Helloi am having problem with dell t5400 presionwhen i start my pc and show my desktop few minutesautomatically turn off and orange light blinking do you tell me what the problem with My t5400 precisi


The only blinking orange light is located on the Network RJ45 connection

If you're talking about the Power light on the Front panel:

If the Power light is blinking green the computer is in a sleep state: The computer is in standby mode. Press a key on the keyboard, move the mouse, or press the power button to resume normal operation.

If the Power light is blinking amber indicates that an internal power problem might exist; The computer is receiving electrical
power, but an internal power problem may exist.
Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
Ensure that all components and cables are properly installed and securely connected to the system board.

My desktop has an orange light no beep sounds when starting it won't boot up the back where ethernet plug goes is orange too the fan makes a burning smell also


Orange light usually means the harddrive or computer is processing and loading, But it can also mean that there is a problem with the hard drive. Start your computer and wait. If you see orange light it means its working to boot up, it might take a while, you might see your screen black for a while but eventually will work.

To fix this problem you need to upgrade more hard drive space, RAM memory and processor speed

Nowadays a computer should have a minimum of 2GB of RAM memory, at least 120GB of Space, and about 2.0Ghz of processing speed.

You can also buy great refurbished computers which are cheaper. Most of them come with 4GB of RAM memory, 250GB HD Space and 2.5Ghz processing speed.

Amber light that looks like a battery sign is blinking on & off on the front panel


Hi,

A blinking amber Pwer light indicates that there is something wrong with the power. You might check the following:

Make sure the AC switch is in the correct position. (115-US)

Are you getting any fan action or noise?

Is the green motherboard LED ON?

Make sure all you MB connections are secure.

Check (or have someone check) your power supply outputs.

And for reference, here is a link to your computer's Service manual:

My dell optiplex 170l does not display when i power it on. all it does is a blinking orange light on the front panel of the system unit. this light continue to blink on and on


The amber Power generally means PSU issues of one sort or another. (Dirty / Dusty machine)

Using canned air blowing out the PSU and case area has fixed several occurances of this issue.

Power lite blinking


The power light stays on when you start a computer. If it is the hard disk that works, it blinks once in a while. There may be a misconnection of the wires in the front panel of your desktop. You can check by seeing to it that the wires match those in the mainboard of your computer. Consult your computer mainboard manual for the location of the corresponding terminals for your front wires (e.g. hard disk wire into the corresponding hard disk terminal in the mainboard).
