Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
IF the computer never even shows the Bios screen, this problem is in the laptop hardware or firmware. Check with Dell for a firmware upgrade, and if you cannot get the laptop to boot to install it, remove the battery, unplug from power and let the laptop set for 60 seconds before reinstalling the battery or connecting it back to power, then try to boot. IF that fails, try booting to a bootable CD (Like your install CD), or try entering the BIOS setup. If you cannot get to BIOS, it is definitely a hardware problem. If you cannot get any of the above to work, remove the first stick of ram and move the second stick into it's place. Leave the first stick out of the computer, and try to reboot. If it works fine without the removed stick of ram, then reinsert it as the second and run a memory test against the ream. Some computer stores will also test ram for free, always call before you drive, Grin. Good luck.
