If it won't get as far as the BIOS menu the mother board maybe damaged, if it passes the POST but can't boot, try removing the hdd and check for damage.

SOURCE: dell l400 problem

1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.

SOURCE: Error code 2000-0146 in device Hard Drive 1

I just had this same problem a few weeks ago. This error code means you have a bad sector in your hard drive which is cheap and easy to fix. You just need to unscrew the bottom screws holding your hard drive in and place the old cover on the new hard drive you buy. Screw that new one in and reload your programs. Your computer will be as good as knew after that. Look on your invoice to get the hard drive specs so you can buy a new one or just enter your service tag on the dell site and check out the specs of the ones they offer for upgrade.

SOURCE: Will pass bios but then will not load windows

step 1. open up the case and locate your hard drive
step 2. carefully remove the cables and power to the hard drive and remove it
step 3. goto your local office depot, staples, walmart or radio shack and buy a nice new hard drive somewhere around 250 gigs should be plenty for you,
step 4. now that yopu have a nice new hard drive put it in the spot where your old hard drive was in the conputer and plug both cables back into the new hard drive, after this is done put your case back on and start the computer up with your windows cd in the cd rom drive and reinstall windows. :) hope this helps

Dell Inspiron N5030 refuses to boot. When it is turned on, the ON LED light stays on for a minute & goes off. There is no display on the screen. But when it is plugged to A/C, it stays on for a while...


The first thing to check for is loose ram, battery, a loose hard drive or any loose cards.
Pop the cover off the bottom, reseat the ram battery and hard drive and try booting again.

If that does not work try booting off a copy of Puppy linux on a live CD. Puppy runs only in ram and will allow you to bypass a bad hard drive to get a system running. Puppy also has system testing tools that you can check your hard drive with.
