Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer

1 Answer

My Dell inspiron 560 will turn on but won't go past the BIOS screen. The BIOS screen flickers and the computer won't register the keyboard so I can't even get into the setup menu. Have I fried my motherboard!?

If you can't enter to set up then yes you do have systemboard issue.

Bios unlock


You have to do a password reset to unlock all (advanced) BIOS features. See the service manual (link below) page 33 + 34 how to do this. Take a good look at the picture, memorize the procedure, shutdown PC, unplug from mains, remove cover, find the PSWD jumper, move jumper from 2-3 to 1-2, wait 1/2 minute ( or less), reinstall the jumper to 2-3, ......... restart and hit F2 to enter BIOS SETUP ....... link to service manual:

It is often caused by a hardware failure. The first thing to do is make sure you do not have any USB memory stick type devices plugged in. Computers don't like them plugged in while starting. If still no good, unplug all of the devices attached except for the monitor. By this I mean the keyboard, mouse, ANY USB DEVICES/ but leave the monitor plugged in. Try starting again. If it boots into windows normally, press the power button on the computer to make it shut down again, then plug each thing in one by one and repeat to see which is holding it up. If it still won't get past the BIOS screen, you have an internal problem in the computer box itself. Hope this helps

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


if there is no netework adapter in device manager or any device that is not instaled try checking in BIOS if it is enabled. sometimes after power loss bios is reset. if it is enabled in BIOS that short power outage probably killed your network adapter. you can add some PCI network adapter and solve your problem.

Got an interesting issue. I've got a dell inspiron 531 with a dell ry206 motherboard. Bad news is, when I boot up the pc, the power turns on, the fans turn on, but that's it!, only CD ROM and cpu fans...


Hello
Open up the case,after unpluging pc.

Remove memory sticks one at a time.After you removed one try pc again.

If it boots up normally then you know that memory stick is bad.Also check your keyboard by unpluging and pluging back in while booting up.

More then likley this is bad memory.

Screen on Dell Inspiron 6000 turned sideways. How


Power off the laptop.
Power it on and tap F2 at the Dell logo. check if the screen is sidways in the BIOS or not. If it looks normal in the BIOS restart the computer and go to control panel and uninstall the Video drivers. Restart the computer. It will boot up with basic drivers. Install the video drivers and the issue should be fixed.
If the display is side ways even in the BIOS try a BIOS update from support.dell.com and if you dont have an update reflash the BIOS with teh version availbale on the website.
