Question about Dell Studio XPS 1340 PP17S, 1640 PP35L (C1990SUK1355060141D)
Have you tried the "Power Flee". Sometimes this small step works where we don't expect it to be..
>Press and hold the "power button" for 5-10 seconds.
>Remove all cables, peripheral devices(If connected)
>Take out the laptop battery and wait for couple of minutes.
>Insert the battery again and try to boot.
If it passes through the dell logo screen now and still stuck somewhere(BLACK / BLANK screen), then we can try "advanced boot options", Windows vista / 7 WINRE options(startup repair, system restore, various commands from "command prompt", and complete factory restore).
If its still stuck on that same dell loading screen, consult your manufacturer for hardware diagnostics.

Ughhh, this seems quite rough. :/
It looks like this particular Dell model has a lot of issues. I have tried doing some research, and i would say you might try any of these steps:
1. try hitting F8 even before you get to the splash screen. Start hitting it as soon as you press the power button :) If that works, this is the Windows start screen and you can choose options. I would suggest u choose the Repair option. --> I doubt this will help you though.
2. There are people who reported issues with external hard drives, especially from Seagate models. Make sure they are all unplugged.
3. There also reported problems with the battery. Take out the battery and try to power it on with just the adapter.
And update the BIOS. (but you need to boot into Windows for that).
What kind of action caused the system crash?
You also try using some boot cds to try to restore to the last restore point to your windows. You can use the Hiren's Boot CD. Refer to this article for a guide.
