Dell Dimension E510 won't allow me into set up

Neighbor gave me this computer. It was just used for poker agmes and the such. It's infected with all types of spyware, adware, and trojans. I tried to get into setup to set the machine to boot from cdrom drive, but it wont allow me in. It acts as if it's going to go in, then skips, and continues to boot normally. Of course with all the garbage popping up all over the place. I would love to be able to just format the 160G hard drive and reload XP PRO, and office 2003. Please help

    Watch when it begins to boot for a Recovery or Restore selection with one of the "F" buttons.



    Have you tried to boot into Safe Mode? Press F8 as it begins to boot. You should get a boot menu. Comment back with the options.

You probably need to reset the drive boot order in the system bios.Usualy your computer will tell you what key/keys to press to get into the bios.Usually once you are in there you can scroll around until you find it. Keep in mind this is a low level of the computer and everything is done by the keyboard and there is only text so follow instructions to the letter.

Can't turn my computer on and i have a yellow blinking light on my dell dimension E510


Do you use a surge protector? If you do, try turning off the power supply to the surge protector and switch on again.
There are a number of causes for this problem, the most likely being a PSU problem or a motherboard fault/failure. To check the power from the PSU to the motherboard, you will need a multimeter to make sure enough power is going to the motherboard. Also check the motherboard closely to see if there is any signs of corrosion or blackened areas, which could be caused by overheating components. Check for leaky or burnt capacitors.

completely depends on what you are using it for, if you are just using it as a standard user for listening to music, gaming etc any 5.1 PCI card will do. If you want to use specialist software for editing etc you may want to go up market?

if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.
