Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

Power button flashes yellow and will not power up.

\015 We have just set up my son's computer again. It has been turned off for about 3 weeks. It was working perfectly before but now when we press the power button it flashes yellow and will not power up. It is a Dell Dimension.\015

Answers :

Try a different know good working power supply and only hook up the main power connector to the motherboard as well as the p4 connector. If you get power then you know that the original power supply is bad.

If you try another known good working power supply and you get the same yellow light then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
