    Did you check the outlet first or if your using AVR?does the LED lit when you push the power on button?

    Does anything happen? Lights? Sound? Is it plugged in? You have given us little useful information to go on. History? Never worked ? Etc.

My computer was downloading windows updates overnight and froze. Tried turning it off from the power button, but did not work so I unplugged the computer. Few hours later I plugged the computer back in and...


You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.

How do i reboot my dell computer


Hello,

The first way you can do so is Click Start, Turn Off PC, then select Restart.

Or you can push the restart button on your desktop. Should be right next to the main power button but smaller.

If all else fails, just push the power button, or hold it for a few seconds and it will turn the PC off. Then just power it back on.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

No video output, and no power down


Check the monitor plug for a pin that has become pushed in. If the pins are good test the monitor with another computer.

Also check for a second monitor output, as the one you are using may not be active.

As far as the power button not working there could be several explanations. The button itself may not work. If when pushed the button turn the computer on, then you may want to check within the bios power management setting to verify the power button is setup to turn the pc off.

Computer will not turn on


It sounds like your power switch (the buttone you push to turn on the computer) is stuck, or you have a bad power supply (that provide power to the computer). Electric components sometimes go back if they are not used often.

Computer won't turn on unless I unplug the Ethernet Cable


Is the Ethernet built-in on the system board? I would go to BIOS (hit F2 while booting the PC) and disable the ethernet. then restart the PC. See if it stays on with or without the Ethernet cable plugged in. If it does. The built-in Ethernet circuit is the problem. I would buy a Ethernet adapter ($20).and install it. and leave the built-in ethernet disabled.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Power light blinking yellow after sitting a while


Unplug computer, disconnect all usb/monitor/internet, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop out the BIOS battery (looks like a big watch battery and use a small flathead screwdriver to depress the spring lock on one side), plug in computer, hold power button for about 20 seconds (must reset BIOS or something), let up on power button, wait 10 seconds and push power button. The computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stable (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

If this has worked you have proven that it's not the power supply (it turned on).

Go buy a new battery (CR2032 3 volt). Unplug computer, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop in new battery, plug in (you should notice the power button blinking amber again), hold power button until it stops blinking (about 20 sec....again must reset BIOS or something), wait 10 sec., push power button. the computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stabe (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

Now, close case, plug in all usb/monitor/internet/etc. Power up computer. You'll get an internal floppy drive error. Push F2 (maybe F1) to get into the BIOS settings and go to "drives" and turn off the internal floppy. Save and exit. The computer should boot properly now.

This seems to be a big problem with the e510, my theory is that this one small battery is the root of most of these failures (as these computers usually fail after 1-2 years), not the power supply or the motherboard (heck, when you replace the motherboard it comes with a new one of these batteries...a several hundred dollar piece of hardware, with a $5 battery that will actually fix it).
