Dell E520 Never Gets Past Windows XP Splash Screen... HELP!!
by DrunkMonk420 - 8/2/11 5:55 PM
I need some help, PLEASE!
My computer has always worked perfectly for the last 5 years and while I
know it is outdated by new computers standards I have always formatted
my hard drive once a year and re-installed things just to keep it fresh.
Now I'm having a serious problem... I haven't had access to my computer
for about 1 year due to studying abroad and I KNOW no one else has used
it, it was simply stored away waiting for me to come back home. Well,
I've just come back and now when I turn my computer on I get nothing! It
just sits at the Windows XP splash screen and never loads the OS. I
have it hooked up to a reliable power source and I even did an XP Repair
install, just in case and I still am getting nothing!
Can someone PLEASE help me? I really need to access my hard drive,
everything was on there. What could be the problem? I ran the Drivers
& Utilities cd and ran a OS doesn't load test and a regular system
test and get no errors... what is happening? can someone PLEASE help me?
Thank you very much for any and all help!
