Question about Dell (8N816) Motherboard
My Dell tower turns on with the power button's light as yellow . The fan runs then, after a couple minutes, Stops.

Ordinarily yellow light indicates ACPI standby. On some Dell and HP motherboards the same light also indicates a CPU failure, usually due to overvoltage or overheating.
Turn the PC completely off (unplug from the wall socket). Open the side, so you can see the motherboard with CPU and heat block. Best if you wait some ten-twenty minutes. Plug the power cable and power on the PC. Does it turn on, and does the CPU fan rotate correctly? If the PC turns on, and the fan doesn't, you have a busted fan which needs replacing.
If this doesn't solve the issue, describe exactly how the error happened. Is it a new PC, a PC which already worked and stopped doing so, a DIY assembled machine? Does it never turn on, or does it sometime do?
