Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dimension 5100. There was a big thunderstorm about a week ago and our power was out for maybe 4 hours. Now, the computer will not turn on. It, along with the monitor, printer, router, etc. are plugged into a power strip. Everything else seems to be working just fine, but we cannot get the computer to turn on. I've held down the power button for about 30 seconds with no results. No lights or beeps at all. Can you help?

You mostlikely blew a fuse in your power supply, either that or your cord became damaged, to check the cord, plug it into another computer or a monitor, 99% use the same type of cable, if it is your power supply, you need to remove the ps from the desktop, obviously while unplugged and undo the screws for the ps casing, then simply remove the old fuse and replace it

After start button is pushed several low buzzes is heard


Better check that power supply & where it plugs in at out. Also,make sure all the connections are plugged in tight inside. Never assume that a replaced part is good & if you went after-market for the power supply, don't go super cheap. Buy a good one with a good warranty & the same if not more juice than the original.

Dimension 5100 turns off whilst playing games.


Most probable cause is your computer has been compromised. In other words, somebody may have hacked into your system, and loaded bug onto your system. The fact that it only happens when you are playing world of warcraft, most likely that software has been compromised.

Remove any software connected to that game, check your computer for viruses, and then reinstall it

Dell Dimension 5100 Won't start up


Hi

First disconnecting the power cord and re-seat all connections (Keyboard, Mouse espercially). Connect up the power cord and try powering the PC.

To help you troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the lights identify the problem.

If the computer failed to start up check the diagnostic lights color and sequence and Check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147

Alternatively, contact Dell Support with the diagnostic lights color and sequence to raise a service call if the system if under warranty.
