A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

If I recall correctly, we had this happen when we first got our 170L's. The problem was the actual on/off switch on the unit was defective. Ours were still under warranty so Dell replaced the units. If you have spare 170L's you can pop the faceplate and swap on/off switches to see if that corrects the issue and then order a switch from Dell.

Check all of the electrical connections to all devices in the machine, especially the motherboard. Many times this is a result of a poor connection being jarred loose during a move.

You need to have the Power Supply replaced on your Dell. Don't even think about repairing a power supply it caries dangerous voltages and you can get seriously injured. So just take the Dell to a Certified A + Technician Shop near where you live Local shops will often work with you if you do upgrades and repairs with them Good Luck! If you fel you can do this repair be sure to ground yourself so you dont short out your Motherboard components. and remove tyehb screws from the power supply and detach the power cables from the motherboard and hard drive and other drives optical drives CDRWs then replace and reconnect the new power supply dont buy the cheapest one getb a power supply rated higher than yoiur current one so that when you upgrade the system there is enough power there to run all the drives and devices. Good Luck Write me if you have questions I am a A+ Certified Technician with 14 years experience and I have a part time Computer Business. I had a Retail Computer Store and Repair business for over 8 years in St Petersburg ,Fl I do part-time repairs and upgrades now as well as new custom builds by request.
