Question about Dell E173FPb 17" TFT LCD Monitor
I was playing a game when the computer started lagging so I left it for 15 minutes came back and it was still lagging, I shut it off, turned it back on and then monitor wouldn't load anything and the power button was glowed brown instead of that light green.any ideas on whats going on and how I can fix it? :(
A solid amber power LED on a Dell System is indicative of a no post. There are 4 diagnostics LEDs on most Dell Towers (Either on the back marked ABCD, or on the front marked 1234) they can give more details of what the POST problem is.
Troubleshooting: Disconnect all external connections to tower except power, turn it on, see if the LED indications changed. If they change, then connect disconnected items one at a time till the failed item is found. If no change, the open tower, remove all PCI expansion cards, see if system will boot. If still no change, then most likely a motherboard failure. Take RAM out, see if you get a Beep error code when powered on, if no beeps, replace motherboard. If it does beep, try RAM modules one at a time, if it boots with 1 but not the other, replace the effected module. If no boot, with either replace MB
