Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
PC seems to power on but the screen never illuminates. I know the monitor is good. Its as if the unit is in screen saver mode. Next to the usb ports on the front panel are illuminated numbers 1 3 4. Also it seems as if no usb ports are providing power. The mouse does not illuminate any more.
Any help would be much appriciated.
You have a serious problem. probably the board as a result of lightning or electrical surge.
unplug and open box. look carefully for small burn spots any where on board and cards.
dis connect power supply from board.
diconnect your hard drive from power supply and board.
reconnect everything and plug in and try again.
sometimes it will reset itself and start up again if nothing serious.
