Inspiron 1501 wont boot up turns on and sounds like its start the cd rom starts but nothing comes up on screen but a brief letter and number code to fast to catch then nothing just a gray screen~ any thoughts? thanks, J.


Answers :

Have you tried booting into safe mode or last known good configuration?

You can access the windows boot menu by pressing/tapping the F8 key as the computer as it boots.

If none of those allow windows to boot and you still can't see the error message, I suggest reinstalling your OS over the copy that is already installed.

Please let us know if this solves your problem or if you would like further assistance.
