Question about Dell Dimension 4550 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Dell dimensio 4550

I dropped my computer on the top during transport. No, it no longer powers up. I checked all the hardware and it appears to be seated properly. I also tried a new power supply, but have the same problem. I do have a green led when I pull in the power cord, but the computer wont "boot" when I hit the on button. I have a Dell Dimension 4550.

My Dell Dimension 4550 starts up and after about 30 seconds shuts off. It does not matter if I boot in safe mode or normal and I have disconnected everything but the monitor, keyboard and mouse.


If the computer shuts off completely like someone pulled the plug from the electrical outlet, it is probably your power supply. I would first check all the main cable connection from the power supply to motherboard. If the problem persists, swap out the power supply. Thanks.

My Dell 4550 has a cold start problem. It works great once its been running, it has to warm up for 15 to 30 minutes before it completely starts up. I have tried everything, started from scratch. I...


Did you change the power supply ?- it is critical to the operation of your machine. Often if something is wrong with it,k it is not common for the machine to not boot up at all. Could be that until it gets warm some voltage is not up to par and the machine just waits till it is for it to operate properly.

Just make sure that your Dell power supply is not one of the older ones that had the wiring reversed and was not compatible with regular motherboards. Newer Dells are now compatible but older units can only use a Dell supply lest you burn out the motherboard.

After reconfiguring my lap top's os, vista, I have no volume control installed.


Check your hardware device manager.

To access Device Manager, go to Start | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager (Device Manager is located under "Tasks" in the left hand column of the "System" menu). A list of hardware will display like the one shown below.

Hardware you expect to find is not listed If you cannot find the hardware you expect to find, it is likely the hardware is installed incorrectly. You should power down your computer and locate the physical hardware on your computer. Verify it is installed correctly, and restart your computer. Once you have restarted your computer, Windows should automatically recognize the hardware and go through an installation process. You may be asked to provide drivers during this installation.
If you verify that the hardware is installed correctly but still does not appear in Device Manager, please contact the DoIT Help Desk.
A yellow exclamation mark appears next to your hardware A yellow exclamation mark next to your hardware means the device is recognized by Windows but is not working properly. This usually indicates a driver problem. Update your drivers by following the directions below.
  1. Right-click on the hardware and choose Properties.
  2. Click on the Driver tab.
  3. Click on Update Driver....
  4. Click on Search automatically for updated driver software.
  5. Windows will automatically look for updated drivers for your hardware. If unable to find any, you will need to go the hardware manufacturer's website and download new drivers.
A red X appears next to your hardware A red X indicates that the hardware is disabled. Right-click on the hardware and click Enable. Your hardware should no longer have a red X.
If you are still having problems with hardware after you enabled it, please.
