Question about Dell Dimension E510 Dual Core 2.8 Ghz (847403171179) PC Desktop
Same problem except I could get it to boot occassionally to a bootable cd with Memtest86 and ram would test fine. Rebooting then gives 3-4 light error code for ram. Leave it sit awhile and reboots to cd fine again. Even got to diagnostics on hard drive and ran couple of hours of tests- everything ok- reboot fails! Found several things to try on other forums: Replace CMOS battery on motherboard Check usb ports on front panel for damaged pins inside Slide voltage selector on power supply from 110 to 220 and back while turned off and unplugged of course. Lastly- apparently the power supplies on the E510 are flakey- capacitor inside goes bad- but that seemed to be associated with flashing amber power light failure. Still worth checking if all else fails.

Bad ram memory stick.
Find by process of elimination and replace.

Ok what you might try is get a new hard drive and install windows on there and see what happens. Also if you are able to before you try a new hard drive you should do a system restore and restore it back to the day that windows was installed.
