Dell Inspiron 5737 :: Computer Turns On But Won't Go To Windows / Stuck On A Screen
Dec 31, 2014
computer turns on but wont go to windows, stuck on a Dell screen, press ctrl alt delete 2 option F2 or F12, almost as if windows is no longer installed, wifes computer, not sure if she picked up a virus, computer was working fine till the other day now nothing.
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?).
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...
i bought a pavilion G6-2230sa with windows 8 last week It has downloaded automatically the latest updates today and is hanging at 13% every time Message - Configuring windows updates - 13% complete - do not turn off your computer It's been doing this for hours to day and occasionally restarts and starts all over again. How do i get it to complete or stop trying?
I've bene playing a game (tf2) on my laptop, and 3 times now its turned off, just straight up turned off, and so I turned it back on, and then the keyboard didn't work no matter what I did.
So I called dell and they said some sort of static built up in the keyboard, and to take out battery, and wall plug, and hold power for 15 seconds, and then turn comp on. I did that and it restored my keyboard to full use.
But now twice since then my comp has shut down, and I've had to use that technique to restore it...
This laptop is only 2 weeks old, ? Why is it having problems a mere 2 weeks after I got it.
I mean I'm not even typeing fast enough to make a static charge, in game you only use a couple buttons. Also i'm on tile floors, no carpet at all, I use my laptop on a table although it does get hot.
I am currently using windows 8 as my OS. When I attempt to start my laptop the Dell logo flashes on the screen and the screen turns blank/black and sits there for a few min before displaying an empty bar and F12 Boot Options in the bottom right hand corner.
I have attempted to press F12 to try and load windows in safe mode but everything is frozen at this point.
Is there a way to determine if its a hardware issue or windows issue. When I searched for the issue I found some with a similar issue but the link provided for support was no longer valid
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....
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7. I try to turn on my computer, it goes through the Dell logo screen and then instantly reboots. I have pushed F2, F12, F8 and Ctrl+F11 keys during the Dell logo screen, but none of these do anything; all that happens is a black screen with a blinking white cursor in the upper left corner comes up for a couple seconds and then my computer restarts. I have the OS disc for reinstallation, but because of the computer not going past the black screen with the white blinking cursor in the upper left corner, I cannot reinstall Windows because it will not restart correctly.
I am having HP Pavilion DV6 6140Tx . Installed Windows 8 Enterprise Edition and updated drivers using drivers for Windows 7 64x from HP site
The problem is that, when i shutdown my laptop, it doesnt shutsdown, it turns off the screen, but not the processor, fan, touchpad, the light and fan movement is ON and it never shuts down. Then I have forcibly press n hold the Power button to shut it down !
It also has a delayed Startup issue! But Restart function just works fine..!
I don't graphics drivers installed on the system - its AMD ATI RADEON 6700M HD - no compatible drivers available !
I have an almost 2-year-old laptop with which I've been having problems for the last week or so. It all started when after hibernating the computer had a blank black screen not responding so I shut it off. After that it seems to boot up only once every 20 or so times. What happens after I press the power button: The laptop starts booting but doesn't get to the dell startup screen, after a while (after booting 3-4 times unsuccessfully) the fans even start spinning but the screen stays black and the hard drive light indicates that the drive isn't working.
LED Lights: The first light turns on, the second light turns on for a second or two (indicating hard drive starting to boot up) but then the light turns off and the computer is still running, but nothing happens. The third light is fine, there is no problem with the battery or the power supply.
I've tried reseating the hard drive, the RAM, removing one stick, then the other etc. and nothing works. The strangest thing is sometimes (very rarely) it does work, so far it booted up 4-5 times (if it gets to the DELL startup screen it's fine), but the rest 85 times it didn't .
I have tried taking the battery out, and letting pc start w/o it, hitting the f8 key and trying each solution, System restore won't work, and each fix I read about won't work either. I hate re installing the oS, as I lose everything on my pc.
it's just stuck there, the blue progress bar doesn't show up, I tried pressing f8 but nothing appears. I have also tried draining the battery and recharging then rebooting but nothing happened. It is completely unresponsive. It used to work just fine, just last night I've been playing games and it was working smoothly. But when I woke up and booted up my laptop, nothing was working. By the way, what's the small button underneath the laptop, I think it is the master reset button, because my brother was thinking of pressing it.
When I strart my laptop it will show the Acer screen with the F2 F12 options then goes black with cursor in upper left corner and when windows should load it goes back to acer screen and will keep doing this till I smack it on the side then it will load windows and run normally. I created a disk image, bought a ner hard drive, loaded my image onto the new hard drive and it worked fine for a couple hours of starting and shutting down. Then it started doing it again ...

My computer is about a year old. When I turn it on, it will Go to the home screen & then it will go to a blue screen with a message that says a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information: STOP: 0x0000007E .How can I fix this so I can get back on to use my computer?
My xps 1640 has been going strong until today for 5years +. I haven't even replaced the battery yet and it still works incredibly well, quite amazing I'd say. However, I've spent countless hours today trying to troubleshoot this issue and I can't even find a proper e-mail to contact dell with. I don't have warranty on it anymore but this is something that should be covered regardless of the limited warranty. The laptop is still in quite good state, I've never dropped it and I've maintained it properly throughout it's years. Aside from minor wear on the edges and the side lights not working anymore I have no issues with it. I was considering even upgrading the ram and ssd since it's my main workstation at the moment.
Anyways, I'll restate the problem: Computer turns on fine, no issues, if I move the screen up and down, 90% of the time there's a specific angle that it will trigger the notebook to turn off completely. It will start right up again if I press and hold the button, but otherwise it turns off instantly. This is not a sleep feature or anything, it's happening before and after I'm in Windows. I got through a day long's train ride and had no problems with this, I got into my apartment, booted it up, tried to readjust the screen and boom on the same day...
Have a Latitude E5420 and the screen suddenly turn dark. Still can see a bit but sometimes will return to the normal for while. Is this because of the parts has lose? Should change the monitor? Or related to the driver?
