The Dell Dx280 is a P4 2.80 ghz. Processor
If you can boot into the BIOS setup screen without any trouble, your problems may be memory or drive configuration. ( Start from scratch ) Disconnect any external devices.
1. Set all BIOS controls to Default.
2. On your other machine, make a bootable disk (CD).
3. Check your BIOS version against current versions available.
4. Make sure your BIOS will accept the Drive Size and Structure.
5. Find out what version of VISTA you are running... ect. 32bit or 64.
Partition and Format your hard disk using a HD utility, such as Sea tools or Disk manager.
6. Try loading appropriate version of VISTA to drive.
If after Partitioning drive, you are still getting errors, remove or replace memory, one piece at a time.
If your BIOS is corrupt, you may have to Flash the BIOS to Factory specs. first and then again to current versions.
Hope this has helped, if you cant load the simple stuff, the Hard Stuff will never load.
