Dell Inspiron 14z :: Stuck On Logo Starting Screen - Windows 8 Not Booting

Dec 25, 2012

My brand new Inspiron 14z remains on the starting DELL screen after boot up.

The initial windows 8 parameters have been registered properly (it seems...) and since the second requested reboot the PC does not go to windows 8. I have been suspecting a hardware problem and ran the full diagnostic (success!). There is nothing into the setup (F2) parameters which looks wrong and none of the boot options (F12) I tried have been successful... Is there a way to run a windows 8 safe mode boot or equivalent (note that I cannot go inside windows 8 top change this kind of option of course), and to move forward?

I desperate to see the someting else than this Dell Logo in the middle of the screen (forever?).

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Boot - Stuck At Screen Starting Windows

Mar 6, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that doesn't boot successfully. It gets to the screen indicating "Starting WIndows" and then just sits there. I tried safe booting but when it should be displaying windows files that are loading, the screen just stays blank. I tried selecting "Repair" boot but the system just blinks and returns to the window that asks me to select Repair or Normal Boot. (If I select Normal Boot, it gets to "Starting Windows" and that's it.

I checked out the hard drive externally and it appears the hardware is functioning normally. I successfully booted with Hiren's Boot CD. I would like to attempt a RECOVERY but can't get beyond the Repair screen.

Since Dell doesn't provide an OS disk with the computer that would allow me to reinstall Windows 7...

Dell Inspiron 14Z 5423 :: Will Not Boot - Stuck On Logo Screen

Jan 20, 2013

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....

HP Envy15-3000 Lockups :: Notebook Freezes On Starting Windows Screen (booting Up)

Aug 15, 2014

My Envy15-3000 notebook freezes while starting up.  It only makes it to the Starting Windows screen then Microsoft  icons stop moving.  This has been going on since Tuesday (8/12).  I ran checks and the memory and harddrive (quick and full) tests came back positive - i.e. no problems.  I finally decided to reformat it yesterday (8/14).  It gets all the way through the reformatting process until it wants to start the system for the "first time" (I imagine that this will be the last time it restarts in the recovery process) and still freezes on the Starting Windows screen.  If I try to hard shut off and try any other boot up option I can think of (Safe Mode, etc.) it says Recovery Failed and asks me to retry, get details or Save Log.  When I retry, it goes back to the freezing.  As such, I am now in a seemingly endless loop of retrying the recover to get to the freezing start windows screen.
All I want to do is wipe the hard drive and reload everything.  I'm not interested in recovering the old data as I have everything backed up.  I got no error messages in my Run it, Memory, etc tests, so I am at a loss as to how to proceed.
I have the original drive recovery/windows 7 DVDs that came with the system.

Dell XPS 13 L322X :: Stuck After Logo Screen - Win 8 OS / No Update Done

Apr 6, 2013

I have an XPS 13 (L322X)  running Windows 8. Yesterday I turned it off with the proper "Shut down" function. Willing to restart it, it never did.

Similarly to the post but without Windows 8 update (nor of other software)!

"I see the Dell logo, then it goes dark (but the screen is on, i can see LED glow at the edge of the screen), nothing happens anymore. If I hit the ESC or Return key I see a progress bar near the bottom of the screen and 'F12 Boot Options' at the lower right corner. There is no indication in the progress bar, so I do not know whether it is showing 0% or 100%. If I do Ctrl-Alt-Delete the laptop starts all over again, Dell logo, dark screen, hit any key, progress bar... and that's it. Hitting the Power button does the same thing, whether I hit it once or hit-and-hold."

I also tried the F12 key, but nothing moves after the "on hold" progress bar. I cannot disconnect the battery, yesterday I unplugged the power adapter and let it run out of battery, restarted but nothing changed.

The only thing I can do is with F2 entering the BIOS but since I am not a tech, I didn't trust to make changes there.

Dell XPS M1530 :: Stuck On Bios Screen That Displays Logo

Apr 21, 2013

I have a XPS M1530 that has seen very little use but unfortunately won't boot now.  It is stuck on the bios screen that displays the dell logo - the progress bar on this page only displays about 15% complete and will not progress any further under any circumstances.  I have performed the diagnostic boot option of holding down the <FN> key before power on and this displays just the caps lock flashing rapidly - the flashing does not halt.  The other diagnostic lights (scroll and num lock) remain unlit except at the initial boot they flash once as per normal.

As dell has not published the diagnostic codes. The laptop is "as new" if a few years old now and I would like to keep it for sometime to come - the purchase price at the time was ~£1300.  One reason I bought dell was for the after sales care - I understand there have been various issues with this particular series of laptop which is unfortunate but I am hopeful to get it working again at reasonable cost.

Dell XPS 12 :: Unable To Boot Any OS - Stuck At Windows 8 Loading Logo

Mar 7, 2014

Dell XPS 12 Laptop. 

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.

Dell Inspiron 17R :: Windows 8 Frozen On Logo - Blank / Black Screen?

Mar 22, 2013

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.

Acer Aspire E1-572G :: Can't Boot Past Starting Logo

Feb 25, 2015

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.

Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 :: Red Screen When Starting Up And Bad Quality After Startup

Apr 11, 2013

I have a Inspiron 17R N7110  and since yesterday i have a very peculiar problem. When starting the pc, instead of a black screen, the screen is red, the windows logo is very unclear. After the startup and at the login screen there are red stripes ( like clouds) all over the screen. 

And when logging in the quality of the screen is bad. When attaching an external screen there are no problems. I have checked all setting on the display to no avail. I ran the diagnostics on the bootup and found no errors.

Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 :: Blank Screen Just After Logo Pops Up

Mar 27, 2013

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.

Dell Inspiron 5720 :: Shows Logo Then Black Screen

Mar 18, 2013

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.
