SOURCE: solid amber power light

Your Monitor is not connected properly
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

Connecting Your Monitor
1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Connect the white connector end of the DVI cable attached on the monitor to the connectors on the computer.
3. Connect the USB cable that was included with your monitor to the computer and the upstream USB connector on the monitor. Once this cable is connected to the computer and the monitor, you can use the USB downstream on the monitor.
4. Connect any USB devices.
5. Connect the power cord.
6. Turn on your monitor and computer. If you do not see an image, see Troubleshooting Your Monitor.

NOTE: The Monitor will display full screen in White, Black, Red, Green and Blue color rolling pattern on screen if the DVI cable is not connected. This self test pattern will be displayed continually when Monitor detects that DVI cable from Monitor to PC is not connected.


* Check connection integrity at both ends of the video cable.
* Ensure the monitor and computer are plugged in to a working electrical outlet.
* Ensure power button is depressed fully.

SOURCE: I have a flickering amber light on the power button; replaced power supply and motherboard with no luck

FIRST IF YOU REPLACED THE POWER SUPPLY OF YOUR DELL PC,
MAKE SURE IS A RECOMMEND POWER SUPPLY FOR DELL COMPUTERS ONLY
BECAUSE DELL USE A DIFFERENT (NONSTARD) PS

AN PLEASE DON'T TURN YOUR PC ON, TILE YOU ARE SURE I'TS A DELL COMPATIBLE POWER SUPPLY
YOU CAN FRY YOUR COMPUTER

ON THE MOTHERBOARD I'T MAY BE THE BIOS (BIOS STANDS FOR INPUT /OUTPUT SYSTEM) I'T A CHIP ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD THAT CONTROLS THE SYSTEM HARDWARE AND ACTS AS AN INTERFACE BETWEEN THE OPERATING SYSTEM AND THE HARDWARE
I'T MAY BE FLASH
IF IS FLASH ,
YOU PROBABLY NEED TO REPLACE THE MOTHERBOARD
OR CALL DELL TO SEE IF THEY CAN FIX IT

SOURCE: Dell OptiPlex GX520 PC Desktop Problem

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low or missing voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

SOURCE: amber light on power button of Dell Dimension 4500

ok - the amber light of doom on a dell means one of two things - either your power supply is pooched - or your motherboard, If under warranty dell will send out a friendly tech to replace them - if not it will cost you a bit. get the price and consider if it worth upgrading instead. Contact your dell rep or dell tech support and see what they say

cheers Pete

How do I fix problems of Dell computer 780 with power light yellow and black screen?


getnet,
What do the diagnostic led lights show. The diagnostic LEDs are located on the front of the chassis next to the power button. These diagnostic LEDs are only active and visible during the POST process. Once the operating system starts to load, they turn off and are no longer visible. Below is the manual that provides information on what the led pattern shows to help resolve the issue.

If the power LED is flashing amber, there may be an issue with the power supply, if it is solid amber then the motherboard itself (or if it has an expansion card in a slot, maybe the card)

What is the flashing amber light and how can i fix it on my own


Flashing Amber light might indicate that the power supply is not working correctly. Replace the power supply.
I found a website that sells them and they have pictures to see how the power supply looks like. Open your computer and see which one you have and look around for the best deal.

I have a Dell Optiplex 210L when i push the power button a solid amber light appear.. thanks any suggestion


Click here to visit dell support. The documentation provides details about the light codes and diagnostic procedure.

I think it is a power issue, which is usually indicated by amber light on dell systems. I came accross dell systems with similar indication and the issue was improper voltage either due to faulty power supply or bad connection.
Therefore, i suggest that: -
First, make sure that the connections and voltage to your system is proper.
Also, get the power sully unit checked by a professional for its proper functioning. I may require repair or replacement.

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps!

Amber light flicks once or twice no sound from fan or anything? What do we need to do


If the power button is a solid amber it is likely a motherboard due to a failed capacitor (Check the capacitors on the motherboard see if any tops are bulging)
If flashing amber, most likely a failed power supply

MY DELL IS OPTIPLEX 760SFF, IT NOT BOOTING, SHOWING AMBER LIGHT ON THE POWER BUTTON WHEN PLUG TO POWER.


Hi,
If this the light is solid amber in the front of the computer.Try doing the following steps

1. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the system tower. Press the power button on the tower 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the power cable to the back of the system tower and power it back on.

If the amber light is on the monitor power button and the tower power button is off or blinking amber it could mean that it is a bad power supply.
