The computer can go wireless, you will require a wireless router if you dont have one already that connects to your high speed internet. then a wireless pci card or usb dongle at connects to the tower. i would pick a usb dongle as it doesnt require you to open the computer up to install ans its very easy to setup

SOURCE: help my second hard drive dont show up

Hi

Make sure it is connected properly.
Then go to Disk Management by typing "diskmgmt.msc" in the Run window.
Then check in Disk Management if there is any unassigned or any uninitialised partition there.
If you find one, right click on it and then select either "Format" or "Initialise".

SOURCE: no power up no post no nothing on dimension 3100

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. It sounds like you have isolated the problem to the motherboard since you removed everything but the board and power supply. You may be able to locate one by browsing the internet. Just type in “DELL Dimension 3100 motherboard” and see if you can locate one at a reasonable price.

Screen is pink on my dell dimension 3100


Check your monitor cable first! Try reconnecting your display cable both at the computer and monitor ends. If it's still pink, try reinstalling the vga graphics driver from the Dell Utility CD-ROM (Or download from Dell's support site http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/dimension-3100/drivers then select you PC model's video driver and re-install it. if after re-installing the video driver your display's still pink, try connecting to a different monitor - if a different monitor displays correctly, then its your monitor that's faulty. If it's pink on a different monitor too, then it's your PC video hardware that's got the problem - At least you'll know whether it's the monitor that's faulty or whether it's your computer's graphics hardware. (if your computer's video chip is faulty, then I suspect you'll need a replacement motherboard - $$$ - as I think the video is "on-chip" on the Dimension 3100 - so it may be time to consign it to the scrapheap and buy a new system if you can afford to)

When i start up my dimension 3100 dell desktop instead of a green light i get a flashing amber light. people say it is the power supply but the light wouldnt even come on if it was. can you please help me?


No, the light WOULD come on if it was a Power Supply problem.

1) If ALL of the LED lights on your computer were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Dell Dimension 3100 desktop computer?
An Intel Pentium 4.

Intel Pentium 4 model 640.
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 3.2GigaHertz. (3.2GHz)
Fits in a Socket 775 processor socket. (Also know as Socket T)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_2M_.2890.C2.A0nm.29

Can use up to 84 Watts.


You have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

I have a dell dimension 3100 desktop, and just purchased a fivespot mobile broadband wireless device. Can I get a wifi connection (without connecting the device directly to my tower?


No, your desktop doesn't have a wifi card. You will have to either buy one and install it or connect the Verizon dongle directly with an USB cable.

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive


With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Dell 3100 desktop,I need to know how to reinstall my network driver (wireless driver)could you walk me through it,I have genuine Driver disc that came with computer but I dont know which one to...


If you are reinstalling a driver, it is typically best to go with the newest version of that driver. The best way to get the newest drivers is directly from Dell.
If your desktop does not have internet without this driver, download the file (as follows) on another computer and move it to your dimension and install (as follows).
Browse to Dell's driver download page:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen
There will be a service tag somewhere on the tower of your Dell 3100 desktop, type in this service tag on the product identification page. Note: the drivers here may not be applicable if you have upgraded your computer's hardware since purchasing it.
Be sure to choose the correct operating system you plan on running on this machine. Under category you can select "Network". This will bring up all of the network adapter drivers. Select the first driver labeled "Dell Utility" which applies to the wireless USB adapter.
Choose the "Download" button and save the driver to your computer. Double click this file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the software.
Your wireless internet device should now work!
