This will show you exactly what is happening when I try and boot my friend's laptop.
I swapped the memory and hard drive but that didn't help.
I tried booting it with and without a battery as well.
I ran the internal Dell diagnostics with extended memory test but everything passes.
The system will boot occasionally so it's not completely shot but it's a bust about 75% of the time.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
