boot Menu. Choose the one that says IDE or Onboard CD / DVD Drive then press enter. If it asks you to press any key to boot to the CD then press enter again. Then just follow the normal prompts for reinstalling the operating system.

My dell dimension 4600 will not boot from cd drive first


Go back to the Dell BIOS screen and change all setting back to the default settings. Put in a Bootable CD and press F12, this will give you boot menu. Then you can boot to any device that you need to.
