These steps came from the MSI website itself. link

Restore with reset button
1. First turn the powericon1.png off the router and press the "reset" button.
2. Power on the router and hold the reset button until M1 & M2 LED or Status start flashing.
3. Release the reset button. If the LED flashes eight times that means the reset is done but if theLED lighticon1.png flashes twice you need to repeat the steps.
Reset the router while the power is on.
1. Press and hold the reset button for about 5 seconds M1 should flash 5 times, release the reset button and the restore/reset process is done.

How to flash bios

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector. Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.

Download the appropriate BIOS update and flashing utility for your motherboard from the motherboard manufacturer's website. Most manufacturer websites keep the files under a section labeled "Support." The files will likely come in a ZIP archive, so you will need to extract the files to your desktop. Copy the flashing utility and BIOS file to the DOS boot floppy. If your computer does not have a built-in floppy drive, you will need to connect a USB-type floppy drive first by plugging it into a free USB port. Rename the new BIOS image "newbios.bin" to make remembering it easy. Reboot the computer with the boot floppy in the floppy drive. Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen. Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice. Select safe mode with command prompt When the boot process is done, you will be at the "A:\" prompt. At the "A:\" prompt, run the flashing utility. For example, if the flashing utility is named "awdflash.exe," then you would type in "awdflash" and press "Enter." The flashing utility will likely have a simple graphic menu system with a list of the commands and what they do. Save an image of the existing BIOS to a file called "oldbios.bin." Once the backup is complete, point the flashing utility at the new BIOS image and start the update process. Remove the DOS floppy and reboot the computer when the update is complete.

When i start up the laptop. the screen flashes continouosly for a good 5 minutes

Does it boot up? Are you able to use it after 5 minutes? What does the flashing look like? Is it flashing the boot up posting processes?

Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode and see if it flashes for 5 minutes?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

My curser has frozen

Press your Windows button to get back to your start menu and close it down from there. If it won't close down from there press CTL ALT and DEL all together just the once and it should take you to a different screen that will allow you to shut down or if all else fails hold the power key down until it closes.
Re boot and allow windows to go to protect mode. When the hard drive light has finished flashing, close it down again. Next time you boot it should be fine.
Hope that helps.

D600 laptop boot problem

The D600 is plagued with power up problems for 2 reasons. First the connector on the motherboard to the power button is very sloppy and after awile it breaks contact. If you put pressure under the docking port area and press the power button it may start. The second is the memory slots. I know you said you replaced the memory, but it is the slot that is a problem. Remove the memory and put 1 chip in "A", then press down on the chip while trying to boot the laptop. If this works then get a peice of foam or pad and place it on the chip. When you put the cover back on it will push down on the chip and should boot. Repeat this process for "B".
The green light does signify a charged battery! This is also a possible reason for not booting. Remove the battery and try to boot with only the power supply. A shorted battery will stop the laptop from starting up.
If all of this does not help then remove the battery and the CD Rom, then try to boot. Finaly if nothing helps you should buy a new Laptop or a used one on E Bay. You could get a used D600 on E Bay that has a good motherboard for cheap money and use your drives and LCD. I work on D600 and D800 all the time. Let me know how you make out!

Power is connected and on, but I cannot start my laptop

Hi. This may be stuck in hibernation or standby mode or the system might be stuck in mid shutdown. If the power light is flashing, try holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds until the flashing stops. Now press the power button again, briefly this time and hopefully it will boot. If this does not work, disconnect from the charger, remove the battery (usually an easy task, using a sliding clip underneath the laptop). Then replace the battery and charger and press the power button to start. If neither of these tips work, listen out for beeps from the motherboard. If you hear multiple beeps, then count them let me know how many. This will indicate a hardware problem.

I have a red vertical line on my dell inspiron laptop.How do I remove it?,please

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If themonitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel isdefective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then yourproblem is with either the video card or motherboard located insideyour laptop.

Another answer:

run the PSA diagnostics. to do so, press and holdany non-keyboard button( like the internet hotkey or access directbutton or even the speaker mute button) and then press the power buttonand power up your system. if your inspiron doesn't have a non-kbbutton, then press the <fn> key.
release both the buttons and the diagnostics begin to run.after thediags finish. if the monitor is working fine, it'll simply say"passed". however, if it fails it would emit a few beep codes.carefully check those beep codes:
1.) if you get a 3-3-3 or a 3-3-4 error beeps, then we use the LCDbuilt in self-test (BIST). boot to PSA diagnostics again. Watch thescreen and listen for the color bar test prompt tones emitted by thePSA Diagnostics. Press <N> or wait approximately 30 seconds tofail the color bar test. The system will emit a 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 PSAerror after failing the color bar test. Wait for two iterations of thefailure code then press <Y>.
Watch for the BIST color generation and listen for the single beeps that indicate LCD BIST is running.
NOTE: Patterns of flashing color should appear on the screen. Withevery color change, an audible beep will be heard. If the patterns ofcolor do not appear, and the beeps are audible, an LCD failure may bethe issue. If the patterns of color appear, a video card or motherboardfailure may be the issue.

2.)if you get an error code apart from 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 :Ensure thesystem is powered off. Press and hold the <Fn> key and press thepower button to power the system on. Release both buttons.
The PSA diagnostics sequence begins. Make note of any alert tones or error messages.
error codes:
123- memory fails
141,142,143,144,145,146 hard drive error
147- IDE optical drive fails
148 optical drive built in test fails
122-memory test initialization test failure
111- fatal diagnostics exception.

i really hope you dont get any of these. these will help you determine,if you need to change the LCD. when you call dell, they will run youthrough these steps anyways. so if you finish them beforehand, you wontpay much to talk to them. cheerio then.

Dell latitude D600 problem

The flashing caps lock is an indication of a failed POWER on Self-Test (POST)

Remove the HDD, Battery, AC adapter, RAM and Modem

Press and hold power button for 15 seconds

Connect AC, see if you get any beep codes. If you do, power off, disconnect power, insert RAM, connect AC and reboot. If system boots, power off and add hard drive. If it doesn't, replace the motherboard.

If the system boots with RAM, but fails to boot with HDD, replace HDD 1st.
