Inspiron 530 won't boot.
I shut down my Desktop (Inspiron 530) before leaving on a business trip. Upon my return the unit will not power up. The LED in the power switch on the front does not light up. There is a green LED on the back of the power supply that is lit. There is no led activity at the network cable. There is single...

Inspiron 537 - Will not turn on.
Every time I press the button on the front the green light in back goes out and I have to unplug and plug in to reset. Power supply checks out (I swapped with a good 537) and motherboard looks good with no visable damage to any capacitors or other components.

Inspiron 530 doesn't turn on...

Upgrade Desktop Inspiron 530 CPU

Re: Dell Inspiron 530 won't Turn On!
I checked the PSU and it turned on when I jumped it. So I disconected the RAM, PCI card, and other drives power and data cables... Still nothing. How do I know that its not a bad power button? I don't want to go buy a motherboard/ processor if I don't have to.

Inspiron 530 Won't Boot Up
My Inspiron 530 has been a very good computer to me so far. However, in the past whenever it has been lightly bumped it shuts off, the power cord couldn't ever be even lightly jiggled. I've had it since 2008 though, and I managed to keep it in a safe place where this rarely happened. However...

I heard that dell was thinking about using Google plus for support i think this is a great idea. The video chat feature would be like text support on steroids, making it a lot faster and easier to find a solution to your problem copy and paste this in a new forum if you think dell should use Google plus...
