Specs: Windows 7
Dell 546 will not go into windows during startup. When power button pushed, fan runs hard for about a second, then the computer just sits there with the power button lit ... but no windows screen.

Did you Create system recovery disc ? That would have been one way.
When you turn the power on start tapping the F8 key to see if you can
get into Safe Mode. Reply back.

Thanks cboy. I have a recovery disc and I'll keep your Safe Mode technique in reserve if the problem recurs. Meanwhile I unplugged everything that was attached to the computer including the power plug. About three hours later, after finishing some chores, I plugged in the power, keyboard and mouse. I punched the power button and the darn thing booted right up and popped into Windows without so much as a hiccup.

Thanks again for the help. At least now I have something else to try if my cure isn't as permanent as I hope it is.
