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.

Dell dimension 2350 won't boot, the psu fan comes on and the fan for the heatsink, the hard drive makes so noise what so ever and the disk drives won't open at all.

Depending on the Power and Diagnostic LED indications the system appears to be in a no post state. If the power LED is flashing Amber, the power supply is suspect. Solid Amber, indicates a motherboard problem. The Diagnostic LEDs on the back marked ABCD can give more specific POST error details.

We were given a Gateway EL500S computer to use for our kids. We set everything up. We did try to install an ethernet card. When we turned it on, nothing happened. The light comes on the ''on'' button but...

when you say no fan you mean the cpu fan or the case fan. the cpu fan is on top the cpu. make sure that at least this starts. if it does not start then shut down your pc immediately as it can burn the cpu.
it could be lots of reasons, but make sure that you have connected the power supply cables correctly to the motherboard. probably the motherboard may have a small led. check if that lights up. it means that power gets to the motherboard.
i would advice to find someone that has more knowledge.

If you have a multimeter, you can test the voltage at one of the spare Molex plugs (power plugs that feed the hard drives and CD/DVD drives). If it reads anything other than +/-5v or +/-12v for either the red and its black pair or the yellow and its black pair, then your power supply is bad.

You can take the power supply out and have it tested at a PC shop. Note the positions of all of the cables coming from it for later. If it needs to be replaced, get one of the approximate same size in watts.

This happens because your CPU is overheating, open your PC and blow any dust off the openings and CPU/Power supply fans, if you think one of the fans is not working... replace it.

New Computer Wont Boot!

when you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.
