Hello,
For solving your problem do the following:
1. Check that the power cable is connected properly to the monitor
2. See that the SMPS of the CPU is working
3. Check that the power output from the SMPS is upot 12V

If not change the SMPS it may be due to failure of SMPS.

Green light wont come on


Is unit running? Orange switch - is that the fast freeze switch? If on and running, green light faulty. If nothing happening, start with fuse, test the switch and make sure power is to the thermostat.

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

No power only orange power light


Hi, It most likely is a faulty power supply or a motherboard issue. Remove the power cord then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. This will release any static buildup that might be in the computer and sometimes that causes it not to boot. If nothing is happening it is more likely your power supply than the motherboard.

Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.

My Laptop does not turn on.


That orange light is usually an indication that the battery is not working properly. If you turn the computer on and take the battery out and put it back in it the yellow light might turn off. There is another indication that you have something in the power settings that might need to be set properly. Check in the control panel>power settings and see if the battery and power settings are okay. Also, sometimes the mute on the volume might be on. Lastly, I had a laptop that never turned on and when the hardrive was taken out and the power was turned on it still did nothing until it was turned off and the harddrive was put back in then turned on again.
