If you fan isn't turning like it should, it is definitely a power supply issue. Go out and purchase a power supply with 250-300 watts...thats a good standard wattage!!

My dell xps 400 was shutting off and all i was getting was a solid amber light in front. I was able to hold it in for a bit and then press it and turn it back on for about 2 weeks now. It finally shut off...


You more likely had a temperature issue with the CPU.
Had the CPU fan started to sound like an airplane warming up?
If so, you may have finally burned out the CPU.

Yes it's possible that it was reporting a problem with the power supply, but the only way to know for sure is to replace it.

In the meantime, eliminate everything else.
Disconnect power from EVERYTHING except the motherboard.
If it powers up, then it's possible that either your motherboard is failing (and now works under the decreased load), or one of the things you unplugged has failed.

If the unit springs to life, turn it off, and start reconnecting things.
If it fails constantly whenever 1 specific thing is plugged in, that thing or the motherboard chip that controls it is the problem.

Start button flashing


It depends on the color, if it's green or amber. This may indicate the computer is in sleep mode. Press the power button to see if you can turn on the pc. If it doesn't press and hold power button for five seconds. You may give more details. I hope this helps

Don't starts yellow light flasing


If the power button on the tower is flashing Amber, the fault is the power supply. Replace the power supply and they system should work.
If the power supply doesn't resolve then the 2nd most likely failure is the Front IO panel (Circuit card behind the power button)

Dell XPS 200 Computer shuts off leaving blinking amber light


3 most common solutions to your problem are:
  1. Bad power supply; once it heats up will quit without warning
  2. Bad heatsink/fan; processor heats up and will lock up your Pc
  3. Bad motherboard
Try opening the machine and give the inside a thorough cleaning, paying special attention to the heatsink and fan. Once clean and you've ensured the fan is operating, put it back together and see if your problem is fixed. If not, a new power supply will likely fix your problem. Best of luck.

No power to my computer.


hi
stuart

just read this carefully.................

Unplug the power cord and the display cable from the monitor. Now press the power button for 60 sec exact. Plug the cables and your system is working................ This is just a power drain.
