Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
I have a Dell dimensions 5100.
The power button 'Flickers' orange, it is not a standard flash but flickers as though there is a faulty connection.
Any ideas what it could be.
This happened a cuople of days ago and after a bit is testing (removing /reseating/cleaning) I played about with the button and it started up agaian, although it then blue screened and I had to run a chkdsk on the drive to repair it.
It has now happened again.
I am assuming based on the fact I had it working again that it is not a power supply issue - could it be a faulty power button?
The power light is tied to the Mother Board and therefore it could be an issue with just about anything on the PC. Here is the trouble shooting documentation and the link should bring you directly to what the various conditions of the power LED mean.
There is also a detailed listing for the HD light as well as some diagnostic lights (if your paticular variation is equiped)
