I have a Dell XPS M1210. I have been reading the forums trying to gather ideas that I could use to fix my computer.
The problem: When I start the computer the screen stays black, the Power LED stays lit showing that it is indeed turned on, and the LED that shows that the hard drive is being accessed turns on for only a short period of time. The computer stays at this screen and does not boot anything.
I've taken out the CMOS batter and let it sit for 10 minutes to see if resetting the BIOS would work, but it didn't. I've tried the holding down the power button for 30 seconds too. I have even taken out the hard drive and other components to see if it would boot without; doing my best to narrow down what is wrong. It still does not work. Any ideas?
