Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Power failure During a rain storm the power in my neighborhood went out for about 30 minutes. There was no lightning, just wind. When power was restored, my computer would not turn on at all (nothing happens when I press the power button on the front). I checked the outlets, power strip and power cord. I plugged the computer directly into the wall and changed the power cord...nothing. Do you think I could get this fixed? Thanks. Lisa

    Thank you for your suggestions. I have already tried them. It appears I need a new power supply.

By plugging it directly into the wall... what was it plugged into before. and have you actually taken some other electrical device and plugged it in to make sure the wall socket is still live.
there is also a reset button on most power strips... it may have tripped.

Try those and let us know.

What your describing is symptoms of a power surge, Many LCD Tv's are sensative to Slight fluctuation in power during rain, thunder and lightning storms, i myself was happily watching Tv through such a storm at one time, and when i went to bed the TV would not respond remotely or manually, i also disconnected the power from the wall waited for the ready light to disolve and try to turn on, unfortunatley the damage was done, a Tv Repair was nessecary and since then i now use a belkin power surge protector board for my TV and appliances......one question to you is i would guarantee you do not use a surge protection my friend......and your set will need a Tv Repair, it is not major as what is neccesary is a firmware dump on the internal memory and replace the BIOS Battery as well.

Hitachi 46w500 went off tonight during storms, low voltage, wont turn back on


There might be a failure on the power supply or horizontal section of the TV even if you see some light inside the TV. Some of the voltages could be missing and that is why the TV fails to power up.
If you know how to use a multimeter, you could check all the fuses from your power supply.
Unplug your TV from the main AC line if you intend to do it yourself.
You will know how much you can do or it might safer to contact a tech.
Let me know if you need further assistance

How do i stop lightning from getting in my hdmi lines and shocking my tv? 5 tvs went down in one storm


I would recommend getting a surge protector and using that to protect your televisions. This usually will stop something the lightning from killing your tv's.. I have a surge protector and can still use my tv, computer, anything I have plugged in during a storm.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

Power surge in the neighborhood, due to rain storm, caused the unit to not turn on compressor. Fan works but compressor will not turn on


can be failure of the starterr relay which is coupled with the compressor. remove and check, if bad replace. If power goes to click in the relay and the compressor does not work then it is the failure of the compressor.
Estimate the cost of overhauling to the cost of a new one. make sure that power is on to the compressor before it can be confirmed.
Also checck the resistance from the outside and if there is coil leaking or open. check the capacitor also which can be faulty and will not start the compressor.

My tv went dead during a lightning storm. I heard


The sound could have come from one of your power capacitors. You could tell if one of them is no longer operational by looking at them; they will be burned, or blistered, or will be bulging. If this is a CRT type of TV ensure that you only look inside if you are fully aware of how to deal with the lethal voltages that are stored on the inside of the unit.

HP a450n stays in a loop after thunderstorm


Hi,
This often happens during a storm and usually is quite an easy fix.
Remove the power cord, from the back of the computer, with the back of the computer facing towards you, on the right hand side there should be 2 screws top and bottom, remove these screws and take off the side panel.
Inside the case, on the motherboard you will see a large battery, take that battery out and leave it out for 30 minutes.
Now, remove the system memory, the memory will look like this >>>>>

Just unclip the memory, get a clean, dry, soft paintbrush and clean the brass contacts on the memory with that.
If there is any dust on the slots that you took the memory out of clean them also.
Wait for 30 minutes, reinsert the memory making sure it clips into place properly, put back the battery, the side panel, the power cord and power the machine on.
When the system boots up you will get a CMOS error, don't worry about that just go into the BIOS and set the time and date, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and hopefully boot into Windows.
If you need anymore advice please post back.


Good luck.

Screen froze during lightning storm. no picture now. When powering on screen lights and then dims - no picture, no sound


You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!
