  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2009

    I can't get to any of the information on the hard drive, the clicking and flashing light will not stop after 5 minutes, as well as not being recognized by my computer.

There is a yellow light on top of the tower right next to the power button. Lately it has been constantly on and flickering. What does that mean?


it is probably a HDD light or hard disk drive light.no worries. this is normal when your computer is transferring information, which it does all the time when it is running. you may have installed some more software which is more information to transfer which would cause it to blink quicker and more frequently. it could also be a disk drive light which means you have a disk that is currently being read in the disk drive.

Playing game for 30 minutes. Playstation suddenly switches to standby. When I put it back on switches to green light for seconds then yellow light and then back to red (standby). Disk brand new, now stuck...


2 days ago i got the yellow light of death when the 2.50 update came out rendering my ps3 to a 500 dollar paperweight.
I contacted sony about my problem and my console is under warrenty so it would be fixed for free so it didn't bother me to awful bad
the are sending me a box right now but i have fixed the yellow lights on my ps3 myself and it works now without a hitch
What i did is i took my 120 gb hard drive out of my ps3, Slaved it to my cpu tower and did a full format of that drive
then i took my hard drive and put it back in my ps3 and it ask me for the system software 2.50 disk so i downloaded the 2.50 update off of the ps3 website installed it and boom my ps3 work like new
this worked for me so far and have been playing my console for 6 hours now with out a hitch
maybe this will work for some of u aswell

New computer tower motherboard(Intel D945GCPE), Processor(Intel Celeron 430 LGA775), memory, hard-drive(ATA), & dvd-rom(ATA). Got it all installed in new tower(ATX,I have green light on the motherboard...


First try to clear CMOS

Turn off the system and disconnect power cables

Locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard and take out the battery

Wait for about 15 minutes

Reconnect battery and try to turn it on.

If it remain same, disconnect power cables

Disconnect hard drive and CD/DVD drives

Try to turn on again.

Also check if the front panel connectors (Power SW, Reset, HDD connector) are properly connected.

I have an Acer X1700 desktop - 3 days old by the way. Runs Vista Home Premium. 1 day after arrival, pushed power button. Monitor light is blue, flashes the Acer logo, then says "no signal" and blue light...


I would get ahold of acer. It should be under warrenty. sounds like a hard drive issue to Me. Just because it is new doesn't mean it was right from the start. My neighbour had the same problem with his acer. I told him to but a dell or hp. good luck.

Installed an Upgrated Mother Brd,in my Hp Desktop Tower,but the power Switch receptacle in the New Mother Brd has 16 pns


You need to track the wires from the case front panel to thier locations: one will be your power switch, one your reset, one hard drive activity light, and one your power light. You want to note and label which light or switch they go to then go to the new motherboards manual and plan which wires need to go where.
the front panel switches : reset and power switch- these are momentary switches so it doesnt matter which way they go.
hard drive activity and power light- these should have a colored wire and a black or white. the colored wire will be your + side.

Computer not loading up strange symbol indicating some problem


That is the hard drive symbol. The noise is most likely the hard drive, and I would say that your hard drive has failed/crashed and needs to be replaced.
