My computer won't turn on. Orange light flashing......

My computer won't turn on. The orange light is flashing on the tower (not the monitor), and everything else plugged into the same adaptor is working. The power went out, and the computer hasn't turned on since then.

Why has my monitor turned orange. model dylm19r6 computer monitor


If you mean the light on your monitor is orange instead of green, it means the monitor is not receiving data from the computer.
Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Please can you help us. when we turn the computer on the monitor light stays blue with the screen remaining black, when we turn the tower off the light stays blue when it usually has the orange standby...


There is probably a conflicting setting in your power management options. My recommendation is that you check the monitor setting in Windows and see how you have it set up. In Windows it is under CONTROL PANEL>POWER OPTIONS. There are a few differences between WINDOWS 7 and XP from here on out, but in general, do not select a scheme and do not select any hibernate, standby, or sleep modes. If you stick with a simple power saving option, like "TURN OFF MONITOR: After 15 mins." you should not have any further problems.

Many of the Windows "green schemes" will not work right with different combinations of BIOS, Hard drive, motherboard, and monitor. It is best to avoid them, unless you are very patient and willing to go the trial and error route. Good Luck!

My vostro 200 slim tower wont turn on PLZ READ FULL


There could be a hardware problem on the computer if the power button led light is "Orange/ or amber", if you can open the computer, try removing one memory card at a time and see if the power button will change.

My biewsonic va702b, when powered up flashes for one second the screen. it's bright in all the corners, just wont stay on, power light changed to orange. do I have inverter problems??


The power light turning orange means the monitor isn't getting a signal from the computer. Or the monitor has a problem. If the screen shows light in the corners, the inverter is working. (If the inverter stops there is no light at all.)

The first thing to try is connecting another monitor to make sure your computer is actually starting up. If that monitor also shows nothing, you have a computer issue to take care of. Otherwise the monitor needs service.

Dell Monitor Not Working


well if the status of the LEd on the monitor is amber(orange) & the system is running on a on board video card & not a Add-on video card... it is a possibility the the integrated video card ot the mother board might have gone bad... either contact a local tech or the tech support for the computer...

also unplug the monitor cable from the system tower & then if you see that there are the bars moving which say monitor self test on... means tht the problem is with the video card or the mother board...
since the system is running on a integrated video card...

Sir Help me with my Compaq monitor MV520 it won't turn the power led flashing orange to green continously


it could be th epower supply and it could be the monitor.
power ON button should not flash orange regardless what you do. it should stay green. then orange. not orange to green to orange.
try the monitor on another PC if you can fine one.
the other thing is are the 2 monitor similar (CRT to CRT and LCD to LCD), you can't mix the the two, they will work but need different video driver to function correctly.
