    This is to allow the computer to be used in Europe and elsewhere where the wall voltage is 230. If you are in the USA, do NOT move the switch. You won't hurt anything but it will not work in that position. If you live where they have 230, using the 115 will FRY the power supply.

Don't! That's for foreign voltages. It should say 115 and 230. The 115 is for 120V systems while the 230 is for 240V systems. The actual voltage you get is usually a little less than ideal, so they design power supplies to accept a lower voltage.

Can't turn my computer on and i have a yellow blinking light on my dell dimension E510


Do you use a surge protector? If you do, try turning off the power supply to the surge protector and switch on again.
There are a number of causes for this problem, the most likely being a PSU problem or a motherboard fault/failure. To check the power from the PSU to the motherboard, you will need a multimeter to make sure enough power is going to the motherboard. Also check the motherboard closely to see if there is any signs of corrosion or blackened areas, which could be caused by overheating components. Check for leaky or burnt capacitors.

Dell dimension e510 won't turn on


Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.

Dell Dimension E510 Powers Up, Then Crashes


It's the processor or power supply. I cant be sure of which without checking it.

Check the fan over the processor heat sink to make sure its working cause it could mean that the processor is overheating If the fan turns and then it cuts off this could meant that the processor is dead. or the bios is corrupted. Try flashing the bios, there is a battery on the main boad, remove it. unplug the system first... when the battery is out press and hold the power button for 10 seconds then release. put the battery back in and try to turn it on..

If that fails then try a new power supply or one from another system to to check if the power supply is fine. YOu can aslo bridge the green and any black wire from the power supply's mainboard connector to see if the power supply runs. If all this fails then you may need to replace your processor,, I';d also recommend changing the power supply as well.
