Try to shutdown the system and remove the power cord, after you remove it press the power button for 5-10 seconds and then check support.dell.com site for bios updates, and double check your power options.

If you reformatted the hard drive, you have erased everything. If you have restore or backup disks use them now.

How do i get my dell dimension 3100 to play dvd's and dvd-r's sonic cineplayer doesn't want to do anything for me


Try the Open Source VLC player software (from videolan)

If still no luck, chances are it's your DVD drive (you do know you only get 3 changes of 'Region Code' before it locks up ?)

Dell 3100 will not power up


Hardware issues: (most likely the motherboard)

Start by removing:
Ram Chip one by one. See if it will change anything (if it doesn't put that back in)
Cd Drive
Hard drive
Anything else (video card, PCI components)

Dell Dimension 4300 desktop screen goes black after windows splash screen appears. Have reseated RAM.


After hitting the power button on your computer, throw it into "BOOT MODE" and select your hard drive. See if this helps your computer load. If so, you will have to go into your BIOS Setup and make your current hard drive your Primary Boot Device.


If this doesn't help, load your restore disc and check your drive for errors.

Your problem shouldn't be anything more than a few registry errors OR a boot problem.

My dell dimension has gone to sleep mode by it self, and now it does not go on?? tried to take out the power cord and start but straight away it goes to sleep mode??

When the system is going back into sleep mode what color is the power button flashing. It should like the system my not be going into sleep mode but have a more serious problem.

Also let me know what you see on the screen as you turn on the system.

Another thing to try is after you unplug the system hold down the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. This will reset the power state of the system. Note if you have the system plugged into a power strip you will want to reset the power strip too.

Dell DimE310 wont reeboot


You should be able to get a start up software that is a portable software that can reside on a usb stick. Hunt for this software using google. Call out for a portable xp or what ever OS system ... and you can use this as a startup. When it does start up go to safe mode and resolve the hard drive errors with trojan virues or defrag, then use error professional pro to clear out dll and other problems. Most times all the problems are found it the unused program paths and other internet cookies and affliates thet go along with the rest of the errors. You can also get Regcure, this is also a good system problem solver. This softwae really works.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode


Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.

Hi I have a 2 year old dell Desktop Dimension 3100 and I cant sort out a RunDLL error /32 all the registry fixes I've tried R useless,many thanks


Rundll32 is a process that is needed by your operating system to run properly, If this is corrupted, then some of your major processes fails as well. What I can recommend is for you to repair your operating system using your windows cd. (not reformat)

when you reach the drive selection (where you can see what drive the windows installed) you can press "R" for repair. It will automatically repairs you Windows without modifying your settings, installed programs, just as it was.

If you have problems doing this, you tell me.
