    Things to Check When No boot...
    1. Have you connected all the power cable?

    Yes.


    2. Do you see any display?(including the power lights glowing)

    Power button glows amber, dvd and cd rom drives run, floppy runs then nothing. No A,B,C,D lights on in back.
    3. Does the screen show you any blue screen error message?

    No error message, only that when I push a button on the screen it says move mouse or hit any key to continue.
    4. Do you hear any beep noises?

    No noises.
    5. Have you tried to install any third party hardware or software?

    I'm in Italy, and before I could say anything a tech, attempting to install the equivilant of a DSL line, plugged in the modem prior to installing the software. I don't know if that would do it or not.
    6. What do you think could have caused the issue?

    Could have been a surge, although I was using a surge protector, other than that the #5 issue could have done it. I've tried booting with everying running with just the video card up and I get the same result. I've even tried to boot from a cd and floppy, with no results.



    Motherboard or Power Supply Unit? If it could be another issue let me know what you think.



    Thanks

How do I restore a Dimension 8250 to original factory settings? It's running XP. Control F11, F8, and using the system restore feature does not seem to do the trick.


to restore to your pc as it was from the factory you will need the cd's that came with the computer. one of those will be the Operating System cd. Once you have located the correct cd, boot from that cd and follow the instructions to reinstall the operating system.

Ok first, I am sorry to tell you the Dimension 8250 is not VISTA compatible. Especially with that video card. Vista is a power hog and has high demands of your PC. You should really revert back to XP if you want things running normal.
