Normally, when the Dimension L-series gives a Press DEL to continue, it is an indication that the Hard Drive (Where data is stored) is failing.

At the Dell Screen when the system is 1st turned on, press CNTL+ALT+D to run a quick diagnostic on the hard drive. If there is a failure, you will get a failure code (Code 3, Code 4 etc) if the drive passes, no failure was detected (Doesn't mean one doesn't exists though)

To run more diagnostics, you can boot to the Dell Dimension Resource CD if you have it and run Dell Diagnostics from the CD.

How can i reset canon pixma ix6520 printer?

hi there.
this is all i could find,if this does not work go to the link at the bottom.
Press "OK", "Yes" or "Close" to dismiss alert prompts, or press "OK" on the printer. Instead, press the "OK" or "Stop/Resume" button (down arrow/triangle-circle) on yourprinter, for 5-8 seconds, until the low ink indicator goes out, the power light stops blinking and/or the printer resumes printing.

My friends laptop starts up and only loads the wallpaper on the desktop homepage, no icons or start menu appear.

Don't worry when your friends laptop starts and if nothing is displayed then Press Ctrl Alt Del keys on your key board.Just see that you have pressed all the keys at same time or first press Ctrl then keep it pressed and with another finger press Alt and also keep it pressed and at last press Del key.
You will find task manager opened on the screen .There you will find File option ,click on it and select New task from the drop down.
Another dialog box will open type there explorer.exe and click OK.
Your problem will be fixed then.
Have a great day

Press f4 to resume

u need to go into bios setup.this can be done by pressing del button on ur keybadr while booting is goin on. some time the key to be pressed will be F10 or F1 instead of del key.
There will be an option as stop booting on error. disabl;e that..n it ll be fine.. btw to find out the error u'l have to specyfy each n every settings in ur bios.So its better u to ask for a person who knows these things to ur home.. Else u can do by exploruing these things urself.It ll be fun..i would prefer this..

Press (F1) to resume, (F10) to setup

I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution

Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?

Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"
