Dell B130 Laptop Boot Problem

When I boot up I get the dell splash screen and get to about 95% complete then the laptop turns off. I replaced the battery and on the first time booting up everything was fine, it went to XP. When I restarted the problem occurred again. Now I'm back to the Dell screen, 95% complete and it shuts down. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Didn't work. I never get to the Windows screen to to press F8. I'm still at the boot screen and the progress bar goes to about 95% and the laptop turns off. I can't reinstall windows because I never get that far at boot. Any more suggestion?

I have a Dell Vostro 1400. The screen gone black from this morning. Need help urgently as I've to do my assignments in the weekend.

First power the laptop down. To do this, hold down the power button until it shuts off (usually 5 seconds). Wait 5 seconds and turn it back on. Do you see the Dell splash screen? If you do, hopefully the computer will boot into the OS. If you do not see the Dell splash screen, there is something going on w/ the video card or monitor. Hardware issues need to be replaced by Dell. If the laptop is w/in a year, you can call Dell and the should be able to send a part for free. Otherwise, you'll have to send it in for repairs.

Dell laptop will not boot up?

Turn system on by pressing FN and the power button, this should start the system diagnostics. If hard drive diags pass, then new would be boot to the WIndows CD and Run Repair (Vista) or boot to recovery console (XP) once in recovery console, run the command CHKDSK /R
If running Vista repair, you may need to run the repair tool up to 5 times (Each pass makes a partial repair, it make take more than one to complete all issues)

If Diags fail, replace the hard drive.

My dell inspiron b130 boots up but monitor is black

After your laptop boots up into windows, hold down the Fn key and as your doing that press the F8 button that should switch the output from the vga connetor to the LCD screen on the laptop.

If you still don't get video then you'll have to reseat the LCD cable from the back of the LCD screen to where it connects to the motheboard.

If you still don't get video then its either going to be a bad LCD or a bad motherboard.

Dell B130 Laptop

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

This is an indication of a very near to fail hard disk. Might I suggest that while it could still be read even occasionally to try and backup you files immediately to a thumb/flashdrive. Thereafter it is a matter of replacing the hard disk (now's the chance to put in something bigger), partitioning to your preference, formating and installing a fresh copy of the Windows of your choice. Often these laptops do have a recovery CD that may be used to ease the transition.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Dump of Physical Memory

Put the Dell CD in the drive bay. Turn on the computer and start pressing <F12> key. It should say "Preparing one-tome boot" When the screen shows a selection menu for the boot device, use the arrow keys to select the CD and press <Enter> key. That should run the Dell CD. Follow the onscreen prompts to run diagnostics checks

Dell inspiron b130 won't boot up.

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if you can see what is happening on that.
It is a possibility that your inverter is faulty and will need to be replaced. They will normally power on for a few seconds, then cut out.
Remember to set the laptop to use the external monitor with the function keys.

Dell Inspiron B130 wont boot

First remove the battery from the PC! Leave it off for a short period of time! about 2min. This allows the computer to erase anything in temporary memory. Place the battery back onto th PC and try to boot it up. The other thing you can do is boot the pc up with just the power cord in place. See if it boots just from the power cord. Sometime the batteries from dell causes the whole entire PC to become unresponsive.
