Press F8 during startup to show the boot options. Boot to VGA mode (if available) or safe mode and change your resolution in windows to the recommended 1280X1080. To do this in XP just right click on the desktop and select 'properties', click on the right-most tab and move the slider.

In Vista this would be right-click desktop, select 'personalise', click 'display settings' and move slider.

Hope this helps,

erch.

Try changing your power settings.
Go under your Control Panel. Then access your Power Options. Edit when to turn off computers display.
This should get your power save mode to prevent any errors/bugs.

Processor continues to run and my moniter screen says power save mode before it turns completely black


Sounds like a bug in your Monitors wire. I would recommend you to clean the connectors of Monitor wires and then insert them to sockets in your computers back ports tightly. That might solve your problem. If you still have problem then i would recommend you to repair your monitor's Data Wire, that wont cost you much.

Good luck, and have a nice day ! =)

Reset or Clear CMOS because maybe it hang-up some devices that are plug-in to. You can do that by removing the Lithium Battery on the Motherboard. This tips are only technician can do that but to solve your problems like this, this is a tip. And also check your Memory Module.
Hope this might help you, good luck!

Computer would not boot up, only showed red light


I'd say power supply first.

If you have an expansion slot filled with a video card, remove the video card (provided you have onboard video connector as well) then try to reboot. I just went through similar issues with an GForce video card, it went bad, but the machine appeared to boot althugh I couldn't see the screen. Removed the card & it came up using minimal VGA drivers provide with WinXP.

Obviously you cannot check the video driver if you're not booting up...and seeing the screen.

Find a buddy with a regular monitor and hook it up and try to boot. Dell monitors sometimes require their propietary drivers, so write down the model when you take your pc to a friend's place, and DL the driver and install it (provided you got it to boot up)

Replacing the battery on dell e510 - floppy disk drive not present


Replacing a laptop battery should not make a drive all of a sudden not appear.

You will have to enter the BIOS of the computer by hitting the required key stated at the first screen when Turning on the computer (usual located at the very bottom, it's almost always F2 or Tab or Delete)

Once in the BIOS the very first screen visible to you should tell you the drives hooked up to the machine VIA IDE or SATA. See if your HDD is located there.

Speakers killed my moniter


Well as you have already tried disconnecting the peripherals from your computer, and tried restarting the computer too which did not help you, it sounds to be an hardware issue with the monitor. However if incase you have not tried this, you can disconnect the monitor completely from the tower, power on the monitor, if it powers on and you get a message as no signal, your monitor is working good. If not replace the monitor. If the message appears on the monitor screen, disconnect everything from the tower, push and hold the power button on the tower for a minute. Connect just the monitor and check for any display. If you do get display, thats good, connect one device at a time and check to see if the display appears.

If theres no display with just the monitor connected, the issue would be with the graphics card. You may need to replace it or get the system repaired.
