Windows cant be bad, seems your laptop is not geting throught POST (power on self test)

I could probably fix or find the reason If I where near you but not much I can say from here.

Id take it to a professional for analysis, simple problem analysis shoudnt cost itself at all. so.

easyer on all of us that way.

probably dead ram stick Also try F2 and reset the Bios settings.
you could try to take a stick of memory out and see how that works.
its also possible that your hard disk is failing.

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

When i press power on; F2 set up and F12 boot options appear and nothing else happens and i dont know what to press next for ti to start up.


Are you trying to reinstall your OS? Or just trying to boot to normal mode?
If the first is your case, you have to choose booting with CD drive in order for your system to boot on your CD Installer.
However, if the second is your case, you don't need to press F2 and F12 after powering on. If you encounter this without your BIOS changed, try reverting it back to BOOT on HARD DRIVE. That is when you are in the BOOT OPTIONS, select HARD DRIVE and press ENTER.

Dell laptop says erra operating system


F12 gets you one-time boot options, F2 gets you into setup. If you get an operating system error booting to the hard drive then try changing first boot to the CD/DVD using your Windows disk. What you do then depends on whether there are files you really need to save or if you want to reinstall the operating system. You are welcome to ask again if you need more help. ~Steve
