    A friend of mine gave me a laptop... he said if I could fix it I could have it. The only thing I can get it to do is flash the battery light when it's plugged into the charger, and it will power on for about 3 seconds, then shut back off... nothing comes on the screen, and only the fan and drives can be heard. Can somebody give me a starting point?

Dell 5100 will not turn on


Power "Outages" are not the problem, it is when it comes back on again,and the Power Switch is still ON, that's the problem, the "Inrush" current of reconnection, frequently "Blows" the Power Supply's, I suspect that is what has happened.. You probably need to replace your power Supply, simply open unit up, and remove PSU, via four screws at rear, and get a similar unit, they are relatively inexpensive, under $60.00 usually. Reinstall PSU and connect up all power plugs and you should be good to go.

Computer will not turn on at all. Dell Dimension 5100 desktop


I would unplug the power supply from the motherboard, wait a little while and then plug it back in.
Try to power everything back up and it should come up.

I am assuming you are getting a light on the motherboard that indicates power is being supplied?

Dell Dimension 5100 Won't start up


Hi

First disconnecting the power cord and re-seat all connections (Keyboard, Mouse espercially). Connect up the power cord and try powering the PC.

To help you troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the lights identify the problem.

If the computer failed to start up check the diagnostic lights color and sequence and Check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147

Alternatively, contact Dell Support with the diagnostic lights color and sequence to raise a service call if the system if under warranty.
