    I change battery but that did work. Then I unplug all power cables and took the motherbord out from the case and reinstall everything. Now it is working fine. I wonder what was problem? Is it motherbord?

    I'm having the same problem with the same model.
    changed the CMOS battery nothing,
    check all wires they are still good,
    power from the power supply is reaching the motherboard hence the LED light is strong green.
    bios is up to date.
    only thing is I didn't do is change the power supply and jump the CLR CMOS pins because I don't know how.

One thing worth trying is taking out the cmos battery (only do this if you are confident you know what you are doing on a motherboard). leave the battery out for at least a couple of minutes and then reinstall the battery (ideally with a new one). restart and you may find you have cured the problem and that your old memory was fine. If this doesn't appear to help (definitely replace the battery even if you think it is fairly new)and jump the CLR CMOS pins. (ask again if you need help on this). second to try is see if you can update the bios drivers from the dell site onto a disk on another machine - use as a boot disk and see what you get. after that i would suspect the power pack, there is no real way to test this without connecting it to another motherboard and seeing if it is fine. alternative would be to just replace it with an equivalent unit, they are not too costly. After this i would suspect major motherboard or bios damage, which may be fixable but is usually cheaper to replace the whole board if you have inserted the wrong type(frequency/size/combination) of memory sets into the board it can often cause this sort of trouble, and often a CMOS clr and reset can solve the problem Please let me know if you need talking through the process - (it is not too complicated, but you can cause damage if you do not know what you are doing) Hope this helps :)

    Sounds like either the CMOS was confused and needed resetting or you had a bad connection between the motherboard and your graphics card - also possible is a bad contact on one of the power connectors.

    Glad it solved it

How do I fix a dimension E510 with a solid amber power light?


A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. 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.

I have a Dell Dimension E510 and it makes different tone beeps during and after startup. The computer works ok, but the beeps are disruptive. Seems like there are many more beeps during processing steps,...


When you first switch on your computer it checks certain things to make sure everything is OK and sends out multiple Beeps if there is a problem this is call POST. If you are getting multiple beeps then there is a problem, depending what BIOS CHIP you have and how many beeps you are getting should indicate what is at fault. If windiws is starting ok then it will be a minor problem, the first thing I would check if i was you is the memory. If you have more the one stick of memory installed and one is faulty windows will still start but with the beeping error. Start the computer and goto the control panel and click on System and check what memory that is showing and compare with what should be installed. If its the same then the fault is somewhere else and you will have to give more infomation like what is the system bios and how many beeps.
Good luck.

Ok what you might try is get a new hard drive and install windows on there and see what happens. Also if you are able to before you try a new hard drive you should do a system restore and restore it back to the day that windows was installed.

Dell E510 desktop


Hi Asif,
Did you install there something new on it? Maybe could help to push the F8 key after POST (just after the DELL logo disappeared and before Windows logo would appear) and choose to start with last configuration which worked. If this doesn't help then after F8 choose to start in Safe Mode and uninstall the failing application after you log into Windows.
