    According with Dell all the lights in the back of the machine must be all green for the computer to be functioning ok, about beep codes the machine doesn't make any kind of sound and I don't either have any error during the boot-up. The monitor I did test it in another computer and it is good. When I run the Dell diagnostic test it tells me that the hard drive is not good, but why it test ok in another computer?

Hi lidio7, I would like you to click the link below & scroll down till you see Diagnostic Codes. Please follow the instructions listed.

In your post above you mentioned all the lights in the back of computer are all ok!
Does that mean you are seeing all four light ( A, B, C, & D ) show solid green?

Please varify the colors of the four lights. I suspect light A is yellow, B is green, C is yellow & D is green.
Double check the monitor cable. Make sure it is connected & tight at both ends (PC & monitor). If all lights are green can you possibly connect a different monitor? Any VGA monitor will do.
If you can connect another monitor & your video display returns you have a problem the your monitor.
Please check all of the above & post back here as a follow up.
Scroll down a bit more to Beep Codes.

If the monitor cannot display errors or problems, during POST the computer might emit a series of beeps, or beep code, that identifies the problem. Pay close attention for these beeps.

Try all of the above & let me know your findings. We can go from there.

Thank you for your time.

If you hit <F12> key upon boot-up and the monitor displays a boot menu, then you probably have an issue with your XP software. Meaning that you may have to re-install XP (by the way, XP is no longer supported).

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

Trying to restore dell 4400 and cannot get to a dell screen for f-12


If you boot from the XP CD and choose the first repair option it will load to a DOS prompt. From there type "chkdsk /r" and press enter. This will run checkdisk on your hard drive and repair any problems that it finds. It will take 45 minutes or more depending on the size of your drive. Once it finishes type exit to reboot and remove the CD. Your computer should boot normally.

Dell dem 3000 will not turn on


What you need to do Is to take the Operating System reinstall disk that you got with your computer and boot from that. Once you get to the main screen press the option for a repair. Follow instructions on the screen. If you need more detail on how to do this just tell me and I will help.

All The Best,

MONITOR GOES BLANK


Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.
