Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

Changed Voltage on DELL INSPIRON 530 and BANG.

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

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts

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.

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 530 wont turn on

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.

SOURCE: Turning on DELL 530 the orange led remains on

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.

How to hook up keyboard to my dell Inspiron 530


Keyboard come with two different connection options these days. The old PS2-style (circular with ~5 pins) port are less common on current machines these days. The Dell Inspiron 530 is one of them; you need a USB keyboard or a PS2 to USB adapter. This adapter, http://www.amazon.com/Adesso-Adapter-connects-connectors-ADP-PU21/dp/B00008ZPED , is an example of how you would connect your old keyboard to your new computer. There are USB ports on the front and back of the tower.

If you bought the computer new, it should have come with a USB keyboard.

I hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 530 beeps 6 times when turned on and doesnt start. The fan runs during this process untill the beeps. Tried unplugging everything and then just the monitor and tower, same result.


you have to reseat the memory
Reseat means you have to remove the memory while the computer is unplug from the system

1. Unplug the power cable from the system
2. Press the Power button for about 5-10 secs to drain any electro static discharge
3. Locate the memory bay
it looks like this chaistars.jpg

Theres 2 white clips in each side
you have to press the 2 white clips on each side to remove it
if you 2 memory you have to remove both of them then put it back the way it was removed and push it towards the slot like you see in the picture.

you must heat that it clicks , thats the indicator that its properly seated.
please be careful and do not put too much pressure when pushing/pressing it down.

Hope that helps

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????


That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.
