A No boot device means that the system could not find a DRIVE in its boot order with a active partition or boot record. This happends when you get a virus or the hard drive in the system has crashed or you have something in the cd-rom drive and the cd rom drive was first on the boot order and did not detect a boot record.

1. Make sure there is nothing in the cd-rom drive
2. check your hard drive do you hear noises like clicking etc?
3. Find your restore disk or your windows operating system installtion disk put that in your cd rom drive reboot and that will start up the recovery process.

If you got a bad hard drive this will indeed need a new one and from what it sounds like from you , you might not have the tech know how to do this so I would refer you to best buy, or any computer repair shop.

Thanks and please do be considerate when passing threw fixya.com to leave postive feedback and ratings for all experts involved in helping you today.

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Dell E510 has a solid amber light, no light codes or sound codes. Unit powers up but will not boot. I unplugged and replugged all the wires to no avail. Does anyone have a clue as to why?


Contact dell technical support for a replacement motherboard. If I remember correctly this model had a recall due to faulty capicitors and should be replaced even if you are not under the service agreement still.

Computer won't turn on


A flashing yellow power LED is an indication of a failure in the power supply. If under warranty, Dell should be replacing it. If out of warranty, then a 400/450 Watt ATX power supply should resolve the issue.
