Fixed it by replacing the memory with a different brand.

Crucial Ballistix didn't work, Corsair did.

I assume you mean the HDD,reset,on switch etc where they plug onto the mobo.

Most mobos are labelled on the board but you will need good eyesight to read. They are labelled HDD, RESET, SPEAKER etc.

If not simply look up mobo manual from vendors site. You will need the DELL serial / part number from the old unit though.

Sounds like a dead motherboard, i had the same problem a while back, with my custom built pc, that or try a new power supply. but i'd say it was the mobo though. a new one cost as cheap as 40 bucks i'd say depending on what your hardware is, you friendly neghborhood pc shop can help you, fyi, build your own pc its cheaper!

PC wont Boot/start


The first thing you should do is swap the power supply for a known good one,
If this is a new build that hasn't worked from the start follow the instructions here:
