Does it power on at all? Do you see anything on screen (DELL/BIOS for example)? Is it in a docking station? Also make sure the power is attached.

Hi!
Try restarting laptop and while starting up try tapping F8 or F12 till you get the advance boot up option. If that wont work. Call the manufacturer of your Laptop. Possible hardware issue.

Re-install windows... Your hard drive may be corrupt. Get the disc for the operating system and try a repair install first, if that does not take, do a full install (you may lose your data but it may be gone anyway). If that doesnt work, than you need a new hard drive. Make sure it starts up to BIOS screen first, it should do this with no hard drive and boot it from a disc using the CD that came with your machine.

Won' start up properly


Hello, you might be having an issue with a Peripheral Device in the computer, conflicting with it to boot up, please disconnect any USB devices, port replicators, or printers/scanner on the serial ports, if this solves the issue and you're able to access your computer, please reinstall the drivers for those devices, you can test each one of them to see wich one is the troublemaker.
Additionally if you don't have any peripherals connected, then please try to boot up in safe mode, to do so, please restart the computer, then when you see the Dell Logo, press the F8 key at start up, then please chose the safe mode option, and press enter. If you are able to enter safe mode, then please press the keys [Windows] + [R] and in the screen that pops up, type "msconfig", without quotes, go to the Startup tap and select, disable all. Afterwars restart the computer and let us know if it worked.

My dell computer with Vista won't restart


Try the Vista startup repair option by pressing F8 before windows loads. If this doesn't work you can attempt to restore the factory image from the same menu (you will loose all data).
