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.

Best Regards

Blinking yellow light on xps200. changed power supply. still blinking yellow


A blinking yellow light means that there is something wrong with the motherboard, if not the motherboard itself it will be either the RAM, wiring connections, bad processor or it may need a fresh coat of thermal paste on the processor itself. With Dells, its pretty easy to find out. Start the pc and You will hear some beeps count the beeps. ex:beep.beep...beep.beep which gives You a code this one being 22. Once You get the code go to Dell support and look up service code and it will tell You what the problem is. Good Luck.

Hi - recently I've been getting a no signal message on my monitor - system is still runnung but no video. I have checked cables - all are OK - The computer is a Gateway DX4300


Three major components usually is causing this kind of problem. One is the memory card. Two the video card . and lastly worst is the motherboard. Check and clean your memory card first then put it back to its place of slot. Start your computer. If you hear one beep but still no pictures, the problem lies in your video card. If there's still no beep sound and picture, and you think your memory card is good, try to clean your video card, then start your computer. If there is still no picture, and you think your video card is good, then you have a problem with your motherboard. Indication that your cpu is working were, beeping sounds, lead lights blinking or changing sequence is present. If it is present, your monitor has a defect an needs to be replaced.But if none of this is present, we have a motherboard problem.

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.

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.
