You need to enter setup by tapping one of the f keys or the delete key. i'm not sure which it is for this model. when you enter the bios setup change the boot order to boot to the dvd first. hit f10 and save the change then reboot with your install disk in the drive. it should start installing.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop. I left it running overnight and when I checked in the morning the screen was moving up and down. I tried playing videos in full screen and it does, too. It seems as...


boot in the safe mode, see if issue still occurs (F8 at boot) if it does, then likely there is a problem with the Video Card or the LCD itself, I'm leaning toward the video card.
Try flashing the bios to current and installing the most current video driver, see if anything changes.

My Dell inspiron got wet. I opened it and dried it completly. Now when I turn it on all I get are blue 9, A and arrow down lites for about 1 min and then it shuts down. there appears to be no water damage...


The video adapter is damaged, the motherboard will most likely need to be replaced because of this as the video is integrated. Get in touch with a computer technician.

Black Screen


Sounds like your graphics adapter isn't working correctly or there's a problem with something in Windows (I'm assuming you're running Windows XP). If so, restart your computer and hit F8 until you get a menu. Select Safe Mode and see if it boots up correctly. If it does, note any error messages you may receive and then shut it down. After shutting it down, let it start up on it's own and see if you get your picture back.

Inspiron 1420 is not booting to windows


Hi,
Re-boot, Keep tapping F8 until you get to a black screen, last known good is there, choose this, leave it to run,

or try again re-boot, choosing safe mode this time, if/when it boots, then a system restore in safe mode, go back in time.

If still no good, Your O/S disc is now needed,
boot with disc, go for a repair of the install,
Let it run it's course,
re-boot.

Regards.
