Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop

Desktop Will Not Turn On

I have a desktop that I work on every day and I usually leave it on during the night.... yesterday morning I came down and it said that windows was shutting down (I assume it was due to automatic updates because I did not turn it off) so I waited a few minutes and after it still did not shut down I pressed the power button and turned it off (I needed to start working) when I went to try to start the computer again, nothing happened (no lights, sounds, fans.... nothing) currently I am using another computer but I would like to get me other working in case I need it`

    I just tried that and it did not work.... thanks of the suggestion though

    now that I have spent some time on this site (today is the first day that I ever was on here) I think that it is the same problem that is in this thread

    if anyone has any other suggestions I would be open to them

    Thanks, again

Shut the tower off or unplug it form the back for a few minutes
plug in back in and then try to turn it on
you may have a power supply failure

More than likely your power supply got fried from a power surge during that storm anyway. You'd be surprised at how worthless most surge suppressors are these days.

I shut my computer down at night, but can't get on Internet next


There is no reason to shut down either the router or modem. My router and modem has power 24/7 with no issues for many years. Just leave them powered.

I shut down my desktop properly that night.i woke


Hello,

First use the following steps:

Turn off the system and disconnect power cables.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
Reconnect power cables and try to turn it on.

If it remains same, the next step will be to turn off the system,
Disconnect power cables
Open the case and re-seat memory modules.

If you have more than one modules installed, test the system with a single module at a time.


Thanks

Stays on for less than 60 seconds


Blow out the computer with canned air. If the heatsink is full of dust then its overheating. Dont leave it on over night either.

My Desktop Computer won't start up.


Mine has crashed. So has yours. It has crashed. You must try to boot it with a boot disc made for the operating system. As its 8 years old the manufacturer wont sell you a boot disk but you can buy a boot disk for the correct version ofwindows

Can not start my computer


Plug the unit directly to the ac outlet if it is plug into a surge protector. See if it boots. Did you shut it down yesterday or was it left running? Any bad weather last night? You could try another computer memory and see it is the memory. Not sure what it could be at this point. What type of system is it?
It could possibly be a bad power supply.

I hope this helps.
