My laptop turns on normal goes to window and then shuts down

The is something wrong with the booting of the computer. Does it pass the initial BIOS boot screen? Try pressing F8 once every second after pressing the power button and see if you can boot the computer in safe mode.

Reads boot disk failure 0

Boot disc 0 failure is usually indicative of the failure of the hard drive that contains the operating system. Make sure the hard drive is well seated into the cables and that the cables are seated onto the motherboard. If it all is well, then the hard drive has most likely failed and needs to be replaced.

No screen bootup on delld800 screen doesn't come on when i power up.

Hey there!

Try this thing.

First make sure the computer turns on,

It's a no boot issue if. After you turn in on then you see the dell logo then after that black screen,

But if after you turn the computer you don't anything
check if the power button is solid green,
if it is then it was able to complete the POST process,

if that is your situation then try to plug in an external monitor, If you don't have one try to press D+power
while computer is off,,

But if your situation is really a no boot problem
the you will be able to see the DELL logo when you turn on computer the when you see that start tapping on f12 then run diagnostics on the hard drive, if it passed then there is something wrong with the OS,
and i suggest try to back up files.

Hope this helps!

The cable connecting to the PC might be loose, or the part entering the monitor could be.

Try turning the monitor on, and after a few seconds, turn on the computer. You should be able to see the BIOS POST screen text flashing by. If you can't, there is something wrong in your hardware settings.

If you can, however, that's the OS resolution set too high: the monitor shuts down to protect itself. Boot in safe mode by pressing the F8 key immediately after powering up, then lower the video resolution in Control Panel display settings to something safe - 1024 x 768 usually does the trick. At that point you can reboot in normal mode and raise the resolution again to the maximum supported by the monitor (check the manual for that).

I disabled the network but now I get a blank screen I was getting

It sounds like the computer might be wanting to go a PXE Boot ...

sdef_definition.gif - Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) refers to various methods of getting an IBM-compatible computer, typically running Windows, to boot up without the need for a hard drive or boot diskette. The methods evolved from the era before computers had internal disk drives.
PXE usually involves booting a computer from firmware -- data contained on a read-only-memory (ROM) or programmable read-only-memory (PROM) chip

* Could something wrong in your computer SETUP. Go in Setup (usually f1 or some key right after turning the computer on) and check that there is not a PXE boot from Network or something like that enabled. Could also mean hard drive has went bad.

Won't boot..

u unplugged everything and it booted up finely.
its mean that there is something wrong with the drviers.
check it one by one. just plug hard driver first and let is boot. if its still behaving the same as after plugging all then the problem is caused by the hard drive.

Booting and dvd drive not detected

i'm not sure if your pc has a floppy drive, but if it does, then get a win 98 or win ME startup disk then power up and then push the F8 key (or DELETE key) to enter BIOS setup then select boot floppy then and insert into slot then reboot then boot minimal then get to c: drive and run CHKDSK/FIX then try again, w/out floppy. if no-go then repeat back to c: drive and delete the PAGEFILE.SYS file (may need to attribute the file to allow delete) then reboot w/out floppy
