I have a dell dimensione521 that was i believe was zapped..

I have a dell dimension e521 that was i believe was zapped by the "antivirus 360" scam. i closed the pop-up window it showed up in from the taskbar (not by clicking it directly) then ran a scan. when it told me to restart the pc i did, but when it came back up the pc loaded and the monitor turned on and went directly to sleep, what can i do to "wake up" my monitor to make sure my system no longer has the virus in it???

My desktop dell dimension E521 won't come on. The power button just blinks green. A new power supply was tried but that did not work. What is it likely to be and is it gonna be worth fixing?


E521 motherboards are pretty reasonable: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=dell+e521+motherboard&_sacat=See-All-Categories so it is worthwhile to fix.
The 570 is a decent system although I am still an Intel guy myself

Dell Dimension E521 bad sectors


Hi there.
Hard to believe but this can be common depending on the manufacturer of the hard drive as some are not that good at all, some Maxtor's for example.
The best hard drives you can buy at the moment are Western Digital and Seagate, these drives come with 3 - 5 years guarantee so if they develop bad sectors they will replace the the drives free.
The best way to look after your drives is to perform a sector check once a month and keep your internet cache cleared, use a program called Ccleaner to clear the cache and temp files and also keep the registry clean.
I would also recommend you defragment your drive as soon as you have installed a clean operating system or defrag once a month too, that way you will get your full life from the hard drive.
