Well as you have already tried disconnecting the peripherals from your computer, and tried restarting the computer too which did not help you, it sounds to be an hardware issue with the monitor. However if incase you have not tried this, you can disconnect the monitor completely from the tower, power on the monitor, if it powers on and you get a message as no signal, your monitor is working good. If not replace the monitor. If the message appears on the monitor screen, disconnect everything from the tower, push and hold the power button on the tower for a minute. Connect just the monitor and check for any display. If you do get display, thats good, connect one device at a time and check to see if the display appears.

If theres no display with just the monitor connected, the issue would be with the graphics card. You may need to replace it or get the system repaired.

First of all, open your case with the power unplugged and check to make sure you plugged in every part of the motherboard to the power supply. Look for white plugs.

If that doesn't work, try this:

1. Go to this website and scroll down to Figure 5-2. http://support.ap.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe650/en/sm/jumpers.htm

2. While the computer is off and unplugged, use the picture as a reference and move the jumper on your motherboard to NVRAM_CLR.

3. Plug in your computer and boot it up. Wait at least 15 seconds then turn off the computer and unplug it.

4. Change the Jumper back to it's original position on the motherboard.

5. Plug in the computer and run the BIOS

Thanks, Rodrick

What you should try at this point is shut everything down, Unplug your desktop, hook it back up to tour moniter and boot. If you now get a picture, go to your device manger and click on display adaptors. If you have more than one selection. choose your monitor. Let me know if this works.

Try plugging in headphones into your computer. If they work then your audio circuit is working. You can also try running the diagnostics from the the Resource CD, It will have"Diagnostics and utilities" listed under the "Contents". You will have to bootfrom that CD disk. To do this, power on your computer and tap the keyto bring you to the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVDdrive and hit key. Selectthe "Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics". Select "Custom Tests" and run the audiotest. If the audio tests fail you might have a problem with your speakers. The easiest and sure fire way to determine if your speakers are the problem is to try another set of speakers.

Try to do a hard reset by unplugging the power supply and the monitor cables from the back of your pc and from your voltage regulator or UPS. Leave it for quite sometime like 15minutes then try to put everything back in, and then restart the computer if this would not work it can be a video card issue. try to remove your video card and use an eraser to erase the metal filament that touches the socket once you plug it in. It can be there so much dust in it so the connection is not that great. then try to dust off the eraser particles on your video card and then put it back in and reboot. If this would not work you can call Dell and have the unit replaced with a new one.

This machine was running a 1.2 processor which I now know is the fastest processor the mobo will support. However, and before I knew this, I placed a 1.53 processor (AX1800DMT3C) in the slot and the bios...


The original CPU was 1200 Mhz, namely 12 times the 100 Mhz "clocking" supplied by the motherboard.
The new CPU is 1.53 Mhz, namely 11.5 times a 133 Mhz clocking, if the motherboard can supply that rate of clocking.

If your motherboard can only supply 100 Mhz clocking,
then the new CPU would run at 1150 Mhz (namely its 11.5 multiplier over the 100 Mhz clocking), i.e., slower than the original CPU.

Can you try the 1.2 processor in some other motherboard?
It's possible that you "killed" it, when you removed it,
or after you removed it, by giving it a static-electricity burst.

Do you have another processor that you can try in your motherboard?

What happens if you put the 1.53 processor into the motherboard?
Does it POST (Power On Self Test) ?

Turns off after 1-2 mins like it got unpluged dell dimension 2350plus the clip to the heat exchange on top of the cpu broke


it's probably the cpu overheating because of the broken clip. You'll need to buy a new heatsink for the cpu (get some thermal paste at the same time). Take the old one off, clean the compound off the top of the cpu. Put a pea-size blob of thermal paste on the cpu and attach the new heatsink.
