    Take out the hard drive and see if you can get into the BIOS, if you can get into the BIOS then that means the hard drive is shorting out the motherboard and you would need to replace the hard drive.

Had the same problem. I replaced the hard drive. If that doesn't work then it's the motherboard but I would steer towards the hard drive.

System won't boot up window XP


HI Joe. It's likely you have a virus. Or could be just a corrupted section of the hard drive. The F8 is what gets you to the black screen with the differnt boot options. F2 or Del button gets you in the the BIOS or start up instrutions for the PC. F 12 will get you boot device options. The F12 or F2 needs to be pressed before it ever gets to try starting windows. So when you first power on, immediately start tapping the F12 about once a second. This should bring up a menu of which items/ device, to start from. [If you get a stuck key message just clear it and continue tapping F12 or start over] I would suggest you use the windos CD and choose the CD device to boot from, then it will recognize the CD drive. You could follow the CD start up options to peform a repair of windows. If you do a repair, then you should also perform a virus scan immediately after. If after all that, you still have issues, then it's likely the hard drive itself is bad or going bad and you should look at replaceing it. Good luck.

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

When i press power on; F2 set up and F12 boot options appear and nothing else happens and i dont know what to press next for ti to start up.


Are you trying to reinstall your OS? Or just trying to boot to normal mode?
If the first is your case, you have to choose booting with CD drive in order for your system to boot on your CD Installer.
However, if the second is your case, you don't need to press F2 and F12 after powering on. If you encounter this without your BIOS changed, try reverting it back to BOOT on HARD DRIVE. That is when you are in the BOOT OPTIONS, select HARD DRIVE and press ENTER.

You may want to do a system recovery. Dell computers allow you to do recovery by pressing "Ctrl and F11" upon boot up.

Tap F2, F12, and F8 while booting up. One of them will get you to Bois.

BIOS!!!


No boot device available means that there is no Operating System available. F12 is the key that will get you into the Dell BIOS, not F2. Once there change your Boot Order to your HDD first. Good luck!!
