whenever i switch on my dell studio 1737 laptop it wont go past the dell logo stage.
any help out there on how to fix the problem?
at the moment i am running a diagnostics test and seems like most devices are passing the test.

It could be any number of things but my first 2 guesses are possibly the hard drive or motherboard.you might want to take it somewhere so that you will get a correct diagnosis.

I dont think flashing the BIOS is a good idea unless theres an update or theres some other urgent reason to do so. if its not done correctly the computer can end up as a very expensive paperweight.i would feel more comfortable at this point in advising him to take it to have it checked out and go from there.
