Question about Gateway Profile 3 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Profile 3 won't power up, green light on power brick blinks when connected, green light steady when disconnect from computer. Is the problem in the power brick or the computer itself? Thank you.

    The brick uses a 4 pin connector, I have measured the voltage at two pins as +12v. I am not able to measure the amperage, which is listed as 6.67A on the brick. Would low amperage cause it to not power up the 'puter? There is no fuse or chart on the brick. Upon cracking the brick open, I see no fuse or chart inside either. It is a Gateway brick, any ideas on the blinking green light? Under past normal operation the light was on steady. I don't want to waste money on a brick if the 'puter is shot.

    Thanks again, Randy

You can daignose if the problem is with power brick or computer itself, by connecting any other electorinc device from power brick. See if the green light continue to blink. Further there is a chart given on the power brick, which indicates which lights should be ON for normal state. You can also try replacing the phuse on power brick, if faulty.

Power Problem with 2Wire 2701HG-B


Sounds like a startup self test. All wireless devices go through a power on self test. Does it connect? You can connect to it and go online? I rarely turn mine off, only in a electrical storm.

Linksys has stopped working - no connectivity. I directly connected the modem to computer and it works fine. Power light on Linksys is green but is blinking and does not go to steady green.


You can try to follow the steps from this link to fix the blinking power light of your router, because a blinking power light is a sign of something is bad on the router. But if after doing the steps and still a blinking power the router is already bad and needs replacement.

Monitor is blank. Green power light is on steady.


Self test failed means Monitor is bad.

Check input settings, whether DVI mode is selected.

Battery indicator?


Hi there.
Sounds like the battery could be faulty.
The diagnostic procedures from the Dell User Guide are as follows:

Total Power Failure When Using a Battery
If an AC adapter is not connected to your computer, the computer's power source
is a battery. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
battery needs to be charged. If the battery is flashing green and amber, the
battery may be defective. To troubleshoot this problem, use the following
procedure.
1. Turn off the computer and peripherals, and disconnect them from AC power.
2. Reseat each installed battery by removing it and then replacing it.
3. Turn on the computer. Does the green power indicator light up?
Allow one minute for the computer to initialize its components before checking
for signs of power.
Yes. Continue to step 4.
No. Use the AC adapter to connect your computer to AC power. If the computer
operates normally when using AC power, go to step 7. If the computer does not
boot when using the AC adapter, see the previous subsection, "Total Power
Failure When Using the AC Adapter."
4. Does the battery indicator flash amber or show a a steady amber light?
Yes. The battery needs to be charged. Go step 5.
No. Go to step 7.
5. Connect the computer to AC power, and fully charge the battery.
For instructions, see the topic titled "Charging the Battery" in the online
System User's Guide.
6. As the battery charges, does the green battery indicator light up?
Yes. Go to step 9.
No. Go to step 7.
7. Is the battery indicator flashing green and amber?
Yes. Your computer may be in a hot environment. Charging the battery in this
condition may affect the life span of the battery. Continue to step 8.
No. The problem is resolved.
8. Disconnect the computer from AC power. Is the the battery indicator still
flashing amber?
Yes. You may have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is resolved.
9. Remove the battery, and press its test button. Is the uppermost indicator in
the charge gauge of the battery flashing?
Yes. You have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
No. The problem is resolved.
10. If a spare battery is available, fully charge it, and then install it in the
computer.
11. Turn on the computer. Is the power indicator off?
Yes. Your original battery is defective.

Good luck
