It could be a memory error (the beep you hear tells you what is the error code, 1 beep is usually a memory error. Go to http://www.customautomaticsystems.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=54 to learn more about computer P.O.S.T. and error beeps.

Also the fact that you kept you <processor??> clean. Does this mean you didn't put thermal paste on it? If so you definitely need to put some on there to help with heat exchange with the heatsink.

The printer feed light is blinking orange. It blinks orange and than the power light blinks green, and then that repeats twice. I've tried re-feeding the paper but it's still not printing.


The paper feed rollers might be dirty. Please turn off the printer and clean the rollers with a soft rag with a little alcohol on it, wait a few minutes for the alcohol to dry and turn the printer back on.

When I press the power on it makes a sound twice and the Harddrive button stays orange


Hi there,

This is a hardware problem. Try disconnecting all cables behind the tower then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. After that try connecting just the power cable and turn on the pc. If there is no change (power light is still orange), it could be numerous things. like your power supply , memory, motherboard or processor. If it works then one of your external devices is causing this problem. If you can open your tower (just incase power light is still orange) try removing the memory and cleaning the contacts using a pencil eraser. Rub it to the gold contacts to clean it (please refer to the manual to do it).

My dell dimension 2400 goes on standby automatically.


If the power LED on the Tower is blinking amber, then most likely the power supply in the tower is failing. Replace the power supply.

Switching problem


If the power light is flashing either yellow or orange and you do not hear any fans turn on, your power supply is defective. Contact Dell if you are still under warranty and if not, there are many 3rd party sites, like http://www.pcconnection.com, that you can purchase a new one.

Good luck to you.

Blue light blinking, tank full, water not heating up

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

Tower will not turn on


I am in no way an expert on computers but after hours of research, of course starting at fixya.com, and trying everything short of buying power supply and motherboard, i found a post that suggested to use a blow dryer and blow hot air over the area with the blinking light for about a minute. I was really reluctant to try this but am glad i did. In less than a minute i could hear the comp powering up and the light went and stayed solid, so far that is. I always use fixya.com for everything and wanted to put what helped me on here in case it can help someone else or save them hours of research. I hope this help some. Good luck.

Tower fan runs fast without stopping


either your computer is running too hot (clean it out physically, or clean out viruses) OR the fan is failing, and it sounds louder and faster cause the bad fan bearings are making that noise.

Attention Light Is Rapidly Blinking Orange


sorry I got it, usually you may try:
1) check all paper road no paper inside include the area betweem input tray and cartridge unit the area wetween cartridge and fuser unit and output tray.
2) check 4 sensor input sensor near the input tray roller, marging sensor between input roller and cartridge unit, cartridge sensor at oneside of cartridge unit body, fuser sensor near fuser roller. usually need to clean or adjustment the position.
3) check input roller and cartridge unit and fuser unit at running condition when the power on.
anyone nothing running show error light blink, also show the hardware trouble if all sensors are normal.
