I'm have trouble fully booting on my dell inspiron 6000. Recently, the battery ran out and the computer, obviously died. However, when I went to start it again, it wouldn't fully boot. Basically it starts up gives me the dell booting screen with the BIOS wording on the bottom, finishes and goes black. I've run a system diagnosises by pressing the F2 key as well as the F12. I've alos tried pressing the F8 to start in safe mode. The F8 key thing failed, but I'm able to run the F2 and F12 for the diagnostics and everything seems to be alright. So, Where do I go from here?

Boot to the XP CD, Enter recovery console by pressing "R" at the 1st prompt, run the command CHKDSK /P and see if the system will boot normally after the command finishes running. If nothing changes, then the hard drive will need replacement
Power off the laptop.
Power it on and tap F2 at the Dell logo. check if the screen is sidways in the BIOS or not. If it looks normal in the BIOS restart the computer and go to control panel and uninstall the Video drivers. Restart the computer. It will boot up with basic drivers. Install the video drivers and the issue should be fixed.
If the display is side ways even in the BIOS try a BIOS update from support.dell.com and if you dont have an update reflash the BIOS with teh version availbale on the website.
You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
