The CD/DVD drive will not play or burn Cds or DVDs. Just started to 'go wrong' yesterday. Its a Dell E520 running Vista Home Basic


The easitest way restore your computer several days back, or your system recovery which comes with the computer when you first purchased it.

No power on dell e520 dimension


On the 20 pin connector, short the green wire to any black wire with a paperclip. This will force the power supply to turn on manually if the motherboard is not giving the correct "ON" signal.

I cant git sound


If your monitor is fine try changing the data cable to one you know to be working. If it still does not work then the graphics card needs to be replaced.

My pc is not turning on (all the light does is blink orange)


Woops -the blinking amber light of doom is a common fault on dells -
usually a solid amber is the Power supply while a blinking one indicates Motherboard problems. If machine is still under warranty dell will replace it.
If not then it will cost you to have them replaced.
