    I have managed the install, its telling me there is a problem with the backplane +3.3v its running at a critical state.

    I have tried looking around on google but can not find much information out on it or what i need to repair it.

    Everything thing else on the server runs perfect.

    All help is appreciated.

    Thanks

Luz naranja parpadeante?


That depends on what is flashing orange. Please be more specific, and please post in English. In general, flashing orange lights on Dell servers mean something is wrong. Installing and running Dell OpenManage System Manager will usually tell you exactly what is wrong.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

Orange light flashing below the dell logo


This means something is not right. If you are running a Windows OS, you should have the Dell Server Manager installed. Go into this application and check what it says. The problem may be very minor, such as the cover not being completely closed, to something as severe as a failing hard disk.

Orange light


This sounds like your "check engine" light. Best bet is to take it to your mechanic where they should have the right diagnostic tools to find where the problem is. - Neil
