Dell Dimension E510 will not turn on

\015 My computer will not turn on. There are no lights at all behind the power button. No fans come on when plugged in. The green light on the motherboard does turn on when plugged in. Could this be the PSU or something more?\015

Answers :

It could be.
\015\012When you switch on after it has been turned off for a while look at the fan on the PSU as you switch on.
\015\012If it spins or tries to spin for a very short time then I would indeed suspect the psu.
\015\012If however the psu fan does spin for longer and you can hear any beeps then that would be an indication of a different problem.
\015\012Should that be the case then check here.

Not far away from the green light that comes on, on the motherboard, is a "CMOS" battery that looks like a regular calculator battery. While the power is still connected to the motherboard and the little green light is on, but nothing else is on. Remove this CMOS battery than turn the power fully off, you may need to remove the power cord is there is no swith on the power supply. Wait at least 5 minutes and than replce the battery in it's proper location and revers the steps. Good Luck amigo

I have a dell dimension E510. When the computer boots up it runs fine for about 5 minutes, then the fan begins to speed up.

My Dell Dimension E510 is making a "whirring" noise. It whirls loudly when I turn it on, like something inside is struggling to get up to speed. The computer takes more time than usual to become operable and open programs. Then with the computer on, the "whirring" comes and goes, it is more quite, but more uneven. Sounds like it's going fast sometimes, then speeds up and back and forth. I've opened the computer and cleaned the dust out of it. That didn't help. HELP. VHS

So what could make "whirring" sounds in a computer? Motors. What has motors? Fans, Hard Disc Drives, Floppy Drives and CD/DVD ROM Drives. I can't think of anything else. It doesn't sound like a CD/DVD/Floppy drive because you would only hear the nois ... Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
