Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer ?

Computer locking at startup

\015 I have a dell inspiron 530 desktop which has started locking up as soon as you turn it on. After pressing the power button, it beeps, the Dell screen comes up, and that's it. It is frozen on the Dell screen. The motherboard in this unit is the Foxconn G33M02, and there is a single LED on it glowing which is amber. I suspect the motherboard is gacked, but I'm not a technician, so I thought I'd run it by the experts first.\015\012Thanks for your time,\015\012Sean\015

Answers :

If the LED is glowing Amber then there is definitely something wrong with the hardware. Open up the system and check to make sure that all cables are plugged into the motherboard securely. If they are, you have faulty hardware somewhere. I would take it into a repair shop and see if they can locate the fault.
Please rate,
Thanks!

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
