My new Precision 390 wont boot-up - it doesnt get beyond the Dell logo page (which displays "BIOS Revision 1.0.5"). The Dell log screen disappears after 2 seconds, then comes back after 3 seconds then disappears again, comes back, goes etc., etc.,
There are no diagnostic beeps to report, and the diagnostic lights are changing the whole time ( until I install the diagnostic cd when they settle).
Ive run the diagnostic tests from the CD (cant do it from Hard Drive) and no faults to report.
Is Windows installed on the machine? Im not sure. Theres a windows logo on the tower! Anyway, I stuck in an XP disc to see if I could do something but nothing happens.
Re: My new Precision 390 wont boot-up - help please
Unplug all devices and cables from the PC except for the power cord, monitor, keyboard and mouse. and try to boot. If it does, then you have to plug things back in 1 at a time and try to boot, untill you find the one that is causing this condition.
