Dell Inspiron 530 wouldn't start, - please help me fix it
February 6, 2012 at
This Inspiron 530 medium tower is a couple of year's old desktop. Everything was fine, running without any issue, until last week when the switch on/off button does not turn the computer on at all, nothing happens at all, only click sound. A couple of days later, the switch worked all on a sudden. Being worried, we didn't turn it off since then, but the power failur later turned the machine off again, and wouldn't start since then. I opened up, saw the inside orange light lit when power plug is connected, so is the backside green light, thereby, seems the motherboard is ok. opened the front switch area, tried to turn on with bare finger on the switch, it clicks but nothing happened. Is it now a simple switch problem to replace, or a power supply problem, or what; the mother board seems to me ok with those lights turn on. please help me solve this problem. Thanks for your help.
