Motherboard problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a dell dimension e521, when I turn the computer on there is only a solid amber light. I took out the power supply and tested the voltages. The power supply is normal. The CPU is not producing any heat. I have also removed the Ram moduales and put them back. The specs are Cpu:AMD athlon 64 3200+ Motherboard: dell. Can anyone tell me if this is the Motherboard or the CPU ?

This happened once with my old Dell Dimension 5150. If it's a solid amber light, it's probably the PSU. Luckily, the system was still under warranty and Dell was able to come and replace it. You should try calling Dell support and see what they have to say about it.
