Hello there,

----

You can overcome many PC problems if you can at least start the PC, whether the problem is due to a bad driver, incorrect monitor settings, flaky hardware, or a troublesome program. In these cases, you may be able to fix the problem by starting Windows in Safe Mode, or by using an emergency boot diskette (see "It's Just Not Normal" or "What To Do When . . . You Need To Create A Boot Disk" in the "See Also:" section below). If that still doesn't solve your problem, keep reading.

Most boot problems are hardware-related. There are many agents that may have contributed to your PC’s apparent demise. There may be external factors that are causing your PC to misbehave that you can rectify quickly. First, check the power supply and all connections. If everything looks to be connected correctly, the next step is to listen to see if your hard drive is spinning but nothing's on. If this is the case, check to make sure your monitor is turned on and/or unplugged. If you still haven't made any progress with your PC, you may have a Hardware hang-up that's a little more serious (such as your CPU, Motherboard, or a number of other items).

What To Do When . . .Your PC Won’t Boot


Yours truly,
Jack d.

Dell E6400 won't boot up (most of the time)


Computer does not boot up
The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Disconnect the drive and try to boot to the BIOS (usually with F1, F2 or Delete key). If that doesn't work, try removing all cards from the computer (except a video card if the video port is not on the motherboard). If you can boot this way, try inserting back any removed cards to see what hangs it. Do you hear any beeps when the computer is booting (beep codes)?

Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.
