Hi. My computer doesn't start up normally. when i try to boot it, the first thing that appears is the computer brand. There are multiple options in that screen. When you press the delete key, you can enter the settings, when you press the tab key. you display the bios post message.
when i try both. after 30 seconds. a message appears saying auto detecting pri -slave.
then after that, the computer hangs. Everytime I turn on my computer. It always happens.

The video doesn't show what you describe. The video shows that Windows is loading. Try booting in safe mode. Here's how:
Power up the machine. When the Dell logo appears, start tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears amd choose "Windows Safe Mode." Once windows starts, backup your data just in case. Then try to determine what it was you did last that may have caused the problem. Then try to start normally.
I've almost the same problem. When the system turns on the monitor doesn't sync. After a variable trials with down/up the sync is enabled and the computer starts.A very clear event occurs : when the monitor can''t sync ( and system doesn't boot)you can hear very clear a high fan rotation. When I look/hear in the system the Isuspect the cpu fan. The system boots ( monitor syncs) when the fan rotationgoes from high to low. So the system hangs on an internal check on the rotation speed of the cpu fan.I've googled a lot , but until now doesn't find an answer . Possibilties which I think about : replace cpu fan , clean cpu fun ( but it looks clean).I cannot measure the fan rotation speed when the system is hanging. At normal rotation all info can retrieved witth the program cpu-z.Did you already have a solution ?
Usually this error occurs because there are some files missing from your operating system's directories. I would suggest using a Windows 7 DVD that has the operating system on it. You can put that in the CD drive and then the repair option should work. If you don't have a Windows 7 DVD, you may have to buy one. If there is important data on your hard drive, avoid reformatting it. If you're ever asked to format, say no. The following link is the cheapest Windows 7 DVD I could find, but you may want to shop around.

Start the computer in safe mode and then reinstall from the disk, also you could use press either f2 to change the order of boot from the hardrive to the disk,or F8 or F12 depending on the computer to boot from a selective drive, goodluck, viruses are nasty things.
Hi, there is a possibility its trying to boot from a disc in the cd drive,
if theres a disc in the drive remove it and try booting again as this
can sometimes affect boot up, if this desn't work try repeatidly pressing F8 as the the laptop boots, a menu should appear with a few options on, using the arrow keys select boot using last know good configuration press enter and see if that fixes things, if not do the same again but his time select safe mode only, you might get lots of large icons etc but thats normal, then from your start menu/all programs select your virus program and do a virus scan on your hardrive.
If this doesn't work and all other avenues have been tried you could try a system restore using the F8 method
Boot your computer in Safe Mode by holding down the F8 key during boot-up, and selecting Safe Mode from the list when it appears. Once you're in Safe Mode, click Start, then Run, and type "msconfig" (without the quote marks) in the box. You'll get a screen with various options. Choose the Startup Programs tab and clear all the checkboxes on the list, then restart your computer normally. If the problem disappears, it means some program is trying to start automatically and causing your system to hang. To determine which program that is, re-enable your startup programs one by one, by going back into msconfig and checking its box, then rebooting. When your system hangs again on boot-up, you'll have figured out which software is the culprit. Uninstall it using its own uninstall routine or by going into Control Panel, Add & Remove Programs.
