Generally a no post, since the system will not stay on, you simplify the system configuration by removing all external connections except power, then see if the system will stay on. If it does, add items back one at a time till you ID the issue.
If no change with external items disconnected, then issue is internal. remove any expansion cards and try again, if issue resolved, the add one at a time to isolate fault. If still no go, try ram modules individually. if still no go, disconnect power to all drives, see if system will stay running with drives disconnected. if still no go, then it is either the power supply or the motherboard. replace the power supply 1st since it is cheapest to replace

it sounds like your motherboard is shutting itself off to protect itself from overheating or some other system failure. you should verify all your fans are running at the correct speed. if it seems like everything is running fine, you can probably turn that off in bios. obviously if there is something wrong with the fans, then you need to replace them. Another options is maybe the processor is getting too hot which is why it's shutting down. open the case and remove the heat sync from the board so you can see the processor. clean the thermal paste off the processor and apply a new generous layer. put the heat sync back on and then try and restart. make sure before you do ANY of this you unplug the computer! good luck and let me know if it works!

Push power button and the power light turns amber and lights up then shuts off. the light in back of the computer is light green and it starts to turn on then dies


The fact that ity is trying to start and shuts off after ..it seams that it is the CPU fan to blame ...If the fan fails to start the CPU will turn the computer down instantly due to the temperature limit ..(in 1 or 2 sec ) ..
so ...open it up ..and see if the fan is spinning ...on start ..and if it is not ...check the connection with the board or replace it ..
(by the way ..this may also be a CPU failure ..and need another one ) ..

Dell XPS400 No Start!!


If you fan isn't turning like it should, it is definitely a power supply issue. Go out and purchase a power supply with 250-300 watts...thats a good standard wattage!!

Dell loptop wont turn on


take out ur batteries, clean the terminals with spirit or light alcohol, then re-insert it. better u use direct power supply but be sure to check that the power is beig supplied and the terminals/sockets are cleaned.
did this helped u. if not, tell me, when u push the power on button of ur notebook, does anything happens, like the fans start spinning or light went on. does the screen turn on or does something appears on the screen?
if nothing is happenng after pressing the power button, then this is a clear case of problem with ur power recieving section of the notebook. go to your pc dealer.

Dell Latitude C510/610 wont turn on


I have more of a suspicion of the CPU fan than the hard drive, right now. If a hard drive goes bad, the system will wake up, go through it's POST (Power On Self Test), and then tell you there's an issue with the hard drive. If the CPU fan goes bad, the system turns on, sees an RPM of 0 on the fan, then turns back off. That hypothesis also fits in with the slowness you were seeing. If a CPU starts to overheat (because the fan isn't running well), it will start to throttle the clock speed down in an attempt to produce less heat.
Unfortunately, it sounds like your laptop may be in need of a professional repair facility.
