Computer won't start

I have a Dell 4400. I went to get on the computer the other morning and all it does is keeps resetting to the microsoft page when it starting up. The little bar keeps floating across the area and then the computer shuts down and tries to restart again.

    I forgot to add that the last night that I used the computer there were storms in the area and there was several of the big electrical lines of comed that came down and blocked Interstate 57 in Illinois. I do have a power surge protector on the computer - not sure if that would have something to do with it? I appreciate all the help!!

Bios pins where is correct placement on DELL 4400

Hello here is the homepage:

To clear the CMOS values
1.Turn OFF the computer and unplug the Power cord.
2. If your motherboard uses jumpers move the jumper from pins 1-2(default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap in this position for about 10-15 seconds, then move the cap back to its original position.
If you motherboard has only two pins for CMOS reset , then you may use use a metallic object like a wire to create a contact between the two pins for 10-15 seconds.
3.Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer .

The bios can also be set to reset, by removing the cmos battery.

Hope this will help you.

Need to reset the password on a Poweredge 4400 server.

You would need to use an admin account, local or network. I can be done via Active Directory or by anybody else that can Manage it via network.

The other option is to use a third party util like Hiren's Boot CD. Lastly is to format. gl

Dell Inspiron 530 won't start, CMOS

Sounds like the CMOS battery is dead. You will find this battery on the mother board. It is a round watch battery, pull it and take it to a store like Walmart to get a proper replacement. I bet if you check your system time, it is wrong too.

Dell 4400 Main power in house went off while using my computer and then went back on about an hour later. Now when I try and restart the PC, the power button light turns yellow like it is in sleep mode...

The power supply or mother board probably went out. Did any other items in the house stop working? This happened to me years ago and the electric company reimbursed me for damages.
You can try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes, then retry listen for any beeps from the computer. If it is powering on but nothing on the screen and no beeps *********** board is probably toast.

Will not go past Windows start up page, just freezes on Windows is starting up.

You probably need to run chkdsk.

You grab your (xp?) cd and put it in the drive, and have the computer boot from cd.

Choose repair when you have the option.

It should come to a C:>

Type chkdsk /r

When done, remove the CD and restart.

Problems when installing sp2 on my dell 4400

Reboot and keep tapping on F8 into Safe Mode. You can select "Last known good configuration" or continue In safe mode and do a system restore to the day before you installed the SP3. To do a system restore, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System restore. Windows XP SP3 has some issues with certain programs giving the blue screen of death.
