Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook

2 Answers

Dell dimension 1100 will not power up.

The computer was unplugged while on and now it will not turn on?

When I turn it on the only thing that happens is a yellow light turns on above the power button.

Be very simple because I am not computer smart.

How do I connect a 20X super all write to a Dell Dimension 1100 computer .The pins on the data lead apear to be different and the power lead apears to be missing from the unit I purchased.


Hi,

To my understanding, your new Lite-On LH-20A1L 20x Super AllWrite DVD±RW/RAM is a SATA whereas your Dell Dimension 1100 has only DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) EIDE. it will not work nor the connectors fit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The beeps signal that you have a hardware failure - when you blew the dust or swapped the cd unit you unhooked some power cables or moved inadvertently some components. Open the pc's and make sure everything is plugged correctly - press them all to be sure.

Computer will not turn on. It is like the on off switch is broke. Any solutions


Unplug the power cable from the back on the PC. If your ok with opening up the case, remove the side panel and then the front cover where you can see the power button, don't pull too hard. Check to see if the wires are broken. If not, try clicking on the power button from the inside to turn on the pc.

How do i open my desktop dell dimension 1100 - not finding any screws to turn or so on the back of the deskptop


For Dell brand computers, most of these computers have 2 "buttons" on the side. Push and hold these 2 buttons and hold the bottom of the computer case and pull up while holding those 2 buttons.
This should work on most Dell computers.

Dimension 5100 will not turn on


Try checking your Computer Management Services.

I had a similiar problem with a laptop. Just stopped working one day. Could not shutdown because it would not restart without disconnecting power. Could not reboot, because it would not restart without power being disconnected.

Checked Computer Management Services and found some of the services had been turned off.

Try this and let me know if you need more help.

Computer will not turn on at all. Dell Dimension 5100 desktop


I would unplug the power supply from the motherboard, wait a little while and then plug it back in.
Try to power everything back up and it should come up.

I am assuming you are getting a light on the motherboard that indicates power is being supplied?

Dell dimension e510 won't turn on


Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.
