Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

Won't load windows...

It powers up but the monitor is a blank black screen. Is this the motherboard? harddrive? Everything in the tower sounds like it starts up but my screen continues to be blank.. My tower has a solid yellow light and my moniter also holds the solid yellow light like its not responding to the tower at all.... The fan is on and it sounds as tho my hard drive is working also... I'm just stuck on what i should do... I took the memory out and unplugged and replugged the hard drive same results still... What could possibly be the problem?

( Dell xps m1530 laptop ) Monitor blank, powers up but screen won't come on.


It ISN'T the LCD screen. Since you diagnosed with an external VGA monitor, you now know the problem is the laptop.

(When you connect an external VGA monitor to a laptop, you are bypassing the Video Cable, and LCD screen. You are connected directly to the laptop )

The basic Windows files aren't being found. The boot files. This may mean a bad Harddrive.

Do you have the Restoration CD Disk? Laptop on insert it into the optical drive tray, close the tray.
When asked choose - Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

If a checkdisk is done, you have bad sectors on the harddrive.
There IS a special procedure in replacing a harddrive.

Hi..
You nearly got it.....
Take the harddrive back out and format it on your tower,make sure it,s the right format,then place the harddrive back into the laptop and then install windows from your laptop..
Because if you install windows from your tower,your motherboard from your tower install the componants it needs to run from the windows disc,therefore it won,t run on your laptop because it,s a different motherboard...

Hope this helps...if it does please take the time to rate it,as i,ve taken the time the answer you..

Switch on computer tower and screen. Screen brings up LG logo and 'Activating power saving' then the screen shuts down. The tower continues to load Windows etc but I can't see a thing as the screen is...


For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then go to start menu->run type in run "chkdsk /r" without "" then restart computer then it fix errors .
If still not able to see windows then again press F8 then enter in enabler vga mode then go to display property and change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok then check.
If still same then you need windows disk boot computer with that disk.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then enter in bios then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit then it boot with that disk.
Follow the procedure and enter in recovery console then type "chkdsk /r" then it fix errors on harddrive then after completion restart it again boot and this time choose "repair previous windows" then it repairs it then you can use windows again.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Most likely, bad motherboard.

Cost. about $150 on ebay

This is assuming you've pulled the HDD and optical drive, tried RAM modules individually.

Compaq V5005us is weird. Powers on with black screen and freezes


It sounds like your Video card and/or motherboard are starting to give out or your LCD is giving way. Try plugging the laptop into an external screen and see if it still acts strangely or even displays on the external monitor.

hi Lus;
What color do you have on the power button of your monitor? Check the VGA port at the back of your computer, how many VGA ports do you have? if you have 2, try the other port instead,

here is a VGA port:

Green light blinking screen blank


Hi Suzee,

Is the green flashing on the tower or the monitor?

If it is flashing on the monitor, then it might be tht the monitor is not gettign signal from the tower.
To check, disconnect the monitor from the tower and check the monitor. If you get a msg on the screen like no input signal or check video cable, then 99% monitor is fine.

Check for the power supply light at the back of the tower.

Disconnect everything from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the comp for about 30 seconds.

Then connect the cables and check if it is working.
