Question about Dell Dimension E520 PC Desktop
TRIED CMOS LINK AND BATTERY REMOVAL BUT STILL RECEIVE SYSTEM PASSWORD REQUIRED
Posted by Anonymous on
What can cause this error?
Well, this is the problem since quite a variety of problems can trigger the error.
1: the bios can be malfunctioning (a bios reset or flash can give a solution)
2: the cpu can be malfunctioning (this requires a new cpu)
3: the cpu socket can be failing (this requires a new mb)
4: the problem can be with bad usb sockets
5: even a bad uplink to a usb hub can cause this error to appear.
Did you change your monitor lately? I would chase down the USB things first...that and the monitor seem to trip the trigger...
Hope this get you started- I think you were right on target with the flash of the BIOS-try it again using the BIOS flash downloaded from the dell site...and to run the chipset again...it just might
Good luck my friend, hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you kindly

SOURCE: Yellow light on the power
A solid orblinking Amber power button indicates a voltage problem. This can be caused bya defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure thatnothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, videocard, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables toCD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
