Dell logo then blank screen
\015 Have an older Dell laptop inspiron 1200. Tried to reinstall windows, so right now it has no operating system on it, I can get it to show the dell logo, and I can go to bios. Put in a disk, it says press any key to boot from cd.. do that it shows system is configuring your hardware ( or something like that) then that goes off and it is just a black screen. can't use control f11 because there is no recovery partition. Please help!! I've also taken out the hard drive, the battery.. Cant get the memory out. It is driving me batty!\015
