4 yr old Vostro 460 will not power up.

Jump to solution

Soooo., called in and was put through a lengthy troubleshooting call at which point the Dell person sold me a new MOBO.  After installing it in a correct manner I attempt to start the system.  The fans spin for about a second and then nothing happens.  No front light at switch.  The power supply has a constant lit green led.  the small MOBO flea is lit solid amber/orange. I believe it has AUX Power printed above it.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This system was recently upgraded to windows 10.  I only have the original system Windows 7 disk.  ugh.., and ugh.,
