Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer won't stop

I was on my computer, and had been for a while, when suddenly the screen went black and the computer was making very strange, loud noises. The computer then went into sleep mode and would not come back. So I turned the computer off and tried the next day, but the computer was STILL in sleep mode. Any help?

Hi ashbadash93,

I have had similiar issues in the past. Try powering it down by un-plugging it from the back of the pc, wait at least 2 minutes before plugging it back in. After 2 minutes, plug it back in and power on the pc. Sometimes this helps.

The set has developed a short either in the power supply or the horizontal/high voltage circuit. The power supply makes a weird noise when it gets overloaded. This can get complicated so have a repair shop check it out for you. Thanks

Cannot Dispaly This Video Mode


1. If you have an Nvidia or ATI graphics card your video card is bad.
2. If you have integrated graphics (the video port is part of the motherboard), your RAM is bad.
3. Your computer is packed full of dust because you've never cleaned the GD thing and it's fking overheating.

245BW monitor not working (stranges colors ad aeternam...)


I had the same problems as almost all of these people and the answer seems to be that I uninstall the current Nvidia Drivers and use a previous set. The 169.28 were a real problem for me. Just when I thought it was working I would get the strange wash out and I could not turn it off except with the back power switch, aslo using the DVI turns off all the on screen controls.

Good Luck

Loud and strange noises


The built-in speaker amp or the volume switch may be going bad on you. A quick test is to disconnect the speaker set and replace it with a headphone or another working speaker set. If it behaves normally then the problem is in your original speakers, if not then you may have software driver issues or less likely an issue with the sound card. Let us know what you find out.
