SOURCE: MONITOR GOES BLANK

Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.

Most of the Dell cases can be opened without tools, it should not be too difficult.

Here's the link to the Dell 3000 support site.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/index.htm

Take a look at "Removing the Cover"

Next click on then "Removing and Installing Parts" and then click on "Cards".

You should be able to replace your modem with any PCI modem compatible with your operating system. Go to Bestbuy or Officemax and tell them what you're looking for and they'll help you choose a modem that is compatible. Just follow the modem manufacturer's directions to install. Sometimes they want you to install software then hardware, sometimes the opposite. Just follow their directions.

I hate to beg, but many people don't realize we don't get paid for this, we just like trying to help. I hope you'll take a moment and rate this solution if you found it helpful.

SOURCE: Have no sound

You can try re-installing the sound-card drivers, you can get them here --> http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600. If the updated sound-card drivers don't work and you need to purchase a replacement sound card, here are your options ( according to your Dell model ) from bestbuy.com --> http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=pcat17071&type=page&st=PCI+Sound+Cards&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960. Hope that this helps you out.

KEYBOARD WILL NOT WORK ON DEMENSION 3000 UNABLE TO TYPE ANYTHING


Keyboard might be bad or you might have a virus that has hijacked the keyboard.

Make sure the keyboard is plugged into the computer good. Then reboot the computer into Safe Mode and see if the Keyboard works.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

Dell - No icons or start button


to get your Icons back try this.
  1. Right-click the desktop.
  2. Point to Arrange Icons By.
  3. Click Show Desktop Icons.
I would also try this.
Another quick shot, is goto Start, Run, type "msconfig", and click the tab saying DIAGNOSTIC. click apply, restart, and see if your icons are there.

Then I would run a virus scan. you could have a virus on the machine. I recommend MalwareBytes for virus removal. you can get it at www.Download.com

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
