HELP! This is similar problem to one in a separate thread but my computer is brand new out of the box today Dell Dimension E520. I've tried running it on two different VGA monitors with the same result: neither monitor comes out of stand by mode. The monitors don't display any BIOS. The computer starts up but there is no image or nothing, just a flashing stand by light on the monitor. Any suggestions? Dell Tech Support is shut weekends so no help there!
only a small surge. The CMOS Batter needs to be removed and clear the CMOS. TAKE OUT THE POWER CORD from rear of machine if you do this yourself. I have seen this this week on another dell where a static charge had upset the motherboard BIOS.
With machine being so new I would call dell technical as pulling the CMOS Batt will invalidate the warranty.
