Can you post the MB details so that I can do some research, brand name, model and any revision number, look by the CPU, between the PCI slots and around the edge of the MB for this information.

Go into the BIOS and make sure that acip is enabled, save the settings and exit.
windows failed to load because the firmware (bios) is not acip compatible

Link integrity light (on integrated network adapter)
green light — A good connection exists between a 10-Mbps network and the computer.
orange light — A good connection exists between a 100-Mbps network and the computer.
yellow light — A good connection exists between a 1-GB (1000-Mbps) network and the computer.
Try navigating through the BIOS until you find the acip facility, possibly in the advanced settings.
Can I ask again whether you have the OS or system recovery disk as it may be required.

Its a xps 630i and where would I disable that at? What sectio
This should be set to enabled not disabled otherwise it will prevent the computer from booting.
Set the boot sequence to CD/DVD drive first and the HDD second and save the settings also have
you reset the time and date since you cleared the CMOS, http://support.dell....p.htm#wp1163484

I've got it all better. Thanks to you. you were a huge help. Pretty sure it boiled down to a bad stick of ram. :/ lol. But now I've got 4gigs... installed/updated graphics drivers. And even cleaned up the inside, and out for all of my troubles. cleaned up the homescreen and is now defraging. She'll be a very happy computer in the morning. Thanks again for all of the help, phill.
Thank you Evan Shaw for posting back with such a grateful response, you yourself have played a major part in identifying the Ram as the cause of the issue and I merely assisted you which has been a pleasure, please let us know if we can be of any assistance in the future, possibly with a Ram upgrade
