Question about Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop
Hi we can't get our computer to turn on, When we do the amber light stays on and the fan runs..If we keep trying sometimes it will go green and turn on and everything seems fine, but if we restart or turn off it goes to amber light.
1st thing, disconnect everything but keyboard mouse and monitor, see if anything changes.
If the issue persists, ensure that all power and card connections for the motherboard are tight and secure. If you've added RAM or other parts, remove them. Reseat the RAM in the motherboard that came from Dell.
If none of those ideas have any effect on the issue, replace the motherboard.
