Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

No response from Monitor, Mouse and Keyboard

Dell computer. I have no response from the monitor, mouse and keyboard. Switched them all to another computer and they operator. Could this be a dead motherboard or dead hard drive. Unable to switch out hard drive because of it being a different type of pin connection. I think it's the product that i had to chose from the product listing.

Definitely a "faulty" motherboard. If fans on PC do not turn, no lights come on and dead screen.

If lights come on, and fans turn, try to reset the BIOS by removing your CMOS (and setting the jumper to clear for about 5 minutes, then put the jumper to normal again) battery for 5 minutes.

Sometimes the bios just "stuffs" up and you'll get no response from your pc at all. So all you do is "CLEAR THE CMOS/BIOS"

Computer powers on but monitor, keyboard and mouse are not working


Once the monitor shows "no input", indeed the mouse and keyboard are pretty useless, even if the are working, as you cannot see they are working. If the monitor power light is on or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

Monitor in power save mode and will not restore a picture.


Check all your video cables and check your keyboard and mouse cables. If everything is ok, reboot computer.

I have HCL Ezeebee desktop computer when we boot the system monitor, keyboard, mouse blink for a while and monitor (HCL) show 'no signal' message, and keyboard num lock led not display mouse i


No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard.
you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged.
I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard

Blank screen with blinking cursor on Dell desktop


First step is to make sure that nothing is plugged into the computer except a power cord, keyboard, monitor, and mouse. If it still does it, even unplug the mouse, because a mouse going bad can easily cause what you describe. If it still does it, try a different keyboard.make absolutely sure that nothing else is plugged into the computer.

My monitor goes blank while watching a movie on netflex about every 8 min very annoying . I jiggle the mouse and the picture comes back . sound ok . Help


Your computer is just going to sleep from what it sounds like.

Just get into the monitor/power saving/screen saver settings and make it so the monitor has a longer relay to shut down when there is no mouse/keyboard movement.
