Question about Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My son was playing a game and he said (I wasn't there at the time) that it froze and he pressed the power button on the front to turn off the computer. Now when I press the power button to turn on the pc, the fan turns on the lights on the cd drives light up and then I hear 2 beeps. The monitor is dark but I know it's not the monitor because when I disconnect the monitor cable the screen comes up with a "No Signal" message. The diagnostic codes in the back read: A,B,C lights green and D light is yellow. What do I look at next? How do I troubleshoot? Thanks!

This is a case of Loose Connection. Reconstruct the wiring once again. I believe the wire that goes to Monitor is Loose. Power is there, as its shows No Signal.

Check all the wires, reconstruct and if the problem still persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

Restart the system. Press the power button on the system front for 10 secs or more. This will force the system to shut down. After some time turn on the system again. Also check the system is in a place where it is getting enough air to cool down as over heating also tend to shut down the sysytem
