This is a state your BIOS corrupted. Re-installation may not be successful. Need to re-program the chip with original BIOS.This process is technical and need expertise in that. I really don't know a BIOS reset will work for you. There is some steps you can try Remove laptop battery and power cord. Press and hold the power button for 2-3 minutes. Put back battery and plug in power cord and start. Remove the CMOS battery and all power in sources(laptop battery& AC adapter) and short the two terminals in the CMOS battery holder with a screw driver or similar thing. Then put back everything and press power button. I am not sure that these steps will bring your system into a working state. try these steps before going to a re-programming Hope this helps
Hi there The shock from the drop may have displaced the memory modules and the video drivers could be failing, take them/it out and re-seat them/it, then try to boot the pc again. If this does not work the hard drive has took the brunt of the shock and you have to run the recovery cd or partition. I must warn you however, that you could loose data if you have to perform a recovery. Good luck and let us know how you get on.
Put the Dell CD in the drive bay. Turn on the computer and start pressing <F12> key. It should say "Preparing one-tome boot" When the screen shows a selection menu for the boot device, use the arrow keys to select the CD and press <Enter> key. That should run the Dell CD. Follow the onscreen prompts to run diagnostics checks
This is going to be a simple software glitch. Start by doing a system restore. You may have to go back two or three restore points before it corrects itself. The restore should fix it, but if it doesn't, then you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.
have you checked all connections to the battery, make sure the battery terminals are free of cerrosion(rust&mold) make sure alll the power cables are intact. it does not sound like the power supply due to the fact that the light is coming on for a min or so.
