Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop

1 Answer

There is a green blinking LED on my motherboard, and my computer is not turning on. What is wrong? Someone told me to check page 64 of a Dell .pdf file, and all it did was show me a layout of the motherboard, not an explanation of the green blinking light.

John, pull the power cord and leave the system off for 30seconds. Then reconnect and attempt to power on the system. If it still doesn't boot then listen to hear if there are error beeps. The number of beeps indicate what the possible problem could be. You would check this is the troubleshooting section. -Ravi Shanghavi

My dell inspiron 1525 power light is blinking amber???


Most newer models of Dell computers now have a diagnostic LED surrounding the power button on the from of the computer. When you press the power button to boot the PC, the light should be green and remain green under normal circumstances. Any other lights will help you troubleshoot the power issue you are having.

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them. Also pay attention to any unusual beeps or sounds coming from the computer. Then join us in our free computer tech support forums and we'll try and help you solve your PC problem. Sometimes, however, a service call to Dell will be required. If your system is still under warranty, you should always just call them first, as tampering with your computer may void your warranty.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
If you are referring to the green light on the system tower and is blinking the problem could be the system is in stand by mode.

Turn off the computer by pressing on the power button on the system tower for 10 seconds.

Disconnect the black power cord at the back of the system tower and then again press the power button on the tower for 10 seconds. There would be no activity on the tower when you do this.

Reconnect the power cord and then power on the computer to see if the issue is resolved.

Amber light that looks like a battery sign is blinking on & off on the front panel


Hi,

A blinking amber Pwer light indicates that there is something wrong with the power. You might check the following:

Make sure the AC switch is in the correct position. (115-US)

Are you getting any fan action or noise?

Is the green motherboard LED ON?

Make sure all you MB connections are secure.

Check (or have someone check) your power supply outputs.

And for reference, here is a link to your computer's Service manual:

Computer will not turn on


  • Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up.
    Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
    If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced.
    If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed.

LED trouble lights


the led lights you see is actually a diagnostic light which has an equivalent meaning there should be actually 4 led lights you see is it a yellow green green green pattern and this is at the back of your computer? if that is the case it could be an indication that there is a device inside your computer that is malfunctioning. you will have to strip down your computer. remove all that is connected to the motherboard (hard drive, cdrom, memory, expansion card if any) disconnect the mouse, keyboard and monitor as well. should you hear a beep or the light changed at the back it means your motherboard is good and the absence of memory is being reported by the beeping sound. try to connect the device one by one
now if you are referring to the light at the dell logo infront it is just a monitoring light to indicate if your computer is turned on and the right side light is whether your hard disk is doing an activity
