I was hoping someone could give me some insight ot at least steer me in the right direction.I have a Dell Latitude D610 that when powered on displays the Dell splash screen then goes to a blank screen with a cursor that momentarily appears in the upper left.I Can access Dell diagnostics,bios settings,boot sequence from the splash screen but all hardware tests seem to pass.Cannot invoke F8 at startup to get into safe mode.Numlock stays on through startup.Tried to boot from reinstallation cd but only get as far as checking system configuration then reverts back to blank screen.There are no error or beep codes present,
other than the battery light flashing from orange to green while the battery is inserted.Diagnostics show it at 95 % charged.Have same boot problems whether the battery is in or out so I dont think the problems are related.
