    If youleave the video card and all but one strip of ram can you get it to post the BIOS? f not the BIOS is either bad or the mother board.

Disconnect from the network and all other accessories, and power up the system, this might be due to a faulty device attached to the system, eg: when you connect a usb faulty device the boot takes very long time, sometime it does not boot up.

SOURCE: Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on

Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dell Blinking Power Light

Just wanted to say Thank You for the info on this site. I had the same problem as previously posted. When powered up, the monitor showed a fast flash of the desktop and then went black, with the power indicator flashing green. I read the posts, purchased the capacitors and the 4 - 2sc5707 transistors through ebay. I ordered them on the 6th and rec'd them today. I only had one bad capacitor and one transistor that checked bad, but I ordered 5 caps and 4 transistors. When ordering the caps be careful of the height of the caps. I found this to be a problem because I ordered the 50v, 105 degree Panasonic caps that didn't fit with the enclosure attached, so I used the 4 good caps removed previously and replaced the bad one with a 470uf, 50v. 85 degree cap from Rubycon I found among my spare parts. Installed the parts and the monitor is working properly (for the last two hours) so I'm happy for as long as the repair lasts. Thanks again for the info.

SOURCE: dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if

It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.

Testimonial: "Excellent purchased the new adapter and and what do you know problem solved.Thanks a million."

Why won't my Dell Latitude e4300 power up


Exactly how far along does it 'go' in not starting back up? Do you get any actions at all when you hit the power button? Do any LED's light up? Can you press the test button on your battery and get any of the LED's there to light up? If the answers to these questions are NO, you might have a bad power supply. That would be the first place to look if you get no action at all. If you do get anything occurring when you press the power on button, then there are a whole series of questions a PC tech would go through to try and diagnose the problem. Not enough information here to go further.

Latitude D830 starts then shuts down quickly.


1. Make sure you are plugged into A/C.. Your battery could be running low.
2. Make sure there is nothing blocking the heat vents. This symptom is typical for overheating processors.

Blue led power light blinks even after shutdown


What operating system are you using? When the power led continues to slowly blink, that means that the laptop is in standby mode and not fully shut down. In Vista, if you hit the power button on the laptop or the power button under the start button, it is configured to go to standby and not shut down. Make sure to hit the arrow all the way to the right and select shutdown from the list of dropdown options.

You need to listen carefully to those beeps they will tellyou in a moment where to start looking for any problem

They are listed in your manual but if you dont have that then they re listed on the dell websiteunder the support section Q and A.

Dell Dimension 9200 keeps shutting down and won't start up


the key issue on the uncommanded shutdown is the POWER LED. If upon shutdown, the power LED Flashes AMBER, then the power supply is suspect.

If no flashing amber indication, then the next think I check is the heatsink (Processor overheating) remove, clean and apply arctic Silver heat transfer paste, see if the issuje goes away

Last but not least if the system is failing to boot, and displays a 3 4 diag LED code, then you may have a RAM module that is bad or may just need reseating. Running diags off of the Rersoujrce CD is something to look at too

Dell PowerEdge 1400SC Can not locate hard drives or partition


The controller (probably a RAID controller) that the drives are connected to is one for which Windows does not have the correct drivers. You need to supply the proper driver and .INF files during the initial load. The process used depends on the version of Windows you are installing.

Pulsating hard drive on startup and off


To eliminate a software problem, I installed another hard drive with the same operating system, and the problem still existed.
I also flashed the BIOS with no results.


The most logical conclusion is that the problem lays with power supply.
A new power supply was ordered today.

Dell Lattitude C840 Laptop


The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.
