Read part 2 Scott thanks.


I did found something that is bad. I ran the Crystal Disk Info and its in the yellow caution.

Health status

Reallocated sectors count

Could this be the cause of it for the computer not to boot up as soon as I press the power button on.

the brand is a Samsung H080HI 80GB hard drive and it is a Sata.

It is entirely possible for a failing HDD to cause boot failures. What happens when you replace the drive with a known-good spare? Scott.

It is possible for the RAM to be bad even though it passes tests. The only way to verify for sure is to replace it and re-test. Virtually anything else connected to the motherboard (or the board itself) could also be the cause. I doubt it is the CPU but even that is possible. I would remove and reinstall it to renew the contacts, unless you had an identical or compatible one to use for testing. The more components you can disconnect and still test the system to see if the symptom remains the more you can narrow it down. Scott.

I give up on it

going to take it out to my dad's farm and give it a farewell with the shotgun.
going to save the hard drive the dvd-rom the wireless card the screen and the and the heat sink and the fan.


the rest will be done with the shotgun.

maybe even save the lcd screen.



R.I.P
2007-2015. DELL AT 8 YEARS OLD WITH WINDOWS VISTA.

I don't have any other parts like cpu or another video card to try. so i guess i'll just have to let that computer go and

call it the end of the dell laptop computer.....

Post some before/after pictures if you can! I bet the execution will be quite satisfying. <g> Scott.

Over the years I've encountered several computers I've wished to execute in that manner. Most of the time it was due to Microsoft and/or Adobe software instead of the hardware. But I still wanted the hardware to suffer since you don't get much satisfaction from blowing up a CD, and even less from deleting a file. <g> Scott.

It might be the motherboard or anything connected to it including the video, RAM, HDD, etc. Scott.

I have came to a clue that it is the video card that is going bad. I have to do one more test just to make sure. What I think it is doing that the video card is not loading the display right away What i'm going to do is unplug the laptop screen from the motherboard and plug in a monitor into the VGA port and just to see if that is it. I think it would be it because there is nothing more that could be wrong with it.
