You can either turn off the "standby" option in your power settings or make sure your devices (in your device manager) are set to "wake from standby". This is important for USB devices, Keyboard, mouse...etc.

"A possible VRM 1 failure has occurred"

VRM stands for Voltage Regulator Module.

It regulates Voltage for the Processor.

The Processor MUST have a steady, 'clean', supply of Voltage; and it MUST be kept within the tight voltage range, for the Processor.

Too little, or too much; and the Processor turns off. (BIOS turns it off)

Your motherboard supports two Processors.

1) Processor (CPU_0) Zero which is in the middle of the motherboard, next to the PCI Express x16 slot;

2) and Processor (CPU_1) One, which is next to it.

The VRM 1 has failed. Needs to be replaced.

VRM's used are interchangeable.

IMHO you can remove Processor 1 (CPU_1), and it's VRM, and still use the computer; albiet slower though.

I have a broken Dell Precision 470 Workstation. The symptoms are as follows: Won't power up; Flashing yellow power LED on front panel; Blank STR_LED on motherboard; Yellow AUX_PWR LED on motherboa


Flashing front powerlight is often a result of a faulty powersupply, try another powersully on the pc and see if the problem gets solved. I've seen a few of these cases personally.

My dell precision 470 beeps loud for 10 seconds when i turn it on and it has no signal to any monitor any ideas?


Please refer to the beep error codes for your work station here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ws670/en/ug_en/advtrbl.htm#wp1058075

Usually a 10 second beep is an issue with RAM not detected/installed or an issue with CPU

Dell Prec470 with a flickering amber light in front when i switch it on.


See my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Whats happening is that the computer system is not passing the Power On Self Test or POST. Therefore the computer monitor does not receive a signal and goes into standby mode.

Take care

My dell precision 470 keeps burning video cards


Have you replaced the power supply at some point? You may have the wrong power supply...Your processor may not be able to handle the Graphic Card that you're trying to use...Graphics cards are very demanding on a computer and you may have pushed your computer beyond its limits with regard to how much graphics it can handle...

I have a broken Dell Precision 470 Workstation. The symptoms are as follows: Won't power up; Green power LED on front panel; Green STR_LED on motherboard; Yellow AUX_PWR LED on motherboard; No beep or VGA...


sounds like a motherboard failure.
Basic troubleshooting, disconnect all external connections except power, see if indications change, if no go remove all expansion cards see if any change, if no go disconnect all drives see if any change. If none, then motherboard.
If at any step you get a change in indications, then see if you can isolate the faulty item

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."
