Hello Leaha_6, Unfortunately that flashing yellow light is the Dell indicator that there is an internal power problem, usually with the power supply. Before replacing anything you may want to unplug the computer, open the case, and re-seat all of the power cables inside. That might help. The next step would be to replace the power supply. Post a reply if you have any further questions. Thanks!! Edward

Battery light flashing yellow then green


A flashing yellow light usually means a low battery. When the light turns green, the battery is fully charged. It is helpful to list brand and model number because flashing lights similar to beeps from a computer, are usually brand specific codes which can be looked up on a chart to interpret.

I powered off my Dell Optiplex 745 as normal one night before bed. The next morning I went to turn it on and it just displayed a yellow flashing light where it normally displays a green light. The fan did...


Hello,

This model has been having problems with the motherboard that can cause that exact problem, Not powering up, Flashing yellow light or locking up right after booting up. The first thing to check is parts called capacitors on the motherboard. We have an article posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/dell-optiplex-745-repair/ that has detailed pictures and information about this issue. The pictures are of the tower case Optilpex 745 but the board is the same for your unit. Check it out and see if your board has this issue. If you can solder then you should be able to fix it yourself for less than $15.00 If your board does not have the bad capacitors then the blinking yellow light is a failure in the power supply unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

When i turn on my PS3 it as it starts up a yellow light comes on


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

Start button flashes yellow - will not turn on


I have found that if the CMOS battery is removed and the unit unpluged for 5 mins (reseting the unit to default config) It will restart. The battery should not be replaced thus to maintain your date and time settings, it shoud not be unpluged for long periods.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
