I'm running a Dell Inspiron 660 with Windows 10 and have had no issues until I accidentally restarted during a driver update I thought had finished. So now, the CPU won't boot (no beeps, etc.) and my monitor immediately tells me it  "Detects no signal and is going into Power Save mode". Both the CPU and monitor power cables aren't an issue, nor do I have any problems with RAM. Simple fixes such as removing the battery, pressing power for 60 seconds, etc., have had no effect. The likelihood of rescuing all the graphic design work that's now trapped on my system seems far fetched, but any suggestions as to what I'd need to do to begin to resolve this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This is difficult.

I can only suggest getting factory recovery discs & reinstalling.

and going from there at this point.


In the future get Macrium Reflect (paid version) & making full system images to restore from using the boot time Reflect option.

Learn to take screenshots & add them to your posts. :thumbup2:


Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

Have you tried crossing the CMOS jumper for 10 seconds?  Do this with the computer unplugged and push the power button to drain any power that is left before shorting the jumpers with a paper clip. Touch the case before doing anything inside to get rid of static electricity. 

When you try to boot up, how many beeps to you hear?

If you have important files on the drive then I recommend that you remove it and connect to another computer via USB hard drive caddy and backup of the data.
