Don't worry! The amber light is normal on most motherboards unless it is flashing. First, make sure that you have all of the basic components installed on your motherboard. Also be sure that the video cables in the back are connected correctly to your computer and monitor. You may want to try it on another monitor as well. If the problem persists the make sure you have a graphics card installed as well. If the problem still persists then re-seat the components on the motherboard and try again. Also, be sure that your power supply is installed to all of the parts correctly and that it has enough power for your machine.

My computer won't display anything on the screen, the power button is an amber color and the CPU fan is extremely loud. This is on a Dell Precision Workstation 670


Normally when the CPU fan gets very loud it is because of an accumulation of dust. It cant revolve fast enough to cool your CPU so it will want to close down.
You need to open up the computer and blow the dust off the fan blades, preferably with an air spray can. Report back when you have done this!

Monitor switch always return to Sleeo Mode


You can open the VGA cable and connect it again, sometimes there are two or three vga ports behind your cpu, connect the right one. Try it, if not success, change the cable.

Monitor will not display desktop, however, it does display have multi-colored vertical lines throughout.


You have eliminated the CPU/Video card as a problem so you should try changing the video cable.
There is a good chance that the cable is bad if the multi-colored lines you are describing is the "test pattern". So swap out the cable and see if that fixes it. If that doesn't fix the problem and the monitor won't work with another CPU, it looks like you are going to need a new monitor.

Monitor does not activate when computer is turned on - it goes blank - when you press a button on the front of the monitor it states that the computer is in in sleep mode press any key to activate - the...


Hello,
May be the problem comes from the Cpu.
Try to see if the cable from the monitor is firmly connected to the cpu.
One thing more may be the vga card is having problem.
Try to test the screen with another Cpu. Or the cpu with another monitor.
The amber mode is normal as the screen is not receiving signal from the cpu.
At times the memory chip also report this problem (no display or sleep mode)
Do hear any beep sound or any other Errors??
OK try this
Cheers Uttam

My monitor will not come on, the on/off light flashes occasionally and the monitor gives over a very brief light


make sure that your cpu is working. if the cpu is dead, there will be no display in the monitor. If the monitor light is flashing as you said, it could be the CPU not sending video signal to the monitor. also check if the cpu beeps when you start your computer. if not, check your cpu. try to re-seat your RAM modules. this will solve most of these types of problems

Change the colour


CLICK HERE for a PDF copy of your owner's manual.

Page 17 States to change the display color -

You can change the lighting color of the following four buttons:
SOURCE/POWER, BAND, (left << arrows) and (right >> arrows).

the color of the four buttons is BLUE/GREEN, the others are also
GREEN.

No display (black) - power light is amber color


The video signal is not reaching your monitor, check the pins on the connector from the monitor to the computer, then check the video card:

Turn off your computer, unplg the power, and then take out the video card. Wait 5 minutes and then put the card back into the computer and turn it on. For onboard video; turn off the computer, unplug the power, then hold down the power button on the front for 5-10 seconds, then plug back in and turn on.

Make sure the video card is snug in the AGP/PCI slot. If this is built-in video, try borrowing a video card from another computer and install it in this one. If the borrowed card works, then replace you card. If video is built in, then you can disble the onboard video and use the new card without having to replace your motherboard.

Can't find video signal


If screen says "Signal cable not connected " all the time till power led switches to Amber chances are monitor is ok and problem is with graphic card or cpu.Connect to Known working CPU and confirm that monitor is the problem.
If same problem persists on another working cpu after changing signal cable,the interface board in the monitor could be defective.
