Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop

Blinking yellow power led

I have a similar problem to the one you responded to. When I press the power button to power up the power led then starts blinking yellow, but the computer does not power up. If you then wait some time - 10 to 30 minutes the blinking stops...hopefully! Then when you press the power button again it will power up and work fine. What is wrong and how do I fix?
Thank you

    No LED's indicate a problem and the Dell site doesn't help. Won't even accept an email from me as a customer!

    I have exactly this problem - thought it was connected to the XP Service Pack 3 update and re-formatted the disk and re-loaded Windows with service pack 2. Exactly the same!! Sometimes it boots if you pull out the USBs first but the problem is getting worse and this morning, I had to wait 20 mins until the blinking orange light on the switch on button stopped and then it re-booted staright away normally. My computer is just two years old - have re-seated all the cards / memory modules but just the same, as it will be if the problem is a failing power supply

    After about two year, the power button blinks slow yellow and the PC will not start unless the CMOS battery is removed and reinstalled. The PC then starts up fine. I get a "Previous fan failure" message", but both the power fan and the CPU cooling fans are running. The Dell site forum says technicians can access DSN #341244 and I likely need a new front I/O panel ($88), power supply ($77) and mother board ($140). Dell will sell them to me for $305 total so I might be better with a new PC. The front I/O panel is redundant to the rear inputs.

Check at the back of the tower you would find 4 LEDs(small lights) labeled ABCD in a row or you might have 1234 on the front panel. note the status of these LEDs when the problem occurs and check for the solution accordingly on the support.dell. website.

would also suggest to disconnect all the devices (keyboard mouse printers etc.)next time the problem occurs and then try to start the computer

E5 means cartridges error - to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 seconds and then release it.

(DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light

4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
