It sounds like it not seeing you hard drive, remove battery and ac power and then make sure everything external is removed and then power it back up, if it doesn't come up my guess would be bad hard drive.
good luck

Reset bios


  • Restart the system. Click on "Start," "Turn off Computer" and "Restart."
  • At the Dell loading screen Tap "F2" to enter the BIOS. "Entering Setup" will appear. Certain models may use a different key. The key will be displayed during the boot process. For most Dell models, the key is "F2."
  • Once loaded, depending on BIOS version and type, you can reset the defaults by using "F9" key to Load Defaults, the "Load defaults" button on screen, or the "Alt" + "F" key combination to load factory defaults.
  • Press "Esc" on your keyboard and select save and exit.
  • Choose the "Enter" key to save all changes and exit the BIOS screen. Allow your system to restart for the BIOS settings to reset.

Nice way of experimenting , but if you want to continue working on your machine without errors, just load the default settings and save them while you exit. Also make sure you have the battery replaced on the motherboard.

Unable to get into BIOS SETUP


hi there,

On most systems, the key or key combination to press to enter the BIOS program is displayed on the screen when the system boots up, at the time when the BIOS is ready to enter Setup.

take a look at some default keys:-
  • {Delete} (modern Award and AMI BIOSes)
  • {F2} (modern Phoenix BIOSes)
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Esc}
  • {Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{S}
  • {Insert}
  • {F1}
