Computer Will Not Turn On

My computer will not boot. It turns on but the fans are going really fast and the light is a steady amber color. I have tried unplugging its main power source multiple times but it will not turn on. Please help.

Hi Michelelee,

We need the model number of your Dell desktop. Also please let me know if you are getting any beeps.

Re: Computer Will Not Turn On

I'd try pulling all the ram out of the motherboard. Then try starting the computer with no ram in it, you should hear a beep, then turn the computer off, you may have to force quit it. Now add one ram stick only and start the computer. If it does start up. Then add back one ram stick at a time and turn off until you get them all back in place.
