Well Jim I hate to say it but you have to Install a fresh copy of Windows or Mac, what ever you have installed. The problem lies with your Boot Section, your computer can't read the sequence required to run your system. If you have an Installation disk for your windows or what ever, it will read that when you Re-Boot and take off from there. Sadly, if you have files you need to keep their lost unless your System Disk will let you repair instead of installing a fresh copy of windows. That should do the trick. If you don't use your windows disk, you have to have some type of Bootable Disk to read from. Good Luck.

Hi elaineblackb ,
Try to do a power cycle and see if that will work.
  1. Turn off your computer and unplug it from the power outlet
  2. While unplug, press and hold the power button for 15 secs.
  3. Try to turn it back on.
Goodluck!

When I turn my comp on, I get the Dell screen, then a black screen with a flashin cursor. When pressing f8 for safe-mode, nothing happens. Just a black screen with flashing cursor. Please help


Unplug all external USB devices to your computer and power it back up again.

If you can start the computer, then you probably have a faulty USB device connected to your computer.

My dell dimension 5521's lights 3 and 4 flash, nothing on screen


Have you tried booting up in safe mode to see if it comes on then. If you can then you will have installed something that isnt working with your computer which is causing it not to boot properly. When you swith the comp on you should see some option ie f2 for boot menu. I think its f8 you need to keep pressing then you will get another menu after a couple of seconds saying boot in safe mode, boot in safe mode with networking, boot windows normally or boot windows in last known working state. boot in safe mode see if it works. Hope this helps.

On back of the computer is a on off switch for the power supply, or unplug the computer for one minute. Turn the switch back on, or plug the computer back in and try to turn it on.

Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.
