Don't know how old your machine is but the most common cause is a bad power supply. Some have had success by removing the CMOS battery and after replacing it have gotten their machine to boot up but in almost every case, the problem returned and the culprit was the power supply. Depending on what you're willing to spend they run from $35 and up. Best of luck and pleae post back with any other questions.

From what you have said it sounds like your battery might be the problem. Have you connected the computer to the wall and tried to turn it on. Is the same happening then?

Google Dell W2600 blink codes. You're tv is doing a self diagnostic and letting you know what's wrong with by flashing the yellow light. Count how many time and if there is a sequence to it, then look it up.

Hello,

This model has been having problems with the motherboard that can cause that exact problem, Not powering up, Flashing yellow light or locking up right after booting up. The first thing to check is parts called capacitors on the motherboard. We have an article posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/dell-optiplex-745-repair/ that has detailed pictures and information about this issue. The pictures are of the tower case Optilpex 745 but the board is the same for your unit. Check it out and see if your board has this issue. If you can solder then you should be able to fix it yourself for less than $15.00 If your board does not have the bad capacitors then the blinking yellow light is a failure in the power supply unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

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

Computer won't turn on


A flashing yellow power LED is an indication of a failure in the power supply. If under warranty, Dell should be replacing it. If out of warranty, then a 400/450 Watt ATX power supply should resolve the issue.

Start button flashes yellow - will not turn on


I have found that if the CMOS battery is removed and the unit unpluged for 5 mins (reseting the unit to default config) It will restart. The battery should not be replaced thus to maintain your date and time settings, it shoud not be unpluged for long periods.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
