    I actually have about 25 of them all doing the same thing. Heard it could be a SP3 issue. Removed SP3, and they are still having the issue. Formatted the hard drive, reinstalled the OS. Then I get a corrupt hard drive error. I am at my wits end.

This looks like a software or hardware conflict. Try running 'chkdsk' from WinXP setup cd (or Vista's), (after booting, choose option to repair).

If disk check does not help, then you will have to back-up your data manually, format the harddrive, and re-install OS.

    Remove your Dell monitor and use another monitor.

    Also log into BIOS and disable the Boot to USB devices.

My dell inspiron 1454 keeps looping on the boot up screen, then just goes back to the windows has filed to start screen..


Hi Charlotte,

The video doesn't show what you describe. The video shows that Windows is loading. Try booting in safe mode. Here's how:

Power up the machine. When the Dell logo appears, start tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears amd choose "Windows Safe Mode." Once windows starts, backup your data just in case. Then try to determine what it was you did last that may have caused the problem. Then try to start normally.

Hope this helps

It's a dell monitor e2010h and it starts up then runs post op then it goes into a black screen and a cursor


That is the computer problem, try booting in safe mode to see it works OK, if it does, you can try uisng system restore to take it back the known working date before the problem start.

Hit F8 key while booting up if you use XP.

Start the pc with your rescue disc as there is a boot file error. When you get it started, in safe mode, run CHKDSK/F to find the error and attempt to fix it.

Dell Optiplex GX280 restarts suddenly? all files closed and . the restart could be after 2,3 minutes of power on. I don't know why its behaving like this?


Hi, sounds like a crash, do you get any report messages after reboot? Try starting in safe mode; press Del button during initial bootup, once in safe mode you can reset to a time before the problem started. Hope this helps, if not come back to me?

Dell optiplex gx280 keeps rebooting after bluescreen


More than likely it's a software issue.

First thing you should try is booting into Safe Mode

You can do this by powering on the computer and pressing the "F8" key every few seconds.

You should get a list of choices, choose "Safe Mode"

If you can get onto the desktop please visit the Control Panel and check to see if you've got any of the devices listed with a yellow "!" mark.

Let me know what you see / happens so we can narrow down the problem.

Goes On ..Then Goes Black Screen I have 2 GX280s. One failed the other day after 2 years use. The BIOS screen appeared then it all went black. About every 10th attempt to get it going, it works and boots...


have you tried booting in safe mode? When it starts press F8 and select "Safe Mode" or "Last Known Good Configuration.". On that 10th try you do get it to come up make sure you install all updates for your computer. Then you can put int he Optiplex disk from Dell and run some diagnostics.

Tap the F8 key when booting up. This brings you to a screen with different options. Choose Use last known good configuration. this should solve the problem. Your system is stuck in a loop.
