SOURCE: My Dell 9100 desktop won't start.

Hey mate... Now there could be a number of things wrong with your PC.. First thing is that on the back of the main tower there are 4 Lights that glow if the system is ok but in case of issues they glow in different patterns according to the potential problem... look out for those lights n refer em to this chart

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim9100/en/SM/adtshoot.htm#wp1054146

Also in case of potential component failtures the system gives out beep codes in patterns (maybe the sounds u hear at startup)... Do a quick check

Now regardless we can perform a basic troubleshooting...now you seem to be tech savy enough so do one thing... remove all the chords from the system... then hold dowm the power button to discharge the flea power... now remove all the components one by one n reseat them immediately... this will reset the connections n then try n restart again... if the problem persists then post the 4 led code here n we'll go from there mate :-)

SOURCE: amber light flashing on my dell 5100, green light on motherboard

The green light just means it is plugged in and getting power.Try pulling the plug, the green light will go out. If you can remove the battery out of the motherboard, "it looks like a quarter", leaveit out for a couple minutes and out it in 'The same way it was" make sure you "look" at it before removing it, it has a little release thatenables it to lock in, or pop out. plug it in and give it a start. It may just be the settings got corrupted, that little battery saves the start settings, once it starts, we can go into the bios if any settings need changing, I'll keep an eye on this post, good luck

SOURCE: can't access hard drive getting IDE master hard drive SMS mess

You are getting a SMART error indicating that the hard disk drive is/has failing/failed. Likely, the only way to get data off the drive is to send it to a data recovery center, then install a new hard drive. Data recovery is generally expensive, but if you are interested you can contact places like DRIVESAVERS 800.440.1904

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Remove all PCI cards and see if you see if it powers on. Check USB ports too.

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok


Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional

Computer will not turn on


  • Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up.
    Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
    If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced.
    If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed.

Is the amber light blinking? Indicates PS not operating within specs. You can look at replacing the PS (~$79-99). GL
