Having problems with your Dell Dimension E510 Dual Core 2.8 Ghz (847403171179) PC Desktop ?

Dell e510 won't make it to post

\015 My problem started with the blinking amber light that so many have had trouble with. Tried all the initial fixes recommended by various people on this site. Next, I installed another power supply and had the same results. Now after installing a new motherboard, I don't have the amber light, but the computer will not make it to post. It seems like it is starting to boot up and then quits before gettting to the video, because nothing comes up on the monitor. I've tested the hard drive in another computer, the video card, and even put a new processor in the board, but still nothing. Also I tried some ram from another computer that I know is good, but still nothing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

Unplug computer, disconnect all usb/monitor/internet, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop out the BIOS battery (looks like a big watch battery and use a small flathead screwdriver to depress the spring lock on one side), plug in computer, hold power button for about 20 seconds (must reset BIOS), let up on power button, wait 10 seconds and push power button. The computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stable (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

If this has worked you have proven that it's not the power supply (it turned on). If you purchased a non dell power supply, you might try this with the original one installed.

Go buy a new battery (CR2032 3 volt). Unplug computer, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop in new battery, plug in (you should notice the power button blinking amber again), hold power button until it stops blinking (about 20 sec....again must reset BIOS), wait 10 sec., push power button. the computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stabe (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

Now, close case, plug in all usb/monitor/internet/etc. Power up computer. You'll get an internal floppy drive error. Push F2 (maybe F1) to get into the BIOS settings and go to "drives" and turn off the internal floppy. Save and exit. The computer should boot properly now.

This seems to be a big problem with the e510, my theory is that this one small battery is the root of most of these failures (as these computers usually fail after 1-2 years), not the power supply or the motherboard (heck, when you replace the motherboard it comes with a new one of these batteries...a several hundred dollar piece of hardware, with a $5 battery that will actually fix it).
