re Start up problem on Dell Laptop

Hi

Would be interesting on hearing any theories.

Our Dell laptop is playing up off/on.

When you switch on, the start up ribbon moves across and either sticks or
moves onto the starting sequence of Windows XP.

When it sticks the only option seems to tap F2 or F12 and wait quite a few
minutes.

The fact that you do not know if the machine is going to fully start up is
bloody frustrating !!!!!!!!!

Thanks



Dee
