Question about Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer

1 Answer

I have a Dell 530S Desktop. When I power up, the light goes to yellow and nothing else happens. I opened it up and blow out all the dust. The main fan tries to go for a split second upon power up but then nothing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Greetings, My Dell Inspiron 530S has a small


I did not look up the manual for this one. But most computers have a flashing light when the hard drive is accessed. When the drive is accessed you can hear it to. So looks to me you have a good working computer. If the sound of a hard disk is loud, you are in trouble. You should start making backups of everything if you did not do that before. If it is really just the fan, you should clean the fan and the inlet (outlet) of the airflow. most fans will accumulate dust and that will influence the warming up of the processor (your Dual-core E2160) causing the fan to run faster and faster, not capable to cool the processor enough. Often you can blow out the dust, without opening the computer, but if there stays dust in the commuter and you are not technical enough, please ask a technician to clean pup the compete airflow.

Dell Inspiron 530 S goes into power save mode and either fails to respond to pressing a key or powers off


test the PSU if the power supply units fan is not working the psu is faulty
check leads from motherboard to hard drive make sure connections are secure and dust free including electrical extensions
if its a 40pin ide this will be the first to fail

even something as small as a faulty fan lead can cause this ptoblem
computers need power and data to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and have a finishing point

make sure your ram and cmos battery are dust free and securely seated
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
hope this helps
