I'm assuming you are using windows...

You need to close anything that has files open from the hard drive. Even having a Windows Explorer window or "My Computer" window open will cause the drive to be in use. Close these and you should be able to use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray.

Dell Dimension 2400 with steady amber power light and diagnostic lights of ABC green and D off. What could be the problem?


Steady amber power LED is indicative of a problem with the motherboard. Remove all external connections except power, remove all PCI Cards, ram, disconnect power from all drives, turn on see if power LED is still steady amber. If it is, more than likely the motherboard has a failure. Also check to see if the CPU heatsink is firmly seated (The plastic retainer has been known to fail causing the CPU to overheat)

Dell Dimension 4700 won't boot properly.


Disconnect the hard drive and the floppy drive cable at the mother board. The retry POST and try to clear up any problems in POST. If this works fine then the floppy drive cable is either reversed at the unit or the hard drive is jumpered wrong.

Windows XP won't start


The amber light is the error light on a Dell. It can mean a few things. 1. RAM has went bad, not properly seated. 2. Video card has went bad or come unseated. 3. Power supply is not working properly; or 4. Motherboard has went bad. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

I accidentally interupted the initial installation process on a new Dell Dimension 9200c desk top computer. Now I cannot get it to finish the installation. I keep getting an error message saying the...


If you have a spare computer or can get to someone that can help, remove your hard drive and install it as a "data" drive in another system. The other system can then remove the partial installation and start over. A last resort would be to reformat the drive. It might be possible to reformat it with a DOS (or Windows 95/98) boot floppy. Be very careful as DOS does not always work well with newer hard drives.

Pxe-e61 meida cable error


PXE-061 error also know as a "PIXEY" erroroccurs when the system cannot find a bootable device and attempts and FAILs to boot from the Network Adapter. Most newer computer network cards have the ability to boot to an operating system thru the network (A function generally only available over large domain networks).

In your case, the most likely senario is that the hard disk drive has failed.

If this is a portable system, remove and reseat the hard drive, then boot to the SYSTEM BIOS and see if the drive is detected.

If this is a desktop/tower system, open chassis, reseat the power and data cables to the hard drive, then see if the drive is seen in the BIOS.

Ensure the hard drive is the 1st in the boot sequence.

If the system still will not boot to the hard drive, time to replace the hard drive.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
