If the power light on the power supply is flashing, disconnect the devices battery, hdd, optical drive, memory, keyboard, palmrest, hinge cover and lcd. Disconnect these devices one after the other and check the functionality after each device. It seems like there is some device shorting the circuit.

Take out the battery and ac adapter and hold down the power button for 10-20 seconds in order to power drain the motherboard and then plug in the ac adapter and turn on the system.

How do I know if the power supply is bad on gateway gt5676 computer? I push power button and nothing happens. I unplug it and the green light flashes on the power supply( Bestec ATX 300 12 EB3). Plug it...


u can buy power supply testers, just a device you plug the power supply into, or try a new power supply. but if nothing is happening no fans etc theres a good chance its just the power supply.

Dell Inspiron 1721 will not power on,light on power supply flashes rapidly.


First, try and take out the battery and start the computer with just the power adapter. If the power adapter is still blinking, replace the power adapter. If the computer turns on with just the power adapter, replace the battery.

If the battery status light rapidly flashes amber, the battery may be defective. Purchase a replacement battery from Dell.

If the power supply status light flashes, the power supply may be defective. Purchase a replacement power supply.

The power button is flashing amber


A flashing amber light means a power supply problem usually caused by a bad power supply. Replace the power supply and everything should work fine for you.

The flashing power switch and power supply LED on the rear in conjunction with a power failure or surge indicates that there is a defective component; typically the power supply, motherboard, memory, processor or modem. -Disconnect all the power supply leads, drives, and motherboard as well as any USB, firewire and other external devices. -Plug in the 115v power supply cable and look at he LED on the back of the power supply. If it is still flashing the power supply is bad and needs to be replaced. -If it isn?t flashing then unplug the power supply plug in one device, plug in the power cord and watch for the flashing LED again. If it?s flashing you?ve found your culprit, if not move on to the next component and repeat the process until you?ve found it. Don?t forget your plug in cards could also be the problem. Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions. As always please don?t forget to rate this posting.
