Return it, the disk is defective. Do not try to fix it yourself - you can't and that will only void the warranty.

HELLO...MY HDD LED IS NOT BLINKING ON MY PC BUT WHEN I CONECTED TO MY FRIEND'S PC IT WORKED ......THE GREEN LIGHT IS WORKING PERFECTLY WHEN I CONNECT IT TO THE HDD LED POINT IT BLINKS BUT THE RED


Look for the LED pins on your motherboard. One should be labeled HDD+ and one HDD- make sure the cables are plugged into these pins. Doesn't really which color wire to the + or - If it is plugged in the LED on your case could be bad. To test this will need a multimeter. Unplug the HDD cables from the pins. Set the multimeter to measure resistance the horseshoe 1 or 10 Ohms is fine. Stick a probe in each connector if the probes dont fit stick a paper clip in each hold and touch the probe to the paper clips. Dont let the clips touch. If you get no reading then the LED probably burnt out. If the LED tests ok you can leave it unplugged and turn on the computer. Set the multimeter to 10 Volts. Touch the red probe to the HDD+ pin and the black probe to the HDD-. DO NOT TOUCH BOTH PINS WITH ONE PROBE OR YOU WILL SHORT IT. Be careful... If you don't get a reading then there is no voltage making it to the pins.

When pluged in the On/Standby LED will light. When pressing power the On/Standby LED with flash then go solid but nothing apears on the display. I can select what speakrs to use (A or B). All the LED's...


Most likely the unit does not receive power from main transformer. Possible several reasons:
- bad power transformer
- bad main internal fuse 7-8amp. Bad fuse most likely because of one of the channel is blown and shorts the power, so before installing new fuse good idea to check all channels by meter or at least visually for burned parts
- bad power relay
- bad connection, cracked soldering joints

Dear User,

Please refix the is display cable properly and check if the issues resolves.

Kindly check if any beep sound comes. To check is the system board is fine. Please press the Num Lock for 2-3 times and check if it responds(Led On/Off)
To check the monitor status, please remove the display cable which is coming from monitor and connected with System(Cpu), if it displays the message on screen then it passes the monitor test and indicates that Monitor is fine.

Please share the result.

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.
