I do not know which step caused the LIGHT but n=now the co[uter is working. I disconnected the mouse, plugged the CPU back in and it started like a charm. A loop for Auto repair will start but fix nothing. I am a former Network Admin and I spent 3 hours reinstalling, pulling the jumper on the system board, etc., etc.
Its difficult for techs to replicate this cause they 'know' when its the right time to hit the right key to enter the bios .. 0 Message Accepted Solution by:Razzmataz73 Adv Reply April 12th, 2011 #7 erikzon View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message First Cup of Ubuntu Join Date Apr 2011 Beans 1 Re: Boot from USB on Dell Dell Dimension E521 Error Lights 3 And 4 I have a Dell Dimension 5100.

Hope that's not the case for others here.

I took the CPU out and put it back and now the HD light comes on and stays green, but the main power button light stays amber. Expansion cards include modems, sound cards, video cards, controller cards, or other cards plugged into PCI, ISA, PCI-E or AGP slots on the system board (motherboard).
Now the thing won't even show the orange blinking light, I get nothing when I press the power button. When the PC is switched on do any of the keyboard indicators flash (Caps/Num Lock for example)?

Nice to have all this info over the Internet. After reading several other sites was getting very bummed out thinking I would just give up on this comp rather than dump more money into it.

Orange blinking lights. The underlying cause might be a dead bios battery. Is it a key on the keyboard? this contact form Had this SAME problem with my HP Media computer.
Do you have phone support? I left to go to a friend's house during a cold winter night. Remove the power cable, waited till green led on motherboard was off 2. Started removing USB devices… mouse, keyboard, backup drive: still blinky.
The board reset when I removed the battery. the gold room View Public Profile Visit the gold room's homepage! I go it up and going and installed service pack 3, all seems to be good except for the initial black screen. Replaced the CMOS battery and everything started working again.
