Are you sure you downloaded and installed the correct BIOS patch? If you installed the wrong one, it will cause it to stop.

Disable dell startup splash screen to see RAID console

most likely, RAID is disabled. Restart the computer, tap F2 as soon as the computer starts until it takes you to the BIOS screen. Look on the Drives section and verify if your SATA or SATA OPERATIONS are set to RAID ON. Save the changes.

Afterwards, restart the computer and see if it works. Note, when it displays the Dell Splash screen, you may try to hit CTRL + i or CTRL + N to enter the RAID BIOS.

If none works, you can also visit and go to the Drivers and Downloads page. Enter your Service Tag or select your system model. Then check for an available update that you can download and install for the BIOS and Chipset of your computer.

Blinking yellow power led

check at the back of the tower you would find 4 LEDs(small lights) labeled ABCD in a row or you might have 1234 on the front panel. note the status of these LEDs when the problem occurs and check for the solution accordingly on the website.

would also suggest to disconnect all the devices (keyboard mouse printers etc.)next time the problem occurs and then try to start the computer
