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.

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.
Thanks,
Have a great day

press F8 when the windows in starting up when you see the option then see if you can do a system restore to a few days before the problem started. if it works run your antivirus to see if your were infected.

Can't enter setup


Hi if you want to enter the bios setup normally you will press del button at boot just after you turn on. Sometimes it isn't del button it may be F1 key and some machine require you to hold the F1 key down then turn on.

Hope this is of some use to you.

Startup problem


This could be a corrupt bios or a low cmos battery, follow instructions. Take the right hand side panel off the pc. Look for a disc shaped 3V watch type battery and replace (Very cheap) Look on the motherboard and reset the bios at the 'JBAT1' terminal put jumper(little plastic cap) from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Restart pc and enter bios when prompted(or press F2 or DEL on startup) to set time and date, save settings and Exit bios. It should now boot ok.
