Answers :

Make sure the 12v power connector is securely connected to the system board. If you open up your computer look at the end of the board that the memory modules are there is a 4 pin connector thats the 12 v Make sure thats plugged in and secure, If thats ok you have already did the removal of the memory and replaced them, take out any pci express cards and use your onboard video, if that don't work try one memory module at a time see if that works you already seem to be savoy enough to do that and try that, and if that does not work you may need a new power supply. You can check it but probally will be bad I have the same desktop and thats been a problem with these 5150 along with the mother board going out after the warranty expires. I sure Hope this helps you out,, Happy Holidays to you and yours. Hey If you need me to look anything else up let me know. Thanks again bear001

My Dell Dimension 5000 is stuck with a solid amber light on the power switch and solid amber light on the motherboard. Switch 'clicks' ok but light only goes out when power lead removed. No fan, no bleeps, no bootup, just solid lights. The 5000 doesn't have other LED lights to assist. The PC got into this state after local power cut, when power returned. I've changed psu today -- exact same condition. Any advice would be appreciated
