Dell Studio XPS 435MT
I was just surfing youtube when my cpu just turned off unexpectedly. There was no warning that the computer was shutting down or anything, and we had power because my monitor was still on, so it wasn't the power going out.
When I turned the cpu on again, my computer will go through where you can press f2 and f12 keys. After that it's stuck on the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD......" If I press a key before the final dot, I can boot from the installation disk... If I don't have the installation disk inside, it's just stuck with a blinking cursor. I've tried to wait it out for 10 minutes or so and still nothing happens.
I tried to do the start up repair from the installation disk but no errors were detected. I tried multiple system restores and it wouldn't get fixed. I tried to remove all USB connected because maybe it tried to boot from that but it didn't work. Without the installation disk in, I can't go through safe mode when I press f8. With the disk in, when I try to go through safe mode by pressing f8 it'll go to the screen with the options but if I choose any option from there it just does the same thing like what it does with the installation disk but it has Safe Mode written on the sides of the screen.
I tried googling solutions (which led me to this forum actually) and didn't really feel like going through their steps because I don't think I had the same exact problem as those people.
I've always fixed my own computer by just googling solutions but this is the worst of all. I usually fix any problem within a couple of hours but this is just pissing me off because I can't even go to safe mode. I had to use my mom's Mac laptop to type this thread up.
I really hope there are no hardware errors here. I can't afford to buy anything. D:
Please help and thank you.
