Hi Daniel,

I just saw your Video and thanks for the detailed info, I see that it shows a boot screen but unfortunately I noticed that your computers Hard drive is not showing on the list of Bootable devices. I believe that your Hard Drive is Either just went lose in the system or it already went bad.

First thing you can do is check the Hard Drive Cables and see if the cable are connected properly and not lose in the computer, if all cables seem to be connected as it should be. try turning the computer on again and go into the BIOS screen, As soon as you turn the computer ON keep on tapping Delete key or F1 depends on what brand you computer is to get in the BIOS, once you get into the BIOS look to see if the Hard Drive is detected it should show on the screen if it does then it means that the Hard Drive is detected again and see if you can boot back into windows, from there you will be able to tell if it is a hard Ware issue or just windows.

Error if this is a Hardware hard Drive problem can be Error7, No Bootable device found/detected, if these are the errors you get then this is a Hard Drive Problem and may need to replace your hard Drive, If you get no operating system found/detected this will only be a Windows issue and you can go and try to recover Windows but if all else fails but if the recovery fails re-installing Windows will be the best and final solution.

I hope that this will help with your concern.

Hi you usually have to press a button for that to appear such as F1, F2, F8 or delete etc I would run you fingers over the keys on the keyboard a few times one may be stuck down.

It may also appear of the boot drive (hard drive) it is set to is not available. Your hard disk that the machine boots from may be damaged. What kind of laptop is this?

It's not showing you even have a hard drive to boot to. If your sure you have a hard drive it may need to be reseated. There is either a cover underneath the laptop or a slide out tray on the side. Unscrew the cover/tray and pull out the hard drive then just put it back in and try to start it. Hope this helps. If not u probably have a dead hard drive. But the computer is still good.

Black screen right after dell logo


start tapping f8 after you boot the machine, when given the boot menu, try to load safe mode, and see if it loads. if it does, then you need to do a system restore back to before you got the black screen. more than likely windows loaded an updated driver that disagrees with your system. try that and let me know what happens :)

When you first start your computer how do get it to read the disc first?


You go into Boot Menu, and set the - first boot device to CDROM.
The computer will then read what is in the optical drive, first.

Computer off, press the Power On button. Watch closely for the blue dell logo.
Looking at the bottom of the monitor screen when the blue Dell logo comes up, you will see - F2 = Setup.
At the top right of the screen you will see F12 = Boot Menu.

This screen goes by F-A-S-T!
As SOON as you see the blue Dell logo press the F12 key.

If you miss this small window of opportunity, just wait for Windows to fully load, then click on Start, Turn Off Computer, and Restart.

If Windows is not loading, then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME. (Not shouting)
This will restart your computer so you can try again.

Upon entering Boot Menu you cannot use your mouse anymore, you have to use the keyboard.

The Boot Device Menu has the devices listed, and each device has a number next to it.

At the bottom of the menu, type the number that is next to CDROM, then press the Enter key.

This is Dell Support, and the main page for the Dell Dimension 4700 Service Manual,

Left-click on - Entering System Setup

Hi my laptop turns on and goes to the windows


Hi,

If it starts to load the operating system and then the display goes black then chances are that the dispay/video drivers are corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode by restarting the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key as it starts. This should bring up a sub menu with safe mode at the top. Use the cursor keys to highlight safe mode and press enter.
You will see white boot information scroll up the screen, be patient and wait for it to load up.
Click on your account and you will see a message about system restore. You don't want to use system restore so click on yes to work in safe mode.

Right click on My Computer/Computer and click on manage from the list. Then select Device Manager.

Look in the list for display adapters and click on the + or > next to to expand the list. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and it should load up the operating system and reinstall the drivers for the display.

Regards.

Dear, Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems. What you can do is if you have more than one memory modules, you can boot the system with single and see. If this is due to memory leakage issue, you can find it here

If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.
