Hi Everyone, I would appreciate any help with a problem I am having with a Dell XPS M2010 that belongs to a friend. It worked well for about 14 months and then started acting flaky. The system would freeze (no response from mouse or keyboard) and then on reboot would not display anything. I have been through this cycle several times. I am not sure what causes it to recover. Details: Works fine running XP sp2 then freezes. Power off and reboot - lights cycle through, the disk light comes on for a second then goes off. The power light and bluetooth light stay on. After a few seconds the keboard lights come on and go off. I currently have the XP re-install CD inserted so it spins up and then shuts down. There is no display at all. Several times I have left it on with and without the battery to come back later and find it booted into windows. I have run the full diagnostics several times but they fail in random places. Typically gets through the cpu and mem tests and stops responding during video or keyboard test. It appears it is the freezing problem. POST seem to be running but there is no display. I pulled the ram and then power on light cycle stops in the middle - put the ram back in and it completed the cycle. I have reseated the video card and disk. During one of the times that it booted I got a blue screen with ati2dvag.dll infinite loop problem. I found a workaround (thanks Cobrakaun ) but cannot get it booted again to try it. The last few times it booted I was getting an error while Sonic (dvd?) tried to update drivers but it couldn't find the disk that was never included (thanks Dell). Any help would sure be appreciated before this beast becomes a boat anchor! Thanks.
