Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Bumped the front of modem yesterday and the screen went black. I shut all the main power off to the computer and when I tried to turn power back on it started beeping and the power will not come back on. I NEED HELP. There is nothing loose inside the modem.
Open the side panel on the computer case (make sure its turned off and the power cord is removed from the back) take out the system memory (ram), get a clean dry paintbrush and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean any dust away from the slots it goes into, once you are happy that all the dust has gone reseat the memory making sure its well seated and clipped into place, close the side panel, return the power cord and turn on the PC, hopefully this will sort the problem out.
Please post back with the results.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
