    I have a Compaq Presario 3000+ that will not power up. The LED in the back where the power plugs in is flashing green and continues to flash

    green for about a minute after the power plug is unplugged. I am letting

    it sit without power for now but do not know if it will start back up. Do I

    need to get a new power supply?

    I powered the unit down; when I tried to powered it up the only reaction is a green led flashing. The led is located in the back close to the receptacle where the 120 VAC are connected. The led is part of the power supply box.

    The led may be something like a power or function check. The led is flasing color green. No fan goes on or any other sign of life. I disconnected all borads attached t0o the mother board as well as each fun and every load from the power cables.

Not understanding your question ..need more info .. is the computer not booting ? Is it flashing red, green, orange? need more info

Posted on Mar 08, 2008

I have a dell dimension 4700C. When I turn on the power, all I get is a flashing amber light. The computer does not boot up. If I leave the computer unplugged for about 5 minutes, Ithen plugged back in, I can hear the power supply kick in for about 2 second, then it stop. I then get a flash amber light. Any idea or recommendation?

Posted on Jul 20, 2008

Just got a Dell 4700c from a client with the same problem. The power supply has gone bad. I checked it with my power supply tester which said it was bad. I then hooked up a working power supply and the computer fired right up. The sucky thing about it is it's not a standard power supply. A regular power supply will not fit. While searching the internet, I find these little buggers cost about $100 and be sure you find one that has a SATA power cable, although you might be able to use an adapter, the fit is so tight and the drive is mounted right next to hinge on the case, it might not close correctly.

Flashing amber light


Hi, on most Dells a flashing amber light on the power button indicates a problem with the PSU or a short on the main power rail, if this is the case you should have 2 flashing lights as well, 1 & 3.
