Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer (ddcwfa2_5) IntelPentium dual-core processor E2160 (1MB L2,1.80G ?
Exact Same Problem
\015 Have now been on Dell tech support five different times in one year for the same problem, each time assured by the rep -- after they update my BIOS each time -- that "the problem will never happen again." The power light glows amber, the fan powers up high for five seconds, shuts off for five, up for five, off for five, literally for hours. Unplugging everything, even power, for one minute, 5 mins. 30 mins. makes no difference. Occasionally, after several hours, it will simply power up on its own, no rhyme or reason. This was my fourth Dell computer -- it is my last. No wonder they are losing market share.\015
Wow heard they have bad power supplies , you may want to check into it as they overheat the cpu's and this is the cuase, Dell in my book is not a got brand however Hp would be a better choice for a computer.
