If you unplug the power cord from the wall and the PSU, then flick the little red voltage switch on the back up and then back down again, plug it back in and it should work again

SOURCE: gx260 pc wont start

Either the motherboard or power supply are bad. I've had both be the cause of the problem. Check the motherboard for bulging and discolored capacitors. The same can be true of the power supply.

To the guy above who said his were out of warranty. If the motherboard is the cause of the problem, Dell will replace it until near the end of January. Just call them up and try to convince them. We are an educational customer, but everyone should be able to get it. It's a known defect.

SOURCE: No display and wont boot

A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Power supply is easier and cheaper to replace.

SOURCE: unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520

Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

SOURCE: dell gx 520 long beeps and unable boot display?What's your problem?

Usually the beeps ore associated with ram memory failure ..or video card not being well plugged or being faulty ..To stat check the ram memory ..Just remove them all ..(if you have more modules) ..and after that insert one by one and try to boot ..If it still makes the same noise (beep ) and each one ..it means the ram is ok ..and the fault from other way ..If it starts with only one one ..it means the other is faulty ..Anyway ..usually the ram memory does not damage itself ..but most likely does not make contact well ..so plug them well back in the slot and try again ..
If it always make that beep ..try to see if you have a pci or agp or video card ..and if you do ..remove the card and post it back ..Usually if you remove it and you have a on board card ..you can already boot up if the card is faulty ..and use the card on board until you get another card ..
(the idea is that for the ram fault the beep is short and in some kinda loop ..but if it starts the fan and keep beeping it is the video card to blame .It is either out of slot and does not making contact well or is damaged and need to be replaced.

Precision T7400 power supply sounding an alarm


Did you open the case on your computer? It may have an open case alarm which is a small switch typically located near the edge of the cover you removed. Make sure the case cover is completely installed, then see if the alarm goes off.

No power only orange power light


Hi, It most likely is a faulty power supply or a motherboard issue. Remove the power cord then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. This will release any static buildup that might be in the computer and sometimes that causes it not to boot. If nothing is happening it is more likely your power supply than the motherboard.

My Dell 100L will not switch on and battery will not charge.


since the LED is orange it might be a ram issue. try to locate the memory modules in your computer then try to reseat them. or if you have 2 ram modules try to remove 1 first then try to turn on the laptop check if it will do the same thing. then try removing 2 ram modules check if it will beep. if no beeps ask for mobo replacement. if it has beeps take note of the beep codes.
