Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a dimension E510 and when I turn it on i can log in as the administrator or my guests but it goes directly to my screen saver. It appears to be in a sleep mode or idle mode. None of my applications show up... How do I get out of this mode?

If it goes to screen saver immediately after loading. Then run a spyware/malware scanner to remove the infection. Since no applications are showing up this is mostly likely what is happening.

How can i add guest icon to my startup screen


If your computer is not part of a domain. First check if the Guest account is turned on. You will need to be an Administrator. The guest account option is in the User Account control panel. Click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column). Select the link for User Accounts. Click on the Guest account to turn on the option.

Then you should be able to see an option for switching to the Guest account when you log out of your current account or get to the select user screen when you turn on/restart the computer. (The default is to log in the most recent user.)

If your XP Pro computer is part of a domain, you need to use the Local Users and Groups section of Computer Management. That's in the Control Panel under Performance and Maintenance > System Tools. Right click on an account and select Properties to enable or disable the account.

I hope this helps.

SCANNER WILL NOT RECOGNIZE DOCUMENTS


Have you tried a new USB cable or a different port? Are you sure that the ports are on? (You can turn them off for security or power-savings - check the device manager and the advanced settings from the Screen Saver settings page). Does the scanner work on another computer or does a known working USB device work on your computer? Check if there is an update to the USB driver for your motherboard/machine.

Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and are very sensitive to any interference with the signal.

I hope this helps.

Dell dimension e510 won't turn on


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.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.
