    The computer is a Dell Inspiron 531 and will turn on and go to the Dell page then stay there for a short time before going to a page that says this:

    Main processor: amd athlon (tm) 64 x2 dual core processor 4400+
    Memory testing: 2030592k ok+ 64m shared memory (Installed memory: 2097152k)
    DATA 0 :none
    DATA 1 :TSSTcorp DVD+/-RW TS-H653B D200
    DATA 2 :none
    DATA 3 :none
    Diskette drive 0 seek failure

    strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility
    09/06/2007- 1.0.6

    Anything I Seem to do just restarts the computer and ends up back at this page. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Hello Ruffian

    Which OS are you using. If its windows, try to use the windows CD and boot from the CD and try to access the repair function.
