Dell computer will not boot past first boot screen

  1. Hi, I have an unusual problem with a Dell Desktop. At the location where the computer is assigned (it's a work computer) the computer will not boot past the first Dell boot screen. it is on the screen where it says to Hit F2 for setup, F12 for boot options..etc.. There is a bar that fills up while booting, well this bar never fully fills up it just freezes on this screen.

    If I take the computer to my location the computer boots and runs just fine. I know this other location has had power issues in the past and am thinking it is an issue with the power at the location but none of the other computers at the location are doing this. I have tried several other outlets at the location and same thing happens. Any ideas or has anybody seen anything like this before? thanks..
