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.

check if the drive is showing in the bios of the server,
shut down the server, take out the power cable, press and hold the power button so as to realease flea power, open the server, and reseat the data cable at both ends and if there is another power cable available in the server swap it with the existing cable plugged into the scsi drive.

and now try to start your server.

SOURCE: high pitched noise red light blinking

A high pitch noise comes normally from blown capacitors from the motherboard or the power supply. But mostly high pitch noise comes from power supplies.

You could have to open up the power supply to see them.

Verify if it is the case and replace the faulty part.

I am assuming you mean the power light is flashing, probably amber.

Here is a link that explains the codes.

A flashing amber light usually means there may be a power problem or an internal device malfunction. See the link.

Red Flashing Icon


The icons from the left: 1. Power indocator 2. Hard Disk indicator --> it is a tube icon, not battery, but means hard drive. 3. Power Source indicator 4. Bluetooth indicator
The third from left means the power source indicator. Normally it is light green. If there is battery problem (can not charge or battery overload) it flashes amber/orange. If flashes red, it indicates that the battery power is low. You need to change the battery or connect the AC adapter.

Dell 600m Laptop Killing batteries


If you are using known good batteries, and you have the most current BIOS Flash, then it is likely a failure of the charging curcuit on the motherboard. The flashing Amber (Some people see it as red) led indicates a failed battery

The Multiple good batteries, I assume have been recently purchased, because computer batteries are consumable and are rated for 300 to 500 charging cycles before they wear out.

I replaced my 700m motherboard with one from Ebay for about $170.00 about a year ago.
