Question about Dell Dimension B110 PC Desktop

1 Answer

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

All the fans came on, but the hard drive and cdrw still weren't responding (so windows xp isn't booting either) and the blinking amber light is now steady, as is the green light. It just stays like that with no dislay on the monitor, because the hard drive hasn't booted up.

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

Bios cannot read hard drive


Hi Robert,

IT could be that the Barracuda drive is formatted for boot up. I would boot up with the drive that boots, and make the Barracuda a spare drive, so you can go in and first see if has any issues as a drive,(meaning sector 0 errors, and if you can access it, then you can format it as a boot up drive, or get what data on that drive off for your friend.

Good Luck Mark

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Bad hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

No startup power


if a computer will not boot at all it is either the ram memory to blame ..and in this case it will start the fan but fail the boot and either make a beep or will restart and make a click noise...in a loop ..The action is to remove the ram and place back and see if it works with one module at the time ..This way you identify the wrong one ..
Another issue may be the CPU fan ..If it not starts..the computer will not work ..cause it is shut down due to overheating the CPU in seconds ..check the fan to work ..and to be plugged on the motherboard..if it seam not working change it ..
It may be a CPU failure..in this case it starts but nothing on screen but the fan spinning ..and makes no noise and do not let you do anything ..
If it does start ..and only shows a few devices but never boot up ..it may be the hard disk ..and in this case will tell you it failed to boot cause the hard disk is not functional ..or it will say it failed due to missing operation system ..
good luck ...the problem need to be taken one step at the time ..and eliminate causes...If you have another desktop and the devices match ..try them one by one ..and see what is working and what not ..

CPU Fan sounds like a jet and computer won't start


It sounds more like the hard drive, the fan has nothing to do with your computer booting up. If the hard drive is starting to go bad it will not boot up, that's what it sounds like your computer is doing. I recommend checking out the hard drive and replacing it.

Start wont load window, just flahing light on screen. may have got virus


Remove hard drive, find out make and model of hard drive. Go to hard drive manufacturer's website and download testing software (if you have another computer with internet access). Should be a bootable ISO file. Burn the boot cd and run it on the host computer after reinstalling the hard drive. Sounds like a bad hard drive in my opinion.

My HP Slimline Desktop s3120n turns on and as soon as goes on it turns itself off.


it seems your computer needs cleaning and servicing, my advice is to open your pc and use dust cleaner,you can buy a can from any computer outlet, spray all the dust out also all fans,the heat sink on the CPU,make sure also the fan that is connected via the CPU,I believe dust has accumulated between the fan and the CPU,by this the cpu cannot read the from the hard drive all because of so many dust that has accumulate between the cpu, it hard to read the data from hard drive and CPU.
hope this work for you.
