Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Does not totally power up. Seems to stop and start over as if in a loop. Nothing shows up on the monitor. I tried loading linux from a disk, but the drive is not reading the disks I guess because it never starts up fully. What can I do to fix the problem?

It has failed to load the windows operating system, that why it is showing the DOS prompt.
You need to reload a working operating system such as Linux from disk to see what the problem is.

My Acer Aspire 6530g stopped working after I tried to install Linux. The computer went off without any error message during the installation, and now when I try to boot it, it won't even go to the BIOS....


The installation of Linux cannot affect the BIOS of your computer.
Did you install Linux on the Hard drive or did you just run a DEMO from a LiveCD?
If you used the Demo it will disappear from your computer once you turn ii off. If you did install Linux on the hard drive, it will take the whole space of the disk and you won't have any Windows OS. When it boots it boots the Linux Image. Regardless you will be prompted to select the OS you want to boot. If you do not select one of the option it will boot the first in the list.

Hp mini 210-1041nr does not boot up. Keeps looping at startup to did not start successfully


Teaching complex computer topics in text box will never be short.)
PC has vast POINTS OF FAILURE< it was an airplane it be crashed long ago and turned into beer cans.

there are only 2 paths, to any new OS.
(HP media kit or F11) (the HDD must be good. first)

no OS stated, why post not saying what OS is here ,XP?
the ESC key does it work>? guess yes.
this is first test. of all modern HP puters.
power on, (hammer , the ESC key) as the screen tells you do do in white text... see that>?
IF BIOS is alive and the battery inside is not shorted (take it out)
then the F11 key works
if someone (the bad guy) installed, a newer or same OS from a microsoft disk , (NOT HP) then not the PC is slammed.
the F11 is dead.
F11 is the hidden HP restore PARTITION.
here are the tests. in the correct order. on all ; PC , ill post them now. (modern HP only)
1: does BIOS work? Esc key , F2, F9, f10 , f11, )
all BIOS keys most respond at power on, if not the battery is shorted. remove it and continue. (end LT horror 1)
2: screen works , bios works, all bios keyswork even F11 tries to work but does not get to the blue restore pages....
3: if all the above, seems to work but only F11 fails that means 1 of 2 things, the HDD id dead, or the HDD was corrupted.
4: at this point we boot to good old and FREE, Knoppix,V7 media.
we boot it and do the HDD tests NOW,
be a waste of time loadning ANY OS on any bad HDD now, totally time waster to extremes.....
here is how to do that. easy. l
Click linux start button , yah just like windoz
then type disk, or find it in there. run DISK
this is disk testing. see the SMART menu , if the smart data shows
unrecoverable sectors, the HDD is TOASTED, its END OF LIFE.
A FACT.
if the disk test fails, the HDD is toasted worse.

http://www.pcdied.com/brick-dead.html#Knoppix

Ok knoppix boots, if not the PC is far far sicker than you think,.

ok this works ok.
the OS on your PC is wrecked.
so load it.
if F11 is dead, that means the HP restore partition is wrecked.
corrupted. as can happen using NON HP restore disks (media)
the correct path now is here.

the HP offical Medial kit from HP, we are not HP we are chat box fixya. (nobody!)

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143


F11 may take you here on any 2006 or newer HP PC

the F11 key runs the HP Recovery partition, installer setup prog.
and land here, on a new PC or any not slammed, with wrong OS.
restore-f11-da0cv3s1i5gku1eufa4qjtra-4-0.jpg power on, hammer, F11, F11.,f11, from 1 second to 5 sec.
repeat power on if F11 did not respond. power off first.
the newer the PC the more choices here.

Laptop keeps restarting after getting to icons then reboots again. chkdsk never completes index check .


the HDD is bad.
even a 3 foot drop , is 100 G force, ends it.
if turned off can take taller drop.

run the linux disk test, if that fails HDD is dead.
like most this old

boot to ubuntu (free) live CD
run disk test, ( or from uSB stick booted to Linux live)
if that test fails, the HDD is end of life.
or the smart test shows the errors in this link

The monitor does not power up. no power light comes on, there is nothing that shows up on the screen. All cables are well connected and yes the power switch is on.


check by changing the power cord if this does not solve the problem the fault is in the power of the monitor better call technician or take it to the service centre

Computer monitor don't work at all.


So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

Acer 1716 seems to start but will not pick up signal from OS


There probably is an error in the hard drive, since its not booting up. I would replace the hard drive, or take it to your local computer repair shop. I hope this helps!
