SOURCE: no power to my dell dimension 4550

It might be a couple of things bad powersupply or power button incorrect ram module or hard drive settings ,if not then lastly have a bad motherboard which we all hate. you said you have a a green light on motherboard? Did you upgrade or install any new ram ,harddrives etc check make sure they are seated properly in their sockets and free from dust check connection on the ram module make sure it shinny brass color if not you can use an eraser to clean them. If you have upgraded check make sure the ram is compatible to your machine sometimes the wrong ram install can cause no power up problem. Do you have four green lights in the back of machine? Dell new desktop has 4 green light in back of the unit . if all four light are green then system is ok but one out of the four light are orange then you have a problem. You can go onto dell web sight for your machine to check out these lights codes. I hope this help you out some.

SOURCE: my dell desktop is just making a ticking noise and won't turn on

So the computer will not post! Try these steps.

So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button.
Try to boot the pc.

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker, put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.


That covers almost everything,,

If still nothing then possibly bad Motherboard or CPU.

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

PSU's put out several different voltages if the 12Vs isn't working it won't power the motherboard. Some outputs may still be functioning therefore you may see some lights on and even some fans running. Replace the PSU.

Will not turn on when power button is Dell Inspiron 518 will not turn on when power button is pressed. Green LED on back of powersupply lights and orange LED on motherboard turns on. No fan operation on...


Green LED on back of power supply indicates it's getting power. That does not mean that it's distributing the power voltages to the computer. You could have a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. Just to make surethat nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem,video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cablesto CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
