Old post but not too old, i doing them back 6months to catchup.
tower? what is tower?
you bought a used PC, ?
or is it really like this on the tag
i5680-7813BLU???? 5000 series, for sure, but see those other letter there?
5000 is like saying FORD, many fords made with that 5000 partial name.
5000 laptops year 2000.
5000 laptops new, with size prefix, 15-5000 up
old 5000 series desktops and new ones. all with unique full model numbers not stated.
or 5000 dimension, or Inspiron Desktops
the former is 13 year s old.
In my town i and go to the store,buy a old DELL , new DELL or a REFURB dell. all the same day, and land an up to 15 year old PC.
----------------------------------wild guess----------------------------------
Pull the power cord off wall jack
push power button for 15 seconds.
power cord back in , power on button,
does it boot to windows? if windows, login screen.
The book for the PC shows how to exit sleep (standby)
and exit hibernated modes, did you read the manual first?
the 2nd PDFs here is most Germain. read page 130, now.

if you want better answers, post the service tag data
this data tells any tech, whats in the box. (when new day1)
PC COME ON VASTLY different loaded options new,
all do.... and we cant guess any of that. eva.

my best guess is this.
this PC? a full sized desktop, from year. 2015-18 new.?

my dell 5000 will only come onto standby - 5000dt-dicd5gy5vfl450omivhtojsh-1-0.jpg standby plugged in, it is, but not turned on,
sleep mode
hibernate mode
hybrid mode.

this PC has 4 states and 0ff the 5th if unplugged from the wall AC.

the orange LED? is actually called amber,(no arg)
it has 2 states, that color. sold and blinking page 130
sold amber is boot fail. 5v standby power ok, but will not turn on.
blinking amber means (complex answer RTM)
"Boot Failure: The computer is receiving electrical power, and power supplied by
the power supply is normal.
A device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly
Refer to the table below for Amber Blinking Pattern diagnostics
suggestion and possible failure."

we call those blink codes.
if this is not you PC , consider the above as a show and tell
guessed the real model.number
and went to , opened the manual and read page 130.
you can do the same at any time.
best is download the manual for you PC and keep it.
so its not lost.(years later)

SOURCE: stand by button flashes but receiver wont turn on

I have vsx-d812 that has an AMP ERR in error menu. the troubleshooting was found to be Q696 and Q697 in the DC prot. area on "C" board, up near front toward diplay in center of c board. You can get access to error codes on VSX pioneer unit by pressing "enter" and "adv. surr." simultaneously for 2 sec. The display should show what error code you are experiencing. I believe there are three diff. error codes. 1) AMP ERR 2) OVERLOAD 3) BOAD ERR (not mistyped) I hope this helps pinpoint error code for ya.

There could be a hardware problem on the computer if the power button led light is "Orange/ or amber", if you can open the computer, try removing one memory card at a time and see if the power button will change.

SOURCE: dell 2400 desktop was working

first, recover your files. download asoftech data recovery software

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

Is it worth upgrading to a Dimension 5000 (taking the existing HD and RAM from the 280 into the 5000), if that's all I can afford? Is there an official benchmark bar chart between the two?


Hi....The Dimension 5000 is definitely an older machine, but depending on what you plan to use it for and assuming everything still works ok, the PC can still be useful. You can still get parts for the machine, especially if you go to Ebay.

For everyday computing like word processing or spreadsheets, it should still work ok, but will be slower than a newer machine.

Dell dimension 5000 won't start

I hate to say this but it sounds like your hard drive has crashed. I would purchase another for about 80 dollars and reinstall windows.

2nd headphone jack on dell inspiron 1420 will not work

The Solutions that will mostly work :

1) Go to sleep mode - wake up ! - tada !! the headphone jack will work again .. I know it sounds crazy.. i have the same model and had the same problem.. usually restarting solves any problem, but this time even a restart did not worked while putting the laptop on standby(sleep) mode and waking it up worked !!

2) If the above does not work, uninstall the sound drivers from device manager - restart the computer - then let windows detect appropriate drivers by itself. Sometimes the Sigmatel drivers(which are provided by dell) do not work as well as windows vista's HD sound drivers. May solve the issue... Do not worry doing this, in the worst scenario you can always download and reinstall the dell drivers from dell support page.

Please update on if the problem gets solved..
