Disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer and re connect it. Check the wall power socket for current in it. Check the power on switch. Check the power supply unit (SMPS). It could have gone. Does the fan of SMPS work. If no, then the SMPS may be at fault.

Dell 4400 Main power in house went off while using my computer and then went back on about an hour later. Now when I try and restart the PC, the power button light turns yellow like it is in sleep mode...


The power supply or mother board probably went out. Did any other items in the house stop working? This happened to me years ago and the electric company reimbursed me for damages.
You can try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes, then retry listen for any beeps from the computer. If it is powering on but nothing on the screen and no beeps *********** board is probably toast.

Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.


the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.

try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

good luck

Dell Dimension 5150 starts up on its own!!


Check the power cable for some defect. It may have been twisted and the wires inside broken. Try using an alternate power cable and see how it goes.
