Question about Dell Inspiron 2500 Notebook
Windows xp sp2 when powered to boot the xp operating system logo comes on and after it had booted, played the sound then it goes blank. I have pressed the f8 button repeatedly and tried to start it from safe Mode Command Prompt. It said something else was running. Please help.
Go into safe mode and just uninstall your graphic drivers and start again normaly

SOURCE: Will not boot to Safe Mode
Try to boot from the Resource CD by selecting the <F12> key and select boot from CD/DVD drive. If you tried to run the "Diagnostics" option from the <F12> boot menu and it went to command prompt, there might be an issue with your hard drive or the "Diagnostics" partition is corrupted or missing. If all tests pass using the Resource CD, then your OS is probably hosed. As for the 9 LED light, that just indicates that your numeric keypad is enabled.

SOURCE: unmountable boot volume
-this can be a hardware problem or a software problem
-run diagnostics first on the computer
-turn off computer; while the computer is off, press and hold the "Fn" key then press power at the same time to initialize the test
-if you find error message like 0142 - this is a hard drive failure; contact your manufacturer for replacing your hard drive
-if no error is found, it is a corrupted Windows; you need to reinstall Windows, ensure you consult local technician to back-up files before installation.
