Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

My computer won't boot up - I either get the screen saying start in safe mode, or a Dell screen with little squilly blue lines. When I got it to come up once, then my mouse wouldn't move!


Answers :

That sounds like the main board has a failure. Your best option is contact Dell for a replacement system board. If your computer is no longer new, you can just purchase another used dell for about 100 bucks (Tower only) at gearxs or 3btech.net, or on google shopping. Before going that route though, contact Dell and have them assist you in diagnosing the issue. A replacement board is about 100-200 bucks, and will fit like a glove.
