20 Most Recent Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer Questions & Answers

I'm downloading the PDF file of the motherboard's manual. Just want to make sure that we connect the wires to where they are supposed to be, although it's okay to plug them in and go back to it if we plugged it wrong. I just want to make sure though, that the solution I offer is the right and accurate one. Just give me two minutes here. I'll post the complete schematic of this lead lights.

'Autoplay' is Microsofts gift to hackers that looks for an 'autorun.inf' file on a USB stick or root of any connected drive (including network maps). So look for a file "E:\autorun.inf" and see what unwanted cr*p Winows is trying to execute (if you are lucky, it's just some failed 'auto-update' ... if not it's a virus/rootkit trying to take over your PC)

Do you get a screen if you boot from the CD/DVD drive using the Windows installation CD/DVD disc. If not, you probably dis-lodged a cable or plug when installing the drive.

which operating system you are using?

Microsoft have now dropped support for Windows XP, some users will no longer be able to login if they only have Service Pack 2, this is down to security upgrades that are not supported with this service pack. In order to correct the problem you need to install Service Pack 3, as you can no longer do this through Windows/Microsoft Update you need to download it directly to your computer, use the link below to get SP3. http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=24

What type of error? Wrong password?

Do you allow it to 'Repair' the Windows Install? - If not try that - if still having a boot failure - then you will need an OE Windows disk to fix Windows.

This could be caused by a few problems. First, look at the date and time on your computer to ensure that they are set correctly. If not, then set them properly. The reason for this is that many websites such as facebook actually use https (the "s" means secure) rather than http to help protect their users. If the clock is off on the computer, then that invalidates the security certificate and disallows the ability to login securely and successfully. Second, if that does not help, try clearing any saved password and cookies for facebook so as to force re-entry of your login credentials in case something got hosed. At the same time, clear your Internet cache as there could be something afoul with it as well. Third, check any software firewall you are running to insure that facebook has not been blocked. How one checks blocked websites varies from one firewall application to another, so I cannot give you any specific directions as to how to investigate this possibility. Just make sure that if facebook is listed, you set it to Allow (or something similar) rather than Block. These are the most likely issues but there could also be problems with viruses, some sort of restriction or misconfiguration of your router (some routers have the ability to block certain domains from being accessed), or even an entry in the hosts file redirecting the common name of facebook.com back to an erroneous IP address such as the loopback address of If you do not get the issue resolved with these suggestions, get in touch with a local computer repair professional and I am sure that he will be able to fix it for you quickly.

You first need to check the screen is working, disconnect the VGA/DVI cable from the monitor, then turn it on do you get anything on screen at all? If that works reconnect the cable and turn it on, now boot the PC, do you see anything at all on the monitor? No then check the cable/swop with new one or check the graphics card. Yes but goes off after a few seconds, reboot and press the F8 key as soon as you hear the first beep, this should bring up a start menu, try safe mode, if that works load and windows it might be the graphics driver (has this been updated?) if yes try roll back to previous driver or you could even try system restore back to a date you know it all worked.

What brand of pc is this? Download a diagnostic program to test internal functions. Sounds like maybe a motherboard or power supply issue.

When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer.

It\'s NOT the fan. Check the power save settings on the computer ITSELF. Check your BIOS settings as well. Inspirons ALL do the same thing with waking up.

BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH they call it. could be you pc is dead, or some major part, Hard drive, motherboard, etc. could be a software issue ie Windows to a hit...which means changing hard drives or trying reformatting drive, reinstalling windows. to save your personal files on drive before formatting, you either take it to shop to dump it if possilbe, or try it yourself by taking it out, buying transfer case, and hook it up to another pc to dump files. its going to be alot of work. shop will charge from $75-180 average

Photoshop is not a free program. You may download a trial version from http://www.adobe.com/downloads/?promoid=JZEFS. If you want a free photo editing program, try Picasa or the GIMP.
