Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Have a dell dimension 4600. I have a blinking power light colored green but no power going to the computer. Fan doesn't work nothing opens or durns on what is wrong with my computer?
The two biggest culprits would be:
the power supply and the motherboard.
I'd start with the power supply since it's cheap and easy to install.
Find a local computer shop that sells 'em.
Make sure they've got a 100% return policy.
Swap 'em, if it works problem solved.
If not it's probably the motherboard. You could always have a local tech check it out.
Make sure they provide FREE diagnostics. It shouldn't cost you anything to have ti looked at.

Tips for a great answer:
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
