    This problem is almost certainly a faulty Power Supply and or a motherboard failure,fiddling with keys will not resolve it

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 :)

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).

My Dell Optiplex 620 started rebooting itself every time Windows started up and then it just went dead. I push the 'ON' button on the front of the computer and nothing happens. I have no lights, no fan,...


I would suspect that the power supply has gone bad and has to be replaced. A simple task, really. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_b10486e133b24d6ca38e4d39d69b43a1(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_ee2e8b71ff554752b93d52dd01ec84ba(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Computer will not turn on at all. Dell Dimension 5100 desktop


I would unplug the power supply from the motherboard, wait a little while and then plug it back in.
Try to power everything back up and it should come up.

I am assuming you are getting a light on the motherboard that indicates power is being supplied?

If you reformatted the hard drive, you have erased everything. If you have restore or backup disks use them now.
