Dell optiplex gx520 flashing yellow light on motherboard


According to the information you gave it seems it can still be the RAM. I've had a few PC's unable to startup due to bad memory.

Either that or the the front panel conectors are wrongly connected. Sometimes they do have a color code, but it's best to reference the manual. Can be the button . . .

If this is no help, I'd like to know more.

My GX520 was shut down as usual last night...I turned on this morning and I get nothing...just a little yellow/amber light blinking where it is normally green....help


Here is the info straight from Dell. looks like you have an internal power issue. You will most likely need to contact Dell directly for assistance, they are pretty good about giving support even if the system is no longer covered under warranty.

If the power light is blinking amber -
The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Connect optilex gx520 with plasma tv http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/desktops/optix_gx520/pd.aspx?refid=optix_gx520&cs=22&s=dfh


What kind of plasma? If the plasma tv has a VGA input you can buy this:

If it has DVI or S-Video, the GX520 will need a video card that supports those technologies.

When i turn power on my dell gx520 just blinks yellow and nothing else, nothing else at all


Hi,
If the power button light is blinking yellow . Generally it means the problem is with the power supply and needs to be replaced . If after replacing the power supply the problem is not solved it would be the motherboard failure.

If the power light is blinking amber -
The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

My PC doesn't power on i changed PS but nothing happened Plz help


It seems the problem lies in the SMPS. Before replacing yr SMPS, try to chck the power supply socket with a tester. If the power supply is ok, then the problem is with yr SMPS, pls replace it.

GX520 screen display message: cannot display this video mode


This means that the windows setting you have set can not display on your current monitor. There are two ways to fix this, one is to boot the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 after the POST screen and change the resolution and the other is to plug the computer into a different monitor to see if supports that resolution and then change the resolution in windows to a lower setting.

In case you don't know how to change the resolution in windows, follow below.

Right click on the desktop
Properties
Settings at the top
Move the slider to 1024x768
Click ok

Try rebooting. If that still doesn't work, try another resolution.
