Q: orange light on touchpad won't turn off

The orange light on my touch pad will not turnoff but the pointer still works. I switch back a nd forth using a mouse and my touchpad but prefer to not see the orange light on my touchpad. How do I get the light to turn off? I have already tried tapping in the left corner of the touch pad and nothing happens. It is still on. Please advise an option to help with this issue. Thanks.

I know this is a trivial matter, but it annoys me so here goes:I had to reinstall Win7 on my laptop. There are two lighted buttons in the top-right corner of the keyboard: one for wifi and one for audio. The wifi button turns orange when I turn it off and back to white when on, but the audio button won't switch colors, it stays white. It does work eg. I can mute or turn audio on with it. Any thoughts?

Hi I've had the Dell XPS 8700 for over a year now and it's an excellent Desktop.
I've recently moved my tower to a new location and notice there is a solid orange light on all the time inside the PC, I believe it's on the motherboard... should I be worried this is on all the time? It's just I've never noticed it before.
Also on the back of the PC there is a solid green light, I'm guessing this is to just tell me the PC has Power.
I tried a google search but everyone with the orange light seems to have PC issues, my pc is working fine as far as I can tell.

A:Dell XPS 8700 Orange Light inside and Green Light on Back

LED on the motherboard will be on as long as the PC is plugged into a working outlet. It's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
If you unplug the PC from the wall and press/hold the power button for ~15 sec, that LED will go off. Again, perfectly normal...
Green LED says there's power to the PSU.

I started my inspiron today and the battery light was flashing orange, no other colors. I restarted my computer and it works just fine, the only problem being the light still flashing. I plug in the adapter and the battery panel says it's not charging. All my settings that usually change when charging (brightness, wallpaper slideshow changing) change just as normal.
Everything else is working fine, and as of now my battery doesn't even seem to be going down. I'm not entirely sure what's happened-- my computer has been sitting in my room since I last used it last night, so it's not like any hardware could've been damaged from transporting it.
Anyway if I could get some advice that would be awesome.

ok, so i have a DELL DIMENSION E521. It will not boot up, however it sounds like it is as i can hear fans. The status light on the motherboard is orange, as is the light on the desktop casing. This is all that happens, the monitor,mouse,keyboard and speakers do not power up at all.

This started happening 5 months ago, however iv'e managed to get around it... id turn the power off/on constantly (rather frustrating) in hope that it'll power up and the light will turn green. This worked a few times, sometimes turning back on much sooner then expected. Needless to say, when it does happen to boot i leave it on as long as i can. ( 29 days at one point) Also, when it does happen to boot up, everything works perfect and i have no problems going about my computer-shinaniagans. You'd think there was no problem at all. Which confuses me, if something was wrong inside surely it would affect using the computer?

Following previous advice i replaced the PSU with an identical dell branded one. This solved nothing. Everything was just the same. I've also removed hardware trying to pin point the problem, again solving nothing. I even removed battery in vein.

So here i am. I must have attempted booting my PC up to 200 times yesterday! Whilst it could happen to turn on if i keep at it.... I'd rather try figure out the actual problem. I also would like to remain sane!

Thanks for reading, any help would be much appriciated x

Hi HitDat,
Thanks for writing to us. Do you see green light on the PSU at the rear side? Ensure the power cable is plugged in properly as well as the PSU connector on the motherboard is tightly secured. Re-seat the memory modules one by one and try with one module at a time and check. Regarding the data on hard drive, we would suggest to take the drive to a local store and get it backed up, or you can try the HD on another machine if possible and if it recognizes, you can back up the same.
do provide us your system tag#, email address and name via private message.

All right, I'm new here, but my HP desktop Pavilion A6560 is new, too, and today on being turned on, the tower had an orange light next to its usual blue "on" light, with "no signal" going on the monitor as it seemed to try three times to boot up successfuly. When it did, finally, the orange light flickered for awhile, slowly eased off. Is this an overheating issue? Vista's "Advisor" program meanwhile is saying it's "critical" I make some systems recovery disks--which it only lets one do once--but doesn't say how many CDs this would require; does anyone know? Seems a good idea, if the orange light is a danger sign. It has been hot around here today--90 degrees out, maybe 80 in the home-office room--but sounds from the people onboard here that that wouldn't be causing the problem. Please help; HP's tech people didn't seem to understand. I 'm hoping the orange light is not a motherboard-out signal like the red light on my previous HP, which died.

Hi everyone, strangest thing happened this morning...

Ok so i was sitting down watching a video on my computer, and then i got hungry and i paused the video and made some cereal, i came back into my room to find my computer with an orange light glowing, and the monitor was black and not recieving any input...

I have a gateway that i got from an old friend, and so now i can't turn on or off the computer with the button, i plug in the cord to the power supply and the computer turns on automatically with an orange light, and it can't be shut off without pulling out the power supply cord...
i tried unplugging the supply from everything except the motherboard to see if maybe i was overloading it, but nope still same reaction.. so then i took an extra power supply i had, and it did the same exact thing, tried one more supply, same thing.. again!
i was plugging the supply into an extension, (6 outlets on one box thing) and so i thought maybe it wasn't recieving enough electricty, so i plugged it into the wall and it still did the same thing... but i know the video card still works because i tried it on another computer, and i know the ram is fine, and i can't figure what it is, because i tried 3 different power supplies and NONE of them worked! oh and i know my hard drives are in good condition, so i need some help!

Hi guys, I have a dell xps 400 that I can't get started. It happened out of nowhere when one day I tried to turn it on and the power button blinked orange and the computer wouldn't boot up. Also, above the power button was a small lit up green "3".

First I tried disabling each hardware component in the computer. I started by unplugging the roms, then the harddrive, then the graphics card, then individually taking out the ram and the pci cards. None of this changed anything. The power still flashed orange. That narrowed things down quite a bit so I decided I would try putting in a new power supply, which I thought was the root of the problem in the first place.

Well I just put in a new PSU to no avail. The computer still won't turn on, HOWEVER, instead of a blinking orange power button, now I have a non blinking orange power button. Also the green "3" that was originally lit up isn't anymore. I switched back to the old PSU just to see if maybe the light would stay a solid orange. It don't. It goes right back to blinking with a green 3.

Anyone have some insight for me? Shot motherboard?

1. Plug the computer into a power strip that has an on/off switch. Turn the power strip on. Press the computer power on button to start as normal, but after after one second turn off the power strip switch just long enough for the fans on the computer to slow down, but the amber computer led doesn't turn off and then turn the power strip switch back on. Computer should start and run fine. Computer typically can be shut down for up to 5 minutes and restarted normally--any longer and you have to sue the power strip power switch routine again.Click to expand...
