ABC diagnostic lights are green and D is yellow. Ram only works if slot 1 is used. If slot 1 and 3 are used Bios appears on the monitor with a flashing cursor. Dell dimension 8400

A,B,C green and D yellow is indicative of a component that the system cannot read a device it feels necessary to boot the machine such as a hard drive, floppy or cd/dvd drive. Power down the system, remove the power cord from the back, push the power button in for 10 seconds to bleed off the power. Remove and reseat all cables connecting the system devices. Remove all ram except for one stick and reboot. If you get boot, then try replacing the ram one stick at a time. If you still cannot boot though, try removing the cables from the devices and then plug in one a time until you get the machine to boot. If there is still a problem, the hard drive or its controller maybe the culprit.

When I power on my eMachines C2480, I do not get any video output. I never see the BIOS menu indication. I see the hard disk indicator flash yellow and then go dark. I have tried to boot from CD without...

Try all the normal stuff be sure the monitor is turned on, check the cable in the rear of the computer be sure it is plugged in good. Check the contrast be sure it is not down all the way. Hook it up to another computer or unplug it from the computer it should have a no signal notice showing.

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok

Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional

CISCO 2600 Router Troubleshooting

This is the indicator configuration for the 2600, if the lights are yellow there is a problem.

The following indicator LEDs provide power, activity, and status information:
POWER (green)—Lit when power is on
RPS (green)
Off—No redundant power supply (RPS) is present
Blinking—System is booted, RPS is present, RPS failure
Continuous on—System is booted, RPS is present, no RPS failure
ACTIVITY (green)
Slow, steady blinking—System is booting
Blinks during system activity, such as interrupts and packet transfers
I suggest going to for full documentation on this product.

Inspiron 530S Power Save Mode Loop

First you need to make sure that there are no other removable devices plug on the system, like usb, external hard drives, then if that will work try to go to the bios, press f2 when you see the dell logo, and go to the system setup, go to the boot device configuration and make sure that removable device is not the first boot device, if it is the first one choose hard disk and then second boot device ad cd rom/dvd rom and then disable the 3rd boot and the fourth boot device. Make sure to save the changes. And restart the system again. Once the computer is back and running try to go to and check the bios, download if there is a bios update for the system.
