I have a Dimension E520. We had an ice storm last week and ended up losing our electricity for about 40 hours. When it came back on my tower would not start up. I had previously installed a video card because, after another electrical problem, I lost my video. Then I was using the integrated video card on the mother board. You would think I would have installed a surge suppressor too but nope. Didn't. This was a year or so ago and bout a video card from Dell. All was working fine until this ice storm. So my first idea was that I hsd toasted my new video card. I had it tested at work and it functions fine. As I stated in the topic, the POST lights 1, 2, and 3 are lit after booting. According to the users manual this is a "Other Problem" and the possible causes cannot be checked as I have no video.
Anybody out there?
