    What is the sound you are getting?

  • hubcap1324 May 11, 2010

    When you say flip out....does it beep? If so the beep sequence is very important as it will give a hint to what the problem is.



    Or if you hear a loud ratling noise, could be a bad fan, failing hard drives make a lot of noise sometimes too.

Is the sound coming from your fan on the power supply, if is it turn off the computer and check to see if the fan had a lot of dirt on it. if it does use a can of air to clean it out. try turning on your computer to see if tht cures the problem.

Dell computer wont start up


Tough one, but inspect the motherboard for a blown capacitor. You could test the power supply with a simple voltmeter. Not to mention simply seeing anything lit with the case open while powered one. gl

Hello, Last night I shut down my Dell E510 desktop - the proper way - by going to the start menu, shut down, turn power off. Then, today, I pressed the power button on the front of my tower and...


This sounds like a definite power issue. This means that the problem could range from being as simple as the power button itself not working/disconnected to the power supply being dead.

Things to try:

1. Have the side of your computer open and press the power button. Notice if any fans start to move or anything that happens.

2. Do you notice the Hard drive light flashing at all when turning on?

3. Has anyone else been using or been close in proximity to the computer that could have bumped it, causing something to come loose?

4. ONLY if you feel competent enough, check the cable connections inside the computer. Make sure to disconnect from the wall for 30 seconds and reconnect before touching any cables inside. Leaving the cable connected allows the computer case itself to act as a ground to prevent static shock.

Good luck!

I plug power cord and nothing happen no light is blink means dump , i shutdown 2 days back pls advvise what to do'??


Sounds like a bad power supply or possibly bad mother board. Make sure the fan in the power supply comes on when you plug it in. Also if, you are game, look inside the PC and make sure the power supply is plugged into the mother board and not loose.

Dell computer has no power


The PC power supplies are always connected to power, the so-called off state is in reality stand-by. I'm afraid that the cause of the breaker tripping (some power surge or something) has killed your PC's power supply unit.

Computer will not turn on at all. Dell Dimension 5100 desktop


I would unplug the power supply from the motherboard, wait a little while and then plug it back in.
Try to power everything back up and it should come up.

I am assuming you are getting a light on the motherboard that indicates power is being supplied?

Power failure


by plugging it directly into the wall... what was it plugged into before. and have you actually taken some other electrical device and plugged it in to make sure the wall socket is still live.
there is also a reset button on most power strips... it may have tripped.

Try those and let us know.
