It's trying to boot from the LAN. Don't ask me why but it's got it into it's little brain that it needs to boot from the LAN before anything else. When it can't get a valid operating system image over the network, it gives up and reboots with that error message.

Happily the solution is pretty simple. Go into the bios by tapping F10 when you first turn the power on. From there go to the System Configuration, and into the Boot Options. If you still don't have a viable operating system, it's necessary to set the CD Rom as the first boot device, so it will read a Windows disk. Makes sure CD-ROM Boot is set to Enabled and Network Adapter Boot is set to DISABLED. Then set the boot devices in the following order:

ATAPI CD/DVD Rom Drive
Notebook Hard Drive

- all the other options can be in any order, just make sure these two are at the top.

Pop in a Windows disk or your system restore disk and it should go through fine.

You need to tear it apart down to the heat sync and then remove the processor cover and get the crusted thermal glue off of the processor i had the same problem and then put it all back together should be good you can probably run it w/o any thermal glue

Crash. again. Hi, I purchased a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop last year for school. This is my story, hopefully you'll have some expert advice for me...

But that turned out to be the least of my problems. The laptop in general takes forever to start up and
