Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

2 Answers

My desk top started getting slower and slower to turn on. To a point, where the screen would almost flash for 30 minutes, before I get my desk top and can use the computer. Then, one day, it decided it does not want to turn on, even if the monitor kept flashing. It has plenty of memory, that's not the problem. I don't know what us. Is it the monitor or the computer!!!! Thanks

You should really run a good scan on the machine to rule out malware infection. Download, install and run the scan/clean in Malware Bytes.

Post your results back here (we can try a few other things afterward but we need to know you have a clean platform first).

Hi,


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot login to windows and

Go to 'Start' and then Run
write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'System configuration utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.
click 'Advanced' tab then under performance menu click on 'settings'
go to 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.
Now restart windows.

To quickly restart windows press CNTRL+ALt+DEL
inside task manager you will find all the open applications.
right click on each application and click on end process tree then ok

Close all your apps like this and you will find your windows a lot faster and now you can reboot or turn off your windows as usual from start button.



Next time you login to windows your issues will be resolved.

If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

Security light is flashing. car will not start.


the security system may need relearned. This may work. . . Turn the key to the on position and leave it there. It may take anywhere from 8-10 minutes for the security light to STOP flashing and go out. At this point, turn the key to off. Repeat this process 2 more times, a total of 24-30 minutes all together. After the security light has gone out the third time, you should be able to start the car. Hope this works for you

Desk top screen keeps flashing wont start up


THE IDEA OF THE SCREEN FLASHING COULD BE EITHER A WINDOWS PROBLEM OR A VIRUS,THE BEST WOULD BE TO GET A HOLD OF A WINDOWS INSTALLATION CD AND JUST UPGRADE THE CURRENT SOFTWARE THAT YOU ARE RUNNING ON THE PC.

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
