Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail. Enough power to light lights, but not enough to even spin fans, much less turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.
3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

(For example, the Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 can use up to 65 Watts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_microprocessors#.22Allendale.22.2C_.22Conroe.22_.2865_nm.29

Solution is to replace the power supply.
Need help with replacing just post in a Comment.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

When turning on the power light is yellow and laptop wont launch - was fine last night and i have turned everything off


Sounds as if the power unit may be faulty or maybe not plugged in.

Usually with a yellow power light this is an indication that the battery needs charging.

Wont turn on, nothing.... Power supply is good


Replace the power-cord.

Wait until midnight, and turn out all the lights in the room, so that's dark in your computer room.

Turn on the monitor, and see if you get any light and/or any lamps (green? yellow? red?)

Try a different monitor attached to your computer.

Try your monitor on a different computer.

When i turn the power on the green power supply light goes out and doesnt turn onand the computer wont turn on


Follow these:
  1. Unplug the computer.
  2. Disconnect the power supply from the motherboard and all other accessories.
  3. Replug the power supply.
  4. Connect the green wire (PSON) of the power supply by way of a jumper wire to any black wire (ground).
  5. The power supply should turn on with its fan. If not, it is defective and should be replaced.
  6. Check the ATX12V connector of your motherboard. It is were you removed the 4-wire, 2 yellow and 2 black, connector of the power supply. Check the continuity of the yellow wires to the black ones. It should be open, otherwise it is shorted and your processor is defective and should be replaced.

Having the yellow flashing light


Sounds like maybe a power surge killed the TV. If it is newer, try contacting the Manufacturer for warranty repairs.

Dell pc dimensio 5150 wont boot up


If the power light is blinking amber - The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (where power cord goes into unit).
Also try simply unplugging the unit from the wall outlet for a minute then plug it back in and boot it up.
