    So, I just turned on my laptop and it goes to a screen with the Dell logo, "Studio" undernearth it, and a loading bar.
    The problem is, the loading bar won't fill, no matter what I do! Then after a few minutes, it just goes to a b lack screen!
    It says f2 for setup and f12 for reboot in the corner, but those don't do anything when I hit them!
    Help me?! I just got this laptop a year ago, i'm dead if it stops working.

    I'm having almost the same problem with my Toshiba Notebook at the moment!
    I'm still waiting on advise, but I have managed to get it started by forcing a shut down(press and hold the "on" button for a few seconds until it shuts down) and restarting it after 10-20 seconds) though sometimes I need to do this a number of times before it eventually loads.

    Tap F8 as soon as you power on; you should get a Windows menu with various options. See if you can boot to Safe Mode.

    I tried pressing F8, but like the other Fx buttons, it didn't do anything. :(

    Do you have a Recovery CD or a Repair CD? if yes, try starting your computer with this and see what happens.
