A possible expansion card failure has occurred

  1. Determine whether a conflict exists by removing a card and restarting the computer.
  2. If the problem persists, reinstall the card that you removed, remove a different card, and then restart the computer.
  3. Repeat this process for each card. If the computer starts normally, troubleshoot the last card removed from the computer for resource conflicts (see "Resolving Software and Hardware Compatibilities" in your computer Owner's Manual).
  4. If the problem persists, contact Dell for technical assistance.

The screen will turn on for a split second then turn to black. Each time the poet button is pushed the same thing happens but does not stay on. The power button stays green but black screen.


There are lights on the back of the Dell that tell you a little more. Dell has an extensive list of trouble shooting procedures at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SYSTEMS/dim3100/en/sm/adtshoot.htm#wp1124478
Hope this information will help.

Dell e310 won't start after power failure ,orange


First up, don't buy a Dell again unless you like old **** with horrible support.

On Topic

- Did you pull out the keyboard and try another USB port (if it is an USB keyboard), or try another keyboard.
- If that doesn't work try clearing the CMOS (remove power plug, power on (to empty capasitors), either remove the CMOS battery and power on, or find a jumper to reset the CMOS. (since this is a Dell a that might not exist but check the manual).

Loading PBR for descriptor 2... MODEL DELL DV051


That is the boot loader message to boot to the NTFS Primary boot partition (Primary Boot Record for Descriptor 1 is the Utility partition)
Normally, this message flashes and the system boots, since it is not there is a failure in the boot process.
#1 run diags on the Hard Drive (CTRL+ALT+D at boot) and see if it passes
If it does
#2 Boot to you XP CD, press R for recovery console, and run the COMMAND CHKDSK /R see if the system will boot
If no go, go back to recovery console, try the command BOOTCFG /Rebuild then see if the system will boot
If That fails, try reinstalling Windows
If Diags Fail or all the above fail, replace the hard drive

Dell dimension e310 desk top will not power on


If the POWER Button on the TOWER is blinking AMBER (Yellow) then the most likely failure point is the POWER SUPPLY in the Tower.

Dimension e310- Black screen when powering on, 1 & 2 lights blink


Generally, the 1 and 2 Diagnostic LEDs indicate a failure of a PCI expansion card.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3100/en/sm/adtshoot.htm#wp1130520
So remove any expansion cards, see if anything changes. If it does, one of the PCI cards is suspect.
If the system has an expansion video card in the PCI-E slot, and removing the PCI cards had no effect, remove the PCI-E video card and connect to the intergrated video port (You may have to remove a black cover from the port) and see if you get video. If you do, then the Expansion video card has failed.

I have a dell dimension e310 and I have locked the bios password and cannot reset it


Dell describes an easy way how to clear the CMOS settings in their manual for the E310. You can download it here. Look at page 110 (page 112 in the pdf-file) and follow the instructions.

!!! Turn off the power and unplug it from the wall. Wait a minute or two before you open the cover (page 63, pdf page 64), so all transistors and capacitors have the time to get rid of any electricity.

If the jumper method does not work, remove the CMOS battery for 5 minutes and put it back in (page 95/96, pdf page 96/97). That will clear the settings as well.

...and remember: ESD (Electrostatic discharge) is your enemy No.1 here! Make sure not to touch any parts of the motherboard or wear an antistatic wrist strap.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My dell dimension e310 doesn't come on the orange light just blinks when it is plugged to the power


Hi,

here are a few things to try.
remove the power lead from the computer, for 5-10 minutes then reconnect.
press and hold the power button, for more than 3-5 seconds, incase the system has gone into hibernation/standby mode.
Remove any un-necessary connected devices ( usb powered Printers-cameras et,c )
