Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop

Dell Dimension 5150 does not start

Everything is fine one day and the next day it won't turn on. However, the power button has blinking light. Sometimes if I plug is off for some time and then try, it works. This time, I plugged it off yesterday and kept it off for almost 24 hours, yet it didn't start.

Please help.

Thanks

Could be a number of things, First take the ram out and then put it back in and see if that helps. next I would unplug any devices not required to start the computer.
You need to be familiar with the inside of the computer to do this.
Most likely suspect however is the power supply.

Dell dimension 5150. wont start


Most times when you have flashing yellow light there is issue ether with cpu or motherboard. Just to be safe test the power supply and if ok then try to replace cpu and go from there. If power supply issue just replace it. Might be easier to take it to pc repair store. Good Luck

Flashing orange light on power button of Dell Dimension 5150 ...


If you experience the dreaded blinking orange power light, make sure to check your motherboard for blown capacitors as well as corrosion on the motherboard. Looks like the photo below.... if you see this then a replacement motherboard is needed.

Dell Dimension 5150 automatically turns off


That flashing amber light is usually a sign the power supply is failed or is failing. I would suspect the power supply is the problem in yours. It is the better of the two problems connected with the flashing amber light..the other is motherboard is failing. Arrrr!
hope this helps (it takes a standard- oh say 350 watt 20-24 pin power supply unit.)
Hope an answer helps.
Please leave rating, thankyou

Blinking yellow power led


check at the back of the tower you would find 4 LEDs(small lights) labeled ABCD in a row or you might have 1234 on the front panel. note the status of these LEDs when the problem occurs and check for the solution accordingly on the support.dell. website.

would also suggest to disconnect all the devices (keyboard mouse printers etc.)next time the problem occurs and then try to start the computer
