If you made a backup disc use that disc and run the repair files options when you boot up your computer. Sound like one of the files got corrupted on hard drive.

Previous attempts at booting this system have failed at checkpoint [RBUs].


One solution would be to get a Windows Commander disk and try that. This disk contains an entire operating system ON the disk. That way as long as the cd drive works it can load the operating system and then it gives you options to look for the problem.

Also, how old is the system battery, the coin sized battery inside the computer. People never change these and they can cause all sorts of problems. These batteries usually last around 4 years, sometimes 5. If your system is older than that, replace the battery (about $3.00) first.

Alert! previous attempts at booting this system have failed at checkpoint [WRIT.] -- Optiplex GX270 Dell Computer


I'm not sure right off hand what the WRIT means. But other articles online seem to think that you should hit F2 at boot and check the Boot Order. One guy set it to CD and booted a CD (a bootable one) fine. I would make sure it set to the first Hard Drive. He also said something about: went to the "event log" section and cleared the last event (actually the only one showing). I saved the settings, then booted up again and this time it booted up normally.

* Anyway new hardware external or internal would be 1st suspect in this kind of thing. One person had problems after adding a new printer that had a memory card in it. Apparently the Dell tried to boot from the memory card.

My dell optiplex gx200 bios can't boot


maybe try taking out the cmos battery located in your case, looks like a small watch battery, that will clear bios settings and start from scratch, if there is no battery then there is a jumper sequence to do this

"Alert previous attempt at booting the system has failed at checkpoint emem {EMem}."
This is a No Post issue and if youre going to check the quadpack it will show yygg which indicates memory failure.
Quick Step : Reseat memory
If cust has more than 1 memory, test each memory on each slots until you find the memory that’s causing the error message and send a replacement for the faulty memory.
