It means it has a "Power Supply Problem" If you have a warranty contact Dell Customer Service at 1-800-624-9897. Look on computer to find your "Service Tag" then go here to see if you are still covered under warranty:

My Dell optiplex 330 is not getting on only cpu's red light is flashing..


I am assuming you mean the power light is flashing, probably amber.

Here is a link that explains the codes.

A flashing amber light usually means there may be a power problem or an internal device malfunction. See the link.

Hello, you can download the manual here: http://www.plantronics.com/us/media/media-resources/literature/user_guides/73156-01_CS55_US_DL.pdf?WT.dl=20 It says that a flashing amber light means charging, a solid amber light means charged, a solid red light means power, a solid green light means talking, and a blinking green light means muted.

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.

Amber colored power light on eMachine W3503


The amber power light indicates that your computer has been "sleeping" or "hibernating" and usually all it takes to restart the computer is tapping a key on the keyboard. If this is not the case, try holding the Power switch down for 6-10 seconds to force the system off. Restart in Safe Mode and try to find the settings for Sleep/hibernate, open the control panel and open the Screen Saver. Select "Change Power Settings" and set it for "Never" on sleep and hybernate.

Can't boot up Dell 5100 Dimension, amber light flashes


When you mean the amber light, is that the blinking hard drive access light or the power light? Different cases have different colors on it. Mine has blue and green lights.

If you see the boot screen (bios) and then after it goes to boot, does it blink and hang?

This could be a simple operating system issue, hard drive or hardware/motherboard issue. If you could provide more information, that would help.

Blinking Amber light on the tower


If it is one the front near the power button, it indicates power supply is failing...and other indicator is the motherboard is failing.
Now if it is in the rear where the ethernet cable hooks up...solid amber means you are connected, blinking amber means activity on the line...no problem there- very normal. I hope it is in the rear.
Please leave rating, thank you
