Dell vostro 360

I am getting a red, green, blue and white flashing screen when I first boot the computer. I have replaced the mother board but it is still doing it. It usually happens during boot up while windows are starting. But windows never comes up it just keeps flashing.

If under warranty contact Dell? I had this same problem, a new motherboard and fan assembly fixed this problem. Bad capacitors on the motherbard.

Here is what you need to do. Disconect the module with the usb ports from the motherboard. It took a while for me to figure it out but a damaged usb port will make the computer go nuts.

SOURCE: F11 does not work for restoring my PC

This is sounding sort of like a registry failure. But first, when it first starts, press the key that puts it into setup. Gotta drag up the memory of which key that is on a Dell. I believe it's F2.
Anyway, when you get into the BIOS setup screen (if it does, in fact, work) look for a menu item that lets you set the BIOS to default and try the bootup. Also, there is probably one screen that tells the machine to halt on errors. Set that to not halt on errors.
Can't be more specific, as the manufacturers are always changing the BIOS options and I don't have access to a Dell 3000.
If you can't get into the BIOS, let me know and we'll do more stuff.

SOURCE: [Ithr]checkpoint failure dell 8400 dimension

What can cause this error?

Well, this is the problem since quite a variety of problems can trigger the error.

1: the bios can be malfunctioning (a bios reset or flash can give a solution)
2: the cpu can be malfunctioning (this requires a new cpu)
3: the cpu socket can be failing (this requires a new mb)
4: the problem can be with bad usb sockets
5: even a bad uplink to a usb hub can cause this error to appear.
Did you change your monitor lately? I would chase down the USB things first...that and the monitor seem to trip the trigger...
Hope this get you started- I think you were right on target with the flash of the BIOS-try it again using the BIOS flash downloaded from the dell site...and to run the chipset just might
Good luck my friend, hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you kindly

Error 2000 0334

This is from Dell.
Error 2000-0334 indicates a problem with LCD panel, cable. As the video is fine on the external monitor, there is no problem with the video card or mother board.
To confirm the error message please run the LCD BIST on the laptop to check if there is any problem with the LCD screen.
To initiate LCD BIST:
  • Connect the AC adapter to your computer.
  • Hold the letter <D> on your keyboard and then turn on your computer.
    You will see four colors (grey, red, green, and blue) on the screen in a sequence.
If you see any colors on the screen the LCD screen is fine.
Or if you find the giant fuzzy black vertical line or if the colors are seen only on have of the screen during the test, then the problem is with the LCD screen and LCD needs to be replaced.

Dell Vostro 220 won't turn on. Checked plug with volt meter and getting power to power supply. Back green light is illuminated. Could it be the mother board?

Usually that happens when there is a power spike and the internal resistance gets fried. It's easily replaceable by anyone with medium to high technical skills but I recommend sending it to be serviced (especially if you're in warranty). This resistance's purpose is to protect the motherboard (it fries so that the motherboard doesn't) so don't worry, it's nothing major.

White line in middle of screen vostro 1500

The video processor, like T'Con board with LCD Tvs, is faulty. If it is with the motherboard, directly soldered to, mother board should be replaced. OK.

The screen has a box that says : 1:Analog input Self Test Feature Check Red (line across) Green (line across) Blue (line across) White (line across) if you push the menu botton you get a other screen...

The issue is that the monitor in not getting the signal. This tells me that the video adapter ( or on board video) has went bad. Try another video card if all your doing is social media and surfing you can pick one up for around 20.00

My dell vostro 1710 laptop computer screen is black.

First, try reseating the memory modules in the laptop.

If still nothing, try removing the hard drive, CD/DVD Drive, and memory one at a time (in that order) see if anything makes it boot.

Replace the parts and try booting again.

The error flashing means a processor failure. If you are knowledgeable you can try re-seating the processor.

However, if your unit is in warranty I would call Dell and have them replace the main board and the memory modules as a set. Warning: They will make you go thru these same tests even if you already have.

Another monitor problem

Its a graphics card thing or a connector loose. If graphics then as it is integrated with the main board there is nothing that can be done. If it is a loose connector- well can you or any one take a look see A repair shop perhaps?
