Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop ?

Dell Dimension E521 would freeze halfway thru loading the BIOS

\015 Long story shortened. I had installed a new bigger, better monitor. The monitor also had USB ports. I fed these new USB ports with a cable from my desktop computer. I used these new ports for my mouse, scanner and GPS. I unplugged the cable from my desktop to the monitor and plugged my mouse and scanner into my desktop. That solved the problem for me. No more freezing during starting for better than a week. Ross\015
