    Thank you soo much :-)

    Here is comp info for you (to the best of my knowledge)!

    'HIPER' Power supply (220-240V) : HPU-4S425-PK 425 watts (NEW)

    'GIGABYTE' Motherboard : GA-K8NS Pro (AMD Athlon 64 processor - socket 754)

    'SEAGATE' Hard Drive : BARRACUDA 7200.10 250 Gbytes (only put into the machine 6 monts ago)


    'NVIDIA' Graphics - FX5500 - TD256

    Sorry, i couldn't see much on the Graphics card, so i hope the info is ok!?

    I have disconnected all of the power supply leads again and tried just connecting the main power cable on the motherboard and also the lead for the led's on the front of the machine. For a couple of seconds, the fan on the CPU started spinning, but then just as quickly stopped again! I have tried again a few times and nothing is happening again, only the flashing lights on the keyboard!! Don't know if this will help at all? I have taken off some of the leads to the Motherboard (extra USB ports), so the only things connected to the motherboard now are: the Hard Drive(connected by the Red 'SATA' cable), 2 DVD's and 1 Floppy Drive and the Power switch and LED's for the front of the tower. PCI Slots: Modem (HP156A3) and the Graphics card.

    I hope this information helps and Thank You again for helping me :-)

Yes but there is a error then somewhere, because the keyboard is displaying it as being a error I would assume.

now is it possible for you to take a picture inside you computer for me? just would like a nice picture to help you out a bit and if possible what you have in it,

power supply name ect
motherboard name ect
hard drive name ect
Ram installed
video card name and model

and maybe we can get the thing going quicker by cutting out a few steps.

I will help ya till it works.

    ok lets try this.

    1. Make sure all your wire connections inside you computer are tight and non of the wires are frayed or bent really bad.

    2. remove the video card, make sure that there is the 4 and 8x notches on the card if its a 2x card then its not supported by this motherboard.

    3. Refer to page 96 of you manual to make sure that your Fpanel is properly installed correctly. (you can remove all the wires from this for testing. and only have the pwr cable plugged into the board to make sure you have it in the right pins.) if you need the manual please go the following link. Click Here

    4. There is a ram LED on the right hand side of the motherboard this should be on while the computer is on if there is no power on that the the motherboard needs to be getting power. And currently is not receiveing power.

    5. There is also a small LED beside the video card as well when the video card is installed go 1/3 of the width of the card and look on the motherboard and it should be right there.

    • Turn off the power and unplug the AC power cable, then remove allof the add-on cards and cables from motherboard.

    • Please make sure all jumper settings (such as CPU system bus

      speed, frequency ratio, voltage and etc) are set properly.

    • Check if the CPU cooling fan attached to CPU properly. ls

      CPU cooling fan power connected to CPU_FAN


    • Check if the memory install properly into the DIMM slot.

    • Insert the VGA card. Then plug in ATX power cable and

      turn on the system.

    1. Is memory LED on and CPU fan running? if you said no then

      The problem could be caused by power s u p p l y , C P U ,

      memory or CPU/memory socket itself.

    2. Check if there is display. if nothing there then Perhaps your VGA card / VGA slot or monitor is defective.

    3. Turn off the system and re-connect the IDE cable. Check

      if the system can reboot successfully.

    I hopeing to see inside your computer cause maybe just out of a shot in the dark I might be able to notice something out of the norm.

    Lets start with these steps and we will from there.

    let me know how the progress goes, nice power supply but ya if you can take the video card and shoot me the model ect on it then I can further find out more for you.

Single blue light flash then nothing

your computer power supply or motherboard is dead. I'd bring it in to a computer store for repairs/parts replacement. (if it's not under warranty, of course).

Orange light flashing, no chargine

A replacement battery must be the EXACT same power spec as the original in DC volts and Milliamps, or you could damage the Mobo components. Some aftermarket batteries do not work well. The connections may be different.

The computer won't boot Windows 7. It starts up fine, with the fans running with the LED lights on. Then I get an error message: "CD-ROM Boot Priority ..No Medium" I have checked the bios of...

It sounds like either Windows 7 did not install properly or you have a bad hard drive. I did some research on similar problems and most people have also tried to change the boot priority with no luck. If your are tech savvy I would try to run hard drive diagnostics and possibly reinstall Windows 7. If you are not very technical I would suggest taking it to a competent pc repair technician.

When I turn on my pc i get a yellow flashing light

Hello Leaha_6, Unfortunately that flashing yellow light is the Dell indicator that there is an internal power problem, usually with the power supply. Before replacing anything you may want to unplug the computer, open the case, and re-seat all of the power cables inside. That might help. The next step would be to replace the power supply. Post a reply if you have any further questions. Thanks!! Edward

Hi Charlie, Thank you for your quick reply, The problem is I do not know how to check to see if it is a problem with the battery or if it is with the power cord. Although I am going off of the assumption...

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Power light on front of computer is flashing - quick blinks

Most desktops require you to hold the off or power button down for at least 5 seconds, or more, before it will actually turn of the power. If you don't you won't get the desktop to turn off properly and when you try to turn it on again, you will get a message to the effect that the PC was not properly turned off last time, and it will give you the option to turn it on in Safe Mode, Safe with DOS prompt, or Safe with networking or ... finally, normal mode. If all you did was not turn the power off holding the button for a minimum of 5 seconds, then turning it on normaly is okay to do.
