Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop ?

Blinking yellow power led

\015 I have a similar problem to the one you responded to. When I press the power button to power up the power led then starts blinking yellow, but the computer does not power up. If you then wait some time - 10 to 30 minutes the blinking stops...hopefully! Then when you press the power button again it will power up and work fine. What is wrong and how do I fix?\015\012Thank you\015
