When i start up my dimension 3100 dell desktop instead of a green light i get a flashing amber light. people say it is the power supply but the light wouldnt even come on if it was. can you please help me?

No, the light WOULD come on if it was a Power Supply problem.

1) If ALL of the LED lights on your computer were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Dell Dimension 3100 desktop computer?
An Intel Pentium 4.

Intel Pentium 4 model 640.
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 3.2GigaHertz. (3.2GHz)
Fits in a Socket 775 processor socket. (Also know as Socket T)

Can use up to 84 Watts.

You have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

I get no sound from my dell dimension 5100.

First check the (correct plugs, ports, and volume settings) If those are correct you may want to check the device manager to see if there is a missing audio driver. if you have XP it's easy just right click on "My Computer"->Properties->Hardware Tab-> Device manager. if there is an Exclamation Point ( ! ) or yellow yield sign that means that your driver is missing or out of date. To fix that, go to the dell website and download the correct driver. hope this helps

I have a message the audio service is not running when i click enable nothing. i cant get sound

If you haven't already tried restarting the service, please try that. Also, check Device Manager to see if any of your sound devices have a yellow exclamation next to them. If they do, there's a possible problem with the audio drivers. Go to Dell's support site and download the appropriate drivers for your model.

How to repair my internet connection

Hi. Right click on My Computer\Manage\Device Manager. Does your Audio and Network Adapter show up under Other Devices, with a yellow exclamation point? Right click on one of them and select Uninstall, and then reboot. On reboot, Windows should see new hardware. Follow the prompt to have Windows search for the driver, it should find it as it's already on your system. When it finds it, allow it to load it.

If that does not work go to Select "Support and Help" and then "Drivers and Downloads". You can then enter the Svc code of your Dell and you will find yourself on a download page with drivers made for your model Dimension.
