Flashing red light has something to do with overheating issue. You can read this in your owner's manual.

Just let it set for a while then make sure it is in standby then turn it off from the back and turn it back on. If that doesn't work then hold down the power button for 10 seconds then when it beeps let go of the power button and see if it works. If this doesn't help then you have a hardware issue of some sort.

Thank you and good luck!

Power led flashing. Why won't it boot?


Hi Jeremy,

My name is Pradeep and I work for Dell's Social Media Team.
The flashing LED power light means the power supply is receiving power from the source, but is unable to properly distribute it to the components.
Please turn off the system and unplug only the power cable and disconnect external devices. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Plug in the power cable and check the status.
Please remove CMOS battery and wait for 5 minutes to drain the power from motherboard. Please try reseating with spare CMOS battery and check the results. If this doesn't , please contact local technician for further assistance.

My Dell Dimension begins to boot then sits there as if asleep


It sounds like it's probably the power supply. Computers require more power to boot up than they do to keep running, so if it's fine once it gets going, the power supply may just be dying. If you have a multimeter and know what you're doing, you can test the power supply connectors to see if any of them (especially the ones leading to the motherboard) are not giving the proper voltages.

How old is the computer?

You should do a system restore. It may have happened because of a system update, if your set up to receive them automatically.

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 Cisco.com for full documentation on this product.

Dell latitude D600 problem


The flashing caps lock is an indication of a failed POWER on Self-Test (POST)

Remove the HDD, Battery, AC adapter, RAM and Modem

Press and hold power button for 15 seconds

Connect AC, see if you get any beep codes. If you do, power off, disconnect power, insert RAM, connect AC and reboot. If system boots, power off and add hard drive. If it doesn't, replace the motherboard.

If the system boots with RAM, but fails to boot with HDD, replace HDD 1st.

Auto hibernated, will not power back up


It's possible that the laptop is stuck thinking it should be resuming from standby but cannot find the data in memory. Remove the battery, unplug the power cord, and hold down the power button for at least 10 seconds. Then plug JUST the power cord back in and try to boot the system. If you still get no response then it's possible that one of your RAM sticks is going bad. With the battery and power cord removed try removing both sticks of RAM. Then try to boot the system again with only the power cord in use and no RAM installed. See if you get some sort of response from the BIOS. Hold down the power button to turn the computer off again, remove the power cord, and then try booting the system with just one of the memory sticks installed. If you can isolate one of the sticks as causing the failed boot, then that stick is most likely faulty.
