Question about Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
I have a dell dimension desktop. It won't turn on. I get a blinking yellow light on the power button
Open the tower//
check for any loose connection of the cord of Hard drive and power unit//
better option is take out the wires one-by-one and refix it//
if this does not work then probably the SMPS has gone bad and needs to be replaced..SMPS is the power unit which supplies power to all the component.
during all this process please alwaws make sure that when you put ur hand in the tower then the power cord should be out , otherwise you can get power shock.

Tips for a great answer:
A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.
A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data.
This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.
((A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly.
This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.))
A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
You should consider visiting Dell Support and downloading the manual for your
your Dell computer. So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them.
hope this helps
