While my computer is running the light on the frount is flashing orange. I thought it was always green before. Is there a problem


i removed the connector at "J5J3 pswrd."

this is the blue thing between the battery and the card slot.

i tried everything else such as new M/B battery. remove/change ram. take out extra card, etc.

I just fixed my dell dimension 3100 by doing this.

Dimension 3100 turns on the power button has a steady orange light there is also an orange light on motherboard cpu and power suplly fans working but wont bot up


Blinking amber (orange) indicates a problem with the power supply inside the computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light, this could indicate a problem with the power connections for the CPU on the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).

Dell 3100 no coming on


Did you checked whether the CPU / tower is turned on.. press some keys on your keyboard to make it active.

This might looks funny but it works all the time :)
