Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
Fist time this happened, checked obvious things like power cable, power unit, possible suspend/lock up eg pressed switch for 5 secs, all ok, noticed mobo lcd is permanently lit green when power is connected but pc does nothing when switch pressed.
So unplugged a few things from mobo, took out switch unit and re-connected and pc powered up. However when switched off would not switch on again. So repeated process of unplugging stuff from mobo and reconnecting and power came back, so from this point on did not turn pc off, always set to standby instead and it has carried on for 3 months, ocassionaly do a restart or even switch off for updates, but as long as it was switched back on immediately it worked. But the inevitable happened it was accidently switched off overnight and cant get it back on again even with unplugging stuff from mobo this time.
Try checking your Computer Management Services.
I had a similiar problem with a laptop. Just stopped working one day. Could not shutdown because it would not restart without disconnecting power. Could not reboot, because it would not restart without power being disconnected.
Checked Computer Management Services and found some of the services had been turned off.
Try this and let me know if you need more help.
