Go to your event viewer and look at the log.
It's possible you have a corrupted dll or driver.

If you have a lot of startup programs, that may cause it. You can run a program called hijack this to see what's foreign in your startup such as spyware. Hope this puts you in the right direction.

Free antivirus program


You don't have a question here, but I will comment on AVG. I used to use AVG and have Beta Tested both AVG and AVAST. AVAST I can set up a Boot-Time Scan and with AVG I can not. Importance of a Boot-Time Scan, is getting rid of persistent viruses. There is NO, and I mean NO antivirus program that totally works under Windows. The Boot-Time Scan works under DOS and runs before windows is loaded upon your next restart. It takes longer, but it works very well. Depending on the size of your hard drive and the number of files on it, it can take as long as 2 to 2 1/2 hours. It is automatic, so walk away and when you see windows has loaded, then the Boot-Scan has finished. There is a log file that you can view to see what it found if you want to look. Once AVG let a virus into my computer, I went to AVAST and never went back, mainly because AVAST works and also the Boot Scan feature that AVAST has. Years ago, there was a DOS based virus scan that I had used on a Floppy Disc to rid computers of nasty virus attacks and infested PC's. It was proven to me that only a DOS based program can rid any virus a PC is infected with. With the free version you do not necessarily get all the help you need, but with the paid versions you will get all the Bells and Whistles. While free is alright to try, I recommend you Buy! This keeps software development going in the right direction and improvements flourishing.

PC not starting


Sure hate saying this but your dell 4400 board is the trouble.
Just finished reading a bunch of post. Double check Dell's web site too. No lights lit on the back of the PC means no power & the green led you see on the board is telling you that the board has power.
Seems your not the only person with the same problem as with other 4400 owners.
One user called dell & stated the problem he had, (just like your problem), to the letter. Dell admitted there is a problem with the 4400's. mainboard. Dell does not go out & replace every board. They, like every company wait till someone has this type of problem & contacts the Mfg. Your 4400 was made back in what 2003 - 2004. If Dell still supplies your board the best they'll do is sell you a refurbished board.
I think your better off buying a new board & fitting into your Dell case. You can try to find a board that will run your current componets.
This is dell's web site link for the dell 4400.

Good luck & thanks for coming to FixYa.
