Dell optiplex gx520 flashing yellow light on motherboard


According to the information you gave it seems it can still be the RAM. I've had a few PC's unable to startup due to bad memory.

Either that or the the front panel conectors are wrongly connected. Sometimes they do have a color code, but it's best to reference the manual. Can be the button . . .

If this is no help, I'd like to know more.

A solid orblinking Amber power button indicates a voltage problem. This can be caused bya defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure thatnothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, videocard, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables toCD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Power button is a steady yellow/amber color and pc will not boot up. Whats wrong?


Hi,

Usually a power surge causes this.

Remove the power cord from the back of the computer. Then open the side casing of the tower and unplug the 24 pin block connector from the motherboard. The 24 pin block connector looks like this >>>>>

Once removed press the on/off button on the computer to dispel and residual power from the motherboard.
Then connect the block connector again and put the side panel back on and then plug the power cord back in and try to boot the computer up.

If its still the same then the power supply inside the computer may need replacing.


Good luck.

THe pc gives a steady orange light when power


Sounds like its in either standby or hibernate. Try unplugging it if it wont power on, press the power button, wait for 2 minutes then plugging it back in then turn it on. Afterwards, go into power managment, and find where it asks what do when you press your power button change from hibernate/standby to ask what to do.
