Both of you could try going to control panel/add new hardware and follow it through. Most likely the second HD is still raw - not formatted -hence doesn't show because as far as windows is concerned it isn't there.

Try that first

Can't turn my computer on and i have a yellow blinking light on my dell dimension E510


Do you use a surge protector? If you do, try turning off the power supply to the surge protector and switch on again.
There are a number of causes for this problem, the most likely being a PSU problem or a motherboard fault/failure. To check the power from the PSU to the motherboard, you will need a multimeter to make sure enough power is going to the motherboard. Also check the motherboard closely to see if there is any signs of corrosion or blackened areas, which could be caused by overheating components. Check for leaky or burnt capacitors.

Reset memory


Perhaps you mean to "re-seat" the modules?
To do this, unplug the PC, push the power button for a moment to discharge any power left on the board.
Then open the side panel (on your Dell the side panel release is on rear-top of the unit; push the black knob towards the back and it will release the door).
find the ram modules, and push the clips (normally white or black) gently toward the board, and it will eject the module. Do the same on the other side of the module.
If you are trying to troubleshoot a non starting computer, re-seat both modules and re-test. You can also try one module at a time if that doesn't help.

If not,then in the boot order change to cd dvd then hdd,if you have two hdd make sure your primary is first.

Last,if you have a xp disc boot from that and do a delete partion and format the hdd.Then try win 7

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Dell dimension e510 won't turn on


Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.

2nd HDD


Check Computer Management / Disk Management. Windows on Windows XP, Probably the Drive needs formatting first and partitioning before it will visible on My Computer. By Default the new Hard Drive is "Unpartitioned / Unallocated". So acess disk Management to format and partition the Hard Drive.

To access the computer management and disk management and create and partition under disk management, Check Videos for guide :
