Hope for the best and assume that some files got corrupted at the time of the power failure. So try getting into BIOS, the objective being doing something besides putting in a PCI Card with USB ports or buying another motherboard.

Shut down and/or restart the computer.\015\012

\015\012\015\012When the DELL logo appears, press <F12> immediately.

When the boot device list appears, highlight CD/DVD/CD-RW and press \015\012<Enter>.

1. Select the Boot from CD-ROM option from the menu that appears and \015\012press <Enter>.

2. Type 1 to start the CD menu and press <Enter> to proceed.\015\012
