Robert was right make sure your computer is unplug from the power strip. now check the power supply cable to the mother board, then check the power cable to the harddrive, and then the DVD.once you put the power cable back into the computer you should get the power supply fan should come on, and the cpu fan should come on.

Next once you hit the on/off switch and green light should come on.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.


Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards

In a computer, the components with moving parts are the most likely to fail.
If your Dell desktop is more than 2-3 years old, your DVD drive may be reaching the point where it is no longer performing correctly and must be replaced.

Replace the DVD drive in your Dell Desktop to return the computer to normal operation, so you can resume watching movies and burning discs

Turn your computer off completely, and unplug all of the cables from the back.
You may wish to label some of the cables with tape so you will not forget where they go when you put everything back together.

Move the computer to a sturdy work surface, and touch a grounded metal object to release any built-up static electricity.

Open the computer case by pulling the latch on the side of the unit if you have an XPS, or removing the thumb screws in the back if you have an Inspiron.

If you have a different type of Dell desktop or a very old model, you may need to consult the instruction manual for instructions on how to open the case.

Remove both cables from the back of the existing DVD drive.
Leave the data cable connected to the motherboard, and set both cables aside where you will be able to reach them easily.

Find the metal latch on the side of the existing DVD drive, and push it down.
The drive will slide out of the case.

Remove the screws from the old DVD drive, and put them into the same holes on the new drive.

Find the jumpers on the back of the drive.
The jumpers are an array of six small pins, with a plastic piece covering two of them.

Move the plastic piece so that it covers the pins marked "CS" or "Cable Select."
If the DVD drive will be only drive connected on the cable that is connected to the motherboard on the other end, the "MA" or "Master" setting will also work.

Slide the DVD drive into the computer case.
When it reaches the metal latch, it will snap into place.

Connect the two cables (for power and data) that you set aside to the back of the drive.
Close the computer case, reconnect the cables, and turn the computer on.

The new DVD drive will be detected automatically.

Dell demension 4600 wont turn on


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.
Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Windows wont start. dont know how it happened.


press F2 to go to the system setup, then press arrow down to highlight Standard CMOS feature, then press enter. Verify if the hard drive is detected, mostly it is installed in SATA 0 and you should see like a serial no of the Hard drive. If the hard drive is not detected, you might need to reseat the cables of the hard drive inside the computer. Make sure that all the cables at the back of computer is unplugged to be safe. After you reseat the hard drive cable, plug cables at the back of the computer then turn on computer and press F2, verify if the hard drive is detected, if still not, try to swap the connection of the hard drive and the dvd drive of the computer. Plug back the cables and turn on comp and press again F2, this time the the dvd drive should be on the SATA 0 and hard drive should be on the oter SATA port. If the hard drive is still not detected, you need to replace the hard drive, but if the hard drive is detected on the other SATA port and the dvd drive is not detected on SATA 0 then you need to replace the mother board.

My CD-rom will not work after inserting CD's or DVD will not rev-up what wrong and what should I Do I Have Inspiron 531????


1.The laser optical eye of the CD-ROM drive may be dirty, and needs cleaning.
If the optical eye is dirty, it won't read the information on the disk you install.

A) Computer on, Windows loaded, open the tray of the DVD-ROM drive. (Or DVD burner drive. Whichever drive you are referring to. DVD-R/RW)
Shut the computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power.
Use a can of compressed air fror computers, and spray air into the DVD-ROM drive.

The optical eye, is located on the bottom of the DVD-ROM drive. (Or burner drive)
The opening in the bottom of the tray, that comes out for your disk, is where you spray the air.

You won't be able to see the optical eye, so how will you know you are spraying the air at the correct place?

If you start at the front of the bottom of the DVD-ROM drive, and work your way towards the back, you will clean the optical eye. Spray across from side to side, and in rows, as you proceed towards the rear.

(Air will make it's way through, and reach the optical eye. The optical eye is not visible, as it can be harmful to the human eye when operating.
Laser.
When the tray is closed the optical eye is exposed. It is not exposed to where it can harm the computer user.

More information that may be helpful, in understanding where the optical eye is located,

Scroll down to the heading - CD-ROM drives. Also view the photos down on the right, and the animated GIF.

2.Make Windows reinstall the drivers.
This solution requires physically removing the flat ribbon cable from the back of the DVD-ROM/DVD burner drive, then reattaching it.

Software advice of Updating the drivers, Rollback the drivers, or downloading, and installing the drivers, doesn't always work, or doesn't work.

If the physical solutions I am providing here does not work, we will proceed to the software solutions if you wish. (Comment)
