Question about Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
Have a Dell dimension e510, when starting up amber light is solid, no power from usb ports, or to monitor, computer light on mother board comes on fan comes on c drive lights up act likes it coming on. But still no green power light. Can anyone help figure this out can this be a mother board issue or pcu issue? Any trouble shooting ideas I can try? thank you for any suggestions.
On my E510 the problem is the front I/O panel. To see if that is your problem unplug the power, pull the I/O panel cable from the motherboard (in front of the power supply next to the ram), pull the bios battery for 30 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the power cord back in. It should start if the I/O panel is the problem. Here is Dell's part number for the assembly - "X8543 Front I/O and Control Panel Assembly". Until you replace it you will have to remove the bios battery every time you turn it off to get it to start again. Rebooting it is not affacted.

Unplug all the Harddrives, Cd Drives attached to the motherborad.
Try turning up the system. If it boots, you may to have to change the I/O cables.
Still if it is amber, then your motherboard is having the problem with. As long as the LED glows PCU gotta be okay.
Kindly get back for futher help
