Hello, Last night I shut down my Dell E510 desktop - the proper way - by going to the start menu, shut down, turn power off. Then, today, I pressed the power button on the front of my tower and...


This sounds like a definite power issue. This means that the problem could range from being as simple as the power button itself not working/disconnected to the power supply being dead.

Things to try:

1. Have the side of your computer open and press the power button. Notice if any fans start to move or anything that happens.

2. Do you notice the Hard drive light flashing at all when turning on?

3. Has anyone else been using or been close in proximity to the computer that could have bumped it, causing something to come loose?

4. ONLY if you feel competent enough, check the cable connections inside the computer. Make sure to disconnect from the wall for 30 seconds and reconnect before touching any cables inside. Leaving the cable connected allows the computer case itself to act as a ground to prevent static shock.

Good luck!

Dell Dimension 5100 power up problem


I had same issue with dimension 5100 Desktop. I work at Circuit City as the Lead Technician. I found that swapping the power supply did fix the problem! When i initially tested the power supply with a standard power supply tester, the power supply appeared normal. But after swapping the PC works great. Thx for the good idea!
