Dell won't power up all the way

I haven't used this for a couple of months as I got a new computer. So, I plug this one in and it won't power up all the way. The screen shows the page with the word DELL in big blue letters and a bar underneath that does not completely turn white.....as you can tell I am a senior citizen without much knowledge of computers. Is there suppose to maybe be another power cord..one with an adapter?

Hi Yankybajan,

Make sure that you have plugged correctly your computer to power source. Verify that no more power cable is needed, sometimes screen and computer have separate power cable, they all need to be plugged to a power source.
Once everything is correctly plugged, be sure to press on the power up button of your computer.

Let me know if it works or not.

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

Dell 4600 won't power off


The power button not tunring off your computer could be down to the operating system settings. To check/changes this go to Start > Control panel > Power. Once in the power control panel look a the top left corner you should see "Change what the power button on my computer does".
As for the Beeps, if these beeps occurred when the computer was running this may indicated the cooling fan on the processor has stopped functioning, is not fuctioning correctly or the thermal compound below the heat sink needs to be renewed.

If the beeps are accurring when the computer is starting up they usualy indicated a CPU, RAM or graphics card fault. Please note thought that one beep is usually normal.
It will be a process of elimination, start with the ram, try a stick of known good ram, reseat the processor and renew thermal paste, remove the grpahics card and try another or switch to the integrated graphics card if your motherboard has one built in, though personally I would pull the card and insert another.

Shut off won't turn back on


how long have you waited since it shut off? it may be overheating. if you've waited for a while and it still won't power up, you may need to test the power supply. if you don't have a power supply tester and most people don't you can remove it from the case and take it to any pc shop. they may charge you a couple bucks but most shops won't do that. if it's bad it will need replaced obviously, if it's not let us know :)

The Dell Mini-Tower Studio computer won't turn on? This occurred about 4 months ago it did the same, then all of a sudden we pushed the button and it turned on.


The power source is failing - it will have to be replaced. You can find a generic 400 watts one in almost every shop that sells pc's. Installing it is easy - the cables plug only the right way.

Plug the monitor into another computer to determine if the monitor is damaged or working properly. You can also plug another monitor into your computer to determine the same thing.

ALIENWARE DESKTOP LOST ALL POWER


In a laptop, you can lose power in three ways.
1. Dead battery 2. Dead Power cord. 3. Bad motherboard.
ther first two should be rather obvious, as the battery won't work or it won't hold a charge, but if it won't turn on at all, even while plugged in, chances are that you're going to need a new motheboard. This can be expensive in the M--x laptops, unfortunately.
Sorry for the bad news, mate.

My daughter has a new ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB, and after a couple months use it will no longer power on.


Hi,

Try this >>>>

Remove AC power and take out the battery.
Plug the AC power back in and see if it will switch on. If it does shut it back down again and re-insert the battery. Try turning the computer on.

If you get no life from the computer either with or without the battery then this computer has to be sent back to Asus for repair or replacement as there will be still warranty on the computer.


Regards.

Dell Dimension 8200 won't power up


If the power button does not light up at all, I would guess the power supply has a problem.
