Ok, so here is the issue. Everytime I boot up this particular Dell It locates everything alright but just as it starts to read the HDD I get this really weird code.
So weird in fact I cannot type the whole thing as I do not know where to find the characters. This is as close as I can get : Bč$ It has a long bar on either side of it and it repeats it twice in a row. Oh and the box is actually solid white and half the size of the funny e. I am at a complete loss. I have changed memory, changed HDD. What else could it be? I can get into the Bios just fine and everything reports as normal. Help.
