Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
I have a dell dimension 5100 desktop that was working fine yesterday. Today when I push the button to start up it does nothing. I have checked the power cord and it is fine. The surger protector is fine as the monitor and speakers are plugged into the same protector. Have also tried other outlets with same result. Any suggestions?
Hi...I have a Dell Dimension 5100...I think to solve u guys problem, i think you should reboot the hardware plug into your motherboards...make sure everything is plug into *********** bored properly. Maybe the bios system might be confuse.

I unplugged power from computer, removed motherboard battery, after all excess power was gone... ie green light went out, I plugged power back in, got a fast flashing amber light on front of computer, pressed the power button once, and after about 1 to 2 minutes the system came on, of course the bios stuff was gone, as well as date and time, but seems motherboard is working fine, now I dont know what to do.... possible bad bios chip???

Can you see a green light on located on the mother board ? I had the same problem with mine right after the warrranty was off, The mother board failed, But you should make sure thats it first by making sure everything Inside of the computer is tight and secure.Unplug and make sure there is no power on and unplugged,Before you touch anything inside your computer discharge any static electricity by touching the metal on the inside of the tower. The Memory modules Make sure that they are pushed in securely in there slots and video card is Pushed in and tight, and any other extras you may have plugged into it, After you do all that put everything back and try to reboot see if that get you up and going.
