    Exclamation HELP ME MY COMPUTER IS BUSTED!!!!

    So I have a shitty Dell Dimesion E521 that can barely play minecraft. Well just this morning my computer decided not to turn on. If you pressed the power button, it would glow yellow, then immediately shut off. I then decided to press the power button multiple times and then it turned on, but the light was shining yellow, not green. My monitor would not turn on and I was stuck. This has happened before but it was fixed. I don't remember what it was a long time ago.

    Does anyone know how to fix it? Dell Support is retarded and they make it difficult to follow the steps.

    Is it broke? Is the power supply failing? Is the motherboard failing?

    Please answer appropriately as this is important as the only other computer I have is 5 years of older then the newish Dell.

    probably motherboard ( aint sure but i had same problem with my comp some months ago and it was that )

    try calling dell again and follow steps carefully.

    then if that doesnt work then its 95% sure that its your motherboard

    Well I don't personally have a computer, I said Mac was shit to my parents but they still want to get it.. I'll just add Win7 to it so when it starts up you can choose whether you would like to go to MacOS or Win7OS.

    The only solution for Dell computers is to smash it with an hammer, then try to turn it on, should work.

    Dell sucks bra. :/
