Question about Dell Dimension 9150 (DIM915MIN) PC Desktop

Dell Dimension 9150, Won't start, Ethernet flashing orange yellow

I know someone had a similar problem to this, I tried turning on my comp today, it wouldn't startup. Instead, the power button flashes orange every 3 seconds, and the back of the comp, where the Ethernet lead goes, flashes yellow and orange. Thing is, I never use the Ethernet, there is no lead attached. I tried someone elses advice, I took off the computer side panel, and removed the CMOS battery, and the computer power cable. I left removed for over 10 minutes, plugged everything back up, unfortunately the problem still remains. I can only assume the problem lies with the Ethernet connection. Although I have no idea what to do to fix it, as i have no ethernet lead connected in the first place. Any ideas on what I could do to fix the problem? Thanks in advance

    I fixed the problem, I simply removed the USB lead which sat next to the Ethernet cable, and it worked after a restart... :/

    In every dell system you have 1234 number light on the back, if you have any problem the light glow at the number. let me know what number light is glowing on the back side so it will become easier to identify the problem, can you let me know?

Dell dimension 5100 ethernet port flashing orange


If the port works, it should be steady yellow. Flashing means that your Ethernet circuit on your motherboard has a problem.

I can't find Ethernet Controler for Dimension 9150 Service Tag DB22PY81


You can find all drivers for your 9150 here.
The Intel driver for your built-in network card depends on your OS (WinXP or Vista).

(Your service tag might be outdated, so it doesn't work.)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My Dell Dimension desktop 9150 was running very slow so I shut down the computer. When I pressed the power on button I notice that it was flashing. I pressed the button even holding the power button in...


Hi,
the constant Green, states that the motherboard is getting Power.
The red/yellow would possibly suggest, that the ethernet port has a fault or possible corruption.
Solution:- remove the Power Lead from the Computer Case.
Remove side panel. take out any ethernet-Cable from the rear.
Locate the CMOS battery, round silver Battery on The motherboard.
For 10 seconds, this should reset The bios, to it,s original Default Settings. Replace Battery, side Panel. And power Lead.
You could also try This. Boot with Hard-drive power Cable Disconnected ( this will Eliminate HD Fault ) same for CD/DVD drive et,c.

The flashing amber is an error code. Dell Tech support will need to be called in order to troubleshoot as Dell does not publish it's codes. I know when my old E510 did this they started by replacing the psu, when this didn't correct the problem they sent me a new motherboard. Hope this helps.

Lights 3 &4 stay on.


Computer beeping at you is usually a problem with the video card or memory. Try re-seating both and see if you still have the same problem. If you do, individually remove each component and power on to test if the beeps persist.
