    Thanks for that



    thought it may be that, but when it re started it made me think it was not the power supply.

I had the same problem (turn 690 off, turn it back on, 1 & 3 and amber blinking and no turn on - turn 690 off, wait at least 8 hours, turn it on and it works). I acquired another working 690 and used its 750 W power supply - my original 750 W supply was bad. I attempted to troubleshoot it. I opened it up and there are two boards inside. There are three or four cables/ connectors linking the two boards. I had to unplug them to continue the process and, in the process, the supply started working and it has not failed since (I have successfully cycled power at least 30 times and, before the fix, it would fail on the first cycle every time). I believe that unplugging then reconnecting these connectors fixed it. I would caution anyone attempting to do this to be very careful but the fix is no cost and not difficult. These boards are packed into the box. Two tyraps need to be cut and replaced in the process. 750 Watts = 1 horsepower.

Your Power Supply has gone bad mate... known problem. You need to swap out the old power supply with a new one or maybe a working one (if you have another system)... the procedure is fairly clearly documented on the Dell Site n no Tags needed for that... :-)

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.
