Won't turn on.

Hello, I was working on my machine, when it just shut down, I could not move my mouse, and just a box was on my monitor saying something about power being shut down, so I turned it off, and now it will not turn back on. I took off the back and checked and cleaned it out, wow, what a mess, anyway, I hooked it all back and still nothing, I have been having trouble with the big fan coming on a lot before this happened, when I ran my card games, or whenever a program would start up. It had happened earlier in the day with my granddaughter, and I just shut it off and it came right back on, but that night, I was playing a mean game of pinucile when it was just gone. Can you tell me what happened? Please.

    I did all that and still nothing, I was on the computer when it shut down, however earlier that day it did the same thing so I shut it off and it came right back on, but the big fans were running all the time. Then I was playing a game and it shut down again, this time I can not get it to turn back on. I have cleaned it out, (boy was it a mess.) I checked all the fans and they are turning free, I pushed all the wires to make sure they were all connected. etc.. I am thinking it is a power supply problem, or could it be my Help

This sounds like the CPU is overheating. Have you opened up the box and cleaned it out with canned air (or a vacuum in reverse to blow air works as well)?

Inspiron 530 desktop--- computer boots up, runs just fine for a while, then monitor displays gabled multi-colored patterns, then evetually shuts down.


What is shutting down, the monitor or the computer. Check the power light on each for proper diagnosis. You either have a bad monitor, a bad video display card or a bad PC, specifically a power supply or motherboard. This is a classic symptom of something getting too hot and shutting down. One way to test the monitor is to plug it into something else for an a period of time and test. If you're PC is shutting off, try unplugging unnecessary peripherals, i.e. CD/DVD drives, floppy drives, external USB peripherals, etc. Start with just the video adapter, keyboard, mouse and monitor. Let us know what is shutting off, for further diagnosis.

Hello, Hi, I've just got myself a brandnew Dell desktop with windows 7 32 bit on it. Everything seemed to work fine, but my computer enters Power saving mode at completely random times while im actually...


The simplest thing to do, as it is a desktop computer, is go to the control panel, power options and set everything to never so the computer never goes into standby mode.
If this does not prevent the machine going into standby mode then we need to perform further troubleshooting.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

Monitor in sleep mode


This problem could be caused by windows or the monitor .You need to hook up your monitor to another computer and see if you get the same response. If you do check and see in the owners manual if there is a control for power management.Find the control and try to adjust it, or turn it off. If all this does not work than you need to take the monitor in for servicing. If the monitor works,you may have a problem with the computer bios or windows itself. Check all power management controls in the bios and window settings and see if you can find the problem.Check the Microsoft website for this problem with your operating system and a solution. Hope this helps.

Monitor and mouse shut off.....


Call Dell for support. Looks like something in motherboard detects something (like temperature) then shut down your system.
Probably only need cleaning up inside.
