  1. Hi
    I have a Dell Inspiron 5100. It gives problem to Boot. It takes 5 mintes to get booted. Once it is power on, nothing will be displayed, after 5 minutes it try to load Flash BIOS, it reboots manytimes during BIOS load. Once it started windows xp, it works perfectly.

    What is the cause of this and how to rectify.

    Thanks
    Venkat

    Enter the bios setup by pressing key when prompted and set it to load either default or optimum settings.
