Recovering a dell optiplex gx240?

By fry81 ·
I have inherited a Dell Optiplex gx240, and I would like to set up on television as back up computer mostly for media use. I have been unable to get past the Windows XP and Dell startup screens, the computer seems to be looping between the two. Do I need a resource cd and if so where can I get one?

Probably particularly if this is a Software Issue. As for where you get one Dell is the obvious answer they sell Recovery Sets for a nominal Price.

However first thing you should do is load something like the Ultimate Boot CD which is free from here

And run some Diagnostics on the CPU, RAM and Video just to make sure that there isn't a Hardware problem.
