My Dell Inspiron 660 desktop Hangs at Dell Logo on restart. If I disconnect and reconnect the power cord it will proceed to startup. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

This is a classic sign of BAD CAPS.

It could be that issue or just the other failed motherboard or power supply. I'd inspect for BAD CAPS but tell a little more. Some folk install a more powerful graphics card and this will happen.

My name is Ashik and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.

For the issue that you that you are facing Try to drain flea power on the system and test. T\

- Remove the battery and then disconnect the AC adapter if connected.
- Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds then release it.
- Reinsert the battery and then reconnect the AC adapter.
- Turn on the computer.

If the issue still persists try reseating the system memory and check for functionality.

That's the recipe for a laptop, not for a laptop. I think AshikU didn't read your question well.
