Hi, you need to change your primary boot device, try pressing the F1 key during bootup, this will take you to the BIOS screen, from here you can change your primary boot device from HD to CD, save your changes, reboot, selecting boot from CD when it appears during bootup.
Hope this helps

Dell xps touch sreen just blinking blue light but blank screen


Sounds like it went to sleep due to low battery power. May be time for a new battery if it isn't holding charge well.

Plug it into the wall and push the power button once. It may come back on. If not...

Hold the power button down until the machine shuts off completely. If that doesn't work, remove the battery.

Blue screen error 0x0000007B


This error indicates you have a device driver issue especially those related to hard drive and other storage controllers, viruses, data corruption, and sometimes even hardware failures. The first thing you need to do is run the built in diagnostics.
1) Turn the computer off.

2) Turn the computer back on.

3) Immediately at the Dell logo screen, starting tapping the <F12> key once a second until the One Time Boot menu appears (if the computer boots to Windows turn the computer off and try again)

4) At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the PSA.

5) At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the PSA.

6) Write down any Error Codes and Validation codes listed.

Here is a link for Diagnostics pertaining to your model:

I have a blue screen and when I try to boot from cd my keyboard is not working on Dell dimension 3000. I can't type my password in. I have had 7 password failures.


Hello
If the keyboard is USB then try with PS/2 keyboard, the USB keyboard normally gives that kind of problem (blue screen and no typing)

My Dell Inspirion Mini 10 is beeping 8 times when I turn it on. Nothing on the screen.


Try holding Fn + End with battery and power cord out and while still pressing Fn + End plug only power cable back in and try to power on.

You have a rootkit virus, the only answer is reformat the drive and start fresh, sorry.
After a fresh install is done immediately install service(can be downloaded free from microsoft.com) pack 3, because sp2 is vulnerable to a host of trouble.

I had a keyboard failure on start up


The error message indicates you posted (power button green, video on the screen... keyboard failure error message). But your comments indicate the power button is yellow/orange. That indicates a "no post".

If the power button is yellow, disconnect everything from the motherboard, but the connections for the power supply and control panel (power button). Turn it back on.

If you get a green power button, and the system beeping at you add the memory back in. All four slots MUST be filled!!! If it's still green, add the video card back in. If that works, keep adding things one at a time until it either works, or you know what's causing the problem.

If you get a yellow button, check your heatsink. You just replaced the motherboard. You might not have gotten it right the first time. If everything is tight, and all the power connections are tight and plugged in (if I remember right, there should be a 20 pin and a 4 pin connector), it might actually be a bad board. Try swapping the old board back in and see if you get a different response (if so, the new board is bad).

Dell pc giving blue screen -issue with recent Windows update?


Dear SherriJ:

Some time you might get this issues with the updates if they doesn't install properly or the computer turns off while instaiing updates.

However you can select last known good configuration of restore you computer to earlier time.

I would recommend you to keep the automatic updates on that will help you keep your computer in a good state.
