Take the side of pc off and locate CMOS battery, 3V disc shaped, and check if not flat as your pc will not start at all if it has lost all settings in bios. If replaced battery and still no luck locate on motherboard 'JBAT1' terminal and put jumper on pins 2-3 then back on pins 1-2. This will clear any faulty cmos settings and require you to set time and date again etc. If you still get no boot up, either the power supply or proccessor is faulty; unfortunately hard to diagnose over the net.

Won't go into sleep mode

Which operating system ?

Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.

This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation.

Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money!

Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow.

The Shut Down menu appears.

Point at "Sleep" and click on this option.

Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode.

Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse.

There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on.

All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode.

Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time.

Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security."

Click "Power Options."

A menu opens.

Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode.

If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity

Your Computer in sleep mode

First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby.

Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered.

Putting Your Computer in Hibernation

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

What does two beeps on a dell Inspiron 530S mean and how do you get it out of power saving mode?

Power off. Wait a full minute. Discharge static from your hands by touching exposed metal part of chassis (case). Open your case and re seat memory chips.

Turn on the computer it goes to window screen and than turn off with out touching anything

so, it automatically shuts down? try turning on your pc and do not wait for it to bbot to windows. instead, immediately tap on F8 key several times as soon as you see that there is power. it should lead you to Windows advanced options menu, highlight disable automatic restart on system failure using your down arrow keys then press enter. it should start normally or if problem still persists, try safe mode instead. it would isolate the issue. if in safemode it will still shutdown automatically then you need to replace your harddrive. if not, then you should just reinstall your operating system to have your system work fine.

Monitor goes into power saving mode when turned on. Doesn't go on when mouse is moved.

It's not on power saving mode, it does not sense that it's already is plugged at your VGA.
The only thing to test it out is to have another monitor/computer *to see which one is not working
But I'm pretty sure that it's a computer problem, Probably a VGA driver problem or a motherboard.
The best way to trace is to have another monitor/computer.

My monitor shuts down after one second.

Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."
