Hi when I turn on my Del is say's UMDA=66MHZ Press Del to resume.
when I press del all seems to work ok.. A few days ago my printer stoped working. With my last computer when the printer stopped working it was all down hill from there.. Is there anything I can do ..
I use to really ENJOY computers any more they are just a problem...
On this web site it will not let me put in my proper product so I will pick a different one
I have a Dell Dimension L866r but it will not let me put that in. It keeps saying please enter valid product..

Re: Start up problems
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.

Hi Good day!! there's a tricky way of your problem in the welcome screen try to press ctrl alt del at the same time. NOTE don't Enter it!!! after you press ctrl alt del press esc button see if it work i hope it works...
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
for most desktops the key to press is del ...but it has to be pressed on boot when it shows your devices ....so ...just power it up ...and keep pressing del rhythmical to be sure that you do not miss it ...anyway after a few boots you will see cause it is written on screen press del to enter setup ...if there is another key set to do the job it will specify which one... for some laptops you have to press F 2but I dont think this is the case... if helpful ..please dont forget to rate ... Have a nice day !
can you boot in safe mode? 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. system restore can be found under start/programs/accessories/system tools.
try start your pc press F8 key and enter in safe mode
if u get administrator then enter in it and create new user as admin then restart your sys when u get logon window press ctr+alt+del+del then enter in new user .then go to conrol panel ,user account remove password of your user account.
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.
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.
