Computer keep rebooting


Your problem either lies in hardware or software, I have found it normally to be a software problem. In which case you need to either try to repair the windows installation or complete a fresh install of your operating system. If you need to retrieve information from your computer send it to a computer technician.

My DELL Dimension 5150 fan is making a great noise, how can I fix it?


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel.
Buy a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job" to remove dust from "everywhere", including the fan(s).

If you still get noise, then it's time to replace the fan.
Take the computer to any computer-store, so that they can sell you a new fan that matches the current fan.

Dell 5150c shuts down orange flashing light


As a temporary measure, taking the side panel off the dell 5150c stopped it from shutting down, so in my case it was clearly a heat problem, as suggested by previous the poster. The following instructions assume you're comfortable replacing computer hardware components - do at your own risk!

The solution is to buy an 'air duster' and some thermal compound for the CPU heat sink. If your CPU fan doesn't sound healthy (mine didn't), also buy a new one (ca. £20 on ebay: search for G9474 ).

Read the service manual: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150C/en/sm/index.htm for details on how to install / remove the fan and heat sink.

Clean out dust from the heat sink with air duster. Remove the fan, and clean or replace (recommended). Also clean the grill in front of the fan. Clean off old thermal compound from the CPU / heat sink and replace with a thin layer of fresh compound. Replace heat sink and side panel and you're done.

Flashing Amber Light on a Dell Desktop is a defective power supply.
You can get a replacement from various vendors, or Dell.
Good Luck.
