Dell PC wont turn on anymore

qgant01[at]gmail.com

I've had this pc for about 5 years. Then recently some sort of error (not sure what error was. Said something about contacting Dell) appeared after it had been idle for a few hours. I tried rebooting as it wouldn't allow me to do anything or get on the pc. Anyone know what can I do to get this corrected or get all the info from the hard drive?

Thank you!

  1. I would disconnect the hardrive first and try getting the system to post. If it does, then you probably have a hardrive failure. You can find a new or used hardrive on craigslist. I recommend a retail boxed sealed unit. The retail box provides more protection during shipping so you are less likely to get a damaged drive. I buy from frys electronics, which sometimes beats newegg.
  2. Thank you so much for your advice. I will surely give it a try. Thanks again!
