SOURCE: my Dell Dimension 5150 PC is not starting up

It sounds like your system is hibernating or asleep instead of powering up. Consult the power management section of your manual here. You can also use the troubleshooting section of the Dell online support site to help find a solution to this problem. It could be the button is sticking in the bezel, or there could be some other fault with the switch or the power supply.
See a link to the support page for your system here. and follow the prompts for more details about this error.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Remove the RAM and start, see if it beeps and/or shows something on the screen. Try with the external screen too.

Try turning off the laptop, unplugging it, pulling out the battery and holding power down for 30-60 seconds. After that's done, put the battery back in, plug it back in, and turn it on.

I have an acer aspire M5641 and when it boots it does not display anything or no startup "beep" whats wrong?


Silence is bad, if it doesn't boot!
It could be anything from a bad power supply to missing parts! Get it simplified to something that can boot, see that it does, then add a thing, and see if it still boots.

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all


Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!
