Trouble booting past the BIOS Screen

Hello,

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?

    Is that the main power battery? If so I left it out over night, leaving the laptop with zero power source. Everything else is seated properly

    done and done. but no difference.it just tells me that its an invalid configuration and that the time and date is not correct.Then it asks to chose f1 to continue and f2 to enter setup. I've done it both ways and no change. still black screen. Its almost like its frozen at that stage. The computer is running as normal

    The main battery as well as the cmos battery it is usually a small round (flat) battery that is on the motherboard of the laptop itself. Remove this battery for 20 minutes then install and install big battery then turn machine on

When running diagnostic for Dell computer was given error code OF00:1A44. I ran the diagnostic becasue I was unable to get past the blue screen in Windows - error there is Unmountable_boot_volume.


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

Screen on Dell Inspiron 6000 turned sideways. How


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.

Dell Inspiron 6000: No Boot Up after BIOS loads


You can download a small program called memtest 86 which is an ISO for creating a bootable cd that will test the ram. You can get it from: http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

Also the HD may be the problem even if the BIOS can see it. Pull the HD and try booting from the xp disk again.

Hope this helps

Bios post doesn't show at boot up


Try hitting F12 as soon as the computer starts to turn on. This should give you a Boot Selection Menu where you can choose which device to boot from.

To get into the bios, this machine requires you to hit F2 just as it starts to boot.

You do not need to rapidly press it, but do try several times until you get your menu.

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.
