I just received my desktop Inspiron 3268 today. I have two monitors both  dell p2017h. 
I am unable to set up dual screen with these monitors. 
I have tried to connect a vga cable from the desktop to monitor 1, then use a dp cable to connect both monitors. 
Monitor 1 works fine, monitor 2 states : NO DP PORT CABLE, THIS DISPLAY WILL GO INTO POWER SAVE MODE IN 4 MINUTES. 
please help 
fyi i have also tried multiple cable swaps, restarting pc.


That is the only way to have dual monitors using the onboard video. As you know VGA is less than ideal. You can try to find a mid range low profile discrete video card with dual monitor support. It will be hard to find video cards for your small model desktop. You cannot fit or run big high powered cards in your model. You have a limited psu and very limited space in the tower. Make sure to measure and check power requirements.

I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

Answer:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

I'm trying to decide between purchasing the 2001 or the 2005 for gaming. Has anyone tried either?

Answer:Has anyone used Dell 2001 or 2005 20inch monitors for gaming?

Are those TFTs ? The larger TFTs are still not as fast as smaller ones such as 17" TFTs. 19 TFTs are borderline for gaming if you don't intend to spend more then $400 for a low response time TFT, but 20" & above are still way to slow to play FPS games for example.

If you play RTS games or games such as WoW, it won't be as evident, you might actualy not notice a thing but for fast paced games, it won't be acceptable (especialy considering the price these go for).

Hi all,
What's the best solution to get a decent dual monitor setup for our new Dell desktop?
We currently have two AOC monitors connected one via HDMI, one via VGA but the user is complaining that the VGA one is a bit blurry.
Do we just have to *** it up or would using a VGA->HDMI converter improve things?
How about adding a cheap video card with a Displayport port?
Or should i just be able to set the monitor up manually to best cope with the VGA input.
All thoughts welcome :)

Hello everyone,

Ok, so today I purchased a 22" external monitor for my laptop. I loved it SO much, that I decided that I would like to upgrade to two external monitors of the same size. However, this is problematic with only one DVI port.

I did a bit of research and found the following:
- A DVI splitter won't work (it will just replicate the signal on both pictures)
- There is an option to do so with a USB to DVI (approximately $30)

I was going to purchase a USB to DVI switch, then I had a thought:
-What if I purchased a USB to HDMI then converted the HDMI signal to DVI?

This would do two things: allow me to connect to my HDTV via HDMI and save me money (a USB to HDMI converter is only $10 on ebay: []DisplayPort to HDMI M/F Adapter with Audio (Non-USB) | eBay).

One of my biggest concerns is that I only have graphic card support for two monitors (somehow the USB to DVI can override this, but I'm not sure how the USB to HDMI works).

I would appreciate any and all input regarding this decision.

Will this system work or will it not work entirely?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Connecting Dual External Monitors via Dell Inspiron 1420

Going through 2 connectors is never a good idea. It may work, but sometimes your GFX gets confused.

I've seen the USB to DVI converter before. It's really nice. I'm not sure how it works, though.

Does your TV not have a DVI port?

The best idea is to get the USB to DVI and USB to DVI.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 laptop that is connected to 2 Dell monitors via a Targus docking station and VGA cables. However, when I close my laptop to sit under the monitors, it shuts down the computer and the screens go blank. Is there a setting that allows me to close the laptop while still working off the two monitors?

Answer:Closing Dell Inspiron 15 laptop when connected to monitors shuts down computer

Check your Power Settings for what happens when you close the lid. Usually the laptop sleeps, hibernates or shuts down when the lid is closed. No signal is sent to monitors when that happens.

Answer:Laptop (Win7 Dell Inspiron 1525) won't connect to desktop (XP Dell) wireless router

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

So I just got this laptop few days ago.

The basic specs:
7th Generation Intel Core i5-7300HQ Quad Core (6MB Cache, up to 3.5 GHz)
GeForce GTX 1050 4GB GDDR5
8GB 2400MHz DDR4
Windows 10 Home 64-bit English

The problem: It restarts randomly, no blue screen, no error messages. It just goes into the Restarting process, including the screen where it says "Restarting". Basically kicking me out while I was writing documents, editing images, nothing system intensive.

This is very troublesome since it's very unreliable.
It is not Windows Update because WU asks you beforehand and tells you after reboot that the system has been restarted,
I do not think it's the temperature because I have a monitoring software that says it's cool and a cooling pad as well. 

What I did (Note: I already turned off Automatic restart in System before those restarts happened) : 
Checked Event Viewer nothing special, checked Reliability History, nothing special. 
Did Dell BIOS(F12) comprehensive tests(3+ hours), Dell Assistant tests, memtest86, Prime95, Unengine Benchmark.Can't seem to replicate it.

I have a new dell inspiron 5559 which I bought two weeks ago I had a problem with the fan that was really loud for no reason and after doing that for a few days the laptop started to shut down when gaming due to overheating.
I sent it to the lab due to it being on warranty and they replaced the fan and the heatsink.
After I recived it I wanted to play the game I was playing last mounth - Foootball Manger 17 and it shut down again.
I ran a few tests and discovered that when the AMD GPU is on it's stating temp goes immediately with a straight line from 0C to 50C which is not normal I believe. It also shuts down while I performed A GPU stress test.
All my drivers are the latest so I figure the problem could be with the thermo detector or the thermal paste they applied in the lab.

Hi everyone!
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop, and today I noticed, that my laptop makes very quiet ticking sound when it is plugged in. This is strange, because the sound very similar to a HDD's head movement ticking. The only problem that there's no winchester in this laptop, only SSD-s (1 X M.2 NVMe PCI-E x4, and 1 X SATA3 2,5") working in my laptop. In this series there's no optical drive, so the only mechanical units in this laptop the 2 cooling fans. But strangely the ticking is exactly can be heard, when the fans stop. So when the fans don't spin (0 rpm) the quiet ticking sound can be heard.
The second strange thing, if I unplug the laptop from AC, the ticking slows down. After i plug in it again, the ticking continues faster...
Do somebody sensed the same? The ticking comes from under the keyboard, if I lean forward, I can hear it well. I think, that this ticking might caused by one electical unit, and I worry that my laptop will go wrong, although now there's no other problem, just the sound...

Recently bought a model 7567 and paired it with an external monitor via HDMI. All my drivers are up to date. Ever since pairing the both, every few minutes, the laptop and external monitor both freeze for about a minute, then both screens flicker and return to normal operation. 
This only happens when I use HDMI output. If I'm using the laptop alone, it works perfectly. I should note that this only happens when browsing webpages or small tasks, and not when gaming. I have ran full system hardware diagnostics and found no problems.

I recently purchased the 3656 desktop with the AMD A10 8700P, Radeon R9 360, 8GB (Single channel?) RAM.  Tried loading GTA V on it. Even at lowest graphics settings this game has major problems keeping up with the game.  Is there anything I can do to this PC to get the game playable? I understand this is most likely a processor issue from what I have read...
Obviously, I am very new to this, sorry if these are very bad questions. 
If I upgrade the RAM to 16GB with 2 separate 8GB cards will that 1) help and 2) be dual channel?
The RAM is DDR3L, which I guess runs at lower voltage.  
The processor says it is 1.8GZH but maxes out at 3.3 in turbo boost.  I set my PC to high performance and still had same issues on GTA V.  FPS were between 20-40. 
Am I SOL with this box? CPU cannot be replaced from what I read too.

So I just got this laptop few days ago.
The problem: It restarts randomly, no blue screen, no error messages. It just goes into the Restarting process, including the screen where it says "Restarting". Basically kicking me out while I was writing documents, editing images, nothing system intensive. I have played the Witcher 3 for hours and it was fine.  
This is very troublesome since it's very unreliable.

It is not Windows Update because WU asks you beforehand.and tells you after reboot that the system has been restarted,
I do not think it's the temperature because I have a monitoring software that says it's cool and a cooling pad as well. 

What I did: (Note: I already turned off Automatic restart in System before those restarts happened).:

My Delll Inspiron 7000 gaming laptop with GPU Nvidia 1050TI get heats up very fast when gaming.
Is it normal for the laptop to heat up that fast and until what temperature can this laptop operate without damaging its component?
Im connecting this laptop to a TV with 28 inch screen and set it to 1080p resolution with HDMI cable playing Dota 2. (Best looking resolution set on dota with 120 maximum FPS) (Size : 1920x1080 60Hz)
Im wondering will my laptop be ok if I continue to operate with such condition or should I reduce the resolution and FPS because the laptop is very hot and the fan is spinning fast and loud.
Any suggestion can my laptop support such game play and what temperature can this laptop operate without damaging it?

So a few days ago, I turn my less than 3 week old Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming on, and notice that there is now what appears to be fan noise coming from just the right side of the laptop. Prior to this, the fan would only kick on when the laptop hit a certain temperature, but now there is fan noise constantly. I'm worried this is the sign of worse to come. Uninstalling Windows updates, updating the BIOS, and reinstalling windows have done nothing to help. The only other piece of hardware on that side of the laptop is the hard drive.

i wanted to know is there room for a HDD since the 256GB SSD isnt enough for me because i see one screw at the back of the laptop and am tempted to open it but i want to know if there is room for a HDD before thanks
The HDD i had in mind was either a 1TB 5400 RPM HDD or 1TB 7200 RPM HDD if there is room for a HDD will it support 1TB 7200 RPM ?

Please help me answer these 3 questions

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop IS THERE ROOM FOR HDD ?

Open the base cover to see what's installed - it could be an M.2 SSD (card drive) in which case the system will take a 2.5" hard drive.
It could equally well be a 2.5" SSD - in which case the additional drive would need to be an M.2 SSD (the system has space for just one 2.5" drive).

Answer:Dell Inspiron Gaming i5577 Restarts Randomly

It is strange a system would restart like that.  Have you tried booting to something like an Ubuntu install and running it as a Live version.  If it were some component on the system it might happen there also.  If the problem originates in the original configuration, reimaging may put you in the exact same place.
Does the system require you to sign in after these restarts?
Does it happen on battery power as well as plugged in?
It should be leaving some type of footprint in the logs.  Keep track of the exact time it happens along with uptime of the system to see if you can find any standards.  In a situation like this, even the info entries of event viewer may hold some repeating entry or even entries at the time it happens.
You might try running the system in Safe Mode for a while to see if it happens there also.

The description for this computer states that the USB-C thunderbolt port is a ?on cord solution? for data transfer, video transfer, and power. Imagine my surprise when I docked it and got an error message that the port doesn?t accept power and to plug in my power adapter. I am hoping this is a temporary issue that will be fixed with a bios update and not an issue of false advertising and poor utilization of a fantastic technology. Can someone from Dell advise if this will be fixed in a future bios update or if it?s infact a hardware design flaw?

Answer:Power through USB-c on Dell Inspiron 15 7577 gaming laptop

Hopefully a Dell rep can confirm, but sadly, I think this is going to turn out to be incorrect marketing material and not a hardware bug that will be correctable with a BIOS update. There's no way something like that would still exist as a bug, but if the port isn't wired to allow charging the system, no BIOS update will fix that.Looking at the product page for this system (screenshot immediately below), the text block above the system images mentions "Power Delivery", which typically does mean the ability to charge the system over USB-C (since systems typically don't provide large amounts of power to attached devices via USB Power Delivery), but the description of the USB-C port below the system image doesn't mention accepting power.  Compare that to the image of the XPS 15 (farther below), where Power In is explicitly stated.  This is also found on other systems that can charge over USB-C.

Recently whenever i attempt to play a game on my laptop (Inspiron 15-7000 7559) it powers off, just like that, instantly (not rebooting). It depends on the game/settings how long it takes but usually around a few minutes and it powers off to black, without a blue screen or whatever notification.
First thing i did was testing different drivers for the gpu, with no result. 

So i started searching the internet ofcourse and i found everyone saying it's due to overheating. I have cleaned the laptop of dust, but there really wasn't that much. Then i reapplied thermal paste (arctic silver 5), it lowered temperatures a bit but not drastically (I have no warranty left so it's no problem opening it).
Temperatures of my cpu never go above 89 degrees C. gpu around 65 while gaming. Seems pretty normal to me.  
i also reinstalled the bios with the original dell driver, same with the gpu driver. still no result.
The event log wasn't really that helpfull because it never gave any reasons, only that the shutdown was unexpected.
I also used MiniToolBox and that gave me a few errors with more info, if necessary i can post those here as well. 
i also tried a full reinstallation of windows with no result.
so yeah i'm desperate by now.

p.s. Minecraft seems to run fine, even on all settings maxxed through the roof.

1. first month the laptop used to run on batter for about 5-6 hrs browsing internet and watching movies as well.. but now I hardly get 2 hours only browsing without any other tasks running in parallel..
2. The laptop heats a lot at the bottom even when I do browsing only
3. Right hinge make a kind of 'tick' sound while opening and closing.. and after I close completely, I have to press a bit at the right hinge to close completely.. (When I press it makes a small tick sound and is closed completely)
I'm worried to see so many issues within a year and that too for just 2 months.. The main problem is this laptop my aunt bought in United States but I live in India. So it is not easy to send the laptop to US for  such issues.. I hope I will get some support through this post..

Answer:Dell inspiron 7567 Gaming - Battery and Hinge problem.

You'll need to start by transferring the warranty to India -- however, this requires:
1.  Upgrading the warranty from depot repair to onsite service -- this will cost a couple of hundred dollars.
2.  That the model is sold in India -- if it's not, the warranty cannot transfer.
To transfer:
Then contact Dell India or US for repair.

Hello Everyone,
I purchased this laptop on thanksgiving deal last month. When I play music/video/audio with more than 50% of the volume level of the speakers, the speakers/sub-woopher are  giving crackling sound. it's terrible. 
I checked the Realtek for driver updates and it's already updated. I troubleshooted the audio for issues but it doesn't display any problems with speakers/audio. 
Any ideas please. 

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 i5577 Gaming Laptop Crackling Sound

Save yourself some time and frustration. Check and see if the speakers still crackle when not plugged in via ac power. If they sound fine when the ac adapter is not plugged  in, the problem could be the adapter. Out the box, my brand new dell sounded like garbage. I did everything, drivers, reset, etc...Finally, I just decided it wasn't a deal breaker, I would just use a bluetooth speaker. But I finally realized the only time the speaker sounded like garbage is when the ac adapter was plugged in. So I tried another one and they still sounded bad. I thought maybe I should increase the wattage so I got a 65W adapter and viola! I reset the system, plugged in the new adapter, changed the bios setting for power and it's been working like a charm. I hope that helps.

I recently (June 2017) bought a Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567computer with Windows 10 installed. I have created a backup image of the OS and also burned a bootable disk so that I can reinstall Windows 10 at a future date.
My old computer (which uses Windows 7) permits me to change the boot order sequence by using the F12 key during the startup process to access the BIOS and then edit the boot order sequence so that the machine boots from a DVD or USB drive. This makes it possible to restore a backup image from a previous date or even to use a different OS, e.g. Linux.
My problem is that the F12 key does not work on the new machine and I do not know how to create a boot order sequence that will permit me to boot from a DVD or USB drive instead of the hard drive. So at this point, I cannot use the bootable recovery disk that I prepared. I understand that there is now UEFI technology that controls booting.
Question: How can I make make the new computer boot from a DVD or USB drive?
Thanks in advance.

Answer:How To Change Boot Sequence in Win 10 on Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567

The new computer is faster than the old one so you have to try tapping F12 as soon as you turn the computer on to get to the boot menu. Keep tapping without waiting for any screen. You can also use the built in solution--which is useless if the computer won't boot so you need to know the tapping trick. Open Settings, Updates and Security, Recovery to see the options.

Hi all,
I recently purchased an Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop from Dell and have encountered a few issues.
Computer Specs:
OS: Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700HQ Kabylake
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB 
Memory: 8GB (1x) DDR4
Storage: 1TB Hybrid Drive
The rest can be found here
Upon first setup there were issues installing the NVIDIA drivers where the install would fail multiple times - eventually I got the driver to install. Then I had some issues with the graphics card enabling when I would play games so I just changed the setting in the NVIDIA control panel to always use the dedicated GPU. After playing some AAA titles such as GTA V and Arma III, I am experiencing what appears to be throttling. On low or ultra settings, my FPS remains around 45-50 (sometimes a little higher before stutter) on most games which surprised me because the dedicated GPU is a 1050 Ti which has higher specs than what the games need. After playing for maybe an hour, the game starts to frequently stutter, dropping frames for a couple seconds then boosting back and so on. I have monitored the temperature of both the GPU and CPU which reach ~56 degrees Celsius and ~70 degrees Celsius respectively. I have also monitored the usage of the CPU and memory during play, the CPU not reaching full usage and the memory reaching about 90% usage. I have also monitored the GPU performance through GPU-Z and will attach the file below. I have virtually tried everything that I can thi... Read more

Essentially, nothing.  A "mid-range" gaming notebook will have a GeForce 960m GPU or equivalent Radeon -- yours has only Intel integrated graphics and that cannot be upgraded.
If you need mid-range gaming capability, you need a new notebook -- look at the models that run at $1000 give or take $100.  That's where you'll find mid-range gaming.

Hello all, I've recently purchased this laptop (Just out of best buy direct return policy) and It has remained docked at my desk since.  

I used the keyboard briefly during setup, but otherwise have been using my mechanical - well the other day I decided to use it and the backspace key popped up. Saw that the clips on the key itself were broken on one side.

I don't want to have to wait without my computer in hopes that this may be covered by warranty repair if I send it in, but I cannot find this keyboard anywhere but Ebay.

I would purchase it from ebay but the only sellers are located in hong kong and it would take quite a while and not be an assured fit.

Any ideas? Part number, etc? Basically I would just buy a new keyboard and take the backspace key off of it. 

I saw that theres a website for laptop replacement keys, but this particular model isn't listed. Is this keyboard shared with other models, just with either no backlight or with white text instead of red? I would accept a different kind of key if its the right size.

Thanks, sorry for the wall of text. Just wanting to get my keyboard back to new :-(

I got a new dell gaming laptop less than 2 months ago. Yesterday I turned on my computer and noticed that even when the actual fans were making almost no noise, there was still a fairly loud and irritating sound coming from the right side of my computer. After listening to it to see where it was coming from, it seems like the source is the right bottom vent, but I'm not 100% sure. Also, I'm running windows 10 and just now updated the BIOS.

Only got my new Dell Inspiron this week.

Looked forward to playing among other games Battlefield 1. Unfortunately it does a driver check and the latest drivers on the Dell website are too old to run the game. Tried updating via the Geforce experience and by downloading manual drivers, but even though it identifies the card and current version in the experience when it tries and installs it says no compatible hardware found.
I love the laptop otherwise, but when you spend that much you expect to play the latest games.
There looks to be some complex fixes but would rather hope there is a simpler solution.

How do you install a network card for wireless in this type of computer. Right now I am using an external adapter but my computer keeps locking up. It is only a month old. It has windows 7. Help please it is 64 bit windows 7.
Thanks you

Answer:Dell Inspiron one desktop(all In One)


Not convinced you can as the Inspiron One Desktops, woudl need to know the exact model is it the Inspiron One 19 series? As are not like normal desktops with multiple PCI slots, they are more like a laptop, so off hand dont think you can add a PCI Network card, may get away with a PCMCIA or Wifi Half Mini card that a laptop or mini PC can take, would be likely to only support your WiFi USB dongle.

I have a Dell optiplex 960 desktop 3.0ghz and I wanted to know if I can play games like GTA 5 in this desktop with a good graphics card it is sff form it would be great if you could suggest a good graphics card for this desktop to play games like this in low settings without lag and I have 4 GB of RAM please reply soon thank you

Answer:Dell optiplex 960 desktop 3.ghz gaming

Minimum Video Card is Geforce 9800GT or Radeon 4870
You cannot use Either.
Minimum CPU is Core 2 Quad Q6600 you don't have that either.
So there is no way a Desktop meets the minimum requirements.
There are no upgrades to get you there.

In the past this was a breeze as the PSU had a spare molex connector and a cheap molex to SATA cable was all that was needed to get power to a second HDD.
Now with the new smaller inspirons, it is a different PSU, no molex and they have started using a 6 pin PCIE connector to supply power from the Motherboard to the SATA HDD.
There is a spare PCIE 6 pin block,
I could use a SATA splitter, but concerned that it might be pulling too much juice running 2 HDD at once.
Any idea where I can get a 6 pin PCIE to SATA power cable ?

I purchased the above computer a year and a half ago.  It cost $500.00 but I don't get a little window in the lower right corner of my desktop.  It is a windows 8.1 and seems to be running fine but when I try to install KB2919355 I get an error.  Obviously all I am doing is trying to qualify for windows 10.  Does anyone have any idea what the error is all about and why I can't qualify for a upgrade to win10.Thanks in advance.   - Missouri Tiger

Answer:Dell Inspiron 3847 DESKTOP

Be careful going to Windows 10, I got the upgrade downloaded and let it install and now it doesn't recognize my ethernet adapter so I have no internet connection at all and the computer is useless.  I have been searching for people with same issue and came across your thread and haven't seen anyone with my same issues yet.  I downloaded some updated drivers and hope they will work...

Hiya all,

Before I start, I'm really not good with computers, so plllease been simple with me

Okay so in February we got brought a new computer for our birthdays, the wireless wouldn't set up and so it took us about 4 hours on to dell tech people to solve this (grr). We then went on holiday for 2 weeks, when I came back and went to use the computer this error message keeps popping up.
WZCSLDR2.exe System error - The programe can't start because ANIOApi.dll is missing from your computer. Try re-installing the program to fix this problem.
This didn't bother me as I assumed it was something to do with the wireless being set up, however every now and then the computer just shuts down, it is completly random, sometimes the computer will have been on for 2 hours and then re-start, sometimes 10mins.

If theres any other information I can give you to help you, please let me know.

Thanks in advance everyone

Hey Folks, So I have this two years old Inspiron 620 and it has been working fine for the most part. Last night I accidentally unplugged its power cord while removing another cord from power outlet. And now the system wont switch on.
I am a little hardware aware so I opened it up and I can see the green light behind PSU and I can see there is a constant RED light on motherboard. If i remove the Power Cord both these lights remain on for a good 20 or so seconds and then they go off. I removed all the accessories from the mother board (Hard drive, DVD, Wireless card and stuff)  -- I then unplugged RAM and re-installed it, I also removed and plugged back the main motherboard power cable but no luck.
No matter how I try there is no activity on the PC - the CPU fan never rotates. Can someone help me identify what might be wrong with it. I will greatly appreciate it.

Answer:Dell Desktop Inspiron 620 won't switch on

You wrote: "disconnect the front panel USB panel's cable that is going into Mother board and yes that did the trick." It also worked for me !!
There are 3 black cables (each abt 1/4" in diameter) going from the small USB & audio front panel to the MB. Each cable was disconnected then the power was applied. The cables were reinstalled one at a time until all 3 were re-connected. Power on worked as advertised for each step. Hopefully this procedure will not have to be repeated each time it is turned on.
Since there is no logical connection between the USB and audio ports on the front panel with power on capability Dell should be ashamed that they haven't broadcast a workaround until the problem is finally fixed. Frustrated Dell customers are completely justified in refusing to buy future Dell Products. I just joined that group.
Thanx for posting the fix. If you ever discover a reason why this works plz post that too.

I have a Dell Inspiron ? 531 desktop with the O.S. of Windows 7. I have had this computer for about 5 years now and it has worked for me, but like most of us we learn from our mistakes. I have always been into computers and I have always liked to do the work myself on them, or in other words try to fix them. Before I knew exactly what I was doing I messed around with things I shouldn't have and now I am paying the price for it. I have gained a lot more knowledge as far as computers, but I still want to make sure that I am doing the proper steps in order to fix it, the right way. When I first got the computer I used to do simple Factory Restores every once in a while, but at 1 point I made the dumbest mistake and formatted one of my hard disk drives, which deleted the Restore Partition. Then, for a while I was manually restoring my computer with a Reinstallation DVD, in which I made the 2nd dumbest mistake by deleting one of my hard disk drives. Ever since, I made these dumb mistakes, my computer has have every complaint you could think of.

Usually when power button is pressed you can clearly hear it starting (almost sounds like a small engine and then a shot bip before the motherboard screen comes up. But now the bip never comes and the engine-like sound doesn't stop, it just keeps going and the computer never starts up. After a couple of seconds (much longer than normally) two short bips come. This is repeated until power off.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop PC that's 7.5 years old. It was working fine until today, when it wouldn't turn on at all. I kept pressing the power button and nothing happened at all - the computer just wouldn't turn on.

I tried a different power cord and that didn't work. I opened up the computer and I could see an orange light on the motherboard was lit, and a green light on the back of the power supply was lit too, so the computer is getting power.

I took off the front of the case and tried pressing on the power switch directly, and that didn't work. I tried pressing on where the power switch wire connects to the motherboard to make sure it was connected and that didn't help.

Any idea on what's wrong?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 530 desktop PC won't turn on at all

Most likely a failed pw supply however it can also be a failed pw switch/wiring or a failed mb. To test the pw supply, swap in a known good unit. Note known good does not mean new; it means a unit from a test system or a working system that you know works. A new pw supply can be DOA just like any other part and that will really mess up your troubleshooting.

To test the switch/wiring, pull the pw switch leads from the mb. Jump across the mb pins with a small screwdriver or other metal object. If the board starts, you know either the switch or wiring has failed.
