    Have you tried removing the cable to power supply, removing battery, press power button, re-install battery, reconnect power supply, power up normally?

This flashing LED means only one thing, and it is quite harmless:

Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

good luck.

    CLARIFICATION:

    with your laptop, there are two possibilities.

    This flashing LED usually means only two things, both are quite harmless:



    1. Some laptops will flash the power LED when battery is charging. If
    this is the case, it should stop when battery is fully charged. This
    can be presumed if the laptop starts normally while LED flashes. If
    not, suspect step 2 below:



    2. Your
    laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does
    this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must
    simply "wake the laptop up" now:



    Look for a symbol on keyboard
    for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH
    whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key).
    If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few
    seconds.



    Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.



    If
    this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds.
    Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start
    laptop normally.



    Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.



    If
    this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI
    settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power
    management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and
    hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)



    good luck.

This is a major problem that crippled Dell. Moels Optiplex Gx260, Gx 280, and Dimensions of whose mdel number i don't remember have this problems. This signal shows that either a power supply or your motherboard is malfunctioning. If you have an insurance better use it now or else get some technical assistance.

Powerbutton flashing yellow


If the main power button LED is flashing or solid yellow, this could indicate a hardware problem.

 

Was it running good before?

 

Are the diagnostic LED lights all green?

 

Here is what dell says:

 

If the power light is blinking amber  —

 The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.

  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Do you remember what the BSOD said?
