I think it may be a problem with the motherboard cause the power light should be green from what I remember. The fan isn't even turning on either which is very suspicious. Try another power supply if you have one handy and if that fails then the motherboard is bad. Even if your fan was bad, you would normally get video anyway before a warning message about the fan would come up.

If anything the problem is your power supply. First make sure all the power connections coming from the power supply to the motherboard are all snug. Check to see if there is a light on the board that indicates power flow. If you still can't get power to the system, replace the power supply itself. (the big box that the power connects to)

Power button if flashing orange and nothing else works


It's likely that your power supply has started to go out. There are several different leads with varying voltages & amps. If your computer is getting enough power to make a light flash yellow or orange then this often means that there is something wrong with one or more of the voltages from the power supply. Sometimes it means that something is wrong with your motherboard. Like: burned out capacitors, resistors, & etc.

Hello

Could be a bad stick of memory,try taking one out then starting pc.
Do this to all sticks.If pc starts then keep that stick out.

Second,try to check that cpu is secure and fan is working.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 and it won't boot up. When I turn it on the green power light comes on and hard drive activity light flashes however no fans come on, the screen doesn't show the Dell logo or...


i would have to disagree with jerry, while that seems reasonable if the motherboard fan isn't running at all then whether or not the video card is ok is somewhat irrelevant.
I would agree somewhat though, i think the PSU might be a good thing to check to see if it is functional.
when you power it on does the CPU fan start or shudder at least ? that would be my first guess for a problem if you had been having any problems recently
