Question about Dell (E210882) Motherboard
About 1 week ago, when I tried to turn my computer on...power button just flashed orange ....I then called Dell support, we tried to fix this over the phone, but this could not be fixed, diagnosis from Dell doctor was to replace motherboard.....:(.
Unfortunately, I can only use computers not fix them therefore I need some advise as to how I can bring my Dell back to life... ?
Any help is much appreciated !
Hahaha are you serious? flicking that switch on the power supply is the best way to fry something. Usually your power supply but your motherboard and other parts are at risk too... Under NO circumstances do it!

It sounds as if the power is fluctuating or is not at the right
voltage, see if there is a red switch on the back of your computer
where the cable plugs in, if so switch it and see if that works. If not
then switch it back then try putting a new cmos battery in the
motherboard or test the one you have, it looks like a watch battery.

My first suggestion would be to completely remove the power from the PC. Wether you remove the cable form the back or switch of at the wall shouldnt make a differenence. Go out shopping for a while plug it back in and give it another go. Sometimes giving it time alone to itself can rectify a lot of issues.
If the pc is still under warranty try and get it looked at under the warranty agreement. If it is out of warranty you will probably need to get an IT store to look at it for you. I wouldnt be surprised if Dell has installed a special screw that requires a special screw driver bit to remove it.
