Alright... I'm wondering if anyone has seen this type of thing before. I've got a Dell L800R that has been completely wiped clean for os re-install. When I power up, I hold down the <del> key to enter setup... the dell logo shifts to the top of the screen, the 800mhz processer & 512mb system capabilities declare on screen, and the bottom of the screen reads "entering setup..." this is were the action stops, it never actually enters the setup screen. What do you guys think? Obviously a hardware / memory issue, yes? Thanks in advance for any help on this one...

Got it... incompatible RAM cards. Replaced with the originals and the thing fired right into setup.
