try tapping f8 on boot up and see if you can get into safe mode.
If you can, try a system restore back to before it stopped working.
try that first

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

This is usually a sign of installing a Driver that is not supported by your OS. Did you just recently install something new on your computer?

Any ways, you can hold the F8 like suggested then select "Last known good configuration" which uninstall the last driver you may have installed that caused this problem.

If that does not work then boot in Safe Mode as suggested and go to you Device Manager and remove the offending driver.

Try the F12 boot options. Either check the BIOS or run the diagnostics. Sounds like it is trying to search for your hard drive.
If there is no diagnostic partition the diagnostics is on your rescourse CD you need to boot to it make sure your CD/DVD drive is set as first boot device. You can also download the diagnostics from dell and put it on a USB stick and boot to it.

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.
