Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer
I received a new computer and the red slider was half way across i pushed it to one side (stupidly when powered up) and it made a loud bang and lost all power and it tripped the breaker. What will be the damage to it? How can I fix it?
The power supply unit should be the only casualty. If it is new then Dell may cover it under warranty. Do not tell them about the slider, just say it popped when you powered it up. If the unit is not under warranty them you will need to get a replacement power supply, they are available on Ebay for around $40

Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.
If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

yes buy a power supply. I have seen hundreds of computers that have gone through storms. Remember a Dell usually uses a special power supply.
For a good deal look on ebay for your specific model, They almost always have "Buy it Now" deals.

I'll save you 3 hours on the phone with DELL. Same problem.
If you are OK with this, turn power off, discharge system by pressing on button for 5 seconds. Identify the slot for the phone jack/modem. Remove it. Plug in and turn on. If that is the problem, turn off and insert the card in the adjacent slot. They asked that I replace the motherboard, so if you're under warranty, call them.

Please try the following
1) Remove ALL wires from thw back of the PC
2) Press and hold the power button on for approx 15 seconds
3) Replug only the mains power wire and the monitor cable and then retest
Please advise of outcome
I hope this has been useful
