Sometimes there are settings in the CMOS setup that tell it not to show that screen. So you need to force it to go into setup to change that by pressing either F1,F2,F10, Del or escape key before you see the O/S logo come on the screen and get into setup and make the changes.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Ah this is a nightmare problem.... the only solution I know of to fix this is tiresome to say the least
But you need to delete the partition that Windows is on
and then reboot your computer
Go back to install XP and all should work well -- you may need to remake the partition and format it before Windows recognises the disk - but that is simple enough
If you can not boot into the CD - you will need to change your BIOS settings to boot from CD first
When your computer comes on a screen displays
It will tell you which key to press to get to your BIOS setup / settings page
Look for boot options and make sure the CD is first on the list
That will get things working -- a total drag I know but it is the only way I have found of getting this to work
The BIOS utility probably has a setting for the BIOS to automatically detect and maintain your CPU's clock speed. Make sure that is ON or ENABLED. Another probable reason for the failure may be your RAM settings. Again, use the automatic detection of your memory's speed and latency settings.
One last probable reason may that you may be using different kinds of memory SIMMS or DIMMS. Some boards are very finicky and will not work efficiently with different types, if at all. Others will simply not work.
1. The reason it says "error loading operating system" is because kill disk wiped the operating system from off your computer. 2. Now that you have the installation disk, you need to tell the computer to boot from it. For Dells, usually press F12 when the Dell logo appears, and it should bring up a boot menu. Select the optical drive and it should boot. If you do not see a boot menu, go into your computer's BIOS and tell it to look at the optical drive first when booting, then it will boot from the disk.
It sounds more like the computer isn't starting up. The "no signal" message is coming from the monitor itself to tell you it's on but there's nothing coming in to display. Normally no special drivers are required for the monitor, and you'd see at least the computer maker's splash screen and BIOS messages if the computer was starting up properly.
You'll need to determine what is keeping the computer from starting up. Make sure it's getting AC power and that the power light comes on when you press the front panel power button. You may need a power supply. If the computer comes on but doesn't boot you may have memory problems or trouble with the motherboard. But your monitor is working properly.
Okay you will need to run the OS install disk. DO NOT REINSTALL THE OS!!! Instead enter the repair portion of the disk. When you get into the dos command screen type "fixboot" without the quotations. It will ask you if you wish to continue. Then restart. That will fix your problem. If it doesn't tell me and I will continue troubleshooting.

sir u can go to the bios by tapping the f2 key while turning the system on immediately.... in the bios page the bios version id written. also if the system is not booting up try disconnecting each and every device that is connected with the computer except for the mouse,monitor and keyboard.
