Question about AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8GHz 256k Socket 754 CPU Retail (GXCPUS3100)
When i hit the power button on the tower it lights up but the computer does not boot up. As if the motherboard was not receiving power
You don't indicate if there are any beeps. It could be RAM or the Power Supply.Did anything strange happen the last time it was running? When you turn the button on, does the fan in the back spin? If it doesn't, it's definetly the power supply.

Does the CPU fan rotate? And no monitor activity? Sometimes the hard disc has some kind of activity. This could be attributed to loose/failed in memory in the syste. You can try to reseat or clean the memory edge connector with clean eraser. But power down first yur unit and unplugged to wall socket no power connection shall be connected.
Sometimes it doesn't make any beep code. If beep is generated this could be video problem. But check first the Ram and video, before getting to anything.
Post an update.

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.
A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data.
This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.
((A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly.
This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.))
A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
You should consider visiting Dell Support and downloading the manual for your
your Dell computer. So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them.
hope this helps
