Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Laptop ? Hi! Last night we had a power surge @ home & now it will not boot itself back up when I turn it on. It will go through the process but when the desktop should show nothing appears other than the blue screen & cursor. Can you help me?


Answers :

First try to boot in the safe mode, by repeatedly pressing the F8 key. If it boots into the safe mode, press the start button, shut down then select restart. If it will not boot normally then, repeat booting in the safe mode and once booted go to programs/accessorys/system tools/restore the select a restore point date that the computer was functioning correctly and restore for that date. If it will not boot the safe mode restart the computer with the system cd disk and restore from it. BPCS
