Question about Acer Veriton M421G Minitower Desktop 320GB (PSV8903004)

Open Question

Our Acer Veriton M421 G minitowers have a blinking light just above the power button. This light is very annoying and can cause seizures in students especially since we have 40 computers going at the same time. How do you stop this light from blinking?

SOURCE: Acer Veriton 3900 Pro - I have a green light on

If your computer no beep when starting just check the videocard and RAM or memory inside and remove it then clean with the pencil eraser or rubber in the pin and insert back again then try to power on your computer. If did not solve the problem just check your monitor if did not have a problem. But if your computer have a one beep when starting it means no problem on your computer. The problem is in your monitor it could be have a damage.

SOURCE: I have a acer veriton


I have an Acer L410 that is having the same issues. I get the power light but it will not boot. I hear that the hard drive is spinning so this is something that is good as well. Also I placed the hard drive into another Acer computer and it started up the other pc just fine. So thie is what fixed this issue. " I went out and bought a battery to replace the one on the motherboard it is a CR2032 3volt round battery that I got at Walgreens for 5 bucks. I hope this helps you out and I hope it saves others from spending too much to correct this issue. If you could please visit my channel on youtube to give thanks for my assistance, its under Kenzilla73 "

Acer Veriton M498g - ui3540c won't start

Need more info, Give as much detail as you can. What happens when you push the on/off button? Fan spin? LED's Blink? Any thing on the screen? Sound? Does the computer try to start and a second later shut down? Check the power cord, check the AC outlet? Is it on a UPS? Try AC outlet? Can you get to BIOS or Boot Menu? ETC.

Optiplex 755 showing orange colour light on power button.. how can i fix this problem

A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Should an ACER 5900 veriton, processor cooling fan, vary in speed ?

Yes all computer fans will vary their speed in order to conserve power. They will speed up when the processor is being used as it generates more heat and needs to be cooled more but if the tower is inactive the fan will slow as it does not need as much cooling.
