F1 To continue freezes

  BADGERSEND 19:56 27 Jun 07

I have a Dell Dimension 9150 which has been giving me problems for a while by, on booting up the second screen asks for 'press F1 key to continue' Pressing the key does nothing and the computer is locked up.
I have tried a re-install Windows XP using the system restore disk provided. I can boot up from that and go through the set up until the computer is restarted. It then locks up as described.

Anyone any idea what might be causing this problem?

Trying to get on to Dell technical is very difficult, if not impossible.
