Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
Have the samw problem - computer worked yesterday, went to turn it on this morning and it won't start. The green light is on on the motherboard. I've checked all of the connections, everything seems to be fine.
How did you determine your motherboard was bad?
First disconnecting the power cord and re-seat all connections (Keyboard, Mouse espercially). Connect up the power cord and try powering the PC.
To help you troubleshoot a problem, Dell Dimension 5100 has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel. When the computer starts normally, the lights flash. After the computer starts, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions, the color and sequence of the lights identify the problem.
If the computer failed to start up check the diagnostic lights color and sequence and Check the link below for more info (Assuming you have another system that can access internet)
Alternatively, contact Dell Support with the diagnostic lights color and sequence to raise a service call if the system if under warranty.
