How do I fix a dimension E510 with a solid amber power light?


A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Amber lights at the front of my dell dimension cant boot up


This can mean various things, but I've had a few of these happen and it's usually caused by a failed power supply. Calling their tech support they will ask you to remove memory and disconnect hard and optical drives then try again. If it still is amber, it's a power supply.

Dell Dimension 2400 with steady amber power light and diagnostic lights of ABC green and D off. What could be the problem?


Steady amber power LED is indicative of a problem with the motherboard. Remove all external connections except power, remove all PCI Cards, ram, disconnect power from all drives, turn on see if power LED is still steady amber. If it is, more than likely the motherboard has a failure. Also check to see if the CPU heatsink is firmly seated (The plastic retainer has been known to fail causing the CPU to overheat)

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Steady amber Power light


You are looking at a new mother board. I would take it to a certified technician shop, so they can run a stress test on the motherboard for final benidiction.
