Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron laptop boot up freezes

My Dell Inspiron laptop boots up normally until it reaches the Windows Vista 'welcome' screen - but it goes no further - the activity circle just spins but nothing further happens. The next screen (the desktop) does not appear. Turning off and on using the main switch (about 3 times usually) clears the problem and the laptop works normally. After use, I shut down in the correct manner, but next time I switch on the problem occurs again. The battery is almost depleted (although I never use it) - could this be a factor?

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

Hi I am able to put my password in and the my computer freezes on the welcome screen I have an inspiron 1545(dell) with window 7


If you have a Windows 7 disk, then you can boot from that and do a "startup repair". It is able to repair a lot of issues with no trouble.

Why does my dell inspiron 1501 freeze on the welcome screen?


Hi,

Try to go to Safe Mode by reseting the computer then tapping F8. If your able to acces safe mode follow these instructions:

1. Go to start then click on RUN
2. Type msconfig
3. go to services tab, click hide microsoft services then click disable all
4. reboot the computer and see it it will go to normal mode. It you will be able to boot to normal mode it only means that one of the isntalled software is preventing windows to load
5. if still cant boot you neet to reformat the system


Thanks for using Fixya.

The dell logo flashes then the screen goes blank. The hard drive keep flashing like the laptop is booting up okay it is a xps m140 and has vista home as a o/s


After the logo flashes, press F8, repeatedly, until a white-over-black "boot menu" is displayed. Choose "Safe Mode", to see if this "minimal" version of Windows will startup successfully.

Screen goes blank soon after switching on


Try "Safe Mode" (holding F8 key on boot and selecting "Save Mode"), then run diagnostics and an up to date (virus definitions) Anti-Virus full scan.
If Safe Mode is not accessible then you may want to consider a format and clean install by booting to your Windows (?) CD.
