You have to replace the video card my friend and try again or use the on-board graphics by connecting the moniter to the graphics port on the motherboard but you will have to remove the graphics card and change the boot seqence for the on-board graphics to start first if it needs to

After lightening strike it could be anyone of your components. Memory, video card, power supply, CPU, hard drive.

Unfortunately, the only for sure way is to test each piece one by one to see which one is the culprit.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com


In order to fix the yellow flashing light please remove and reinstall the ram and graphic card
reset the cmos

Also refer to the Dells Technical Support troubleshooting steps:

It couold also be the front USB ports that some time causes the computer not to power on and the blinking yellow lights.

Thank You

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 and it won't boot up. When I turn it on the green power light comes on and hard drive activity light flashes however no fans come on, the screen doesn't show the Dell logo or...


i would have to disagree with jerry, while that seems reasonable if the motherboard fan isn't running at all then whether or not the video card is ok is somewhat irrelevant.
I would agree somewhat though, i think the PSU might be a good thing to check to see if it is functional.
when you power it on does the CPU fan start or shudder at least ? that would be my first guess for a problem if you had been having any problems recently
