Problem turnining computer power on

For the past several weeks I have had a strange problem with my Inspiron 530S (Intel Core2 Duo): one day I turned it off and then could not turn it on again using the power button on the front. I tried several things and found something that works: I unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait about 30 second and plug it back in, at which point the power goes on again and the computer boots up. Also, even when I turn off the computer, using Windows XP menu, several lights including the power button light on the front of the computer stay on. It is only when I remove the power cord from the wall that these lights go off, and then as I said the computer boots up immediately when I plug it into the wall outlet again. Dell techincal support was no help in several phone calls I made. They wanted me to take the computer apart.

Would a Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Dual-Core CPU 2.4GHz Socket LGA775 1066MHz 4MB be compatible with a Dell 530s?


you need to know what motherboard you have. If you download a free program called Belarc and install it it will give you all the information about your pc. Once you know what motherboard you have then just google it and see what cpu's are compatible.

    There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.

    Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.

    I hope this answered your question.
