  1. I have a new Dell Dimension E510 With a Pentium 4 3 Ghz processor, and I was installing Intel desktop utilities, when the monitor shut off, the speaker gave a "khhhk", but the computer seemed to stay on. Now when it is turned on the power indictor light just stays orange and nothing seems to happen.
    Any ideas on the problem here?

    Nevermind, the unplug it and let it cool off method, seems to have worked, it just started up for some reason and seems to be fine. But thanks for the help, these forums are great.
