I got dell optiplex 755 desktop computer in the power supply unit at the back there is a small button and a green light what are these for??


It help diagnose problems with your computer

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow:- the power is operating fine but your computer not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPU or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light: power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode

I have a dell dimension 2400. My starts up fine


Most likely a motherboard issue.

Also ensure the CPU Heatsink is firmly attached. If the heatsink is loose, replace the plastic heatsink retainer

If it is secure, then the motherboard is the most likely failure point

XBOX 360 wireless guitar doesnt connect to system & dont know why


Power on your Xbox console and allow it to load to the Xbox dashboard.

Press the green Xbox controller on the guitar. All four lights surrounding the button should start flashing.

Press the connect button on your Xbox console (It's next to the Memory Card #2 slot).

Press the wireless button on the "Guitar Hero 3" guitar (Look for the on the bottom of the guitar).

Wait for the four lights to stop flashing, with one light becoming a solid green. Your air guitar should now be connected remotely to the Xbox.

XBOX360 No Audio, No VIdeo, Solid Green Light


the G.P.U has more than likely detached from the main board.
the x clamp mod is more of a diagnostic procedures than an
actual repair function. The G.P.U will need to be re-flowed to
the main board then lightly but firmly clamp to the board
then stress tested (force it to run hot for 15 min shut off and
repeat 3 times)

that's it

Not the power supply!


Hi

To help troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights lites solid green. The power button also lites solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the diagnostic lights as well as the power button helps identifies the problem.

First, disconnect the power cord and remove all connections (Keyboard, Network, Mouse etc) as well as optional PCI Cards. Connect up the power cord (Monitor as well) and try powering the PC.
Check the diagnostic lights/system lights color and sequence and check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)

System Lights - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1114432

Reply with lights color and sequence as well as any beep codes and I will respond at best effort.
