Okay, so a while ago my dell crashed. BSOD, the whole nine yards. Then i turned it on just today (thinking it was an OS crash) to install fedora 12 on it, but windows came on (surprise!), and so i decided to uninstall some programs i NEVER use, like aol and kodak software frome 2004. this was all fine and dandy until i was prompted to restart. this was going okay for about 2 times, but on the 3rd time, i got a screen that showed the dell logo, and then it went black and displayed the text : In addition, the lights are 3 green, 1 orange. At dell.com, they give a guide for what this means, and this is the only combo that says "Other Failure". Ergh! >:-X This is so amazingly confusing, please help. UPDATE: okay, this is getting very confusing! sometimes it's all green, sometimes it's 3 green 1 orange!
