Hi mikeandcora,

for this situation, i would like to give you different option.:

option 1: remove the memory module on your pc then put it back
again. Ensure that you back it in right position. If this won't
work, try option 2.

option 2: remove and attach again the battery of your bios, this will
reset your pc.

thanks.!

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

Compaq CQ4010F Desktop PC won't turn on after a power surge


You probably and lets hope so, have an Electro Static Charge Buildup on your desktop. Remove the Power Cord and Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 Seconds plug the Power Cord back in the hit the Power Button. If it boots then you had an Static Charge Buildup. If it does not boot and you say it happened after a power surge then either your Power Supply or Motherboard is possibly damaged. Do you hear fans, hear the disk drive running, see lights, hear the CD Rom click once and see the light on the CD Rom drive com on briefly after you hit the Power Button. If so it would seem that your power supply is ok.

For either one left-click on Computer Cover, in the list.

Note*
1) Power unplugged from computer
2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside the computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Wont boot up.which button should i press to reset factory settings on powering up?inspiron 530


Factory settings are normally achieved by pressing the F8 on boot up, and choosing the option for "Repair My Computer". If this doesn't work, then CTRL+F11 should take you directly into the recovery option.

THIS LINK FROM DELL should walk you through the process.

If i boot my inspiron the icons on the desktop do not show it is only the cursor that shows


Hi,
The screen may be showing the way it is due to the following reasons.
The user profile corrupt or there are system files may be missing
Try the following steps:
1. Remove the battery from the computer and disconnect the ac adapater.
2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds
3. reinsert the battery and connect the ac adapter
4. Power on and check again.

If the above steps do not work the next troubleshooting step:

1.At boot up press F8 and boot in safe mode.
2.Once windows shows up, Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Restore.
3.Here you must specify a date that is in bold numerals. It will reboot in a short while. And you will get a working computer
.

How do you do a cold boot on a dell desk top model Inspiron 530? The computer will not boot up


Hmmm....you press the power button on the front of the case. I am not sure what you need exactly. If the computer has had a different power supply installed there could also be a power switch on the back of the case.

If everything is plugged in correctly and you don't hear fans or hard drive sounds, you most likely need a new power supply.

Dell Inspiron 530s/531s desktop, Win. Xp home...Windows stops responding at the ''Loading Personal Settings'' cannot boot in safe mode.


try to boot in "Last good known configuration settings" by restarting your pc and then press F8 before windows appear and then select the boot option i mention above. if this not work since you said that it can't boot to safe mode, your other option is to repair the windows or else reformat it. when you repair the windows you must have windows xp home edition cd installer, you load it to your cd/dvd rom and then restart your pc and press F2 or DEL button before windows appear in order to go to setup bios settings. in bios settings, you choose boot order setup and setup first priority to cd/dvd and press F10 by saving the changes and then press any key when you see the prompt so that it can boot up to windows xp home cd installer and then follow screen instruction that you arrive to windows repair option.
