I have Dell Dimension 5150 that was purchased in Dec. 2005. I have Windows XP operating system. The switch that turns the computer on starts blinking (yellow / orange) when turned on and stopped right there and would not start.

If you can help in any way, please do.
Thanks.

When did this start? Did you shut it off correctly before the problem? Possible power failure? My old computer used to do that. I would unplug it for 5 minutes, then replug it in and hit the power button. It usually started for some reason, also you might want to check the battery if its from 05. It could also be your hard drive, not even moving to boot it up, just shutting off. Is there a beep or anything before it shuts off, My would beep once and then shut off when my hard drive went.
