Hi I have Dell inspiron 1720 (17 inches) laptop with intel centrino- window vista ultimate OS Problem: after system boots up, just before windows login, it comes "Please wait" and again it...


That's an interesting problem. It sounds like it's applying new display settings, but I'm not sure why it would do so over and over again. I would suggest trying to start Windows in "Safe Mode". To do that, as the computer is booting, hold down the F8 key to get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. Maybe this will get you to a normal login screen. If so, you should try to change your display settings to the simplest possible and then reboot. I hope this helps.

Laptop doesnt boot only power ligth comes out when press on buttom a ligth comes out but nothing on the screen i dont hear the fan keep going.


Maybe there are some problem in your start button (the button wire connect to mainboard is Loosening.

Please press the start button for about 3-4 seconds then see it would start. Always it may solve the problem, this happend to my inspiron 6400 too, after used for years the start button failure. It shows only power lamp lights green but the other light cant light red.

If no, maybe your must change a power supply, as the lower volt current cant start all the device.

Laptop ?


First try to boot in the safe mode, by repeatedly pressing the F8 key. If it boots into the safe mode, press the start button, shut down then select restart. If it will not boot normally then, repeat booting in the safe mode and once booted go to programs/accessorys/system tools/restore the select a restore point date that the computer was functioning correctly and restore for that date. If it will not boot the safe mode restart the computer with the system cd disk and restore from it. BPCS
