Dell dimension 5150. wont start


Most times when you have flashing yellow light there is issue ether with cpu or motherboard. Just to be safe test the power supply and if ok then try to replace cpu and go from there. If power supply issue just replace it. Might be easier to take it to pc repair store. Good Luck

PC will not start-up after sudden crash


try unplugging the power cable, holding down the power button for 10 seconds, then plugging it back in and turning it back on. also, there should be a set of 4 lights on the back of the dell (A, B, C, and D) for diagnostic purposes. Check them and compare them to your model's light diagnostic look-up on Dell's website.

Amber light flashing on my dell 5100, green light on motherboard


The green light just means it is plugged in and getting power.Try pulling the plug, the green light will go out. If you can remove the battery out of the motherboard, "it looks like a quarter", leaveit out for a couple minutes and out it in 'The same way it was" make sure you "look" at it before removing it, it has a little release thatenables it to lock in, or pop out. plug it in and give it a start. It may just be the settings got corrupted, that little battery saves the start settings, once it starts, we can go into the bios if any settings need changing, I'll keep an eye on this post, good luck

Windows XP won't start


The amber light is the error light on a Dell. It can mean a few things. 1. RAM has went bad, not properly seated. 2. Video card has went bad or come unseated. 3. Power supply is not working properly; or 4. Motherboard has went bad. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
