Make sure that the ram is seated well, and check to see if there are any cards that are loose. Also check to see if your power source in properly connected, and secure.

My Acer 5536 shows blue light on switch, orange and blue small lights but will not switch on further and screen is blank. John


Does it beep? Do you have the fans spinning? If it is a notebook, can you connect an external monitor and check if you get picture on it?

I am looking for a schematic for a Dell Optiplex GX280 power supply. The supply is model HP-U2106F3.


I just replaced my GX280 power supply (mini-tower) with the following 400W for $30.

The only place I can think you will find an actual schematic for the PSU is from the manufacturer.

Sounds like the power supply is not compatible with the motherboard. If the motherboard can't support a 400 watt powers supply you will either get a blinking light or nothing at all. Those optiplex's use a proprietory power supply because of the pin connectors and how a power supply is supposed to fit in there. If you can't find a 400 watt power supply that fits then get a hold of Dell and see if they sell one for that computer.

Hi

Thank you for your query

It would seem you have a possible DCf jack problem, causing the mentioned issues

If the DC jack is faulty it can cause the problems mentioned above.

I would recommend that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for them to replace it

I hope this has been useful

Dell Optiplex GX280 Power switch flashes white light rapidly system will not turn on Fans do not start


Outlet - unplug the power cable and put it on an outlet on its own Power Cord - make sure you remove the power cable from the back and plug it back in to make sure you have a good connection. things that cause this blinking light: Power Supply -open system and follow cables to make sure its connected well to each part. I/O Panel - this is where the power button is at . just open the system and follow it behind the power button.the flat cable going to the mother board , disconnect it. plug the power cable to the wall and if the system starts up then the power supply is good and the the cable that you just disconnected is bad.

If it still doesn't power up remove
memory
hard drive
dvd/cd drive
and start the system.
no luck then it is the systemboard.

Flashing orange light on front of my dell 5150 desktop, will not turn on, even after unplugging for one hour. when plugged back in, flashes orange, no fan, no power. JK


So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button.
Try to boot the pc.

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker, put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

Could be bad ram, motherboard, cpu, powersupply, videocard.

Mac Ibook Power supply problem


On Mac iBooks the orange light comes on when it charges the battery. Once the battery is charged it turns green. Im guessing the other powersupply was aftermarket or broken. EIther way, if it starts out green - recognizes the battery isnt full - turns orange for a while - then turns green when the battery is full, then the computer and powersupply are working perfectly. Enjoy your iBook!

Dell GX270 SFF 160Watt PSU - no start at low temperatures


You're on the right track... failing capacitors were a real issue for these Dell PCs (and others), in fact I would be surprised if there wasn't at least one failing capacitor on the motherboard as well.

Not an extremely difficult task though it requires some electronics skill, suitable equipment & appropriate replacement components, try brands like (but not limited to) Rubycon, Panasonic, Sanyo & SamXon you're looking for Low ESR rated capacitors of equal voltage rating & capacitance.

Additionally 10v capacitors can be replaced by 6.3v items as you're only looking at 12v, 3.3v & 5v being produced within the PSU.

Orange light on instead of green light..also 3 and 4 number light up


When I first started repairing things a mentor said always unplug anything you are working on. I found this to be a number one rule. You just don't know what still has power even though it says it's off. I've made this mistake too by not checking.
Okay. So...
Hopefully the power supply is just shutting down due to a drain on it's voltage and will be okay. Take out whatever you tried to install. Try it again. Take out anything not necessary to boot your computer. You'll need the video card if not integrated. If you have a bootable floppy, Unplug the hard drive. See if you get to a screen where you can go into the bios setup mode. You also might want to write down where things go back. This is especially if doing this with little sleep. Let me know..'ask me.'
