The flashing light on the front of your laptop is a low battery warning. There probably isn't enough power in the battery to turn on the laptop. You need to plug in the ac power adaptor and let the battery charge until the battery light turns from 'orange', to 'green'.

Alarm beeps and orange light flashes when power is switched on.


If you unplug the power cord from the wall and the PSU, then flick the little red voltage switch on the back up and then back down again, plug it back in and it should work again

When i start my dell optiplex 330 pc, the power light will be blinking orange and all the fans on the pc do not work but the orange led on the motherboard works. It was running ok until I shift the RAM...


Youve burned something, You may have shocked your motherboard and burned it out. You don't need to see burn marks to fry it. or the ram stick is no longer good. try this, take out your ram stick, and the big watch battery along the wall, carefully not to touch anything else.. pull that out while off for 10 seconds, then re put it in. but it seems like somethings burned.. ive done that once, it was the ram stick, the other time i straight shocked the computer.. but try the bios thing, its a stretch but a possible jumpstart..

Rplaced power unit now the monitor will not come up with anything on it. Orange light blinking on front of cpu.


Make sure your monitor is connected to the proper video connection- that is if you have a video card in your machine and a video connection on your motherboard. If you connected to the motherboard and you have a video card -your screen will show nothing even though you are powered up. Dont know your situation, but just checking. Ive seen others do this.

try takeing out the battery and then try pluging the main power back in and see what happens. if the orange light goes away that means your battery is no good.
