You might have put the computer into hibernate; have you tried pressing the power button? It should wake the computer up if it is asleep or hibernating. It is also possible that your monitor cable is unplugged.

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. 1. Start up your desktop as normal but as soon as it starts keep pressing the 'F8' key. 2. You will have a black background with white writing on and lots of options. 3. Use the up and down arrow keys and select last known good configuration, then press the enter key to select it. philswift_4.jpg
Your computer should start up. If you have a blank screen, do you hear the fans whirring and see lights on the front? If so then your computer works but is not sending s signal out to the monitor. Check all cables to make sure they are securely connected. If you still have no image. Swap your monitor for a friends one that you know works. This will test if it is your monitor that has failed. If you see an image on your friends you will need a new monitor or new monitor cable. If you do not see an image on your friends monitor and your PC has lights and fan whirring then you need to get a new graphics card. If you have no lights and no fan whirring it is outside the scope of this and we need some more information as it could be 1. Failed power supply 2. Failed memory 3. Blown motherboard 4. Failed processor
Please report back with answers to 1. Do you hear fans whirring? 2. Do you see a power light/led light up? (in example pic it is green) 3. Do you see the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) LED/light flash at all? philswift_5.jpg

Many thanks for your information

Does not power up. LED light near plug on on &


trouble shoot it first before we say that it is power supply, disconnect and connect it to ac sourece, press the power button, if no effect, it is power supply, but if the fans work, replace or check the vga cale to monitor, or the monitor itself

Computer monitor don't work at all.


So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

Crackling sound


Make sure you have the right drivers installed by going to this page:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000

Choose your Operating system and then choose audio and download the software and install it.

After that if you still have crackling sounds, then try another set of speakers and if you still have the crackling sounds after replacing the speakers then its a problem with the motherboard cause it has onboard sound. Or you can buy a sound card that goes into a pci slot and install the software for it.

Pc monitor turns on ok then goes to a black screen


The power/inverter board is malfunctioning ... If you feel confident in electronics you can replace the board yourself ... If not then my only advice is either contact support if its in warranty, If not then you might have a hard time getting it fixed, It can be pricey!

My desktop is not centered and the fonts are too big. Also my Start button and bottom toolbar have disappeared.


Sounds like your resolution has been set too low.

Firstly, i'm going to assume you have a 17" LCD monitor, and that you are running Windows XP. (what a guess!) =-]

Generally, you'd want to right-click the desktop in a blank area, select properties. This gives you the display properties. Go to the last tab across called "settings", then under "screen resolution", drag the slider up a notch and hit apply. If it looks right, leave it at that. If it's not quite right, go another notch and apply. Keep going until you have it right.

But on your 17" LCD monitor, running the DVI cable to the PC... the computer should already have detected it's maximum resolution. In this case, you can drag the slider all the way to the right and hit apply, knowing that this is the optimal resolution. Also on your Dell LCD, you should have several buttons for adjusting the screen. One of those buttons is usually a "self-adjust" or "auto detect" or "some other obvious thing" for self-adjusting the screen viewable area. It *should* do this automatically when you change resolutions, which your Dell 173FPb should do anyway. =-]
