    Hi Geekman, the cpu came out after i went back in to check on the fan , the compound was thick and acted like a glue, so it got lifted out i however,wiped it off and placed it back in after unlocking the latch and securing it and latching it back, could that be the problem?, i had the power supply repaired but still no joy, lights still strobe on and off

    Hi Geekman, i borrowed a battery and the notebook booted, it seems that the adapter still has problems so i guess i will have to hunt for one on ebay or use a universal adapter.. thanks for your interest...

I found out that the power adapter was the culprit here, planning to purchase one, it seemed it could not deliver enough juice to power up the laptop, i borrowed a charged battery from a inspiron , and voila it booted...oh well....

My dell dimension 3100 blinks amber. The Number 3 also blinks on the front. I've read that could mean a processor failure, whatever that means. But I opened the computer and there is an amber light...


I think your Thermal Paste on the CPU HeatSink might be dry. When this happens it like metal touching metal and the computer shorts out so it can't boot. You need to open the case and you will see 4 screws that hold the cpu heatsink on top of the processor chip. There are lots of videos on Youtube that show you how to replace the thermal paste (sometimes called thermal compound). I'm going to post a link here to one. I normally apply a thin coat of the paste all over the cpu and also on the heatsink. Then I put a coat of the paste in the middle of the cpu just like the video shows. This insures that I have coating all over the cpu and the cpu/heatsink. Don't worry as the video says about letting it dry. Put it on and turn your computer back on and start using it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQgCUcAAdac

Take the battery out, connect the power plug and see if the laptop runs without the battery connected, the main battery may need to be replaced.

Dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if


It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.
