Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
My dell xps wont start properly, I press the power button and it only blinks yellow. I turned it off and left it off for 2 days and tried again and it turned on fine. After i turned it off again and tried to reboot it, the same problem happened.
Sounds like a heat problem. Make sure your CPU fan is spinning, make sure there is plenty of airflow through the chassis, check your video connection ( if it is an external card )

I have an HP that does close to the same thing. Mine goes into a 'Perm-Sleep' mode that I can't seem to pull it out of. I have to remove the battery, then unplug the power adapter, not in that order. Leaving it in this condition for about a minute so that all the power stored in the RAM goes away. This is the same as holding the power button down for 10 to 15 seconds until it completly turns off, sometimes referred to as a 'Cold Boot.'
Once I have powered it down I have to go into the control panel and select the power settings and make sure that hibernate is not an option. If you close the lid on the laptop and the systems goes into a sleep state, it may be configured to go to hibernate after, say an hour or when the battery gets close to being drained. My computer does not like to come out of hibernate and I have to Cold Boot it, so I just don't let it go into a hibernation in the first place anymore.
