you could try opening the case after unplugging the power from the wall, then disconnect power supply from the Motherboard. then hold the pc power button in until the green back light and orange light go out. then reconnect power supply to motherboard. Plug the power back in to the wall and see if the pc turns on. Hope this helps

The problem is with SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supply) of your PC. Replace the SMPS

Pc wont boot up, instead a red light flickers.


Flickering LED means power supply is overloaded with something. It might be inside of the supply, but sometimes it is something else. Try that:
1. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except power supply and power button;
2. Disconnect all power connectors from all drives;
2. Remove any cards from the motherboard so all you have is power supply and motherboard with CPU and RAM, nothing else. You can keep connected the monitor and keyboard;
3. Press Power button. Will motherboard turn on normally?

If no - check electrolytic capacitors especially around the CPU, if some of them are "popped" replace them.
If yes - connect drives and cards one per time to localize the problem.

Dell Inspiron 5150. Will not turn on. While plugged in and pushing the power button the battery light turns orange flickers a few times and then nothing.


its not getting power from your power cord, if you have a friend that has a power cord, try theirs. If there's a light on your power cord it should be lit up but still doesn't determine if you cord is bad.

I have a laptop and there seems to be a light currently flashing orange along the front. Ive searched everywhere to find out whats happened but the laptop won't switch on at all. Its a toshiba Prestege...


The flashing light on the front of your laptop is a low battery warning. There probably isn't enough power in the battery to turn on the laptop. You need to plug in the ac power adaptor and let the battery charge until the battery light turns from 'orange', to 'green'.
