Re: No power

It sounds like you need to replace the power supply. If you don't see or hear your cooling fan come on in your power supply. Then it needs to be replaced. I know you did a few tricks. If you will do one thing more. Disconnect everything and if possible pull any cards in yor system except you video. No power to hard drives or cd's ect.. If still no fan then bad power supply.

Pay attention to steps 6 & 7

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

My cpu doesnt start when switched on , it shows the 3 & 4 lights, I tried to reinstall the memory modules-I removed and installed them as per the Dell Manual but still it dint start, please advise.

This sounds like you have bad capacitors on the motherboard, this is a very common model. They can be replaced and your system brought back to life. Here is a picture of what to look for. Open your computer and look at the motherboard capacitors, if they are bulging like the picture then you need to replace them. The tops should be flat if they are bulging or domed at all then they are bad. You can desolder them and replace them for about $12 in parts. If you find them do a google search for "Dell gx620 motherboard repair" for information about replacing them. buddymc.jpg

We have an approx. 6 (7?) yr old Dell Dimension 4500 Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.80 GHz, and I think we upgraded the RAM a bit a few years back. The computer runs extremely slowly...we've tried removing...

Well an actual very good idea is to reinstall the operating system. This will help the system a lot even if it's an old system.
Here is a tips&tricks that will help you in the future:

Try a defragmentation of the primary partition and uncheck some of the unnecessary software that open with the operating system from Run-msconfig.

If you need further assistance please leave a comment.

My cd draw doesnt oep easily

If it is under warranty I would have them replace the CD drive, if nor then I would try to update the software for the CD drive, you can get its manufacturer and part number by getting SIW from Gabriel Topalas website and looking under the appropriate heading. Once you have that info get all the updated software and see if that does the trick.

If thats not it, then replace the CD drive, I recommend purchasing a new one at, and have a local tech install it, this will be faster and cheaper than a Big Box, and they will usually show you what they are doing(I do).

If you need more help get back to me, I CAN solve this problem.

Trying to do a factory restall of Dell demnension 2400

typically you don't need to press ctrl at all -- usually f11 does the trick -- or going into accessories and system tools and looking for factory restore or something similar, the program has different names depending on the manufacturer. System Restore will only bring it back to a previous date...

Fuzzy pictures

Yes the keyword is might. Usually the NVidia cards are compatible for any system, that is a little strange, I wouldn't fret about this problem so much, if the computer is old, it may not be worth the effort. In time you could look forward to getting a new one. If you use a computer primarily for music and videos, get a Gateway, if you use a computer for business and internet browsing, get a Dell, but if you do every thing in between, I'd definitely recommend an IBM.

Good luck!
