Thread: Unable to get past bios screen

    Default Unable to get past bios screen

    Hi to all.

    Used DT LITE for the first time three days ago. Worked great, next morning I booted up my dell d800 only to find that I was staring at a black screen with a minus (hyphen) blinking in the top lef corner of the screen.

    I am unable to get past the BIOS screen. I removed the hard drive and replaced it with a spare that i have of the exact OS, and put the other one in a carriage, booted the PC up with the spare, no problem.

    Checked the faulty hard drive and all programs are still on there, but is not starting the laptop.

    I removed DTlite manually, well i think i have. Still have the same problem. I have been trying to solve the problem by searching similar problems but have come to a stand still at the moment.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Try removing SPTD.

    Try running disk check programs on that hdd.

    If it doesn't get past BIOS screen, then not DT's fault (Windows hasn't even started to load -> no reading of DT's and SPTD's files).
    Make something idiot proof, but then they just make a better idiot
