Dell Dimension 5150 probably software conflict

\015 Hi,My 5150 stopped working at start up. Thought it was PS or Mobo issue. Both are fine so it seems to be a software conflict of some type. I can get into safe mode but cant do much of course! I used system restore to the earliest date listed with no results. Called dell support and was told that the know what to do but since I am out of warranty by a couple of months it would cost me 200.00 for a year of support just to fix this issue.Anybody have an idea of what dell would have told me?\015

You will need to get hold of a full copy of XP off of a friend, as the copy that prob came with your pc will judt format your pc and start again. Dont worry about codes as your should find one at the side of your pc. you just need to make sure you get the right copy i.e. xp home or Pro.

\015\012When you have the disk put it into the pc then reboot, your PC should be set up to boot from CD if it is you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, if not then let me know. you will now get a nice blue install screen up and a few options just carry on (dont select the console recovery as you theres an easyer way). now your PC will start looking for copys of XP installed on your pc, this is where your want to select restore XP (r button).

My Dell Dimension 2400 does not recognize plug & play for my HP OfficeJet Pro L7650 all-in-one. If I add the all-in-one manually, the computer says it's offline.
