Having booting up problems

Just yesturday my computer randomly froze up while trying to load up the internet... I had done virus checks earlier that day so i figured it just needed to be restarted... so i turned it off... Now when i try to turn it back on it goes to the dell screen where you can pick boot menu or setup menu... and then it goes to a blank screen with a flashing dash in the top right hand corner... and nothing else happens... It doesn't give me the option to boot in safe mode and do a system restore or anything... Anyone have any ideas??

Re: Having booting up problems

Is your operating system Windows Vista? Do you have a Windows Vista Disc?


If you can find one, you can use it to boot your computer into the setup mode, and then the advanced options and launch system restore.
