Question about Dell Precision Mobile M70 Notebook
I turn it on and it goes through the main screen, then a blinking cursor shows up on the upper left hand screen and doesn't do anything beyond that
If you have a Windows installation CD, you can use the Recovery mode to attempt to fix the problem.
Turn on computer, insert CD into drive.
Press any key to boot from CD
Windows installation process will start
After a few minutes, a screen will come up telling you to hit ENTER to install Windows, or to press R to enter the Recovery Console
You will be asked which operating system
Most times there is only one option, select 1
At command prompt, type "fixboot" and press ENTER, if it asks if you're sure, type "Y" press ENTER again
Then, at command prompt, type "fixmbr" and press ENTER, again, type "Y" and press ENTER if it asks.
Type "exit" and press ENTER to exit recovery console and reboot.
Give that a try and see if it will boot for you.
