Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Dimension 5100 Desktop that will not turn on.

The on button blinks as if the computer is on. Holding the button for greater than three seconds will not stop the blinking. And pushing the button does not turn it on. There is also a blinking light in the rear of the unit at the connection to the internet. I left the computer unplugged form the internet and power source last night. This morning I reconnected the power and the computer started up normally. I reconnected the internet cable and had no problems. This afternoon, the same symptoms as last night, and the computer will not boot up. Thanks.

For Dell brand computers, most of these computers have 2 "buttons" on the side. Push and hold these 2 buttons and hold the bottom of the computer case and pull up while holding those 2 buttons.
This should work on most Dell computers.

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.
