Does the F12 key allow you to run diagnostics on the system now?
Thanks for the quick response Louis!
I am able to run Dell Diagnostics using the Utility CD and booting it from there. The computer passed the Memory tests fine. I ran the Express Test under the Test System options and everything passed. Tried the Symptom Tree option, passed all tests under "Cannot Boot the OS" option. Passed everything except the "No Sound or Audio" test, probably due to the lack of hardwares, and the "Cannot Read or Write to My Diskette", failing on the Diskette Drive Seek Test.
In order to keep my situation updated, I also followed these instructions from a Dell representative on their Support forums:
* Power the PC off
* Open the PC cover
* Disconnect the power and data cables from the hard disk drive
* Power the PC on, then off
* Reconnect the power and data cables to the hard disk drive
* Power the PC on
* Press F2 to enter the Bios System Setup
* Is the hard disk drive listed?
Unfortunately, I'm still having the same problem.
I'm running Diagnostics again, this time Custom tests. Again, everything passed except the Audio and Diskette tests.
I'm initiating the Extended Tests now, I'll edit the post with results once it's finished.
