Re: Boot problem - Optiplex 755 stuck btwn Dell splash & Win XP splash

 PC may now be seeing either the network or the USB drive as part of the boot sequence.    From the manual (linked further below), the most obvious settings I can see are:

- Boot Sequence:  Make sure either Hard Drive or CD ROM is set first - not USB or Network/NIC.

- Onboard Devices - check the USB Controller for a "no boot" option

- Power Management - Remote Wakeup settings.   If it's set to "On with Boot to NIC"  try turning it off.

More info on BIOS settings below (Dell calls it "System Setup"):
