Aux power led light is amber on dimension E521


I think your problem is your memory or video card.

Below are some steps that I recommend.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the computer and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Maybe your power supply is bad. Sometimes there is enough power to make the power light or some other lights come on but not enough power to make the fan turn on or hard drive spin.


Below are links and info I found from Dell's Website based on your model.

Controls and Lights Front of computer:

Power button - push button

Power light
green light - Blinking green in sleep state; solid green for power-on state.
amber light - Blinking amber indicates a problem with the power supply inside the computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light, this indicates a problem with the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).

Diagnostic lights
four lights on the front panel (see Diagnostic Lights.)

Standby power light
AUX_PWR_LED on the system board

Hard-drive activity light
green light - When the computer is reading data from or writing data to the hard drive.

Computer will not load. I push the power button and it just runs.


Here are some things to check
  1. Power LED (It should be solid green) if flashing or solid Amber, then a power supply or motherboard problem.
  2. On the back, near the PS2 Ports, are 4 diagnostic LEDs marked ABCD. When running normally they are all green. During boot they flash on and off during each sequence of the POST, if they stop at t code AAGG for example is bad RAM
  3. If the Power and Diag LEDs are normal, then reseat the video card if an AGP card is installed or remove it an try the integrated video.

Dell OptiPlex GX270 mini tower won't boot


Reinstall (remove and reinstall) your USB devices.

Could be memory error. Remove and reinstall your memory modules one at a time.

If not, could be your motherboard.

Hope this helps.

Dell gx270 power switch


I don't think you need a new switch. The power "switch" on the front of computers today is a momentary action push button switch. Not a locking or clicking switch as older computers used to have.

Many of today's computers, including the gx270 / gx280 computers from Dell are really always on. You can see the green or yellow LEDs on the motherboards glow when they are "off" (like a sleep mode).

They are in a "sleep" mode until you push the power switch, which sends a momentary signal off to the motherboard to fully power up and turn itself "on".

I think you have something else happening here. When the system tries to power itself up, and detects a severe problem, it will try to automatically turn itself off.

The problem could be a bad motherboard, power supply, memory or processor. It could even be a failed hard disk that is drawing too much power (shorting out) from the supply.

If you had done something to the system, like move it or open it up for an upgrade, etc.. Look again at all the internal connections, and make sure there is nothing rattling around inside that might also be causing a short.

You could try removing all the PCI cards in the system, removing the power and data cable connections from all the disks (Floppy, Hard Disk, CD/DVD) and see if the bare motherboard (with CPU and memory) will boot by it self. If it does boot, then the problem was somewhere in those items and you can replace them one at a time until you find the problem, or if it all works again then it may have been a loose or bad connection.

If you have another machine available, you could try switching the power supplies and seeing if that is the problem.

Good luck!

Not the power supply!


Hi

To help troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights lites solid green. The power button also lites solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the diagnostic lights as well as the power button helps identifies the problem.

First, disconnect the power cord and remove all connections (Keyboard, Network, Mouse etc) as well as optional PCI Cards. Connect up the power cord (Monitor as well) and try powering the PC.
Check the diagnostic lights/system lights color and sequence and check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
Diagnostic Lights - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147
System Lights - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1114432

Reply with lights color and sequence as well as any beep codes and I will respond at best effort.

This solution sounded to strange to be real but I was desperate for a solution to the orange light blinking 7 times and getting NO response from the printer whatsoever. It actually worked!
  1. Turn off printer
  2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
  3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
  4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
  5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
  6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
  7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
  8. Your printer should respond as normal.
