Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Dell Dimension will not log in, it immediately turns off the machine


Answers :

I would try and boot to the installation cd and see if you are able to fix your windows installation. If you cant fix it with that then you might be dealing with a dying hdd, though I doubt it.

Good luck and let me know if that worked or not.
If your machine turns off during the initial Dell screen or just doesn't bootup at all, most likely it's your power supply failing on you.
