    My xps 410 Dell computer won't turn on. What happens is I turn it on it says to start normally or startup repairs when I click startup repairs it says it can't fix it. When I start normally gets to the multi-colored flag (windows loading screen) and sits there for about 30 seconds to a minute than it either restarts or goes to a black screen and than it has yellow letters surrounded by a small blue rectangle saying "Out of range" I don't know what to do, but what I do know is that I can boot my computer into safe mode which I'm in right now (safe mode with networking) I've tried looking for solutions but can't find any that work please help and thanks. :confused:

    Sounds like you have something trying to load and its chocking the system. In safe mode hit start. At the bottom type msconfig click msconfig.exe Click the services tab, check the box "Hide All Microsoft Services" click Disable All Go to the startup tab and Disable All. Apply changes and restart. Post your results.

    I've done this before trying one more time. The info should be up in around 15-20 mins.

    Sorry, I missed this the first time I read your post "Out of range" This means that the video card is requesting a resolution outside the monitors capacity and can't display. Boot using F8 and select "Enable low-resolution video (640x480)" and try and boot from there. If you get into Windows, change the resolution to say 800x600 or 1024x768 Are able to get in?

    Hello Bradder,
    My name is Krishna and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. I would suggest you to perform a sfc /scannow and see it that helps. For this, Goto Start - type in Search box - COMMAND find at top of list - RIGHT CLICK- RUN AS ADMIN - Type sfc /scannow. A system restore from safe mode is also worth a try.
    If this doesn't help, it may be an operating system corruption. If your restore partition is intact, you should be able to restore your computer's software back to factory settings without using the operating system disk. You can follow the instructions from http://support.dell.com/support/top...=19&l=en&s=dhs&docid=DSN_347576&isLegacy=true

    Regards,
    Dell-Kris K

    I still think its a display issue. Boot back into safe mode and uninstall the video drivers. Restart the system. Please post results.

    Do you have another monitor?

    A picture speaks a thousand words! I took this shot in Safe Mode with Networking as that is where you will be.

    This system came with Vista. Did you upgrade to Windows 7 or did you do a clean install meaning that you blow Vista right off and installed Win7? Do you have the Windows 7 DVD? You can try a Windows 7 Repair Install
