If you cannot get into BIOS or boot menu, there's definately a system board issue. as far as i can interprete my findings on the internet i would say the PS2 controller is broken.

you may want to try with other memory modules, but i'm quite sure it's the system board

Dell error code 2000-0151 incorrect status 28


That error indicates an "incorrect status" of your optical drive. I suggest you run the Dell diagnostics on your drive. To test your CD/DVD drive from the utility partition:
1. Reboot your system. When you see the Dell logo, hit F12 to enter the boot menu.
2. Select Boot to utility partition.
3. Select Test System.
4. Select Custom Test.
5. Use the arrow keys or mouse to select your CD/DVD drive.
6. Insert a CD or DVD.
7. Click Run Tests.
8. Write down any error messages.

Optiplex 780 computer USB and VGA problem


Hi Tigistunet
are there any bleeps on startup? try checking that the card in in securely, remove and replace should be sufficient, if no joy then I think that your graphics card is most likely at fault, this will stop the pc from booting and prevent the mouse and keyboard from being powered up. Unfortunately it could be almost anything but I would start with the graphics card. Hope this helps.

OPTIPLEX 960 error codes 3 and 4 at startup. Solid amber light.


"optiplex 960 error codes 3 & 4 at startup"

Found out by myself the google suggestion to look up the Dell Diagnostics page:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/Op745/en/UG_en/trouble.htm
Lights 3 & 4 means "Memory modules are detected, but a memory failure has occurred." Bingo! I didn't actually replace memory sticks, but pulled them out and put back in one by one. Only three out of four sticks were accepted. Works.

Check that batteries are charged and installed properly.--make sure driver disc is installed if applicable- check instructions as some wireless suites need you to push a small connect button to initialise them . Also try shifting the usb conector into another USB port if it is notm getting reconised.

Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.
