Orange flashing lights

Is it a common problem? when a cd got broken into pieces in the cd drive model: GCE-8483B accidentally. I removed the cd compactment, and got rid of the pieces. When the power cable is plugged to power supply unit, which model is "Bestec ATX-250-12E the power on light signal, keep blinking or rather flashing. Holding down the start button do not shut the pc down. The hard disk/hard drive do not start at all either I wonder if the power supply unit gone? Since the operative system do not start. Any help to identify this problem will be much appreciated.

Power light on computer flashes..tried the trouble shooting advice w no results. Bestec power supply model atx 250-12z. Unplugged computer to clean and now wont turn on..No fan no nothing..Just a green...


If you didn't accidentally unplug the four pin connector near the CPU, you need to replace the power supply. This is actually a fairly common occurrence with the cheap ATX power supplies being tossed into systems these days.

My WD external 500G hard drive is no longer powering up after being plugged in to the wall. The power supply 'box' is flashing a green light. It says the model number is ADS008. Can anyone help?


Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty because a computer has to have an end to the circuit any fulty leads will lead to no boot up
good luck

Dell Optiplex GX280 Power switch flashes white light rapidly system will not turn on Fans do not start


Outlet - unplug the power cable and put it on an outlet on its own Power Cord - make sure you remove the power cable from the back and plug it back in to make sure you have a good connection. things that cause this blinking light: Power Supply -open system and follow cables to make sure its connected well to each part. I/O Panel - this is where the power button is at . just open the system and follow it behind the power button.the flat cable going to the mother board , disconnect it. plug the power cable to the wall and if the system starts up then the power supply is good and the the cable that you just disconnected is bad.

If it still doesn't power up remove
memory
hard drive
dvd/cd drive
and start the system.
no luck then it is the systemboard.

Laptop won't turn on and charging light is not orange when plugge


I had the exact same problem. Here is the fix: remove the keyboard, battery and CMOS battery then press and hold the power button for a min. Plug just the power in then try to turn it back on. If it doesnt remove more perhiprels such as DVD, memory, hard drive then do the power button hold cycle again. After it turns on, remove the power then add the perhiprels you need to boot to BIOS, i.e; keyboard & memory. Go to BIOS then plug in the battery while the laptop is running. Unplug the power to see make sure laptop runs on the battery. Turn off then add the rest of perhiprels then plug it in power again before closing all up. If the orange light problem comes back repeat above! OR you can take it to your HP dealer to have it fixed under warranty if you are lucky. Then never buy HP ****!

Hope it helps...

Mac Ibook Power supply problem


On Mac iBooks the orange light comes on when it charges the battery. Once the battery is charged it turns green. Im guessing the other powersupply was aftermarket or broken. EIther way, if it starts out green - recognizes the battery isnt full - turns orange for a while - then turns green when the battery is full, then the computer and powersupply are working perfectly. Enjoy your iBook!

Dell Dimension power problem


There are several different solutions for this as posted at this Forum.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/51352-2-dell-dimension-8400-wont-boot

1) A lot of people have just removed the Jumper for the CMOS and turned the Power back on and back off and replaced the jumper and/or removed the battery.

2) Several people have reseated the Memory and after booting back up it worked.

3) A few had to replace the Mother Board and CPU but in this instance they had to also replace the Case because the Dell case wasn't really fit for the heat of from the CPU.

4) I had the exact same problem and luckily replacing the Power Supply fixed this for me. I had to cut out the back of the Dell case for the toggle on/off switch but when I tested the old Power Supply it was only getting 5amps and this was causing the Amber/Orange/Yellow light to constantly flash.

I hope this helps!

Powermac g4 will not turn


this is a common problem with G4 Quicksilver. Your power-supply is defect and has to be replaced. I have 4 G4s in my lab with the same symptom: a short flash of the power-button light, sometimes it turns on, but mostly the machine is dead.

green-white for front panel Power indicator LED , Blue-white for RESET Switch , Orange-white for POWER BUTTON , Red-white for HDD LED . The berg pin header on the motherboard will have these legend printed just beside the connector or due to lack of space slightly away from it .
