Angry Inspiron Mini 10 Will Not Boot. using the FN - 01-05-2010, 11:06 AM

The laptop will not boot atall - there is nothing on the screen but it does give a few beeps when it tries to start. I tried conecting an external monitor but nothing shows on it either. It was working OK running XP. I removed the disk and it works fine connected to another PC. I came across a message using Google that mentioned using the FN key and End to recover from BIOS upgrade problems. Is there a complete list of instructions on how to recover from the problem I have encountered? Thanks in advance for any replies to this message.

How many beeps? This is probably indicating the error code which then should be able to be found on Dells support site.
