Dell XPS 15 :: Stuck On Logo And Boots For Hours Before Getting To Password Page

Dec 24, 2014

So i got this Dell xps  15 from the US through my uncle last year,  it is my first Dell, and i am at a loss at what to do, it was working great till a few months ago, it started freezing up at will, i couldn't browse or open files without it freezing, the process was  frustrating especially since i use it for work mostly. So i decided to format it and start over, issue is it still did the same thing, it kept shutting down at will and making my work process very slow, 4 days it froze while i was trying to  browse the internet on Mozilla it was frozen for about 30 mins b4 i decided to restart it, i pressed down the on button and it has refused load up properly since then, it takes hours to boot and even when i get to the password page and see my files my laptop still freezes up and i have to start the whole process again.

Dell :: Inspiron N5110 / Getting Stuck On Web Pages And Having To Close Out The Page And Then Open It Up Again

Apr 8, 2013

Frequently have the problem of getting stuck on web pages and having to close out the page and then open it up again.  For example, am selling items on ebay and during the listing process - particularly when loading a photo - page freezes and am unable to navigate up or down or click on anything to move out of the page.  When I attempt to reload the page the laptop seems to make an effort to do this but with no results.  Have been clearing browsing data to see if that works but no luck.  I am running Windows 7.

Dell Vostro 3460 :: Not Boot Only Loads The Dell Logo And Then Shows A Black Page

Feb 9, 2013

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 ?

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 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....

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 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?).

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Stuck At White Logo On Black Background And Won't Load

Mar 15, 2013

I've had the W530 for two years and there is an issue when turning on the laptop. I haven't contact Lenovo's warranty yet. 
When I press the power button, frequently it shows the Thinkpad white logo against black background and won't load. Windows at all. It just stuck there.
I have already restore the system but the problem is still there.
Oddly, when it does work (which is rare), the "to interrupt normal startup, press enter" appears. Everytime it works, that phrase would appears.
The only components I have connected to this laptop are ethernet cable for internet, USB hub, and external drive hooked up through PC slot on the side.
Laptop Spec:
Windows 7 Professional with latest update
Intel Core i7 3720QM 2.6HGHZ
Bios 2.7

Dell :: Page File Errors

Mar 4, 2010

I have an e4300 with 4 gigs of ram and Win7. I recently downloaded the latest Windows Update as prompted by the OS, and now I'm having an issue where everytime I start the computer it asks me to set the page file size. It's always listed as 0 megs.

So, I got to reset it using the box marked managed by the system, and when I restart the same thing happens.

So instead I chose a custom size 1.5xRam for lower limit, 3x ram for higher limit, and still eveytime I restart it gives me an automatic pop-up telling me my page file is set to zero.
