Orange light and clicking noise sounds like the hard drive has failed.
The enclosure should still be good so if you can open it and replace the hard driver you will be back in business.

Good luck.

Have a look in disk management if on win 7 or vista just type in "disk Management" in your search bar after clicking start button and see if it shows up there. If not try plugging into another computer and see what happens. If still no good you say only 6 weeks it should be guaranteed. If your data is important to you never trust just 1 source of backup maybe start copying to DVD's also. Good luck with it from Scott

My powerbrick lightis orange but my xbox360 wont turn on


If the light on the power brick stays orange after turning the console on it means the brick is not properly functioning. You can attempt to clean the power brick with a can of air. Also make sure it has ventilation and is not sitting on carpet. This can cause the power brick itself to overheat and cause issues with it and the console itself. Also make sure your 360 is not plugger into a surge suppressor as this can cause issue due to double protection.
If possible, test the power brick on a different console, and test the console on a different power brick. This will narrow down your problem area.

Optiplex 755 flashing orange power button light only


Sounds like you only have power going to your motherboard.

The power supply might be bad on it, that or maybe the power cord is going bad and is only letting a small amount go through. I don't see why there should be a problem if you have even a little bit of power going though.

IOGEAR COMBO not recognised


Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
