Hi,

Have you tried using another keyboard? if that doesnt work, try hitting the pause/break button on your keyboard and you should notice that your screen will be stuck on the dell logo with the bar going across, once you notice that hold down ctrl and hit f11. that should work..

Let me know what happens, alright?

Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the startup and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options. If nothing works, please restore it to factory settings by holding down CTRL key and hitting F11 key up and down at the startup.

If you want to reformat to factory condition, then press Ctrl + F11 at start-up when the blue bar comes up with "Dell.com" on it. If you miss it then just let it start up, then restart and try again. If it still does not work, press F12 at startup and select recovery option. Please note, if you have deleted the Dell Recovery Partition this will not work for you. You will need to reformat by inserting your Operating System CD at Startup and booting from that (F12).

Put recovery disk in the CD drive. On reboot, hold down F12 key. You should get a choice of drives to boot from. Make sure the first two are in the correct order:

1. CD-ROM (optical drive)
2. HDD (hard drive)

then press F10 to save and exit.

Now the laptop should boot correctly from the recovery disk.
