Dell laptop XPSM 1330
Vista home
Sorry cant provide more specs due to the problem... :P And it belonds to my nephew...
Originally the computer would hang on the bootup screen. If you do a hard shutdown, when you attempt to re-boot it will go to the boot options screen... ex. start windows normally, last know configuration and so on...
Regardless of which option was choosen it would hang again...no matter how long you let it attempt to boot it would just sit there....
He did tell me that he recieved some errors codes as follows..

2000-0333 2000-142

So I bring the computer home with me and when I get here the puter will do nothing...

I plugged it in and hit the power button ...
the light will come on for about 5 seconds and turned off...

What i have tried to this point....


Is removing the power supply and battery and let it sit for a long period of time while at work

plug it back up... at which time the fan started... (I didnt press no buttons,)
the fan continue to run until I removed the cord....
It would not power on...


Any suggestions?

Sounds more of a failing or dead laptop. Got one here with the same problem. Tried removing memory module, network card just to check on any difference. Check those first.

You replaced the hard drive, is that what you mean? Is everything running ok now?
