    my dell dimension 5100 doesn't power on, no POST, no beeps, just the green led is lit on the motheboard

    Dimension 5100 - no power up, green light on motherboard(?) is lit. Power supply/strip is OK as monitor, speakers and printer are on.



    Events immediately preceding: Working on a Word file, left to take shower, came back to find documents closed, upon opening Word showed recovered file, saved it, closed file, closed Word, attempted to Shut Down computer but unable - message requested that all Windows apps be closed first - none were open, waited 5 min, same thing, so then turned power strip off and on, turned on computer, remember seeing typical start-up stuff on monitor, turned away, when turned back to computer it was off. Cannot power up since.

The disk might not have a working OS on it.

It you have successfully run the disk utility the disk probably in full working order. I think that the OS on the disk is either missing, corrupt or not compatible with the computer you are running it on.

Hard drive


It means that your HDD is damage, no good. Need to get another one and reformat your computer.
The way to troubleshoot any computer that won't turn on is checking the power supply fan to see if it does anything when pressing the power button. If you see that the fan try to start but stall, then there is a bad hardware install. What I do is take all the hardware out and start the troubleshooting by installing the hardware one at a time. When the computer stop responding after installing one of the hardware, then it means that this hardware is bad. You already troubleshoot the computer by installing the HDD and seeing that the computer won't start.
