Is there any lights showing on it at all? Put your ear to the back of the computer to listen if you hear the power supply fan running. you should feel air coming out the back where the fans are spinning.

There are 3 things that could be bad. 1. Power supply 2. Motherboard 3. Videocard is bad. If the videocard is build onto the motherboard then you know it's just the motherboard that is bad.

First thing to start with is replacing the powersupply make sure you take your old one to the store so you can the correct type.

Good Luck

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

    How do i unlock my dell keyboard?


    Dell Inspiron 530s keyboard unlock
    Is the keyboard usb or ps2? If its usb then try another port. If its ps2(Green) then power down the pc by holding in the power button for 8 to 10 seconds. Pull the plug and make sure no pins are bent. Plug it back in and boot back up. This should fix the problem if its ps2. Regards
