    Same here. Even without drive cabled in to computer (parallel port) amber light is on solid and unable to eject disk manually. If it helps in any way, drive is no longer recognized by the computer.

Inspiron 518 - intermittent power up, amber light blinks once and then stays off


Usually if it has boot issues it is from the ram memory ..specially if it does like you said ..only ask for repeated action when it is cold..So , check the ram memory to be well plugged in ..and if you made changes , check for the specs on the newer ram module and be sure it is not on a higher speed or so ..cause it will not read it well and issues will be caused by it ..
another thing can be some bad points on the hard disk ..and if you get a bad on the system it may fail to load for good..The idea is to reinstall the operation system from scratch using a boot-able disk ..and this may fix the issue for the moment ..until it will be stuck with a system file in a weak point ..
The reinstalling is recommended also in case you added more ram memory and never reinstalled This action will force the computer to recognize the ram memory in proper way and run better ..
If you see it is always makes issues when you put it to sleep mode or shut down ..you may enable the hibernate mode (from the power management panel ..(somewhere near the screen saver settings in the desktop properties ) ..and after that select for the actions when you press the main button to go to hibernate mode..This mode will always save what you have running and it is slightly different from the shut down cause it saves the running program and teh configuration used on moment ..and just load back the same way ..and it may force it to use the same points on the hard disk all over again when it starts ..
I used this mode on computers with hard disk issues and it always worked better than starting over again ..
I hope it was helpful and please do not forget to rate my answer ..
Have a good day !

Solid orange light on my vostro 200


If your fans come on full blast then you have a bad motherboard. If the amber light blinks, you have a bad power supply.

Dell Dimension 2400 with steady amber power light and diagnostic lights of ABC green and D off. What could be the problem?


Steady amber power LED is indicative of a problem with the motherboard. Remove all external connections except power, remove all PCI Cards, ram, disconnect power from all drives, turn on see if power LED is still steady amber. If it is, more than likely the motherboard has a failure. Also check to see if the CPU heatsink is firmly seated (The plastic retainer has been known to fail causing the CPU to overheat)

Hi - My 2wire 1701 gateway has steady green power light and steady local network light but the broadband link light is steady amber. My computer is receiving the WiFi signal but I cannot get any internet...


The broadband link light tells you the status of the connection between the modem and the broadband servers in your area. Green means everything is A-Ok while amber means your modem is not picking up a broadband signal.

Try turning the modem off and on and also make sure the cables are secure while you're at it. If the broadband light is still amber, the only thing you could do next is to call your internet service provider.
