Power light on inspiron alternates white/ amber. battery 100%


If the power light is blinking amber, it means the computer is receiving electrical power, but a device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed. You may have to remove and then reinstall the memory modules.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

When connected to AC adapter the amber light for battery doesnt change to blue even after full charge.


Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
battery will probably needs to be replaced, since it's not charging fully.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

MY SONY LAPTOP WONT BOOT


Hi,

The flashing amber light means the screen is in power save mode. Since you are not seeing a "No Video Signal" things are looking up.

You want to use the menu buttons on your screen to navigate through and locate the power save time out settings. Its best to set it for 'never'.

If that makes the change a fix, let me know, I'll guide you through the settings on your desktop display to control the display time out.

Regards,
Worldvet

Dell SX260...Wont Boot...Power Button Flashing Amber....grrrr!


Try these (un order of degree of difficulty) 1. Try replacing the battery on the system board. it is  typically a CR2032 button-style battery. This helps if the computer has been off for a long time.  2. Make sure all dust has been blown or vacuumed out of the computer. 3. Check to see if the USB pins are bent inside the connector on the back and the front of the computer. Straighten if possible. 4. Remove add-in cards, fans, shrouds, and heatsinks, then check the system board for leaky or mushroomed capacitors. If you would like, this may also be a good time to see if the processor is seated correctly or possibly short-circuited (burned black on the bottom, burnt or missing pins, etc). If it is any of these, you may need a new system board (motherboard) 5. It may be that you need a new power supply. Do your best to make sure that it will fit your computer case and have all the power connectors you need; they are not created equal.
