My dell demention 5150 has like a yellow/amber led light flashe green then goes back. wont even load on my moniter


Your system has failed to POST. It sounds like it may be the PSU. If you decide to open the computer, check if any of the capacitors are leaking or vented. Badbaps.net may be able to help you with this.

Wont switch on has power to switch dell dimension 5150


Hi,
As you are syaing there is green light in on the power button on the tower. The problem could be caused with any on the internal components inside the computer. Do you see and diagnostics lights that come on in the front of the tower like 1,2,3,4. If any of those lights are on , then one of the components inside the computer is bad.
For step by step instructions on how to isolate the issue refer to the following link

My Dimension 5150 box will not turn on! Just blinks, looks like an orange light. Monitor comes on then goes off to orange...


- disconnect the power cable of the box from the back of the tower and press and hold down the power button for 10 seconds (remaining power will be depleted).
- Now try using a different wall outlet.
- Check the diagnostic lights to see if the specific problem is identified (the computer has four diagnostic lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4" on the front panel). Also, see "Power Problems" in your computer Owner's Manual and/or Service Manual.

Flashing orange light on power button of Dell Dimension 5150 ...


If you experience the dreaded blinking orange power light, make sure to check your motherboard for blown capacitors as well as corrosion on the motherboard. Looks like the photo below.... if you see this then a replacement motherboard is needed.

Dell Dimension 5150 automatically turns off


That flashing amber light is usually a sign the power supply is failed or is failing. I would suspect the power supply is the problem in yours. It is the better of the two problems connected with the flashing amber light..the other is motherboard is failing. Arrrr!
hope this helps (it takes a standard- oh say 350 watt 20-24 pin power supply unit.)
Hope an answer helps.
Please leave rating, thankyou
