Hi,

Pls try:
1. When the Dell logo screen appears press the F2 key to enter the BIOS?COMS; or
2. There are some Dell Latitude that uses Fn + F1 (while booted).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Can I take my old dell c600 hard drive out and put it into a dell c800 ?


Yes you can do it. But if any Operating system is install in old HDD then that will be not work on your new Laptop. Otherwise you can get all data and information from your old HDD.

Thanks

Dell latitude laptops cpi cpx won boot up just blinks


If you don't get any fans from the CPU spinning, then there is a problem with actually tripping the power supply in the laptop.

The normal boot sequence is as follows:
1. Power is applied, fans spin
2. CPU receives power and then BIOS is checked
3. RAM then is detected and rest of the system components are quickly checked by BIOS
4. Hard drive is checked for boot sector.

Ask somebody to check the laptop to see if the voltage and amperage from the charger is within tolerance. If it is higher than 130% higher than listed in the voltage or more than 15% higher in the amperage, then the laptop is damaged.

If it is within tolerance, then try removing the actual battery first. If this doesn't help, have somebody check the hard drive. If this boots up in another laptop of the same model, then there is a problem with the transformer in the laptop.

Dell Cpi-A laptop Bios problem


Hello I am having the same problem. I have two batteries neither of which are detected even at full charge. My laptop only runs when its plugged in. My bios appears just as you said it remains stuck on the first page. This happened after my machine shut itself off i think due to overheating. I have done many upgrades and it has run great for over a year now. I have a much larger processor than my motherboard was meant for but it still ran with it in. Have you made any changes to your laptop recently? This happened to me right after i replaced the harddrive. Please let me know if you have fixed the problem thanks!
