Is the harddrive running?

by fwang In reply to dell problems

Can you boot with floppy or CD? If you can, do so and then check if you can access to your hard drive.

If you can't, see if you can change the boot sequence from BIOS setup. (Press DEL when boot)

Video BIOS and cursor

With just the video BIOS displaying and nothing else, it sounds like maybe the mother board has failed. After the video BIOS loads and displays it's memory, the CPU should boot and count it's memory.
