Press power button amber light flash for about 2 minutes green light come on boot up then shut down hit the button again it boots up


The blinking Amber light most often indicates a problem with the power supply. In rare occasions it can also be an issue with the motherboard as well. If you PC is still under warranty call Dell as soon as possible to have this addressed.

If it is out of warranty, it depends on your experience and aptitude on working on PCs. It is possible to order a power supply and replace it yourself. Look at other vendors first before buying one from Dell as you can often get one for much less money. Replacing them is not too difficult, though you would be taking a gamble that it is not a motherboard is not bad (though odds are in your favor).

Good luck,

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Steady amber Power light


You are looking at a new mother board. I would take it to a certified technician shop, so they can run a stress test on the motherboard for final benidiction.

The flashing amber is an error code. Dell Tech support will need to be called in order to troubleshoot as Dell does not publish it's codes. I know when my old E510 did this they started by replacing the psu, when this didn't correct the problem they sent me a new motherboard. Hope this helps.
