RE: boot up

What happens when you push the power button without unplugging it? Any signs of "life"?

When was last time you replaced motherboard battery?

RE: boot up

When I turn it on, the Dell LOGO appears and the small wheel below shows, turning for a moment, then the screen goes blank. The light on the power button stays on.

RE: boot up

What color Is the power button and is it steady or does it give a "blink code"?

Reboot and IMMEDIATELY press F2 to open BIOS setup. Look for the Secure Boot option and if it's enabled, disable it.

Do not change anything else in BIOS setup, but be sure to save the change to Secure Boot -if you made one- before exiting setup.

RE: boot up

I changed the "secure Boot" to disable as suggested but to no effect. I still can't boot my computer constantly.
