Amber light flashing on drive on compaq dl585

I have an amber light flashing on one of the drives, there are three all together, in my server. Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 update 6 and I don't see anything in /var/log/messages or dmesg that would indicate a problem.

Is there anything else I can do to troubleshoot this problem?

Dell Power Edge 2900 - amber and Red A light on tape Drive


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. May also be a defective card inserted into your motherboard. Try isolating the problem by removing all components until you just have motherboard and power supply and see if it turns on.

Fujitsu econel 100, server wont boot after trying many things i removed memory chips one by one and finally the server booted so i suspect it as faulty memory chip ok I managed to login and tinker around...


See if your fans and drives are spinning up fast enough, perhaps image a fresh drive if you can; certainly it's time to resolve BIOS state issues from discombobulating the DDR.
Er, how many DIMMs are in there now? 1? Is it good?

HP Laptop(Compaq nx6310) Lights are blinking


You did not specify if you are talking about the lights below the screen or the ones at the front of the palm rest.
Have a look at pages 1-2 to 1-5 in the HP support manual (link).
The description might help you.

It seems to me that you are talking about the battery light (which is amber when the battery is charging) and the light for the drive (which is blinking when the hard drive or optical (CD/DVD) drive is in use.)

Just as a side note: if your hard drive light is constantly blinking, although the CD/DVD drive is empty AND you are not saving or accessing data - this could be a caused by not having enough RAM installed. In this case, the excessive memory has to be written to your hard drive, which could result in excessive blinking of that light.

Amber light


If the flashing amber light doesn't go away, you've got a drive telling you it doesn't feel very well and should be replaced. This is covered in the pre-failure warranty and just place a call to Service to get it replaced.
