Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
I pulled the side panel off and pluged the computer in and a green light begins to flash on the mother board. no lights on the front light up at all. if i unplug the computer the light begins to flash slower and slower. the it stays lit for a bout three seconds and gose out. any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Your motherboard is failing.
It is time to get a new PC.
You can try to find another motherboard to put into your case, but why would you want to do that? Unless you know for certain that the RAM, hard drive, video card etc are all good.

You have to ask yourself these questions.
The boot sequence is as follows.
First check the power supply. The fans to the power supply should start to spin. If you are getting power, check the power supply to see that it meets +12.0 V, -12.0 V, +5 V, -5 V, and +/- 3.3 V.
You will need a hard drive to trip the power supply.
Next, the CPU needs to start up.
Then the RAM
The the BIOS loads and checks the main circuits.
After that, then the boot loader is searched for, usually from a hard drive.

Somewhere on in the tower there should be a sheet representing what formations of lights mean which...
Maybe you got bad RAM?
Maybe your Harddrive is dead?
Maybe your motherboard is fried. I should tell you.
