I suspect if its starting the boot process then shutting down.
Problem may be

3 Installation improper.
4 Or hard drive or bad Memory ( Memory Failed)
5: Mother Board damaged

Got an interesting issue. I've got a dell inspiron 531 with a dell ry206 motherboard. Bad news is, when I boot up the pc, the power turns on, the fans turn on, but that's it!, only CD ROM and cpu fans...

Open up the case,after unpluging pc.

Remove memory sticks one at a time.After you removed one try pc again.

If it boots up normally then you know that memory stick is bad.Also check your keyboard by unpluging and pluging back in while booting up.

More then likley this is bad memory.

Optiplex gx280 won't boot and cpu fan goes faster

Sounds like a bad motherboard, I try resetting the bios , removing everything but the video , could be a bad power supply too (if you have one jump the wires in there as a test). you can buy those dell MBs cheap on fleabay.

My system shuts off abruptly....

Download Coretemp from here:

Run this program and see if your processor is really getting hot(or at least the system thinks so). You could have a bad processor, bad heat sink, motherboard, fan, etc. The first step though is to see what the system "thinks" is going on.

You might need to cool the machine down first to be sure that you can get to the point of being able to run the test. Watch the temp and see what happens. Hopefully it will give us some clues.

I'd download the program on another compute and put it on a memory stick so you'll be able to get it running ASAP when the system boots.

Is this a laptop or a desktop? Also, if a desktop, is it a namebrand or whitebox/clone?

If it's a desktop one thing you can try as a temporary fix/diagnosis aid is run the machine with the cover off and a powerful fan blowing directly on the processor.

Hi, Ive got a inspiron 530s (slimline) that won't boot, front LED stays solid abmer and fans turn over once but no boot. Changed PSU and reseated all components, neither helped. Think its the motherboard...

Yes. It is 0RY007. Check the following links.

You should call Dell and ask them for a new one though. They would send you the correct part.

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run

Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.

Computer keeps shutting down

Did you download the latest drivers from dell web page? I had a similar problem with my Dell D620. The problem was the chipset drivers. I downloaded the chipset drivers from dell and the the problem disappeared.

Problem with Dell Inspiron 1100 series laptop

Most certainly a non working fan would cause this behavior. Laptops are much more susceptible to overheating. Fan failures can be hastened by regularly blocking the fan by doing things like using it on a pillow or soft surface. The behavior is exactly what you think.
