The problem is within the PSU, try changing it with a new one, only be careful because it is a special one :)

Orange blinking light is an indication of either a mismatched memory condition, or perhaps an onboard chip failure. When you clean the memory, using a cloth, will impart ESD(ElectroStatic Discharge) into the memory, and soften or kill it. Using an insulated standard wooden pencil, is acceptable, but only if you are grounded to the chassis, or earth ground. That is a good way to Fry your memory sticks.

got backup for your Dell?

    that condition is known as 'No Post' and almost certainly indicates a blown Motherboard at some level.

Hi, I think if its continuous beeping sound then Take out ram And clean with dry cloth the golden surface. And on mother board clean with vaccum cleaner. and fix it again.

If the same beep sound is coming try changing the Ram.

What does the blinking orange light mean on my dell CPU, I can't get it to power up


Hi,
dell only knows 2 colors blue and orange... if you have no light on the mother board when power is plugged in. then your power supply is probably gone. considering you didn't mention beeps I would say thats it.

I cant start my computer! when i press the power button my monitors light turns orange(from yellow) and my keyboard's light starts blinking...there comes a beep sound three times,my CPU power light remains...


This means there is some issue with your computers RAM sticks, Open the CPU and refix the RAM sticks .If you have multiple RAMs in system try to fix one and start computer.Still not working remove that RAM and fix another one. even its not working you will have to change RAMs.

My nec vt595 wont start up the status light is flashing orange


The only time the "status" light will be orange is when you accidently press the cabinet button and the cabinet is locked.

However, if the "power" light is blinking orange it means that the projector is cooling down and you need to wait a few minutes.

Acer aspire T120c wont start red light blinks once when i push the power button


If you turn on the computer and it will beep once and the red light blinks means the computer is starting will.. but if the computer beep once and the red light blinks once means there are something missing or something bothering the computer.. try this Check the connection cable of your computer, the power source, the hardware interface, and if you installed a new hardware, try taking that hardware out and turn on again the computer. if the problem still exist try to disassemble and assemble the hardware of the computer. You must have someone with you know how to assemble and disassemble the computer hardware for safety method TY.

HOPE I CAN HELP

No display and wont boot


A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Power supply is easier and cheaper to replace.
