Re: Dell Latitude E6430 Not booting no post

You stated that it would not post but I see that you were able to press F12 for a list of boot options. Have you tried F12 and instead of boot options, chose diagnostics? If you are able to do that run full system diagnostics. Going form RAID to AHCI can make Windows unbootable, see the following link below. Have your tried to reset the BIOS by removing the CMOS (coin cell ) battery for at least 15 minutes (Intel suggests 30 minutes) then reinserting the battery and trying again. The battery led is the diagnostic light. If the CPU were failing you would get that led blinking 2 times amber then 1 time white.



Latitude diagnostic indicators.
