When you try to start it, do you get any lamps or noise (from spinning fans) ? If not, then the power-supply inside the desktop may need to be replaced.

It would be best to take the computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting and repair.

My dell inspiron M5030 turns on showing the dell logo and then it turns off

I would remove the power supply, battery, hard drive and RAM. Power up the laptop with just the power adapter and enter bios. If it goes to bios OK, select the default setting. Press F10 and let it try to re boot.
Remove the power supply and fit the RAM. Insert the power supply and try to boot. You should have error message on screen. Remove the power and insert the hard drive. Connect the power supply and attempt to boot.
That sequence should show the issue at the point that there is no display that is where the issue is.

DELL latitude 100l, someone disabled all boot devices then set config / administrator password. Please help

Boot Priority on Dell Latitude 100L
  1. Turn On Your PC
    Have you ever noticed the messages that pop up on the screen as soon as you turn on your PC? These messages tell you a key combination you can press to enter "Setup" or the "BIOS." Watch your screen and see if you can read what keys to press.
  2. Press the Keys to Enter Setup Mode
    If you did not see a message telling you what keys to press, try tapping the following possibilities as you turn on the machine:
    • Esc
    • F2
    • F12
    • F10
    • F1
    After pressing Esc or other key, you will most likely see instructions telling you how to enter "Setup Mode". Follow those instructions.
    tip.gif On some computers, you must hold down the key before you press the power button to turn on the computer. For example, if you are converting a Toshiba laptop to a Linux Workstation, you must hold down the Esc key and then press the power button. The computer then asks you to press F1, and you can then set the "Boot Priority."
  3. Using the Arrow Keys, Choose the "Boot," "Boot Order," or "Boot Priority" Option
    The menu of choices you see will be different for different kinds of computers. Remember that the choice you want is the "Boot" order or "Boot Priority." On some computers, this is called the "Start Up Options" or "Start Up Sequences." You are going to change where the PC will look for boot information when it starts up. (CD-ROM, HARD DRIVE/HDD, LAN, FLOPPY, USB). If you wish to boot from your Hard drive, then select it as your First Priority.
  4. Using the instructions on the screen, save your settings and start up your PC. The PC must boot from the HDD. Regrds

Dell dimension wont boot after power outage and stops half way through the boot page


The problem is with the corrupted boot files .In my opinion you have one solution
Steps for solution

1. Download an operating system called ' Linux mint ' which can be installed in the pen drive having minimum 4 gb capacity . Using this operating system you can access the computer .

2. Copy the file and folders to an external storage device (external hard disk, pen drive etc..)

3. Reinstall the operating system ( XP,Vista ,Window 7,Ubuntu etc )

Hope you be successful

Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop screen does not light up

In Safe mode drivers, in your case the video one, aren't loaded. Uninstall the one that you have now. If it's the same then probably it's a hardware problem. To be sure boot from a Linux Live-CD like  and press the Escape key - this way you will see the boot-log in real time, look for error messages.
