Im my experience the flashing orange light indicates failed power supply 90% of the time. if you are short on cash take your pc to an independently owned computer repair shop and ask them to test the power supply. if they confirm our suspicions then replace the power supply. After replacing the power supply the computer will function properly.

Hope I helped with the repair of your problem.
An Accept from you is how I get paid.
And a positive feed back tells me how I did with the repair.

Arjun.

Can't boot up Dell 5100 Dimension, amber light flashes


When you mean the amber light, is that the blinking hard drive access light or the power light? Different cases have different colors on it. Mine has blue and green lights.

If you see the boot screen (bios) and then after it goes to boot, does it blink and hang?

This could be a simple operating system issue, hard drive or hardware/motherboard issue. If you could provide more information, that would help.

Dell Dimension 5100 Won't start up


Hi

First disconnecting the power cord and re-seat all connections (Keyboard, Mouse espercially). Connect up the power cord and try powering the PC.

To help you troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the lights identify the problem.

If the computer failed to start up check the diagnostic lights color and sequence and Check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147

Alternatively, contact Dell Support with the diagnostic lights color and sequence to raise a service call if the system if under warranty.

Dell Dimensions 5100 Power Button


The power light is tied to the Mother Board and therefore it could be an issue with just about anything on the PC. Here is the trouble shooting documentation and the link should bring you directly to what the various conditions of the power LED mean.

There is also a detailed listing for the HD light as well as some diagnostic lights (if your paticular variation is equiped)
