Blinking yellow/amber light indicates PS not operating within specs. You can look at replacing the PS but might need to find out if something else caused the PS problem, such as other components caused the PS to overheat, etc. Were you having any problems with any of the drives? Strange noises etc?

Power button flashes yellow and goes out


This is tricky, I would say this is a software problem since it occured while installing drivers. However on the overside of the coin it could be a hardware problem that caused the freeze in the first place.

Take a look at my published guide entitled:
My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

This may help with your troubles.

Take care!

Hi,
If you are referring to the green light on the system tower and is blinking the problem could be the system is in stand by mode.

Turn off the computer by pressing on the power button on the system tower for 10 seconds.

Disconnect the black power cord at the back of the system tower and then again press the power button on the tower for 10 seconds. There would be no activity on the tower when you do this.

Reconnect the power cord and then power on the computer to see if the issue is resolved.

I have a dell dimension desktop. It won't turn


open the tower//
check for any loose connection of the cord of Hard drive and power unit//
better option is take out the wires one-by-one and refix it//
if this does not work then probably the SMPS has gone bad and needs to be replaced..SMPS is the power unit which supplies power to all the component.
during all this process please alwaws make sure that when you put ur hand in the tower then the power cord should be out , otherwise you can get power shock.

If the POWER Button on the TOWER is blinking AMBER (Yellow) then the most likely failure point is the POWER SUPPLY in the Tower.

Desktop monitor


Hi

Disconnect the monitor from the tower and then turn on the monitor.
If u get a msg like no input signal or check video cable then the monitor is fine. If this is the case, it could be a problem with the tower or the cable.
