Dell Inspiron 14z :: Frozen On Dell Logo - Won't Boot
Feb 12, 2013
I purchased an Inspiron 14z a few months ago and it has been working fine until recently - upon starting up, it freezes at the dell logo screen. I have searched for posts regarding this problem and have found no solutions that work for me; I've tried pressing F2 and F12 but no keystrokes will register.
I have a new Dell Inspiron 17R with Windows 8 (bought dec 12). From the last two days, the laptop freezes after boot. The screen (touch wood) is fine, since it gives me option to trouble shoot and all. I have a feeling its a windows 8 problem. I have done all the things (such as pressing fn and power logo) as mentioned in other posts. Still its not working. As of now the laptop is in pre-boot system assessment - all are done but Hard Drive 0 is stuck at 10% from the last 15 mins!
Why is the screen black / blank after booting dell logo? I do get 'Welcome' message below the Dell logo but after that the screen is blank.
I received my new Inspiron Utrabook today . Everything was fine for the first time that I booted. When I tried booting the second time, it's stuck on the Dell screen. Tried hitting F2 as per the suggested posts but to no avail. And how do you remove the battery ?
Been working on my laptop all weekend and took an hour break came back and when the laptop tried to boot up got stuck on the dell screen. The screen it is stuck on has the dell emblem in the middle and has inspiron under that and a progress bar that is completely empty. In the bottom left corner is has F2 Setup and below that has F12 Boot Options.
I have tried to turn it on and press F2 all that happens is the F2 becomes highlighted but nothing seems to happen. I can do the same for the F12. I have tried booting it while plugged into wall and when it's not doesn't seem to change anything. I have left it on for a while now and every few minutes the screen goes blank and makes a few clicking noises and a few of the lights on the top corner of bottom part of laptop flash. It then just gets stuck in the same frozen screen.
The laptop has a weeks worth of very important data I need on it....
Inspiron 15R SE 7520..When I attempt to start my laptop it goes to the Dell logo screen and will not boot Windows 8. I've had the computer less than a month and if I have to restore the system completely it will not cause much of a problem.
I've got a dell Latitude D410; after it shows the Dell screen and the Windows XP screen (with the loading bar down the bottom), it goes to a screen with a blue background and a frozen mouse; after a while the mouse starts working but nothing else happens. I've tried booting from Last known good configuration but didn't work.
Symptoms: Unable to load windows 8, unable to load windows repair, Unable to load windows 8 installer DVD, unable to boot into Linux, Unable to load Linux live CDs or USB sticks, unable to even use an MSdos boot USB.
Problem just appeared one day, one month out of my 1 year warranty so I began troubleshooting myself. After replacing the SSD, Motherboard, and unplugging every single cable, even disassembling the display and disconnecting the Windows button, Webcam, and touchscreen cables. Still I Could not get any OS to boot. On a whim I powered on the laptop them promptly disconnected the daughter board and sure enough my OS booted right away. Upon further inspection I learned that the Auto-rotate or rotate lock button had become stuck/damaged due to a fall or hard bump. I ripped off the button and ordered a new daughter board online and all is well now.
my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.
So my questions are:
1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?
2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?
I have a HP G26 notebook pc, it has windows 7 on it and when I turn it on it only get to the windows start up screen with the little flashing logo and won't boot any further.. I have tried system repair, my back up disks.....
My acer aspire one AOD270 is not booting. After I press the power on, it stops on the initial display of the acer logo. Nothing else happens. The F2 key only makes it say "please wait" and forever.
I have tried to discharge capacitance and staff like that. I have tried several keys/hot keys to no avail including the F12 and altGr+F8 Is it the BIOS and what should I do or is it the RAM because I checked on my RAM and it is in the right place
I have a new E1-572G laptop. Long story short, I installed Win 7 on it, and after that, Ubuntu 14.10. I had issues with bootloader, but after fiddling around with legacy/UEFI booting, secure boot, and things like that, I almost successfully configured the laptop. When I selected the ubuntu uefi bootmgr in the bios, in secure boot mode, I rebooted the laptop for what I thought the last time, but then it did not go past the Acer logo. Only combination that works is ctrl+alt+delete. If I remove the hdd, then the acer logo flashes for half a second, and a black screen appears, with a static console cursor at the left upper corner.
I searched a lot in the topic, wanted to reset the bios, but there is no jumper for this, nor can I remove the bios battery. I wanted to reflash the bios, but I could not find proper instructions on this.
I have the following problem with my computer, lenovo sl 510: when pressing the power button, the computer won´t boot. On the display you can see a black background, in the upper right corner the intel emblem and in the lower left corner you can see "thinkpad". I cannot enter the bios and nothing works. We´ve tried already to press the power button a few times to reset the computer. Didn´t work as well. The keyboard doesn´t accept any hot key combinations.
I'm not able to get past the initial logo screen. It just hangs, pressing the blue thinkvantage button does nothing. F12 likewise. Not able to get any sort of boot menu. Bootable CD in drive lights flash, no boot.
Reseating hard drive
Reseating Dimms, swapping and plugging in one at a time
Removed battery and held power switch down to discharge
What do I do? I have tried copying the files to a USB and powering on with Fn-Esc held down. After letting go of the power button and holding Fn-Esc a different screen appears after 30 seconds. I let go and have given it 30 minutes but it is not doing anything. I have read online from other people the power button should be blinking. Do I need to rename one of the files.
I have a problem with my brand new Dell Inspiron 15R SE, that I bought yesterday.
In the evening I could use it with no problem, other than it unexpectedly disconnected from the wifi once, but otherwise it was OK.
This morning it didn't start at all, when I press power button the Dell logo appears, and it stays like that forever, nothing happens. The power and the Wifi LEDs are on, when the charger is connected, the LED is on too.
When I press the power button it will flash the dell logo then go black and sit there as long as I let it like that without changing. I've tried to research this situation and it seems this is a problem with these specific laptops. However, no solutions (like removing battery and ac adapter, pressing power for 1-2 min, reconnecting ac adapter, etc.) that seem to work for others have worked on mine yet. I'm concerned and starting to get extremely frustrated as I've only had this laptop for a month and a half. I'm a nursing student who has many tasks to complete on my (nearly BRAND NEW) computer daily and have a pretty nonexistent budget (which would explain my hesitancy to take it in for repairs somewhere).
I've had a Inspiron 17r SE 7720 laptop for about a month now, and it's worked wonderfully. However now when I go to start it up it gets stuck at the Dell Logo screen, sometimes the bar fills up and it goes to a black screen. And the bios don´t load, only show a loading bar but never loads, i try removing the battery and turn it on only connected to the electricity did not work. always hear the sound of the fan but does not load the OS...
I have been given Dell inspiron 15 as a scholarship From a Firm..On start up it shows Firm logo instead of Dell logo..even when operating system is loading it shows the same logo.I have updated BIOS..More over installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1.... But still see the same logo...I want Default Dell logo and default windows logo.What should I do.. If i set Boot option to UEFI (without Legacy Enabled).. It gives error that there is no disk ..
I recently bought an Inspiron 14z and I rebooted it for the first time the other day after properly plugging it in and starting to set it up. It froze on the Dell logo and for some reason I can't use f2, f1, f8, or f12 at all to get to the boot menu to fix it!
When I power up my laptop it won't go past the dell logo. I tried the removal of the battery test. I also tried running the diagnostics test and everything was good. There were no error messages. What can I try next?
Ok, so I have this laptop (17R 5720) that I got in November. Um every time I turn it on, I get a blank screen just after the dell logo pops up.
I've tried taking out the battery and unplugging the adapter and holding the power button for 30 seconds and putting the battery back in. I've tried "D" + power, tried Fn + Power, tried F2 to get to the BIOS window, and I've tried F12 (which only got me to the Boot menu). Still nothing happens.
Don't know what else I can do. It looks like I only got limited access to technical support so I hope it's nothing major that I have to deal with.
When I turn the laptop on it gets to the Dell logo screen then screen goes black with a cursor in top left corner but then it restarts again.Regardless if the F2 or F12 keys are selected or not, the systems restarts again. This cycle continues indefinately until I turn it off.
I have replaced the memory stick (brand new), the hard drive (brand new), the motherboard (used from ebay), and the processor (used from ebay) and still the same thing. I have tried it without the cd drive installed and same thing. I have tried it without the battery installed but with the power supply and same thing. I have tried turning it on with the windows disk in the cd rom drive and same thing.
My Inspiron 17R 5720 laptop (which came with windows 8) was working fine yesterday but whenever I try to turn it on today it shows the Dell logo briefly then goes to a black screen and remains like that. The F12 key works, but I can't change any settings as it will only let me highlight the diagnostics option. I've run diagnostics and recieved no error reports. Neither the F2 or F8 keys work, so I can't access BIOS or start in safe mode. I've tried removing the battery and unplugging the power.
