Dell inspiron 560 problems

When i press the power button on my dell inspiron 560 desktop,everything seems to come on,all the fans started to spin,the cd drive opened and closed,but nothing showed up on my monitor,its just a blank screen,the monitor goes into sleep mode.the problem isn't the monitor because i connected it to my laptop and it was working fine.i took out the ram and heard the beeping sounds so it cant be the mobo right? i put the ram in a different slot,that seem to work,but whenever i shut the computer down then turned it back on its giving me the same problems i had before.i bought a new power supply because i thought that would fix the problem but it didnt.could this be a ram issue ?..also my hdd light wont light up...

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 4600 Won't Boot Up, Steady Amber Light is on tower

It could very well be the Mobo or the power supply. You may want to try to take the CMOS battery out for a few mins as well, I have had problems with that. But I would try PS first, get one from Circuit city or another electronics store and if it doesnt fix it take it back. I dont know if you know a lot about computers but you could buy a new Mobo just make sure the Ram and Processor match up

SOURCE: Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

try booting up your CPU again, while on its process of booting press F8, then select (something MODE), okay, then when you are at windows environment go to control panel, select display, set your display settings its default or 900 by 600 pixels settings, then if its run okay then change to your desired settings.

SOURCE: Computer Wont respond after the RAM was switched. 6 beeps.

Hello

The beep code you are getting is faulty ram. There really is not anything you can do to fix this yourself. Sorry

Best regards

SOURCE: Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly

Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe

Dell inspiron 560 power supply problem


This could be either power supply or motherboard problem. If the fans on the motherboard and power supply are spinning then it's probably the motherboard which you can check by removing the memory and unplugging the data lead off your hard drive. It should start beeping.
If not, then it's probably the power supply. They are easy enough to change - half a dozen plugs and four screws. I always replace standard power supplies with a 400 watt one. It will tell you the wattage on the label, I would add 100 to that figure and get that size or bigger - depending what's available.
It will not hurt to replace a 250 watt unit with a 500 watt unit so don't worry about that. It gives you room for expansion.

My dell inspiron 560 wont recognize any disc it acts like nothings in it how do i fix it?


Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

When I push the power button, the main dell start up screen comes on followed by a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. It uses Windows 7


Remove any CD's or USB drives 1st.


Sound like its trying to load and can't find hard drive, CD, or USB device. You need to go into BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key to press during boot. Make internal hard drive first. Save and restart. Reseat hard drive if it does not show up in BIOS.
