Question about Dell Vostro 1000 Laptop
My Vostro 1000 laptop will not complete boot up to the desktop, it will start booting up, and it will stop, and start the process again, but would not complete the bootup. Please what I can do to get it to bootup complete.
Try going into safe mode. Press F8 when you start the computer and then select "Safe Mode with networking" you should then be able to run a couple of diagnostic programs or a virus checker. You can even do a system restore from there.

See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:
1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.
2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.
3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.
According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).

It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.
