Couple of things to try.

Before we go into trouble shooting steps make sure you aren't on carpet and are grounded. Always make sure the system is powered off when you start removing hardware.

1. Remove everything but the most critical components from the motherboard. basically all you want plugged in is the memory.Unplug or remove any pci or pci express cards, the hard drive, and any other piece of hardware on the board that isn't critical.

2. If the system still doesn't post then try alternating ram sticks to see if perhaps one has gone bad.

3. If the same thing still occurs then chances are your power supply has gone bad. you can test it by plugging in a none good one but make sure you buy a power supply for a dell because they are inverted in the case and a regular power supply will not fit in the case.

hope this helps

How to reset the machine


Reset Procedure for Equator / Hirundo ( EZ3612CEE / EZ2512CEE / EZ1612V )
If the door of the machine is opening you can follow the below reset procedure so that the machine will function properly but if the door in your machine is not opening you need to first get the door to open by following the procedure as stated in the link http://www.fixya.com/support/r4240518-door_not_opening_in_equator_hirundo
Resting the unit will make sure that all the memory storage in the chip will be erased and hence the unit will be ready for a new cycle.
Reset Procedure
  1. Make sure that the machine is turned OFF.
  2. Make sure that the door is opening.
  3. Set the dryer & wash temperature knobs to the off position (12 o'clock / pointing vertically upwards)
  4. Make sure that the door is latched properly.
  5. Set the washer knob on the Red Reset position and switch on the power.
  6. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  7. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  8. Set the washer knob to the Green Reset Position and switch on the power.
  9. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  10. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  11. Set the washer knob to the Grey Reset Position and switch on the power.
  12. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  13. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  14. Set the washer knob to the Reset Position on Delay Time and switch on the power.
  15. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  16. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
You have now reseted the unit and the unit should work fine now , in case you observe that the washer knob/Dial is going round and round all by itself now please go through the link for fault codes for further diagnosis.
Hope this procedure helps.

Yellow light flickers 4 times when trying to turn


If you don't get the flickering lights when you try to boot up with the AC adapter hooked up but no battery, it sounds like the problem is most likely a bad power adapter. Your battery is dead, and that's why you get the flickering lights, but the AC adapter is bad so you can't use it to power the laptop or charge the battery.

You can typically get a new adapter for $20 or so, or maybe even cheaper on eBay.

Power on Blue Light is flickering


In use or In stand by mode the blue light will flicker. It is a external signal on your computer that indicates that there are processes running on your computer harddrive.

It is not a problem.

Power light flickering


The power light flickering is normal. Most pc power lights flicker to show it is operating. Also your light on you cd rom or dvd rom will flicker when you put a disk in it. Try it now - put a disk into your cd rom [ or dvd rom if you have that] and watch the power light flicker.

Pc wont boot up, instead a red light flickers.


Flickering LED means power supply is overloaded with something. It might be inside of the supply, but sometimes it is something else. Try that:
1. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except power supply and power button;
2. Disconnect all power connectors from all drives;
2. Remove any cards from the motherboard so all you have is power supply and motherboard with CPU and RAM, nothing else. You can keep connected the monitor and keyboard;
3. Press Power button. Will motherboard turn on normally?

If no - check electrolytic capacitors especially around the CPU, if some of them are "popped" replace them.
If yes - connect drives and cards one per time to localize the problem.
