Hi, in preparation for windows 10 I thought I would update a few things on my Dell Precision T5500 desktop windows 7 home edition 64 bit computer. One of those was a bios update, and all went well until the first reboot when the computer started and stopped about 10 times before finally booting into windows. I tried system restore which wouldn't restore and finally did a complete reinstall of windows 7. Still the same problem, starting and stopping 10 times before bootup. Seems like computer is searching for something and is going through a process to find it. Everything else is working perfectly except for this one annoying problem and any help would be very much appreciated, Thanks

Unfortunately, a BIOS update has nothing to do with Windows. You may be able to correct the problem by re-updating your BIOS, but otherwise you will need to get in touch with Dell quoting you TAG number.
