If you know the ram, that looks like a ruler with about 4 to 5 inches length you need to clean its contact point with pencil eraser. you can blow the dust with a blower. to verify the problem temporarily, remove the video card then use the on board vga. if this does not boot that means the problem now is your memory card push the lock on both end to release then clean as i've stated from the abve.

    since you have already done everything as you've said one reason now is that your power supply it shows that it lacks power although the fan is rotating, there are other voltage supplied by this, you can check the other voltages.

Won't power-up or boot after turn off. has to cool 8hrs. to work again.now it turns off a lot more


Take a can of air and blow off the fans. One inside the little metal box called a power supply inside the main case.
Also the cpu has a fan and heat sink on it that gets dust built inside and needs cleaning.
Warning, always unplug the power cord. Make sure you are touching something metal in the case while touching the inside of the PC. It can protect it from static shock.

Also never shake an air can. And don't spray while it's upside down. The liquid can seriously burn you.

How do I clean the dust out of my PC?


Turn the pc off and unplug all the wires and peripherals that are attached onto it.

The desktop chassis should have a side panel that comes off, that is screwed onto the body. once you get the panel off, you can use a can of compressed air to get rid of the dust and debris from the fan, air vents and the heatsink.

Here's a pretty neat tutorial with do's and the dont's, on how to go about cleaning your desktop. give it a read before trying it out.

My dell optiplex gx 620 system fan run so fast and produse a lot of noise when i play games or downloading data from net


Open up the computer and clean the dust out of the fan and processor heat sink. If it is a temperature-controlled variable speed fan, it will probably not have to work so hard to keep the processor cool.

If it is a fixed-speed fan, it may be getting loud because the bearings are wearing out. Gently try to rock the fan blade unit - it should not have any wobble or slop in the bearings, and it should rotate easily.

If necessary, clean as much dust as you can out of the power supply without taking it apart.

Do not use a regular vacuum cleaner to **** dust off the motherboard. The high-velocity airflow may generate electrostatic charges that can damage the board. It's probably OK to vacuum out the heat sink if you hold the fan still to keep the vacuum cleaner from over-speeding it.

I hit the power button and the light blinks once, the fans will start to spin, and then nothing, no power no boot, just a quick blip of power but no power up..


You need to remove the case top and look for a lot of Dust all over the inside, especially around the CPU making sure the cpu fan is still running. This can get expensive when maintenance procedures are not thought of until late. It's not you it's everyone. With the power cord out, maybe you have a vacuuum attachment to get in there and get rid of a lot of spider webs. Then take a slightly moistened rag and complete the job. I can't guarantee your CPU fan is still alive but when you get all cleaning utensils out of the way, put the power switch on and watch for the CPU fan to spin. If not- any lights? P.S. Fan?

Computer Beeps When Windows is Loading


First, you should be sure that the cooling fans are working properly. Especially the one that is on or directed to the processor. You'll need to open the system up to check this. Turn on the system and make sure all the fans are spinning fast. Now, check for lots of dust or dirt on the fans and processor heat sink. Most likely, the inside of your tower needs to be cleaned. If there is too much dust and dirt in the fans and on the processor heat sink, it can't cool itself and the system shuts down to prevent damage to the processsor once it gets to a certain tempature. I have seen this often. You will need to use a can of air on the fans and processor heat sink. There will be a lot of dust and dirt that will come flying up....which is good Then use a vacuum and a soft bristle attachment to get out the remaining dust. Put the system back together and you should be good.

Your manual should show you how to take the cover off your PC to access the motherboard.

I hope this helps you.

Fan/ engine whining sound


If the fan is only making wind noise it is ok. If it is making matalic noise replace fan. It would be a good idea to clean (blow)out the dust and dirt for the inside of the computer at this time.
