SOURCE: DELL MASTER RESET?????

When booting up to Win XP you may get a error that reads "Unmountable Boot Volume". This is probably because your boot.ini file is messed up.

You should be able to restore your windows installation.

SOURCE: My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image

You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 2400 - Adding second HD

I presume that the hard drives are ATA drives, and if the WD and Maxtor are installed on the same IDE cable then the boot drive, the WD HD needs to have the jumper set to Master or Master with Slave drive, and the Maxtor needs the jumper set to Slave drive.
If the computer on boot up doesn't recognise the boot drive the move the jumper to the CSL setting.

If the Maxtor is on the second IDE cable it does not matter if the jumper to either Master or Slave provided you do not have anything else connected to this cable. If you have a CD or DVD connected to the second IDE cable as well as the Maxtor HD then you need to check the devices on this cable (ie. the jumpers) are not set the same on both devices.

On boot up go into the BIOS and check that the master and slave devices are set to Auto (detect).

You should after booting up now see both hard drives and any CD/DVD.
The data on the Maxtor drive would include your original Windows and programs and data, you would need to remove these redundant files and programs to recover disk space.

If you can see on boot up all the hard drives and CD/DVD (as master and slave drives) but if you do not see the Maxtor drive from My Computer, then you need to delete the partition on the Maxtor drive, create a new partition, and format the drive, in this case you will not recover any of your original data.
To do this, you need to go to the Control Panel, Then Administrative Tools, then Computer Management then Disk Management. Right Click on Disk 1 (it should show a 80 Gb hard drive), delete the partition, then it would show this as an unallocated drive.
Right Click on this drive again and create a primary partition, follow the instructions and format the drive in NTFS file format.

The orange light continuously blinks on my NEC MultiSync FE990. I'm thinking it might possibly be the video cable which is attached to the monitor. If this sounds like the problem, how would I...


It could either be the Monitor has gone bad, the video card in your tower, or the cable connecting the two, the orange light signifies that the system is not getting the signal from the tower. Try replacing the VGA cable, if this is not an option try using the monitor on a different computer, if still no picture then the monitor is no good, if you get a picture try a second monitor with your desktop. If you get no picture then it is time for a new motherboard or graphics card. As far as replacing the cable if it is one piece with the monitor, it isn't recommended unless you a very comfortable opening the monitor up, in which case you risk causing more damage.

In a move my NEC MultiSync 5FG monitor got disconnected from its BNC cable (5 BNC). Now I don't know which leads connects to which ports. Can anyone help?


The cable should be labeled with R (RED video signal), G (GREEN video signal), B (BLUE video signal), V (Vertical Sync signal), and H (Horizontal Sync signal), so you just have to match the plug to the sockets.
I hope it is clear explanations.

Hi I just bought 7 NEC Multisync LCD1550v monitors and they all have the same problem. when plugged in all i get is a blinking power light. 1 of them showed signs of life for just a second but that was it....


You buy a new LCD Monitors, now still not working., if that new LCD Monitor is OK, then check your VGA Card, its inside the CPU maybe its broke or not connect properly inside. This are the cause of not displaying in your LCD Monitors.
If you here some beeps of your CPU then find out how many beeps and tell us here immediately.
