    Solving Problems

    Power Problems

    If the power light is off
    — The computer is

    either turned off or is not receiving power.

    • Reseat the power cable into both the

    power connector on the computer and the

    electrical outlet.

    • If the computer is plugged into a power strip,

    ensure that the power strip is plugged into

    an electrical outlet and that the power strip

    is turned on. Also temporarily bypass power

    protection devices, power strips, and power

    extension cables to verify that the computer

    turns on properly.

    • Ensure that the electrical outlet is working

    by testing it with another device, such as a

    lamp.

    • Check the AC adapter cable connections. If

    the AC adapter has a light, ensure that the

    light on the AC adapter is on.

    If the power light is solid white and the

    computer is not responding
    — The display may

    not be connected or powered on. Ensure that

    the display is properly connected and then turn

    it off then back on.

    If the power light is blinking white
    — The

    computer is in standby mode. Press a key on the

    keyboard, move the pointer on the trackpad or a

    connected mouse, or press the power button to

    resume normal operation.

    If the power light is solid amber
    — The

    computer has a power problem or an internal

    device malfunction. For assistance contact Dell,

    see “Contacting Dell” on page 50.

    If the power light is blinking amber
    — The

    computer is receiving electrical power, but a

    device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly

    installed. You may have to remove and then

    reinstall the memory modules (for information on

    removing and replacing memory modules, see

    the Service Manual on the Dell Support website

    at support.dell.com).

No power suply


Do you mean what power supply to install inside of the computer? There is no power supply that plugs into the back of a desktop computer. If you are talking about what power plug goes into the back, Then any pc 3 slot female plug should work. The link below should give you an idea. If the link doesn't show, Then search for "computer power cords"

I accidentally plugged computer avr 220v to 110 could it affect my power supply


If the computer power supply is a 240 volt unit and you plugged into 110 volt mains the the computer should be OK.
Some power supplies have a voltage selection switch on the back of the power supply switch to 110 volts and it should work.
If the power supply is 110 volts and you plug it into a 240 volts mains then you will damage the power supply and possibly the computer as well.

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

My lacie dvd burner is not powering on, all plugs have been checked and recheck


If it is not powering on and you have power working on the unit then the unit is bad. replace the unit. It just went bad if it is not powering on with it plugged in. Try using another cord if available to use or test it with a volt meter end to end plugged in. If it is powered by a USB port from the computer end. try restarting the computer and unplugging the computer from the power socket and push the button down on the power button on your computer. Then replug it in again and restart the computer then plug in the burner again and see if it starts up then. If not replace the burner unit it is bad.

Gateway mx6448 Notebook will not power on, Red LED flashes 4 times when power on button is pressed then nothing happens. It is the same with only the battery. LED will not flash if I have only the power...


There can be many things associated with no power to the computer.
  • The outlet into which the computer is plugged may be inoperative.

  • The surge protector you are using may be inoperative.

  • The power cable may be loose or damaged.

  • An internal device may be damaged.

  • The power supply may be inoperative.

Basic Troubleshooting Power to the Computer
There may not be a consistent flow of power to the computer.
  1. Verify that the outlet into which you are plugging the computer is operational.

  2. If you have the computer plugged into a surge protector, plug it directly into the outlet.

  3. Verify that the power cable is plugged securely into the back of the computer.

  4. If you have a monitor with a removable power cord, swap the power cords between the monitor and the computer.

Note: If you recently added a new hardware device prior to experiencing the no power issue, turn off the computer and remove the newly added hardware. If there is still no power, reseat all the other cards and cables in the computer to verify that all other devices are seated securely.
Resolving Power Supply Issues
  • External Device Conflicts
  • There may be an external device causing the computer not to turn on properly.

    1. Before continuing, verify your computer is turned off.

    2. After you have established that adequate electricity is going to your computer, verify that the voltage switch on the back of the power supply is set correctly. The small red switch is to be set to the 115-volt setting.

    3. Remove all external devices except the monitor and turn on the computer. If the fan on the back of the computer now spins, turn off the computer. Plug in the external devices one at a time and turn on the computer after each device is added.

    4. Note: If you removed all external components and the fan on the back of the computer does not spin, the problem is with something inside the computer.

  • Internal Device Conflicts
  • This helps determine if the issue is a damaged or badly seated component.

    1. Verify that the computer is turned off.

    2. Remove the case from the computer.

    3. Remove all the red, yellow, and black power connectors from each floppy disk drive, CD-ROM drive, and tape backup unit that is in the computer. The only devices connected to the power supply are your hard disk drive and motherboard.

    4. Turn on the computer and verify that the fan on the back of the computer spins. If it does not spin, turn off the computer.

    5. Remove the power connection from the hard disk drive and reconnect power to one floppy disk drive. Turn on the computer and verify that the fan on the back of the computer spins.

    6. Reseat the power connection from the power supply to the motherboard. Turn on the computer and verify that the fan on the back of the computer spins. If the power has been restored, turn off the computer and reconnect the power connections to the devices. Test the computer for power after reconnecting each device.

  • Power Switch
  • The power switch may not be functioning properly.

    1. You may need to open the case and readjust the power switch.

    2. Locate the control panel inside the computer and remove any screws holding it in place.

    3. Turn on the computer with the control panel removed by pressing the button on the control panel that corresponds to the power button. If the power supply fan spins and/or the computer turns on, put the control panel back in its place. Try to turn on the computer again.

  • Test Switch and Diagnostic LED
  • Note: Not all power supplies have a test switch and diagnostic LED.
    Certain power supplies have a test switch and LED to help better troubleshoot the device. The green LED is always on when the computer is powered on. If the computer is not receiving power please perform the diagnostic test below.

    1. Verify that the computer is turned off.
    2. Remove the case from the computer.
    3. Remove all of the red, yellow, and black power connectors from each floppy disk drive and ROM drive and the tape backup unit (TBU) that is in the computer. Remove all power connectors from the motherboard. The only device that needs to be connected to the power supply is the hard disk drive.
    4. Press and hold the test switch for five seconds on the power supply, and then verify that the green light on the power supply comes on.
    5. If the light comes on:
      1. The power supply is good and something that was plugged into the power supply is causing the computer to not turn on.
      2. Plug devices in one at a time, testing with the test switch between each device to determine what is causing the power issue.
      3. If all devices are plugged in and the light is working, the connections may have needed to be reseated, or it is possibly a power switch issue.
      4. Go to the power switch section of the power supply checklist for additional troubleshooting steps.

    6. If the light does not come on:
      1. Disconnect the power from the hard disk drive, and then plug in power to the CD-ROM drive and determine whether the light comes on.
      2. If it does, follow the preceding information - "If the light comes on."
      3. If the light still does not come on, contact Gateway Technical Support.

    7. Confirm that power from the power supply is connected to the motherboard. Remove all cards and cables from the motherboard, and press and hold the test switch for five seconds on the power supply and determine whether the green light-emitting diode (LED) comes on.
    8. If the LED comes on, put the devices back in one at a time, testing between each device to determine what is causing the issue.

My computer is blinking orange light


In addition to the power supply, motherboard issues can cause the blinking power light and no boot problems. The Optiplex 270, 520, 620, 745 and 755 units are all known to have issues with capacitors on the motherboard. Here is a link to an article about this issue and what to do about it:

I had removed my pc to another room but after installed and checked all the cables connection the cpu was on but monitor and keyboard was not working


You might have bounced the video card out of the motherboard. Open the case on the computer (with power off) and push down on all the cards and make sure they're seated in the motherboard then try starting the computer again.
