I am not sure about how your wiring is in your home, but these newer systems require more stability with the electrical wiring and if there is a ground fault where you have the computer this would cause the problem you are having. Try another location and see if this changes, if not? try looking into replacing your power supply located on the back of your system. Good Luck

On boot up I have no video display on my dell optiplex 330

It could be one of two things, either your monitor is bad or the video card is bad. Try taken connecting your monitor to a different computer. If the monitor works then it the video card. You could just purchase a new video card and put in and it should work

This is related all the same optiplex 330

Sounds like hardware failure. Could be the anyone of the many components inside of the computer. It's definitely not a software issue.

My suggestion would be to take it to a tech or buy a new computer.

Dell Optiplex 330,won't boot memory parity error, tried new bios battery, new ram stick, still won't boot,actually had two at same time the other I ran a advanced diagnostic test said hard driv

I found this

Customer's Optiplex 330 did the same thing today; no beep codes (due to lack of on board speaker). Solid/orange light on front of case indicates board or cpu. I isolated every component not soldered down (RAM, HDD, Optical, etc). Considering all the fans and lights on the MoBo were functioning, and no physical damage to the CPU was apparent, and the BSOD presented the "memory parity error; system halted" (meaning it's memory, graphics memory, or cpu and we've eliminated possibly CPU and RAM) my conclusion is that the problem resides in Graphics memory failure. Considering the error message is very vague and generally insists "motherboard", the gpu in an optiplex 330 is integrated ON the board, lumping it all together.

and general memory parity fail information

Its just stuck on the Dell screen at the begining energy starpage

if the system doesn't boot past the Dell Screen, the most likely issue is the hard drive.
See if you can bring up the F12 menu at boot and run HDD diags.
If you can't do that and have the dell resource cd, you can try booting to that CD, and run diags there

My brand new dell optiplex 330 is not booting

I know everyone is not a tech, but, if you will take the cover off and while powered on, look at the large silver looking fins (heat sink) on what is known as the North Bridge chip ane use the BACK of your finger to move slowly and see if there is heat on it, and then the base of the CPU as well, if there is no heat, the motherboard is the likely culprit. I know it seems to be low tech, but it is how I derermined 2 Dell motherboards were bad and have replaced them both with sucess.
Also look at the back of the power supply for a small red switch, make sure the power setting matches your area ... 115V or 240V.
Last resort, look here.
