Check if your system is able to get an IP address.

Bypass your router to check if its a router connection problem. Connect your computer directly to your modem.

Click on Start>RUN>Type cmd then press enter. On the black box, type ipconfig /all. Check if your system has an IP address. If it says 169.254.x.x or no IP address then there's a oroblem with your connection. Power cycle your modem, router and computer then check your IP address again.

Power cycle your devices: modem - router then computer.

Dell dimension 5150. wont start


Most times when you have flashing yellow light there is issue ether with cpu or motherboard. Just to be safe test the power supply and if ok then try to replace cpu and go from there. If power supply issue just replace it. Might be easier to take it to pc repair store. Good Luck

We have BT broadband. When we occasionally have to reset the router, everything except the 2 Dell Dimension 5150 desktops works via wireless. They refuse to reconnect. All the other Desktops / laptops work...


Not sure exactly what your hardware setup is, but I would reboot the broadband router, then reboot the wireless router. Everything should come up clean, but give it at least 5 min. To help connect after reboots, you can choose "repair" from the wireless icon in the system tray (XP?) or renew your IP address. Start --> Run... and type ipconfig /renew

Hope this helps!
If so, please leave a rating!

Dell Dimension 5150 will not start!


This is related to Hardware.

There might be a lose Ram of data cable connection on Motherboard.

This type of issue is also seen when the there is dust accumulation on Process Fan and CPU fan resulting in over heating.

This might also be due to malfunction of a motherboard.

The third reason could be that SMPS his not working.

I recently formated my hard drive on my dimension 5150 now i can't connect to the internet to update the puter because i can find the ethernet driver


Find a computer with internet access and type http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R105478.EXE into the browser. It will prompt a download for your network card. Burn it to a CD or copy to USB drive. Then take to your computer and run the file and your ethernet card will be working. This is for the ethernet card on your motherboard. If you have an aftermarket one as well this will get you on your way.

Ethernet driver


Note the Service Tag of the the PC and access the Dell website from another PC. Go into the support section of Dell website, select Download Drivers, and enter the service tag of your PC.

You should be able to find the ethernet driver for it (if there are 2 or more download both and save to a CD or USB memory stick.

Now go to your Dell. You should be able to run the program from the USB stick and it will restore the Ethernet connection.

Do the same for other drivers you need, sound, graphics, etc.

1 USB Port Failure


Hi Guys

Unfortunately after looking at the computer installation details i was at fault, although i have had
the computer for well over 2 years and this is the first time it has happened.
My Dell Dimension 5150 has 7 USB ports 5 at the back and 2 in the front and it appears that i have
connected the keyboard and mouse to the wrong ports.
There are two ports at the bottom allocated for the keyboard and mouse and for some reason i had
them in the top three ports hence my problem but still not sure why it happened.
Anyway my Dell Dimension 5150 is now running OK and no further help is needed.

Many Thanks.

PNY memory


Hi

Dell Dimension 5150 supports DDR2 400MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4300) unbuffered SDRAM Memory (DIMM). You may install a total of four DIMMs in capacities of 256MB, 512MB, or 1GB. The maximum memory supported is 4GB.

From your query, I think the obvious question is; What is specification of the PNY DIMM and/or does the PNY DIMM meet the requirements for Dimension 5150?

Check for memory configuration and installation procedures for Dimension 5150 - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/parts1.htm#wp1364711

The Chipset used on Dimension 5150 is Intel 945G Express. I am not aware of specific compatibility issues regarding the Intel 945G and PNY Memory modules. However, there may really be known issues that I am not aware of.

To proceed, ensure that the PNY Memory is compatible with Dimension 5150. If not, install compatible (memory type, speed, capacity) DIMMs.

Let me know if further help is needed.

Mike
