Steady orange light above the battery looking symbol

I have a emachines c2280 desktop. This morning when i went to log on the screen saver was frozen. So I restarted it and well the screen went black and the tower did nothing except the light above the battery symbol turned oragne and stayed that way. It uses windows Xp. Everytime i try to restart it, the light turns orange and no abient noise is made( that is regularly heard, i.e. start up of the dvd/cd drive). the monitor once in a while pops a 3 colored block-in it states to check the wires. i have already checked the wires they are all hooked up. On the keyboard the number,caps, and scroll lock lights flicker once in a while too. Dont know what to do, help.

It sounds like you might have a bad board or memory card. If you dont hear the normal sounds from the computer as it boots up, its an internal problem.

Ok i have a emachine c2280 we put a new power supply changed the ram and i have no video, there is also a red light next to the ram what isit..


Anytime. Just in case you there is any way you can get video to display. There is a setting in bios to change what controls the display adaptor. You might want to try to reset your bios and see if you can change this setting. Figure there is nothing you can hurt at this point.

Just remove the "watch battery" that is on the motherboard for a couple minutes and try to start the computer. Also you might want to look for some pins on the board that say something about bios reset jumpers. Normally you short the two pins then remove and boot. Sometimes you short-boot-shutdown-unshort-boot again.
I'm thinking though if you can get in there you can set your display to pci or agp or whatever kind of video card you have.

Monitor gets a square marked loicked in the middle of the screen. modem blinks on/off. help!


To change your screen saver, right click on the clear area of your desktop and and click on properties. Then, at the top info bar, click on the screen saver button and select a screen saver from the list that you want.
For the blinking light on your modem, it is supposed to blink, and if you want to, you could move it a certain way where you won't see it blinking.
