Question about Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron 530S was on and operating fine when it sudden froze; nothing would work. We did a hard boot on the hard drive and now it will power on the fan only & it runs constantly. It did a series of 4 beeps, but is no longer doing that. Any ideas?

My dell Inspiron 530s goes to power save mode screen is black can't see anything fan is on what can I do


Do you get a screen if you boot from the CD/DVD drive using the Windows installation CD/DVD disc. If not, you probably dis-lodged
a cable or plug when installing the drive.

Cannot format new hard drive and install windows XP on a dell 530S


Are you sure your Recovery Disk has the operating system on it? If so, you should be able to just put it in the cd drive and boot from it to do the install. Make sure you hit the Function Key (F1 thru F12) that will allow you to select which device you want to boot from (Select the CD Drive).

Once it start sometimes you'll still have to watch the screen and press any key to boot from the cd when prompted.

Turn on my computer Inspiron 530S starts to boot up gives the dell booting page then goes to 0 Diskette error choose F1 to continue and F2 to start setup. I have tried F2 and change it to no floppy disk...


Sounds like someone may have left a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive. Check to be sure there isn't a floppy in the drive. Also, when in setup, it's the boot order that you'll want to change.

Inspiron 530S Power Save Mode Loop


First you need to make sure that there are no other removable devices plug on the system, like usb, external hard drives, then if that will work try to go to the bios, press f2 when you see the dell logo, and go to the system setup, go to the boot device configuration and make sure that removable device is not the first boot device, if it is the first one choose hard disk and then second boot device ad cd rom/dvd rom and then disable the 3rd boot and the fourth boot device. Make sure to save the changes. And restart the system again. Once the computer is back and running try to go to support.dell.com and check the bios, download if there is a bios update for the system.
