Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimension 3000 that locked up. I had to hold down the power buttom 10 secs. to turn off. Now it will turn on with no power light (I can hear it running) and there is nothing on the monitor. I have tried the mouse, keyboard and restarting the computer.
First make sure the monitor is on and connected to the PC.
If the power light is not on you could have a bad power supply, it could also be that the onboard video went bad.
If your PC has four trouble lights in the back, let us know which ones are lit, this can pinpoint the problem.
The noise you hear is the drive spinning up and the CPU fan.
