Hello, Last night I shut down my Dell E510 desktop - the proper way - by going to the start menu, shut down, turn power off. Then, today, I pressed the power button on the front of my tower and...


This sounds like a definite power issue. This means that the problem could range from being as simple as the power button itself not working/disconnected to the power supply being dead.

Things to try:

1. Have the side of your computer open and press the power button. Notice if any fans start to move or anything that happens.

2. Do you notice the Hard drive light flashing at all when turning on?

3. Has anyone else been using or been close in proximity to the computer that could have bumped it, causing something to come loose?

4. ONLY if you feel competent enough, check the cable connections inside the computer. Make sure to disconnect from the wall for 30 seconds and reconnect before touching any cables inside. Leaving the cable connected allows the computer case itself to act as a ground to prevent static shock.

Good luck!

Computer won't turn on after short in electrical circuit


Hi:
You might just need the power supply on your computer tower replaced. It is about $40, and not that hard to swap out. Most computer stores will test it for you for free too. If they test it and its good, then you might have further damage to your tower from the power problem, but the power supply would be the most likely problem

Green light blinking on back of my system unit but there is no power


I had this problem and i tried everything to make it work. Now all i do is put a hairdryer at the back whilst the computer is plugged in until the light stops flashing then switch on as normal. I also noticed that when the air is warm i do not have to use the hairdryer hopes this helps.

Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.
