Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer ?

Comp. powers on, shuts down three times then goes into powersave

\015 My Dell Inspiron 530 desktop: i turn on the power button and the computer powers up, then shuts off, then powers up, then shuts off and the third time it powers up, it stays on and the screen comes up. after about a week or so of this behavior on the third attempt that it powers up, it stays on but the screen goes into powersave mode and i cannot access the computer.\015

Answers :

I had a similar problem...I'd turn on my Inspiron 530 and it would power up and shut down by itself several times and then finally finish booting up but nothing would show on the screen.

Turns out, it was a bad video card. Since there are two ports for hooking up a monitor -- I ended up hooking up the monitor through the VGA and completely removed the video card (just used the built-in device on the motherboard). This solved the problem and it booted up straightaway.

Dell is sending the replacement video card and I will just use the built-in until it arrives.

I hope this helps with your problem!

You may want to check the power supply fan whether it works properly or not. Also, you may need to check your BIOS setup if you had done anything with it.
