SOURCE: my computer won't start up or get passed the boot up stage

If its the screen I am thinking, it may be because it cannot detect the Hard Driive, so no windows files to load.

- Reboot
- Enter the BIOS menu (usually F1, but think F2 on Dell;s)
- Click on the summary page, under IDE or HD can you see a label with a size e.g. HD1 800000 or does it say none - you can also see other devices from the suammry such as CD ROM ..etc Can you see all thse correctly?
- If not seeing the Hard drive you will need to remove the PC cover and check the IDE/SATA connectors are firmly in, in your harddrive and the other end to the mother board (could of come loose). If they are, there are still more things that can be don - but let us know if this is what you are experiencing first.

Press F12 right after you turn the computer on, this should give you boot options, select boot from CD, press OK and you may get a prompt displayed to "Press Enter To Boot From CD" You should be good to go from there. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a pleasent day.

My computer starts on black screen... drive 1 not found: serial ATA, SATA-2.. strike the F1 to continue, F2 to run.. if i press F1 it says NTLDR is missing what di i do? I have the operating sys. disk..


  • Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD drive, and then restart the computer.
  • Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  • Press 1 (One) to select windows XP and then hit enter.
  • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the command prompt, start typing

COPY D:\i386\ntldr C:\ (Considering that D is your CD Rom Drive)
COPY D:\i386\ntdetect C:\ (a file that may also be missing)


Then rebuild the boot configuration boot.ini file by
Attrib -H -R -S C:\boot.ini (if not found skip the next line)
DEL C:\boot.ini
BootCfg /Rebuild

My computer has a black screen and says "Reboot and select Proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and Press a key." Im not that computer savy. Help!


Your computer tries to load an Operating System from several devices:
* the 'A:' diskette
* the 'C:' disk-drive
* the 'D:' CD-ROM
* any USB device
* via your network-port, "talking" to a "boot-server" on your network.

What probably has happened is that you have no disk in 'A:', and no disk in 'D:', and your disk-drive in 'C:' could *NOT* be read, i.e., your disk-drive has "died", and so your computer says "insert media".

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for complete trouble-shooting.

do you reach the manufacturers logo such as Dell logo when you start up your computer? if none, then you may have a POST problem. Ttry to re-seat the ide/sata cables and ram.

Dell Dimension 4600 stalls during boot


Turn the computer's power on.
Immediately put the original Windows XP CD into the drive.
Tell the computer to boot from the CD (not from the hard-drive).
Does it start to boot from the CD?
Do you get as far as the "repair/install" boot-screen?
If so, your basic hardware is OK, and turn your computer off,
rather than choosing "repair" or "install".
Then, it's probably either the hard-drive that is failing,
or the installed copy of Windows XP is fuddle-duddle-ucked up, so that it cannot finish the "Windows startup" processing.

Get the discs that came with your computer and boot off them. When your computer is on the dell screen when you first turn it on it will say something like "hit f3 for boot menu". You need to hit the button it specifies and select your cd drive. It will say press any key to boot from cd, and as you may have already guessed you want to hit any key. Then when a windows screen comes on you need to hit r and follow the onscreen instructions from there.

On startup hit delete or whatever button your computer uses to get into bios. Then change the disk boot priority to make the cd drive 1st. Then when you restart the computer hit any key to boot from the cd. Is this what you wanted?
