Yes, that is what I see, when I say POST, I mean the screen that shows a readout while it is checking all hardware, like Ram, Keyboard, Mouse, Hard drive e.t.c. What's happening here is that when I press the pc power button, the Dell logo comes up on a balck and blue screen then it goes almost immediately to the screen in your pic above, with XP the POST screen would be shown "bewteen" the Dell logo and the XP window, that POST screen is what I don't see, hope this explains it better.
That's the strangest or weirdest pc name I have ever come across
. [Definitely NOT an insult by any means!]. No, I don't see anything like that except to press F8 to go to the DOS screen but definitely no POST screen.
I would like to know how to view the POST screen.
