Hello,
Try this 1
1) When you switch ON your laptop, start tapping the "F8" key to get "Startup Settings" options ( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep tapping the F8 key)
2)Select the option "Safe Mode".
If the problem still exists then try step 1 and this time select the option "Safe Mode with Command Prompt".
Let me know if you are able to boot into it.
Good Luck

Hi SUNFLOWERLADY62,

It has been correctly suggested by jack4rall to try to boot to Safe Mode/Safe Mode With Command Prompt. If the computer enters the Safe Mode/Safe Mode With Command Prompt we can try several troubleshooting steps. However, to eliminate any possibility of any Hardware failure, please run "Dell 32-bit Diagnostics". Click here to find steps on how to run "Dell 32-bit Diagnostics".
