I've asked someone from our hardware staff to take a look here and see if they can add some input.

HI Chad, I see you posted while I was composing......

HI, One thing to look at your computer has four lights labeled "A," "B," "C," and "D" on the back panel. They will be horizontal and near the keyboard or USB ports.

Turn it on and look at them. They will be yellow or Green, Using this chart that Animal provided
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/adtshoot.htm#wp1054305 see what that tells you and also report here on what they show.

From the same Dell page:

Power Lights

The power button light located on the front of your computer illuminates and blinks or remains solid to indicate different states:

If the power light is green, the power status is good and the computer is functioning properly.

If the power light is green and the computer is not responding, see "Diagnostic Lights."

If the power light is blinking green, the computer is in standby mode. Press a key on the keyboard or move the mouse to resume normal operation.

If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board. See your Owners Manual for more information.

If the power light is steady amber, a device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed.

Remove and then reinstall the memory modules.

Remove and then reinstall any cards.

Remove and then reinstall the graphics card, if applicable.


Quite often the problem can be diagnosed between the 4 light son the back or the power light.

One other thing to do if you can. Please remove the side, Very easy there is a lever with a plastic cover sticking out the back that you push down. Then move the Green heat sink shield out of the way. You may have to pull it slightly to the side and then swing it out of the way. Then take pictures of the motherboard and attach them.

They did use a pretty good quality build on those motherboards but a picture never hurts.

Thanks
Roger
