If you feel comfortable opening the computer. Take the Power Supply of the system board for about 5 minutes. Then reconnect it. I have an eMachine that did/does this after a storm. It has to do with internal capacitors nor discharging/charging correctly. You can replace the power supply and it will fix it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I have a dell dimension 2400 with a blinking amber light what do i do


Hi,
The blinking amber light on the dimesion 2400 generally means that the power supply on the system has gone bad. Switch off the system and disconnect the power cord from the back of the system . Press and hold down the power button in the front for 10 seconds.
Reconnect the cable back and try powering on the system.

If the same ,fails you would have to take the system in for repairs

Thanks for using Fixya

My dell dimension 2400 goes on standby automatically.


If the power LED on the Tower is blinking amber, then most likely the power supply in the tower is failing. Replace the power supply.

When i turn my computer on the power light and


Hello,

If your computer turns on and your monitor stays in stand by mode, then there is no communication between your video card and the monitor.
You could check if the cable is plugged in correctly or even faulty.

It is also possible that there is a problem with your video card. Maybe physically uninstalling and reinstalling it could solve it.

If none of this helps, then you might want to check a new video card.

Hope this helped.

Desktop screen won't stay on


how old is your screen, if its older than 2-3 years mostly its gone and you need to replace it. If its in warranty then contact dell customer support. Life of screen can be around 3 years after that i may not work.
Another test is to connect it to some other computer and see if its working, then we can focus on some output issue from the CPU.
