Question about Dell Inspiron 1720 PC Notebook
When I try to turn on my laptop it immediately pops up a black screen with a white _ in the upper left hand corner of the screen that repeatedly blinks. It did this with nothing in the cd drive. I tried putting in my OS disk but it still would not go past this screen.
It's a Dell Inspiron 1720. It used to start up with a Dell screen and then into Windows, but I see neither now. I need to figure this out so I can complete my project. Please help.
First try holding down the insert key while booting. Next either your F1 or F2 key will get you into bios.
Try pressing those keys alternately while booting to enter setup. If you get to bios follow the previous poster's advice.
Try re seating the ram boards and the hard drive. Make sure you don't have any usb flash drives installed.
