when it was working, my inspiron presented one of those screens saying "encountered problem, if this is first time..." well, soon screen would not turn on, and now any attempt to re-boot lights lights, fan whirs, but all stops after about 4 seconds. Any ideas?
Well, as it turned out, we contacted Dell who had us reload the operating system. I actually turned it over to some of our IT folks so I don't know how they were able to keep it on long enough to do anything. Kirk
