Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer
My DELL Inspiron 530 works fine but since a couple of months sometime (without any deterministic situation) when I turn on it the orange led remains on and computer doesn't continue.
The fans continue to make noise.
I need to unplug the power cable and turn on again.
Any idea about this strange behaviour?
I'll save you 3 hours on the phone with DELL. Same problem.
If you are OK with this, turn power off, discharge system by pressing on button for 5 seconds. Identify the slot for the phone jack/modem. Remove it. Plug in and turn on. If that is the problem, turn off and insert the card in the adjacent slot. They asked that I replace the motherboard, so if you're under warranty, call them.

When this happens that is usually problem which includes bad PSU, or it can be
bad Capacitors on motherboard.The way to check it is, just to open the computer case ,
and check for bulged capacitors.If there are none cap bulged then it is definitley PSU.

It's most likely you're CPU. I just tried to upgrade the CPU in mine and got the same thing.

Go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag"(serial number) of the laptop. Confirm this is the model you have and select “manuals” on the left side column. View the "Dell Technology Guide" and then select "Troubleshooting".
If the power light is steady amber, a device may be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed. Remove and then reinstall the memory modules (see the documentation shipped with your computer). Remove and then reinstall any cards (see the documentation shipped with your computer).
