Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

2 Answers

My computer turns on but the moniter wont

It just sits in a resting state. The moniter works fine if I hook it up to my other computer so it is something else. The cords are new and working fine.

    The tower starts up and it doesnt beep for long. Just the normal start up. I get a screen then the screen goes black and the light turns to amber.

    Does the machine beep at all on startup? Does the box sound like its powering up? Check you reset button isn't jammed. Try unplugging everything and start plugging them in again to ensure everything is plugged in firmly.

Hi again
Hit F8 on start-up, you will see a sub menu pop up, choose safe mode and hit enter, if it boots into windows safe mode (don't choose system restore) go into device manager and uninstall the graphics drivers and restart the machine, the machine should now boot up and re-install the graphics drivers itself, it may ask to be restarted again.
Any more problems post back

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Gateway Computer tower making ringing noise -computer moniter not coming on


See if the Harddrive is making the noise, sscruggs06.

(Computer unplugged from power. Follow Anti-Static Precautions.
I listed them here in a previous solution,

Perhaps the Spindle bearings are bad, and Platters are scraping,

How do i hookup logitech speakers #z313 to my emachine e202hl


The manual for your speakers can be found at http://www.logitech.com/repository/1411/pdf/27251.1.0.pdf. The Speakers should be conected to your computer as opposed to the moniter. Disconect the small wire from the moniter to the computer and insert the plug from the speakers where it came from.

This the cisnet


Well, I CAN say, that usually an orange monitor light means:
  • "No Signal"
  • Either because, the computer isn't on, or the monitor just isn't receiving a video signal from the video card.
Is the video card an on-board adapter.. or is there an actual addon video card?

Reply in more detail as to how you have everything hooked up, and what exactly happens, and I'll be more than happy to help figure out what is wrong.

Computer would not boot up, only showed red light


I'd say power supply first.

If you have an expansion slot filled with a video card, remove the video card (provided you have onboard video connector as well) then try to reboot. I just went through similar issues with an GForce video card, it went bad, but the machine appeared to boot althugh I couldn't see the screen. Removed the card & it came up using minimal VGA drivers provide with WinXP.

Obviously you cannot check the video driver if you're not booting up...and seeing the screen.

Find a buddy with a regular monitor and hook it up and try to boot. Dell monitors sometimes require their propietary drivers, so write down the model when you take your pc to a friend's place, and DL the driver and install it (provided you got it to boot up)

All of a sudden my moniter would not stay on I thoght it was my moniter because it was getting no imput siginal so I hookes uo another comouter to the moniter and it works fine, the message I was geeting...


it is possible the card is going out. however, since it is the ati radeon HD 2400 xt, it is doubtful. you may have been infected with a trojan or other nasty which is the cause. go to

http://www.download.com/SUPERAntiSpyware-Free-Edition/3000-8022_4-187228.html?tag=mncol&cdlPid=10978875

and download and install, then run the superantispy free edition to remove any nasties the security program you have has not caught.
restart the pc. if the problem is not resolved, you may need to re-install the video driver software from ati (if you don't have the cd) at
