Amber light is flashing on my computer and it won't turn on at all. Help!


The Dell Dimension 300 gets the amber blinking light when there is power to the computer (the power supply) but the motherboard isn't getting the correct power. Sometimes it can indicate a motherboard fault or that the power supply is not set to the correct incoming voltage.

Check the back of the computer. If the power supply has a switch for incoming voltage, make sure that it matches your incoming voltage. Next check that the main power cable (20 or 24 pins depending on the computer) is fully seated on the motherboard. (It can only be connected one way and should lock onto the connector on the motherboard.)

Next check that the power supply is providing the correct power. You can simply install another power supply (known to work on another computer). Make sure that the PSU is correctly sized for the computer components. Alternatively use a multimeter or a dedicated power supply tester or put it in a different machine.

If the problem is not cured with a new PSU, the motherboard has a failure. Unfortunately, it's difficult to identify the exact bad component. (If a major component other than the CPU on the motherboard had failed, the diagnostic lights or beep codes could help identify the issue.)

I hope this helps.

Why does my computer keep freezing? Then it comes alive after a bit and keeps doing it. I restart and It is good for a week or so.


try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps

Dell Dimension 9200 keeps shutting down and won't start up


the key issue on the uncommanded shutdown is the POWER LED. If upon shutdown, the power LED Flashes AMBER, then the power supply is suspect.

If no flashing amber indication, then the next think I check is the heatsink (Processor overheating) remove, clean and apply arctic Silver heat transfer paste, see if the issuje goes away

Last but not least if the system is failing to boot, and displays a 3 4 diag LED code, then you may have a RAM module that is bad or may just need reseating. Running diags off of the Rersoujrce CD is something to look at too

Windows XP won't start


The amber light is the error light on a Dell. It can mean a few things. 1. RAM has went bad, not properly seated. 2. Video card has went bad or come unseated. 3. Power supply is not working properly; or 4. Motherboard has went bad. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Amber Light and fan running


1st thing, disconnect everything but keyboard mouse and monitor, see if anything changes.

If the issue persists, ensure that all power and card connections for the motherboard are tight and secure. If you've added RAM or other parts, remove them. Reseat the RAM in the motherboard that came from Dell.

If none of those ideas have any effect on the issue, replace the motherboard.
