Seems to be a Memory or a Motherboard failure. Make sure the memory you upgraded are the ones which are compatible to the system.
The compatible memory modules for your system are:
DIMM, 128MB, DDR2, 400M, 16X64, 8, 240pins
DIMM, 256MB, DDR2, 400M, 32X64, 8, 240pins
DIMM, 512MB, DDR2, 400M, 64X64, 8, 240pins
DIMM, 1G, DDR2, 400M, 128X64, 8, 240pins

The power light not turning on can be the Front bezel issue and not a system/motherboard failure. Please revert for any more issues.

My GX520 was shut down as usual last night...I turned on this morning and I get nothing...just a little yellow/amber light blinking where it is normally green....help


Here is the info straight from Dell. looks like you have an internal power issue. You will most likely need to contact Dell directly for assistance, they are pretty good about giving support even if the system is no longer covered under warranty.

If the power light is blinking amber -
The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Since it sounds like an issue with the Power first try to release flea power.Disconnect the charger,remove battery,press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.Reconnect the battery and charger.Turn on system and check if it turns on. For further help please check Dell Inspiron 1525 Manual. Also confirm if the light on the charger stays on,when connected to the system.

The brake lights and reverse lights do not work


I am assuming the rest of the lights work fine?If they do it is not likely a fuse because a fuse would be associated with more than just the rear lights.Have you checked bulbs?It is not necessary to check all of them but I would at least check 1 of both systems.

The message light does not check all internal systems.

Have someone at a local parts store do a free code scan for you, this will tell you what code is making the light come on, and what that code indicates is wrong.

My dell dimension 2400 doesn't power on. The light on the power button flashes orange.


Hello. If you don't post (ie, complete the BIOS check), one of the first things to try is to reseat all of your memory modules and interface cards. If that doesn't work, the power supply and motherboard itself would likely be the problem, but those are hard to diagnose without taking a computer in to a repair shop.

Your manual can be found online here:

Take a look at page 35, and that should show you some steps in the right direction, hopefully! Thanks!

Have a yellow amber light blinking


A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Dell Dimension 5100 Won't start up


Hi

First disconnecting the power cord and re-seat all connections (Keyboard, Mouse espercially). Connect up the power cord and try powering the PC.

To help you troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the lights identify the problem.

If the computer failed to start up check the diagnostic lights color and sequence and Check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/tshoot1.htm#wp1120147

Alternatively, contact Dell Support with the diagnostic lights color and sequence to raise a service call if the system if under warranty.
