Hello All, and Happy New Year!
I need ideas here.......not sure what to do.
Got a Dell Dimension XPST550 sitting on the bench. The thing sits and spins at the Dell splash screen. Hard drive doesn't move at all, nothing works to get me into bios, no safe mode, 3 1/4 won't work to get a boot disk in it. What the heck do I do?????
Removed the battery to try to reset cmos/bios and nothing. Anyone have any ideas how I am to rescue this thing? Can't get into bios to change boot sequence, hard drive doesn't even spin up. She said it had a virus they tried to fix, hasn't been the same since. Could her board be bad? My son's board was fried by a nasty one, displayed a nice little message before scrambling the bios. These proprietary monsters drive me nuts!
Thanks in Advance,
