Trying to start Dell Precision T7400 that won't start but works?

The Dell Precision T7400 only goes pass the opening page. The last place it goes to is "Searching for devices". Last words on the page is "Dell Inc. MPT BOOT ROM SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED". This became a problem after I factory re-installed. Do I need to load some sort of fixer disk or what?

SOURCE: Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530

Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

SOURCE: Dell Optiplex GX50 won't load windows OS

Which cdrom is it? Is it a windows XP cd? This is an older PC? Does it have a floppy disk drive? Try downloading from Barts a bootable floppy disk, set boot order to floppy in BIOS, change to cdrom drive letter after booting to floppy (D:?)
got to I386 folder and set up from there.
More info would be helpful.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize DVD-ROM drive as Boot Device.

Enter the Bios and under System Components find the Boot priority in the Bios and move the drive to the top of the list, also you can press F12 at Start up to select it as well. :)

DELL PRECISION T7400 Blue screen apears multiprocerssor configuration not supported

Since the Precision T7400 has 2 CPU sockets, then assuming there are no "beep code errors" and all the diagnostic lights go off and the power light is green then you probably need to go into the BIOS (press "F2" when the Dell logo comes on during start up) and find the setting that enables multiprocessor support and ensure that multiprocessor support is enabled. If it isn't change the setting so that it is, save the changes and reboot. If it is then it sounds as if one of the CPUs is not functioning properly. Please note that for multiple processors to work, they must be exactly the same.

Precision T7400 power supply sounding an alarm

Did you open the case on your computer? It may have an open case alarm which is a small switch typically located near the edge of the cover you removed. Make sure the case cover is completely installed, then see if the alarm goes off.

Can a recovery set up H/drive from T 5500 be run on a t7400. would like to just change them over instaed of all data transfer. cheers

you can try it but due to the large difference in Chipsets and system configurations it will most likely blue screen on boot if it boots at all
I would expect you can migrate data but the windows and driver installs will need to be done from scratch

Nvmini.sys file error screen went blue showing error like non paged sysytem fault.

I sounds like nvmini.sys is a virus or rootkit from what I have just read.

It seems like it is quite tricky to remove. Try searching google for nvmini.sys removal.

If you are not particularly technical, you may be better off paying someone to clean it off for you.

Hope this helps.
