Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop ?

Will not restart, has been deadlocked in power safe. I pressed any key and moved the mouse. Nothing.

\015 My Dell will not come back on. When I push the plus button on the screen it says locked in power safe mode. Press any key or move mouse. It will not come back on. Thanks Jessica Vandenberg\015\[email protected]\015\012I called Dell, but failed to understand the tech support as he had a heavy accent and I am not able to understand him.\015

Sounds to me that Windows is setting your computers\015\012video controller to output a video signal whose timing is not\015\012compatible with your display. You may be able to boot Windows in safe\015\012mode and then be able to pick a compatible video timing ( refresh rate) in the display settings Windows control\015\012panel. Did your monitor come with any kind of setup disk?
If your monitor is a flat panel try the resolution refresh rate at 60MHz. Lower than a CRT.
