Dimension E521 won't boot
Posted on 2010-11-13
My nephew has a Dell Dimension E521 and it stopped booting. When you turn it on you get a black screen that says:
Phoenix- Award WorkstationBIOS v6.00PG
Copyright (C) 1984-2003, Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Diskette drive 0 seek failure
Press F1 to Continue, F2 to enter setup.
If I click F1 it attempts to start and goes bluescreen with Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78A2528, 0xc)))))34, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
If I reboot and then hit F2 it shows setup but it won't let me select any options (maybe due to the keyboard failure) so I can't select anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
