SOURCE: Change Motherboard For Dell Dimension 5150

If you replace with the same motherboard that's in already, that would be easiest for you.

But if you use a different one, you'll have to re-activate Windows, and download and install new device drivers.

SOURCE: My Dell Dimension 4600 needs to be reformatted.

Before you go ahead and try reformatting the system , Please disconnect everything from the system (Except Mouse, Keyboard and screen)
and then try to use the disc to reformat the system. and if it still hangs up or freezes up that clearly seems to be a hard drive failure.

Hope this help.
Cheers!!!!

Even if your machine is out of warranty with Dell, if you're the original or legal owner having purchased it from the original owner you can order the original set of installation disks and all drivers and software that originally came with it. I've done this and they send them pretty fast!

My c521 powers up but will not boot. What can I try to fix the problem? Thanks


Check for internal missing devices and connectivities. check for disk media in the disk drives. The system unit has no hard storage drive.

Reads boot disk failure 0


Boot disc 0 failure is usually indicative of the failure of the hard drive that contains the operating system. Make sure the hard drive is well seated into the cables and that the cables are seated onto the motherboard. If it all is well, then the hard drive has most likely failed and needs to be replaced.

I got my motherboard changed in October and my computer won't boot up "disk boot failure 0" could I have the same problem again? I don't have a disk - dell dimension C521


The motherboard is not the problem.
Your hardisk is the problem.
See if your hardisk is detected during boot up procedure.
If it does... Run again your Windows XP CD installer and repair your operating system.
Having "Disk Boot Failure" error means the boot system of you operating system is corrupted.
If your hardisk is not detected... you better check if the power supply connector on your hardisk is secured and not loose..
If still not detected.. your hardisk crashed and need to be replace.

How do I restore my Dell Dimension C521? I am


You need the C521 recovery disk, from Dell. Set the BIOS to boot from CD and start the system.

If it gives you the option of "Complete Reinstall" or "Repair", choose Complete Reinstall.

If it does not, or if it does not work - i.e., it always reads the disk and tries to maintain as much data as it can, you need to first wipe out the hard drive; there are many "Disk Wipe" utilities out there. I'd suggest using a boot disk such as DBAN (www.dban.org).

check on system lights... what are the diagnostic lights telling you??
if the 4 lights are off you may have a problem with the led itself or the powersupply is just messing with your head.

Disk drive not found


It sounds like the hard drive went bad. Can you see the hard drive in the bios at all? When you try and boot the computer does it say drive not found? Try booting from the vista cd and see if you can start a new installation. If you can do the intallation the drive is ok. If not the hard drive is bad.
