To clarify with you does the system just hang on the Dell logo or does the screen go blank. Also you should have some diag lights on the fround of the system (1234 or ABCD). Let me know if you see them and what ones are lite up.

I have a dell laptop. When I turn it on Windows comes up and it stays on the screen that says windows and has the bar that goes from left to right to tell you it's booting. It never stops doing that. I...


Shut the system down by holding the power button for 5 seconds or more. Turn the system back on, as soon as the blue dell logo goes away tap f8 on the keyboard. This should bring you to a menu from which you can select "safe mode". See if it starts in safe mode. If so, troubleshoot further from there. If not press f12 on the dell logo and choose diagnostics. Run a quick scan, see if any errors are returned for the hard drive.

Note book locked on password and i cant open the notebook


Please check when you get the password, if you get a password after the Dell logo before the Windows logo then its the BIOS password. - You need to contact Dell for the same.


If you get the password after the windows logo - windows logon password, then you need to specify the windows version for trying to bypass the passwords.

I turn it on and the dell logo comes up and then the screen goes blank. Already had the hard drive looked at. All is good.


Try it on another PC, if it still does not work, please read below:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My dell inspiron loads the dell logo but wont go any further


When the logo appears press F2 immediately and you will get into BIOS settings. Check to make sure that under BOOT DEVICE or DRIVE CONFIGURATION that a hard drive is listed. If it is then listen when you turn the laptop on that the drive is making some sound.
The drive may be bad but it also may have a corrupt start up file which can often be repaired using an install CD.
If you have important data you want to save, I recommend you get the drive out of the computer and use a portable back up drive case/connector to transfer the data to another computer. If the drive is just beginning to fail, this may be your last chance to save important data.
Let me know if I can be of additional help.

With lan card


Hi,
please restart your system and at the blue dell logo keep tapping the F2 key, the bios setup screen will open, check in here if the lan card is enabled here or not. if not enable the lan card, once it is enabled from here windows will detect it and prompt you to install drivers.
