Dell Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

that is a good question, but, lacks 3 key facts.
no PC model stated.
no Monitor model stated. my guess, built in speakers you mean?
no OS stated,
strike three you are out?, OK ill try....
strike 4, what are you playing the word play means nothing really.
play DVD, movie, windows sounds, play MP3 music file, or MP4 local movie, or MKV or pay sounds online, see how PLAY expands? complexity abounds.
I will now answer in pure generic form.
1: windows sounds dead, in CP +sounds _+ sounds. + test.
2: test one, plug in $1 dollar store ear buds to the desktop green 3.5mm phone plug jack or if a laptop (gee) the one with imbossed earphone symbol 3.5mm round jack.
4: in windows sounds, press test.
make sure play back tab here is on speakers, not else where.
got sound now, if yes, then the PC is ok as is sounds.
turn up the sound in the desktop icon try speaker (click it)

so at the monitor see that sound cable there,
with 3.5mm round ended plug,,
so plug that where the earbuds were above, and now the monitor makes sounds. but wait,
the monitor must be on, and the volume turned up
that monitor is really 3 things.
a monitor
and audio power amp
and 2 speakers,
the monitor has volume control,. IT MUST and must be turned up up, as you can see there are 2 serial volume controls;
set the PC end to mid volume and the monitor control as you like.

The Web Application you are using is written using Progress Software's WebSpeed product. The error 6019 is a generic error saying that the part of the application residing on the web server (the messenger) is having trouble communicating with the part of the application residing elsewhere. There should be a clarifying error message below the 6019 error that gives more information to the application developer. As a user you won't be able to solve the problem, it's something the application developer or at very least the webmaster of the website you're using needs to be informed about.

Hi , Nvidia usually includes a controls applet for user configuration , if you have installed the Dell spec Nvidia graphics driver there should be a control applet that includes colour etc controls
According to my information ,this computer uses the Nvidia GeForce 610M graphics device

Look at the task bar icon ( click on the drop-up triangle icon) or go via control panel > display > advanced

Dell Computers &... | Answered on Nov 15, 2018

there are 2 cards in side
usually PSU and one DATA.
one is bad.
there is no schematic so....(google for one yet?)
some schematics do leak out of china,,, I have one for my laptops.
but why are you trying to fix it, a nice refurb is $40
that works.
why invest in 18" old tiny monitors?
parts, labor, time. etc?
this monitor ran for 17 long years, most have dead CCLF lamps now, why fix it then find the lamps are dead, as more are now.

It seems you have a problem with your Processor regulator that is why your computer sending an amber message.
This problem always happens to Dell Optiplex mostly and there is no solution for this except replacing your Motherboard.
To verify this problem unplug yellow (2 yellow and 2 black cables) cables near the processor and then try to turn it on when you see the fan processor can run smoothly and the power light getting green that is the sign that your processor regulator having some sort of problem.

Hope this will answer your problem

old post 2017, 1 year old. Desktop and very old monitor.
This old monitor is CCFL and those fail super easy now.
built in 2005, backlamps are mostly dead now.
VGA cable? or DVI#1 or 2 port connected
the monotor told you PC went to sleep mode
I believe it. I bet the monitor works on any other PC you try, I bet.
so put the PC VISTA in into presentation mode.
(like we do with presentations, or kiosk mode, or using a nice DLP projector in theater)
just one app does this below
or learn to use
control panel, + Power settings, and advanced.
turn off all sleep modes,all hibernate modes.
turn on all wake-on modes, for sure USB ports.
make sure device manager is not showing dead devices (chips) if it is , that means get the missing drivers from Dell, for VISTA. Dell has them on your support page
and we are not DELL.,0301-28162.html

OptiPlex 380 this is not just ONE PC. 8 years old it is.
I think your PSU is blown out at he surge if the fans both are dead
the PSU blew out, in most cases.
we can test the PSU easy, with 1 jumper
just 1 paper clip unbent. in a U shape, cost 1/10th of 1 cent.
the most cheap tool on earth, I guess.

380 means nothing much , the parts inside these 3 are NOT the same, ok, always post cast type.
maxi, mini and SFF small form factor.)
or post the full service tag minus serial number S/N:
380-trio-ghkeo4bafk53mxj0f3civzgt-4-0.png the PC on the left we can get nicer PSU.
from Thermaltake ( I earn zero saying that) ok?

this is called cloning
it is not hard and the software is free to do that.
you can google that, its EVERY where this topic,
like saying how to buy shoes,
here is one free one.
The problem child is laptops that do not have 2 HDD bays
are harder to do. (where do you plug in new drive to do the clone.
in my LT I have DVD bay and DVD caddy that allows 2 HDD or 2 SSD, or mix.
one other way is USB to SSD cable SATA adapter. (sold on ebay)
then pick a cloner.

Hi , an oldie but goodie ...
seems fault might be with your computer graphics device if input from other devices work ok - presuming you have toggled to the correct input via the far right Display input selector button and the appropriate signal cable is connected correctly at both ends

Maybe start with ensuring one graphics output only is connected from the computer to the display and the correct input selected on the display via the far left (?) control button
( If you have the nous also help for peace of mind if BIOS setup video control is configured for the correct default video device - particularly if using a graphics/video expansion card - cmos battery might be bad and BIOS has unattended reset to default - I presume your computer is of the same release date
era )

Got to start first investigating the basic errors - user ver1 or system

what account, CC? then all CC and have it cancelled.
or did you read Phishing email and believed what you saw there, DO NOT DO THAT, OK ,
what savvy internet users do is call them. first. on a phone.
call the seller on the phone ( you said my account without saying whos account, (URL) what?)
if was hacked,
that is because you used weak PW.
why ask fixya we are not DELL, at all.

use free.
the click generate secure PW, like this.
if you did you'd not be here not, with towel.
