Dimension E521 , not working only orange light

Hello ,

my dimension E521 will not start up anymore. System gives an orange light and the fan is blowing.


Anyone tips on how i can get this pc working again?

System failed after normal use. PC was logged off and when I tried to turn it on few days later it only gave the orange light and a blowing fan.

Could be bad hard drive but more likely is Bad Power Supply.


STEP: Check the Power Light on the Computer

Additional Information

The power button light is located on the front of the computer case (not the monitor). Refer to Figure 1 for the possible power button patterns. The amber (yellow) and green states can be on solid, or can be flashing.
