An steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

I suggest it is the mother board or the power supply. Go to the Dell website on a friend's PC and download PDF manuals pertaining to your model. The battery may have enough power to light an LED.

the original working frequency for that monitor is either to high or too low for the grapchics card inside your computer! Try the monitor on other computer and try to reduce or increase the working frequency! Or maybe is just you need a driver for that monitor to work on your pc!

Is there any problem with it?? I think you may be referring to the LAN adapter's blinking green light, if if is blinking while the computer is on and an ethernet cable is plugged in it is perfectly normal... otherwise please elaborate on the problem.

First thing to check is your power supply. Bring it to a computer shop and ask them to test your PSU. It should be free to test or very inexpensive.

Power supply testers are a handy tool for owners of computers as well as having your computer hooked up to a back up power supply to insure you are not subjected to a brown-out, a loss of line voltage, which wreaks havoc on electrical components. If your power cable is good and properly connected and there are no lights on the unit or no beeps or sounds when pressing power button good chance power supply is bad. But if you have never opened up that computer and it is more than a year old, then there could be a fair amount of dust inside and the power bridge on the motherboard could have blown out, if you know what capacitors are there are 5-10 of them towards backside of CPU on motherboard, the tops should be flat and not leaking chemicals out, if they are you need a motherboard, I have not had one come back to life with new capacitors yet, tried 2 so far...

repeatedly press f8 after youve pushed the power button. this will start your pc in safe mode. click the start menu and in the run box type ( msconfig ) only using the letters m,s,c,o,n,f,i,g. then select the startup tab located at the top center of the popup screen. you will then see a list of items with a check mark located next to each of them or just some of them. unchech each one and then hit apply. you will then be prompted to restart your system. let it startup normally. you will get a prompt telling you your system has been changed to a selective startup. just check the box and choose it not to prompt you again. this should allow you to boot up and use your anti virus program to remove the virus threat.

you will no longer see some of the icons in the lower right hand corner of your screen as a result of unchecking those items, but they will still function properly without any issues.
