Hi jgeorge76,

I'm sorry to tell you this, but the yellow light means that there is an internal power problem. Usually this problem is a worn-out power supply (the unit at the back of the computer near the top that the power cord plugs into), and it would explain why the computer won't turn on.

If your computer is still under warranty, I suggest you seek help from Dell. If not, don't worry -- a power supply is relatively inexpensive (around $30-40) and not too difficult to replace. You can easily purchase one online and install it yourself. Rest assured that your hard drive and all its contents are safe and intact; you just need to replace the power source.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

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

Dell 8200 Dimension shuts down on bootup. Making


The clinking sound could well be your drive heads snapping back into parking location if your power supply is going out. Since the 8200 comes with a pretty weak power supply those tend to go out shortly after you've upgraded to a better graphics card or added another drive to the system. I've replaced mine a few times and now have a 450 watt supply in it which seems to be able to handle a powered video card and the 2nd HD, 2nd dvd without running out of juice.
Another good thing for these old dimensions is the addition of a case /slot fan to help with cooling a bit more. (see included picture)
I've had dealings with a number of dimensions from this era not cooling enough and the slot fans really helped stability.5a04930.gif
Let me know if any of this helps your situation.

Replaced 128mb with 512mb in Dell Dimension 4400. Plugged everything back in & turned on. Or at least think it is turned on; there is a green light for both the power button and hard drive lights. ...


If you have replaced the memory on a computer and it does not turn on normally that means that either the memory is defective or it is not compatible. Do you hear beeps when you turn on the computer?

No display and wont boot


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. Power supply is easier and cheaper to replace.
