    have you installed memory lately...or unseated it and reinstalled?? Often, a video problem is due to the memory. Carefully, remove your memory, reinstall making sure it is all the way in its slot and locked. Make sure you unplug your main power and turn off monitor before you remove the memory. When it is back in and tight.......plug the main power cord back in.....then turn on your monitor and restart your puter..... Do you get any beeps when you boot up??? Hope this helps

    Were you able to see the Dell Logo on restart? If you did not see any dell logo on restart do you get any beeps? If you do not hear any beeping sound check the color of the light both on the monitor and the tower... what color are they? Do you see any diagnostic lights on your system. Which lights are on? Have you tried a different cable?

If your monitor is fine try changing the data cable to one you know to be working. If it still does not work then the graphics card needs to be replaced.

Whining fan dell E520 computer


Replace the fan as soon as possible. If the noise suddenly stops, DON'T assume the problem corrected itself. More likely, the fan completely froze and stopped spinning entirely and you're at risk of overheating something inside. Generally, there are usually 3 fans in a desktop computer (cpu/heatsink, case, and power supply) and sometimes a 4th fan if the computer has a separate graphics card. Laptops usually only have one fan.

I have a Dell Dimension E520 that I've used for


If the power LED is solid Amber, then the like answer is a bad motherboard or peripheral connected to it. So, remove any expansion cards (I See you already removed the Graphics card) and all external connections (Just use power cord) and see if the system will power on with any different indications. If the power LED stays Solid Amber, replace the motherboard

I installed a ASUS GeForce GT430 (ENGT430) about a month ago and it worked great. Now when I turn my desktop on, it never posts but just sounds a bunch of long buzzes. If I remove the 430 card and plug...


The graphic card could most likely be dead. If when you turn on the computer, you hear a series of beeps, either long or short, it could be a boot error code. Writting down the sequence could give further explanation of the error.

I turned off the Dell Dimension e520 before a storm. I have tried numerous times to turn it back on, only to have a yellow flashing light. How can I get my computer to turn on?


Good day.


Here's my point of view of you problem. I have also experienced the same problem since it is always raining here in the Philippines. I just have to ask a few questions before i can give a direct solution to you.
Please provide the following:
1. Do you have a voltage regulator in your computer set. 2. Do you hear a beeping sound everytime you turn your computer on after the incident happened? 3. Does the processor fan still runs after turning your PC on or not? 4. Kindly provide your computer specs.
Good day and should you have any questions regarding the questions, feel free to approach us.

No power on dell e520 dimension


On the 20 pin connector, short the green wire to any black wire with a paperclip. This will force the power supply to turn on manually if the motherboard is not giving the correct "ON" signal.
