Question about Computers & Internet
Following Rajesh Raman's advice somewhat...I did what I knew how to do. I removed the two memory sticks and restarted the computer. It gave off some beeps. I have four memory slots, so I moved them to the other two and it worked. Thank you. You just saved me a lot of money.

First remove your power supply to the hard disk CD drive and also remove the ide cable or sata cable remove all the add on cards connect your front panel speaker in modern mother board buzzer is printed on the motherboard remove your memory and restart the system if you hear speaker or buzzer beeping clean the memory with an eraser and soft cloth do not he scratch the memory with any metals insert your memory in the first slot near to your processor the restart your computer if you hear one short beep and still you have no display use a add on graphics card to check and if the display is OK the problem is in the graphics section of your motherboard or the add on graphics card still you hear the long beep as you removed the memory and still have the long beep change your memory card if you dont hear any beeps remove your processor fan and the processor clean the surface with a clean cloth apply a thin layer of heat sink solvent and fix the processor int o its socket and fix the processor fan tightly to the processor if still you dont hear beeps try to change your processor with your friend that fixes the socket

To troubleshoot the display, you need to disassemble the system, means you have to open up the cabinet and check the components and connections inside the box. I hope you will be able to open up the box so that you will get the view of the inner portion.
First, you need to disconnect or uninstall everything from the motherboard except the Processor with HeatSink Fan and the Power Connector(s). Unplug the Front Panel connectors (the connectors which come out from the front part of the cabinet, connected to the motherboard). You need to be careful with the main Panel, i.e. the power switch, reset switch, hddled, power led. Before you unplug them, note down the connection sequence if you might forget it. Also take note of the power switch pins, you'll need to short it after a while. Unplug the HDD data and power cables, Cd/Dvd Drive's cables, and everything else. Remove the ram, remove the bios battery.
(don't remove/disconnect the system speaker)
Now, connect the power cord and the monitor on the back, power on the monitor (I would recommend you to connect the monitor via VGA), take a screw driver and short the power switch pin on the motherboard (I've mentioned this to you to take note). Look at the cpu fan and on the monitor, at least the system speaker should beep this time with the beep codes indicating that there's no Ram/Memory installed. (If nothing happens, then there's problem with the motherboard, could be the video card or could be the bios or something else) If so, then turn off and install one Ram. Again power up and check the status, if there's nothing wrong with the Ram, Motherboard, Bios or video Card, then you must see the Bios' System info screen (black screen with white texts after the Dell Logo flashes). If it doesn't seem anything happen, then try with the other/another ram. (If it fails, then there's problem on the motherboard, you better get another than repairing it.)
If it boots up with the Bios System info screen, then turn off and connect the front panel and other panels, like usb or audio etc.. Again power On the machine from the Power switch (this time On/Off switch), verify what happens. if it's ok, turn off and reconnect the hdd and the dvd drive and so on.... untill everything is reconnected and reinstalled or you'll stuck somewhere during the steps when the faulty component is installed.
Let me know the outcome, sorry, this is too long.....but I don't want you to get confused.
Please don't forget to mention the motherboard model and make with the system configuration, otherwise, it's not that easy to troubleshoot..
Till then good luck.

make sure this hard drive is getting power
Test or replace your PSU power supply unit
one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps?
