Dell Dimension 5150 Stuck In Pwer Safe Mode

My dell monitor won't come on, it's blank and when you press any of the buttons (other than power obviously) it says it's in power safe mode press any key on keyboard or move mouse - this does nothing. Even if I hold the on button down on the tower, it will not start. Can anybody tell me how I can get the computer working again please? Its happened before, but I think I fluked it to get it out of the In Power Safe Mode. Can anyone help with some easy steps. Many thanks - Ian

Sounds like a problem with the video card. Cross check the connections to the CPU. If its all fine, Then Connect the monitor to a diffrenet pc and then use the monitors keys to change it to a plug and play mode.This might help with ur problem

Wanted to restore to original condition. Pressed power and then F8. Then accidently pressed pwer switch again. Now only have blinking amber power light

Are you able to get into safe mode by pressing F8. You can also try the last known good configuration option after pressing f8 continuously.

We understand that your problem is: dell dimension 5150. A few seconds after powering up, monitor display goes blank. PC and monitor is powered up. If I press escape after a while, I can momentarily see...

This sounds to me like your monitor has gone bad. Often times this is caused by the internal components (capacitors usually) going bad, or the back light burning out. Sometimes this can be repaired by replacing the bad capacitors or light, however it is usually more time and cost effective to find an inexpensive replacement monitor. I myself have had good experience with the service at as well as things being reasonably priced. Hope this helps.

Dell Dimension 5150 (& WinXP) - failure to boot up

you could try booting into safe mode, then you could try a system restore
look for the F8 option at the bottom after the first boot window,

youll know youve got it when you get the option to boot into safe mode, if this works you should get to your desktop, if you get the admin login its normally admin as user and leave the password blank.

if you cant get into safe mode, wait till you gt the recovery disks and try a system recovery before reinstalling
