Having problems with your Dell Dimension E520 PC Desktop ?

Came back....turin it on....anything on the monitor

\015 You can hear 3 buzz as it tries to turn on but nothing...th power button stays green.....nothing more\015

Answers :

If the buzz you are talking about is three beeps then it could be a bad memory bank or VGA error. Try removing one or both memory banks an see if the same thing happens. If you get a screen image after that then try cleaning the memory contacts and re-installing. If the computer has a video card make sure the card is fully inserted. You could try removing the card,cleaning the contacts and re-installing. If you have another video card test with that one or if the computer had on-board video(another VGA port in back) try connecting to that one. The last thing you could try is resetting the CMOS on the board thru the jumper or removing the watch battery for about 10 seconds.
