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.

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.
