hello, how long have you waited for something to happen before restarted the system?
in any event, try resetting the BIOS. this is how: unplug the power from pc, wait 10 seconds then open up the side panel of the PC. First thing to do is to make sure you r not carrying any electrostatic charge (sound complicated? well its not) before you touch anything on motherboard in the computer just touch the metal part the casing and you are done.
now, locate the round ( coat button size) battery and gently take the battery out with paper clip, then look around and your will a jumper around that battery area. note the jumper position, if jumper is on first two pins, remove it and put it on last two.
Now plug the power back to PC (yes battery is still out)and press power switch (note PC may power on or may not) then 3 seconds later pull the power cord back out.
now, move the jumper back to its original position and put the battery back in, plug the power back and test computer.
hope fully this would do the trick, and if not, we might have to perform other tests like bad memory chip, BIOS update etc...
Post your results, good luck

There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

I am a Dell Certified System Expert and a Dell Advanced Resolution Expert Certified. For this issue, First I recommend to check all the keys on the keyboard, as it might be there are pressed key that can cause keyboard lock up and encounter your issue, also might be try to use a good known working keyboard. If the issue persist I highly recommend to contact Dell Support as this pertains to hardware issue, might need to reseat some hardware in the computer such as memory or hard drive.
