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?

Computer won't come on. light is blinking in back of hard drive.


Try unplugging from wall socket then press on button (this clears out extra electricity in PC). Plug back in then try to turn on again. If PC is older, try blowing out the dust inside tower especially around the CPU fan.

Power button not turning computer on


this is most likely a short in a computer component, You need to unplug everything from the computer incl CPU, Memory, Add on Cards, Hdds, the lot, just have motherboard plugged in and push power, if it powers up (there won't be a pic but you will know it's working) start replacing parts one by one until it won't start and that is the faulty part. If it does nothing with just motherboard plugged in the motherboard is at fault and needs to be replaced, If you have had the motherboard out make sure no of the metal mounts in the case are shorting out anywhere under the motherboard as this will also cause the same fault.

It won 't turn on


check your power cords, check your outlets, check your surge protector, check the switch on the back of the pc. there may be a black toggle switch with a circle and a line, make sure it's flipped to the line side. if all that is normal, unplug the cord from the computer and open up the case. look at all your power plugs and make sure they're all secure, try and reseat the 1 or 2 main plugs, there should be a rectangular 12 pin plug and maybe a 4 pin plug. unplug them and then plug them back in. put the case back together plug it in, and give it a go. if still nothing then you have to troubleshoot whether the power supply is junk or if your motherboard died. we'll move on to that if it comes up. good luck!

The computer won't turn on


You could be having any of several problems.

First double check to make sure no cords came loose - you may even want to unplug and replug the power cable both out of the computer and the wall.

If you do not have a loose cord, listen closely when you attempt to turn the computer on - is it making any noise? Do any lights come on? If not, you likely have a bad power supply.

If the computer does come to life, just no reaction on the screen, make sure your monitor is plugged in and turned on, and try unplugging and replugging the cord connecting the computer and the monitor.

If this still does not get it, you may be dealing with either a graphics card or monitor problem. If you have an alternate plug for the monitor to go - try that, or if you have a different monitor to use, try that.

This should either greatly narrow down or fix the problem for you.

My gateway profile 5 won't turn on. Checked plugs


Try to power drain it. Unplug all the power related devices that are connected, like a monitor data cable or external printer, just unplug all the cables in the back after you shut down your computer, press the power switch of your computer and keep it pressed for about 45 secs, release it, plug everything back and check it if its working. As well double check if that particular socket is usable, plug something else in to see if its working.

How to fix aopen F75PS Display Power Light Blinking, Display Won`t come on.


A blinking power light typically means there is no signal from the video card, so check the connections and try another monitor (or plug the monitor into another computer) first to see if the video card is perhaps the real culprit.
