Question about PC Desktops

Posted on Mar 08, 2008
I have a dell dimension 4700C. When I turn on the power, all I get is a flashing amber light. The computer does not boot up. If I leave the computer unplugged for about 5 minutes, Ithen plugged back in, I can hear the power supply kick in for about 2 second, then it stop. I then get a flash amber light. Any idea or recommendation?

Just got a Dell 4700c from a client with the same problem. The power supply has gone bad. I checked it with my power supply tester which said it was bad. I then hooked up a working power supply and the computer fired right up. The sucky thing about it is it's not a standard power supply. A regular power supply will not fit. While searching the internet, I find these little buggers cost about $100 and be sure you find one that has a SATA power cable, although you might be able to use an adapter, the fit is so tight and the drive is mounted right next to hinge on the case, it might not close correctly.
