I found a Dell 9100 at a local thrift store. Upon inspection the unit wont power up fully. The green LED light on MOBO lights up but nothing else. First thought was a bad power supply, so I installed another one, still nothing. The system doesnt beep, and no other lights come on. Wondering what could be next to troubleshoot.

Well if its a dell monitor also, it will say dell, and does not mean the computer is communicating with it, your manual is here ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_dimension_desktops/dimension-5000_Owner%27s%20Manual_en-us.pdf (copy and paste) what EXACTLY is the beeping code doing, the term continuous beeping tone could mean different things. You should have 4 small led lights on the rear that say A, B, C, and D that are diagnostic lights, what color are those?
Hi! for most dell machines if the power led is orange its an indication of a issue with the ram, try to reseat the ram first.if that doesnt work normally for dimension 4600, there are diagnostic lights that are located at the back panel of the machine, they are four bicolor lights(amber and green) You can determine the exact problem by checking these lights and you can interpret them by going to this website: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/adtshoot.htm#1112886
hope this helps...
Make sure physical cables are plugged in correctly from speaker to audio ports. Check audio driver if installed, if not you can download the driver from the dell website:support.dell.com.If driver is propely installed check sound/volume settings, make sure nothing is set to mute...Hope this helps...Cheers!!!
If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
Try, unplugging the power cable from the pc, and reinsert it, if this does not help try a differnt power outlet, if this dont help, open the computer, take the power Molex conector out of the mother board and try turning it on, if this dont help, take out the Memory modules and reseat them, if this dont work you may want to ring up dell support.
Hey mate... Now there could be a number of things wrong with your PC.. First thing is that on the back of the main tower there are 4 Lights that glow if the system is ok but in case of issues they glow in different patterns according to the potential problem... look out for those lights n refer em to this chart
Also in case of potential component failtures the system gives out beep codes in patterns (maybe the sounds u hear at startup)... Do a quick check
Now regardless we can perform a basic troubleshooting...now you seem to be tech savy enough so do one thing... remove all the chords from the system... then hold dowm the power button to discharge the flea power... now remove all the components one by one n reseat them immediately... this will reset the connections n then try n restart again... if the problem persists then post the 4 led code here n we'll go from there mate :-)
