Put your recovery disk that came with the system and run that. But only click on repair.

My computer wont turn on


take out the psu completely from the cpu/tower, plug in the power cord,if there is a switch on the psu turn it on, next locate the main power connector (24pin) and find green wire,take a piece of wire and insert it into the green wire connector,next touch the other end of the wire to the psu outer case or a black wire on the main connector,if all is well the psu will turn on,if you have a dc voltage tester check the voltages on the red and black wires on molex connector...5vdc,yellow and black...12vdc.if ok look at the main board and inspect the capacitors to see if they are swollen, if ok
replace psu and disconnect hdd,cd/dvd,floppy ect from main board only leave memory,processor and video, power on if ok shut off and reconnect hdd, power on, if ok shutoff and connect floppy, if ok power off and connect cd/dvd drive.during this testing you will know what is bad.let me know how it turns out.email; arjoon.ken@gmail.com

Pc restarts


You have to give your PC time to start-up.. When you first log in to windows, your PC is starting multiple applications that take up memory and processor usage. These programs run in the background after they have been started. So while they are starting and killing your memory and processor, you try and load a game that wants to use all that processor and memory..but it is already getting used by your start-up applications. So your PC is 'overloaded', usually this only makes your PC slow, very slow, for a period of time until those programs are no longer using up resources.

My suggestion... wait a few minutes after you turn it on, before playing a game.... or get more memory and/or a faster processor...

or you could stop some of those app's from running at startup... but giving it a few minutes to 'start-up' is the best solution.

Dimension 5100 will not turn on


Try checking your Computer Management Services.

I had a similiar problem with a laptop. Just stopped working one day. Could not shutdown because it would not restart without disconnecting power. Could not reboot, because it would not restart without power being disconnected.

Checked Computer Management Services and found some of the services had been turned off.

Try this and let me know if you need more help.

BIOS failure ??? DEll Systems OptiPlex GX270 Series


this may or may not help, try taking out the cmos battery out (looks like a watch battery) and leave for a few minutes then replace, this will reset the bios.

Check that all the power supply units are switched on( Wall Plug, UPS, CPU), If all is ok and the problem exists, replace the CMOS battery.( if the sys works replace your CMOS Battery, configure the cmos settings also)
