And when you turn on the pc can you here any bleeps. Also i know it sounds silly but please check on all of your cable and make sure the all in properly.... Tony A

Packard bell ipro yellow flashing light


Huh! Sounds like a power issue. Unplug, try cleaning out the guts in case something got in there, and retry, and again with a spare power supply if things are still bad. It would help to know whether something other than the power supply's clicking, I suppose....

Dell computer monitor wont come on when I turn


When you turn on most dell monitors they come on with a yellow light, then turn green when the monitor and video source synch. If your light is not turning from yellow to green, your monitor is either dead or not getting a signal from the video source it's plugged into. Verify in your BIOS settings that you have selected to output video through an installed card and not from the motherboard source. If the BIOS settings are correct, your monitor has died. If the light is turning green after you turn the computer on, press the menu button on the monitor and adjust the brightness/contrast until you have a picture. If you don't see anything when the menu button is pressed, then again your monitor is likely dead.

My tower has power but won't come on


first guess is the motherboard is bad

a few things you can try:

unhook the monitor from the computer and test it on another computer. If the monitor works then its most likely the motherboard.

leave the computer unplugged for a few hours then plug it back up and give it another try just in case it overheated.

have the computers power supply tested as a bad power supply can cause all sorts of issues.

other than that you are down to a new motherboard and or a new computer.

Yellow tint on screen


Hello mac71ncheese,

Sometime it's the simple things that go wrong. Have you tried to unplug the monitor from the back of the computer and look to see if their are any of the prong's bent. If so get a screw driver and make it straight up again. Or if they're not bent, just try and reset the plug back into the computer, all they while the computer is on is fine. Sometimes when the cables come loose they will be yellowish, or greenish or just red. It's worth a try!

Good Luck, and don't forget to leave a rating,

Thanks Mark

Hp pavilion a705w Light flashed in front and back on and off


Try a different monitor with your PC. If it does the same thing then you know the problem is with your PC. Also connect your PC to a different monitor. If it works OK then your monitor is bad. Does it beep at startup? Describe beep codes and someone on this website will decipher them for you. This might help to diagnose the problem.
