  1. Best answer
    Does the computer POST? Do you hear the POST beep?

    At what point in the boot process does the computer shut off? There are codes (LED) that you will see on the front panel. These codes will explain what went wrong. These codes will be found in your manual. If you do not have a manual, download one at "support.dell.com" bu entering the Service Tag number.
