Hi All
Here is my dilemma
Dell latitude CPx does not boot or go to POST.
At first I was able to boot and the computer would freeze up in the windows.
then I was only able to boot after pressing the power on button 5 or 6 times. and even then it would freeze after a few minutes.
I was able to get to the setup only a few times and have changed the boot sequence to Disk, CD and HD
I can not even get the Dell self diagnostic started.
Only once the diagnostic started but then it froze while loading some file.
I removed the memory, battery, all drives and try starting the computer.
I got the three light sequence that said I have no NVRAM. so I put back the memory card.
Now I get the lights flashin once and the system dies. I may be able to get to post if I try 20 or thirty times pressing the power on button. Please Help I am willing to try anything Dell support has put me on the eternal hold.:mad:
PS. How can I reset the bios?

Thank you

Hi dudem

If your Laptop is under warranty I would stay with the Dell support. It sounds like the motherboard, memory, or processor may be shot or may require reseating. Have you tried powering up the PC with the battery removed, using only the AC adaptor for power? Usually Dell support is pretty fast.
