Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.

Can't turn my computer on and i have a yellow blinking light on my dell dimension E510


Do you use a surge protector? If you do, try turning off the power supply to the surge protector and switch on again.
There are a number of causes for this problem, the most likely being a PSU problem or a motherboard fault/failure. To check the power from the PSU to the motherboard, you will need a multimeter to make sure enough power is going to the motherboard. Also check the motherboard closely to see if there is any signs of corrosion or blackened areas, which could be caused by overheating components. Check for leaky or burnt capacitors.

I shut down my Dell Dimension E510 last night and today when I pressed the on button, the computer wont turn on - not even an orange light on the power button. I tried disconnecting all connected...


Try this procedure! click here. After checking your power supply and it is working fine, put it back again into your computer casing. Next thing to do is to check your motherboard switch (power on). Look for the manual of your motherboard and look for the power on switch. If you find it then get a screw driver and short the pin using the screw driver. Be careful not to touch the other pin! But you have to check all the computer components to determine what is exactly the cause why it's not functioning. If it's not turning on your computer while you short the power switch on that means probably your motherboard fail. Other option is, in order to troubleshoot the problem of your computer you must have an extra computer with the same model and plug all your components there one by one to determine what is exactly the problem of your computer. Then you can decide what computer parts need to be replace. Have a nice day!

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Computer won't turn on


A flashing yellow power LED is an indication of a failure in the power supply. If under warranty, Dell should be replacing it. If out of warranty, then a 400/450 Watt ATX power supply should resolve the issue.
