My 530 boots up sometimes and when a usb device is attached the screen goes black. Holding the power button shuts the system down but when it is pressed again the green light comes on for as long as the button is pressed but goes out when the button is released anmd the PC won't boot.

You could have a corruption in the script or a process that won't stop. Try holding down on the power button until the screen goes dark and all lights go out. That is a hard shut down without saving settings. After it shuts down (finally) power it back up. Hit the F8 key on your keyboard the moment your machine goes to the black screen before it can load windows. That is the safe mode. Move the highlight up to safe mode or safe mode with networking and allow it to continue to boot up. Then, when it's completed the process and windows displays that it is in safe mode, do a normal restart. That should resolve the issue.
It is often caused by a hardware failure. The first thing to do is make sure you do not have any USB memory stick type devices plugged in. Computers don't like them plugged in while starting. If still no good, unplug all of the devices attached except for the monitor. By this I mean the keyboard, mouse, ANY USB DEVICES/ but leave the monitor plugged in. Try starting again. If it boots into windows normally, press the power button on the computer to make it shut down again, then plug each thing in one by one and repeat to see which is holding it up. If it still won't get past the BIOS screen, you have an internal problem in the computer box itself. Hope this helps
hi there, here are possible solutions to your issue
1. make sure first that your computer would be able to identify your harddrive. you can check this one by going to the setup utility page. upon pushing the power button quickly tap the F1 key or F2 key. then check your Harddrive if motherboard was able to detect it.
2. make sure that there is now usb flash drive or external drive attached to your usb ports when booting up your computer. sometimes if you have this devices attached to your usb this error happens when booting up.
3. Power on the computer and keep on tapping F8 key the moment you push the power button. select safe mode once oyu enter the black screen. if same error occured. then, ou need to use the recovery disk that came with the system and restore the computer back to original factory settings.
Sometimes when you use ram sticks on some older computers they do not handle taking teh ram stick out of the USB port without first closing out teh device OR if you have the RAM stick in while you are booting the machine... it will select the ram stick as the boot device and appear there is no oprerating system present.
In you case when you go to the boot menu.. be sure the boot menu is set to select the hard drive as the primary boot device. If it is not then you can make the change at teh bott up screen.
press and hold the center joystick button, and the volume down buttons.
dont leave those two!
and now power on the device. wait for a gray screen asking you to make a clean boot. press the volUP or volDOWN button and after about 5 minutes your device will make an hard reset (clean boot) and will restore it to factory settings.
Go into bios by pressing F2 on boot and make sure that usb support is enabled. If it is then boot and go to device manager and uninstall the usb devices, then try to reinstall. Instead of just updating the drivers.
Some USB devices seem to cause this problem. I've had it myself. USB devices when hooked up cause the computer to freeze as it hard for USB drivers to be loaded outside of windows. Try updating you windows thru windows update though even updated I still run into the problem sometimes. If updating dosen't work you need to keep the drive unhooked while booting then hook up in windows.
