Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com


In order to fix the yellow flashing light please remove and reinstall the ram and graphic card
reset the cmos

Also refer to the Dells Technical Support troubleshooting steps:

http://support2.jp.dell.com/docs/sys...m/adtshoot.htm


It couold also be the front USB ports that some time causes the computer not to power on and the blinking yellow lights.

Thank You
Let me know if you have any further queiries.

Elite book 2640 blue light light on,yellow light flashing,screen blank


yellow light sounds like charge indication.If you press the power botton the fan should spin and you should be able to open the DVD by pressing the button on the tray.These are 1st steps to check motherboard function.If there is RAM installed remove battery after turning off power supply.Open memory door and reseat RAM.Replace cover then battery - power on.Any picture?Try an LCD monitor - no picture? Try different RAM or 1 stick at a time,remember to remove battery or RAM will be damaged.Still no picture - remove battery and try with AC adapter only.Still no picture - remove AC hold down power button for 30-sec plug in AC only and press power button.Still no picture - check CMOS battery if it uses a CR2032 button cell it may be flat.This can cause a no boot situation.If the CMOS has a plug or is soldered to the board that should be OK.The button cell may be hidden in the chassis anyway and to change it will require disassembly.So replace it when doing the cleaning.Still no picture - GPU is faulty.The unit should be disassembled and a reflow of GPU done,as well as cleaning all dust and fluff from the fan and other cooling system components.Airflow restriction of the cooling system is the cause of overheating and GPU issues.Google disassembly for your laptop and reflow method for GPU.If you have no experience with disassembly a step by step guide is crucial.Breaking parts is easy so extreme care is very important.

Blank screen and power light goes on and off


You don't give much information about your computer except the model #. Unplug the computer from the wall. Remove the battery. Press and hold down the power button for about i minute. Release it. Then put the battery back in and connect the cord to the wall. Try the power button again and post back what happens. How old is the computer, what operating system are you using and what were you doing when this happened.

Green light blinking screen blank


Hi Suzee,

Is the green flashing on the tower or the monitor?

If it is flashing on the monitor, then it might be tht the monitor is not gettign signal from the tower.
To check, disconnect the monitor from the tower and check the monitor. If you get a msg on the screen like no input signal or check video cable, then 99% monitor is fine.

Check for the power supply light at the back of the tower.

Disconnect everything from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the comp for about 30 seconds.

Then connect the cables and check if it is working.
