  • With this and the other posted problem you have, I would suspect the Operating System is corrupted and you will have to reinstall.  The Dell PC Restore is on the hard drive, accessed by F8 at POST (Power On Self Test).  first suggestion is to use the PC Restore and restore the PC to the original factory condition.  If this does not help, or if you don't want to do this, then contact Dell support, it is in warranty,.
