Having problems with your Dell Vostro 200 PC Desktop ?

The machine boots fine but no output work;ie: Display,Sound and USB all don't work


Answers :

Ok, just a little more investigation. Your computer passes the post test? Is your screen blank completely? If not are you able to get though to the windows desktop? If you can, from here do the following to access what's known as device manager. This gives you the state of all the devices in your system including usb, video, sound etc. Click on the start menu, then click on run and then type in the following: devmgmt.msc This will open up device manager and give you a list of all the devices installed on your system. Any devices showing a problem should have either a yellow question mark next to them or a red cross. I'm thinking that you may see this next to your video, sound and usb devices in the list. If this is the case then there's obviously a problem with the device drivers for these devices. If you can access this list then you can click on each device in the list and open up its properties. There's something called roll back device driver. This can return your device driver to its previous state when it was working.

\015\012The other thing I'm thinking is, if you can't get to the desktop at all then you obviously have a boot problem and your windows boot files could be corrupted. You would then need the recover disk or worst case scenario, you would need to reinstall windows. If you are able to get through to the desktop and your computer suddenly powers down then this could be heat related. I'm not going to give you too much information. The thing about computer problems is, they need to be investigated stage by stage. Andrew
