Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Windows XP won't start

After accidently shutting off power to my Dell Dimension B110,windows won't reboot. I had a steady green light and a flashing amber light on the first attempt to reboot, the fans kicked on for about 2 seconds then shut off. So I powered it down,unplugged it and opened the side cover, unseated and reseated some of the componets and tried to reboot. This time I got the same green light, the amber was now staedy as well, all
the fans started and stayed on, but the hard drive and cdrw still aren't responding.
What else can I try? It was working fine before this, I can't image that it would
be something serious, HELP!!!! :O
Thanks!

The amber light is the error light on a Dell. It can mean a few things. 1. RAM has went bad, not properly seated. 2. Video card has went bad or come unseated. 3. Power supply is not working properly; or 4. Motherboard has went bad. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Dell B110 turns on but no signal to monitor. Help.


If you have a short display of the devices and the blue screen flashes when you get to windows and shuts down ..than it is a hard disk issue ..God to bios and disable the ahci function for the hard disk bus..and let it run on ide compatible or sata as ide..This is happening when you have a hard disk on sata with ahci on ..and you do not have drivers in the system ..
But if there is no start at all ..it is a different cause and probably the video card damaged if it says no signal ..
Anyway check them all one by one ..cpu fan ..hard disk in and out ..(see if you can boot to bios ) ..and ram memory ..remove tehm and place back ..one by one to spot a potential harmed one ..

Inspiron b110 wont turn on only green flashig


Unplug your computer, wait 30 minutes, plug it back in and try again.

If it still doesn't work, it's got a serious problem. If it isn't under warranty with DELL any longer, take it to a reputable repair facility.

Dell dimension b110 not reading cd drive


Do you have any device drivers loaded on your system that may be interfering? Such as ANYDVD or some other app? Does this happen with data DVD's as well as movies?

Have you tried starting your DVD player application and then inserting the disk into the drive?

One thng you may want to try is going into device manager and deleting all IDE devices, then deleting the IDE controllers themselves and rebooting. This should allow Windows XP (I assume it is XP) to re-recognize and re-initialize the hardware. Then you may want to try re-installing the motherboard chipset drivers (there should be a driver disk that came with your machine, hopefully) just to make sure they are all in good shape.

The fatel error is cause by memory/ and or CPU giveing out if the unit is under warrenty then I would suggest having them diagnose it , if its not then purchase some memory with the same spec's and try reloading again.

Does the computer turn on all the way now or does it start to boot and then turn off?


Your Power Supply is no good, you are going to have to get it replaced. Once you get it replaced everything should be fine.
