Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
1.) I get an error message: INF INSTALL FAILURE REASON: The Handle is invalid
2.) I can't get to advanced setup to try to clear NVRAM
To clear the NVRAM, perform the following steps:
Restart your computer.
At the first text on the screen or at the Dell logo, press the <F2> key every three seconds until the message Entering Setup appears.
The System Setup screen appears.
Press the <Caps Lock> key, the <Scroll Lock> key, and the <Num Lock> key to light up all three lights on the keyboard.
Press the <Alt> and <E> keys at the same time.
The system will emit a beep tone to indicate that NVRAM has been cleared.
Press the <Esc> key, and then press the <Enter> key to save the changes and reboot the system.
Proceed with the installation or troubleshooting that you were attempting
