SOURCE: Yellow blinking power button

A customer of mine has several of these that have the same problem. I found a comment on a Dell forum indicating that one of the capacitors on the mainboard will be either swollen or leaking. Replace the capacitor and it should be OK. I do not have the proper equipment for soldering on a mainboard so I have not done this. However, I did a google search on "Dell SX280 mainboard purchase" and I found a guy on ebay selling the repaired boards for $100.

SOURCE: won't turn on only blinking yellow light

Another problem with the Dimension 4700's are some of the capacitors. There are a few that cause problems and prevent the machine from powering on. Check the single large brown capacitor next to the black heatsink. If you see the top bulged or stuff leaking out, there's your problem. The other two that tend to blow are in the bank of capacitors right next to the CPU. Look for the two tallest ones and check for bulged caps or leakage. Replacing them is really not a difficult fix as the Caps are readily available and it isn't hard to solder them in. Alternatively, you can hit an electronics shop and see if there's someone who can charge a nominal fee to replace them.
I've repaired two 4700's with similar problems this way.
Best of luck!

SOURCE: I have a dell dimension desktop. It won't turn

open the tower//
check for any loose connection of the cord of Hard drive and power unit//
better option is take out the wires one-by-one and refix it//
if this does not work then probably the SMPS has gone bad and needs to be replaced..SMPS is the power unit which supplies power to all the component.
during all this process please alwaws make sure that when you put ur hand in the tower then the power cord should be out , otherwise you can get power shock.

I have a Dell Dimension E521. When I cut the power on everything comes on including the monitor, but the monitor will stay black. It does say something about power save hit any button but the screen


A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data.

This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.


((A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly.
This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.))


A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.

You should consider visiting Dell Support and downloading the manual for your

your Dell computer. So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them.

hope this helps

When i turn power on my dell gx520 just blinks yellow and nothing else, nothing else at all


Hi,
If the power button light is blinking yellow . Generally it means the problem is with the power supply and needs to be replaced . If after replacing the power supply the problem is not solved it would be the motherboard failure.

If the power light is blinking amber -
The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Dell XPS400 No Start!!


If you fan isn't turning like it should, it is definitely a power supply issue. Go out and purchase a power supply with 250-300 watts...thats a good standard wattage!!

Computer will not turn on


  • Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up.
    Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
    If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced.
    If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed.

Have a yellow amber light blinking


A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
