Hello, Travis.

First, check to see if there is dust in the CPU, especially around the fan. Remove the cover (take all safety precautions). Remove all dust with a computer vac.

With the cover still off, power on your system. See if the fan spins. There are often two fans. Check which fan is not spinning.

If not the fan, hold the power button in for several seconds to discharge the residue power.

Remove all the PCI cards, the video card [if applicable], memory, all peripherals, disconnect the data and power cables to all the drives. Check that the front panel cable is connected to motherboard. With nothing else connected to the system, reconnect the power cable and power the system on.

If you do not get any beep codes or diagnostic lights on the back panel, then it would appear that the motherboard has died.

Hope this helps.

Flashing green light next to the power supply -_-


If the clicking sound is coming directly from the power supply, it could mean any number of things, including a faulty power supply.

If you can open the case cover, check inside for dust buildup. (Note: Make sure the computer is unplugged from the AC power source before doing this!) Try using canned air to blow dust buildup off any heat sinks and fan assemblies you see inside the computer, this includes the power supply as well. A good, general dusting of the backs of drives is also a good idea. Do not tilt or invert the canned air while you are using it, or propellant could be sprayed onto the components!

After cleaning out the PC, put the cover back on, plug the unit in and see if there's any improvement. If not, without testing individual components it would be difficult to troubleshoot your problem. A trained service technician's physical assessment would be a solid next step.

Flasing red light


The flashing red indicates that either the fileter cover or the lamp cover is not installed correctly. If both are installed properly and secured, the unit will require service.

Error 5100


Hello! Try this:
1. Unplug the power cord

2. While pressing the ON button, plug the power cord back in.
The power light should flash an orange/yellow color.
Continue pressing the ON button, and press the RESUME button 4 times. The light changes every time you press it.

3. Release both buttons, and restart the printer.

The printer should now stop blinking and operate as usual.
I hope this works for you. OMS

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?

No power, power supply & motherboard green light blinking


I had the same exact problem for the same exact reason. Plug the power cable into the back. Open up the side of the case and unplug all the wires that the power supply plugs into. The motherboard, harddrive, cd & dvd drives, everything. wait about 10 minutes and plug them back in, plugging the BIG cable that connects to the motherboard back in LAST. This will make the light go from blinking to solid. I think it is a safety? to protect the motherboard from damage.
