    are the fans running and what does it do, does it shut down a couple seconds after you turn it on? after you put the processor on did you put thermal paste on?

The new processor may not be compatible with your motherboard or BIOS.
Also, if something happend to the computer during the BIOS upgrade (a power surge etc.) then your motherboard could pretty much be ruined.

Dell precision 530 bios ssd


This is a little bit long shot, but check also if there is an updated firmware for the SSD (you will need access to another machine in order to upgrade it). I will look up if I find either a bios for the Dell that is working or another solution

My desktop has an orange light no beep sounds when starting it won't boot up the back where ethernet plug goes is orange too the fan makes a burning smell also


Orange light usually means the harddrive or computer is processing and loading, But it can also mean that there is a problem with the hard drive. Start your computer and wait. If you see orange light it means its working to boot up, it might take a while, you might see your screen black for a while but eventually will work.

To fix this problem you need to upgrade more hard drive space, RAM memory and processor speed

Nowadays a computer should have a minimum of 2GB of RAM memory, at least 120GB of Space, and about 2.0Ghz of processing speed.

You can also buy great refurbished computers which are cheaper. Most of them come with 4GB of RAM memory, 250GB HD Space and 2.5Ghz processing speed.

please make certain your memory chips are seated into the mainboard. Also, make sure that your mainboards power cable, and your CPU's power cable (the small yellow and black one) are secured to the board. If your components are secured to the board correctly, you may have an issue with the board, CPU, or power supply. If your pc is under warranty, I suggest you contact Dell for troubleshooting.

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520


Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

Check all of the electrical connections to all devices in the machine, especially the motherboard. Many times this is a result of a poor connection being jarred loose during a move.

Dell Inspiron 530 boots then the screens turn off to orange light


Is the PC actually doing to sleep or is the display just amber with the fan and power light on the PC still running?

Do you have multiple video cards or multiple ports?
You may have the monitor plugged into the non-default port on your video card or the wrong card. Try plugging the monitor into another port as the PC should use all outputs when booting but then define a default display once the driver is loaded. Also take a look at the default video display in your BIOS settings. Depending on what your setup is you should be able to choose between (onboard, PCI, AGP)

Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530


Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

Tower will not power up


The light is orange instead of its normal color cause the motherboard is bad and needs to be replaced. It means its not recognizing either the memory or the cpu properly.
