IWILL ZMAX-AP, usb ports at the front light up on connecting power, press the start button, there is a brief flicker of life then nothing, hold the start button in and the brief flicker of life just repeats. Removed everything (apart from CPU) does this mean the motherboard has a fault?

Connect the USB cable (provided with the controller) into the data USB port on the top of the controller. Insert the other end of the controller into one of the two USB ports on the front of the system.
Power on the television and the Sony PlayStation 3. You are going to see a series of lights flicker on the top of the wireless controller.
Press the PS3 button in the middle of the controller. This tells the gaming system it is connected. A single light appears on the controller.
Remove the gaming controller from the PS3. You can now use it wireless. It is also possible to remove the USB cable from the PlayStation if it is blocking your field of view.
Hi, If you were getting the error message that the computer was overheating, you were lucky that it kept on going still . I would suggest to get the chassis fan replaced and then check.Most likely the chassis fan has died leading to the computer not starting .The extended overheating might even have caused a motherboard failure. As the AC adapter and power button light flickers
To connect a controller to Xbox 360 console:
1) Simply plug in the controller into one of the three USB ports avaiable on the system. Two of which are on the front of the console( next to the power button, there is a small door, it is marked by two dots on top, open it and you will find the two USB ports, the third USB port is on the back of the system)
1)Press and hold the Xbox guide button until the controller turns on.
2) Make sure that the console is on, then press and release the connect button on the console( the button next to the memory card slots)
3) Press and release the connect button on the Xbox wireless controller, if connected the ring of lights on the controller will stop blinking, one of which will now be constantly lit, The same will occur on the ring of lights on the console itself
WinXP SP2 blocks the use of the drive because it thinks it draws too
much power. But there is a simple procedure to override this (from WD
Under Windows XP, an error message of "Power Surge on Hub Port" or
"USB device has exceeded the power limits of it's hub port" is
displayed when connecting a USB device to a USB port on a computer or
Under some computers, USB devices are only allowed to draw a
maximum of 500 milliamps (mA) per connection from the USB port on the
computer system or from a USB hub. Under the Windows XP Operating
System, with the release of Service Pack 2, if a device attempts to
draw more than this (500 milliamps), a USB port balloon message is
displayed to indicate this over current condition. When connecting a
USB device that draws power from the USB bus, a very brief over current
condition is sometimes detected by the OS, and the warning message is
This message has no affect on the functionality of the USB port.
The USB hard drive should still function correctly on the USB port
regardless of the error message. To prevent the USB Power Surge Alert
message from displaying, please complete the following steps:
Click on Start.
Click on Control Panel.
Double-click on the System Icon.
Click on the Hardware Tab.
Click on the Device Manager button.
Click on the + next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand the selection.
Right-click and select Properties on any listing that displays USB UNIVERSAL HOST CONTROLLER.
Click on the Advanced Tab.
Check the box that says: Don't tell me about USB errors."
This works fine, and the drive works fine afterwards. I suspect it
actually draws less power than they say. Maybe it has a brief power
draw spike on startup, but it's running power seems less. In any case,
it works fine without the Y cable. I do think it is tacky that WD
doesn't give the cable for free, since my $7 Sabrent 2.5" Hard drive
enclosure came with a y cable.
But most likely the drive will work fine for you. It is a lovely quiet drive, and takes up no space at all.
Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.
try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.
"Then I came across the recommendation to check the USB ports for damage. Saw some of the pins bent inside the port. Once I fixed them, the computer powered back on as normal! Small fix for big problem. Cheers - Parveen"
My wife's Dell E510 also suffered from the orange blinking light on front, and would not power up this morning. I had just purchased a new power supply for another computer and swapped it with the Dell's. To no avail... Put the Dell back together and still no luck with a start. So I came across your site and remembered that recently the 6y'o had jammed a USB port in the front of the Dell and after bending that USB port back into shape every thing works again!
Who would have thought that a free fix would be so easy!
