    Hi,

    My name is Frederic. My website is fredericwong.com.

    I have exactly the same issue with Compaq Evo D510 Small Form Factor. My PC also just shut down randomly. Now when I try to power up the power light flashed green for a second and then flashes red, all the lights on the board on. I am trying the same solution, but I don't know where the CMOS battery is on my board to find the jumper. Can anyone tell me how to find it?
    Regards,
    /Fred

Could be the power supply. Try unplugging the internal hardisk power, the internal cd power and anything else that is connected internally apart from the motherboard power supply. This may reduce the load enough to allow the motherboard to be powered.
As power supplies age, internal electrolytic capacitors dry out and can no longer store sufficient charge to provide power. This usually affects the higher voltage rails more, so USB devices can still get power from the 5V rail.
Try a working power supply from another computer if you can or buy a replacement to fit your case.

Charger faulty or Motherboard problem.
You can check the power supply of the charger by measuring the DC voltage at the DC jack with a multimeter set to DC volts (red probe on the inner of the jack, black probe on the outer of the jack, should measure 18-20 volts.

Also check the security of the jack in the DC port, make sure it is not loose

When I press the power switch, the green light comes on for about 2 seconds then it starts flashing red.


I'm afraid you need a new Power Supplies Unit. Just try an old trick first. Remove power cord from the back of PC. Press power button and keep it pressed for good 30 seconds. Then reconnect power cord and try to start as normal. If this don't work I'm afraid your PSU is dead. Good Luck

Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
