Having problems with your Dell Dimension E310 PC Desktop ?

My dell dimension e310 will not power up at all

\015 Is there reseat on this pc if so where is it a friend gave it to me it was working fine took it off a year a go\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with mine. It turned out to be a hardware issue. It can also be your power supply. I went to Dell & did the complete troubleshooting they offered. I found out it was my motherboard, not the powersupply.
If by "reseat" you mean "reset," I'm not clear whether the problem is hardware or software.
\015\012If the machine won't turn on, check that the power cords to the computer and monitor and the video cable between the two are all firmly connected at both ends. See if there's a power switch on the back of the computer near where the power cord connect - if so, make sure it's on. Press the power button on the front of the machine, and write back to let us know what happens.
\015\012If the machine works fine but you're trying to restore it to factory-default settings, enter your service tag number on Dell's support Website and search for directions there.
