When you power it off and back on, can you see the boot up screen? (they're should be a screen that comes up with some information about your computer...) Does this display then turn off?

Dell 530S powers up and goes blank

how long have you given it to boot after it goes black? you may just have to wait a few minutes as windows may be configuring something on boot.

My computer will not boot up. it says AHCI bios not installed. it is a dell 530 s inspiron can anyone help please. it also doesn't show to have cd rom but added A drive which it does not have it wont boot...

This can happen on some models. Turn the computer off and unplug the tower. Press the power button to discharge any stored power. Plug it back in and press the power button. You will probably get this message again but let the computer sit. Windows may be working in the background trying to start back up. Let it go for like a half hour to an hour. If it does not start you may have to do a system restore or a repair install to make windows start correctly again. If waiting longer does not work for you then let us know and I can give you instructions on how to continue the repair process.
Hope this helps... Dale

My Dell Inspiron 518 will not boot. It is dead. Yesterday, it was fine. Now, nothing. I have tried all the recomended fixes.

Check to a different outlet
does it hit the BIOS screen? if blank, and no power
most likely its your power supply. if you post this question again you should add a little more details about the issues

Blank screen, error code;0f00c.

The error you appear to be getting during diagnostics should not be related to the computer not starting. The error you are referencing has to do with a blank CD not being in the CD/DVD drive during that part of the test.
I ran the diagnostics again with a blank cd in the drive and I recieved error code 1000-0146.

Inspiron 530 Dell desktop screen stays black with word DELL across and won't boot up. have F2 = setup F12 = boot menu loading but nothing happening

hello, how long have you waited for something to happen before restarted the system?

in any event, try resetting the BIOS. this is how: unplug the power from pc, wait 10 seconds then open up the side panel of the PC. First thing to do is to make sure you r not carrying any electrostatic charge (sound complicated? well its not) before you touch anything on motherboard in the computer just touch the metal part the casing and you are done.
now, locate the round ( coat button size) battery and gently take the battery out with paper clip, then look around and your will a jumper around that battery area. note the jumper position, if jumper is on first two pins, remove it and put it on last two.
Now plug the power back to PC (yes battery is still out)and press power switch (note PC may power on or may not) then 3 seconds later pull the power cord back out.
now, move the jumper back to its original position and put the battery back in, plug the power back and test computer.
hope fully this would do the trick, and if not, we might have to perform other tests like bad memory chip, BIOS update etc...

Post your results, good luck

My laptop inspiron 6400 just fall from a table and now I when I power it on just the dell screen appears got freeze and won't go up to windows

Yeah you should first reseat the ram module. Or have it clean with soft eraser only its edge connector. But first you should power it it down completely, disconnect from any power source and disconnect it battery.

If this doesn't help. Boot your unit in DOS mode by starting it in a bootable drive. If you got a command prompt. You might consider the corruption of files in your harddrive or it actually gets damaged by the fall.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 screen is blank. I can see a very faint image of the desktop on the screen. What could be causing the problem and how do i resolve it?

It may have something to do with your adjustment of the LCD's brightness. Look for the brightness key in your keyboard and adjust it. Usually it goes with the Fn button.
