Hi.
My computer when I'd turn it on used to be a green light, but lately it's blinking very slowly and is a dull orange colour. Nothing is wrong with the computer itself though. I tried changing the PSU cable to see if that would do anything, but it didn't.
My motherboard is an AMD Asus F2A55-M LK2 and my processor is an AMD A4-5300 if that helps any.
I tried to Google the problem, but all I got up was info for a Dell PC and mine is custom built.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi all, I bought a U41-70 only a few months ago. Just recently, while I plug in my laptop to charge, the battery indicator shows status charging. However, the LED indicator stays orange and slowly blinking (light is on for 3-4 sec then blinks and so on). And the battery percentage won't increase as well. I have looked into Lenovo settings but the Power Status tab says AC adapter is attached and the main battery condition is Good. Do you have any idea what is happening here or any suggestions?

Yesterday, I was just sitting there watching TV at my computer desk, with the computer on, next thing I know- I look over and the computer was shutdown. I didn't know why, so then I go to turn it on, it will not turn on- and the power button, that should be green, starts blinking orange. I'm not sure what the problem is, I think something might be dead. I have been getting a message that says "Alert! System Battery Voltage Low" for about 2 years, I'm not sure if that would be it or not (Maybe that died? Would that do it? I don't know).

When I try to turn it on, I can see the fan and stuff turn on for about half a second, then everything just turns off except for the mobo light and the orange blinking light. I've tested my brothers working power supply in mine, so I know that mine still works because that didn't fix it. I've taken the graphics card out, that didn't do it either. I don't know what else I could do, please help somebody, I'm lost without my computer... Thank you.

Hello everyone this is my first post here. I own a dell optiplex 745 with a core2duo 1.8 Ghz processor, 2 gb RAM and have also added an XFX HD 5550 to it. I have been using it since almost two years, and it hasn't caused me many problems except this blinking orange power light.
The problem is just this that the desktop just won't start. All that happens is that the power light just blinks orange. This has happened to it almost four times in the last two years, and the problem has seemingly resolved itself the last four times. Well it would go something like this: I would turn off the PC normally, and the next time i started it all i would get is this blinking light. Then after a couple of days or hours, I would try again and it work as if nothing had happened. But this time it happened four days ago. I turned it off, then switched it on but i got the orange light. Since then, I have tried so many times but this time I fear something much bigger has happened.
Now I have done a decent amount of work in trying to figure out whats the problem. The key thing to note is that its not my PSU (yes i used a different one). Does this mean it's my motherboard which is causing the problem? Or is it something else?
I did a bit of digging up on the internet for the same problem, and I saw one which said something about a faulty power on button       http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-the-Dell-OLOD-Orange-Light-Of-Death/

A:Optiplex 745 Blinking Orange Power Light

According to the Dell manual this is either a power supply or motherboard problem.  It doesn't detail how to further troubleshoot.
Do you get any diagnostic lights? or beeps when you power it on.
But, you can remove the video card to see if the symptom changes.  If not, reseat the memory as a next step.
If neither of these help you are back to either the replacement power supply or a motherboard problem.

Hi,

I have a Dell Dimension E521, it started a few days ago when it was running smooth, one day I turned it off. When I tried to turn it on a day later it wouldn't display an image on the monitor.

The computer power ups fine, the fans are blowing strong like usual on start up but do not stop blowing hard. Its like it gets stuck at the start up stage.

The power button flashes orange, while all components work in the computer, I have took out unnecessary parts such as CD ROMS etc.

I have checked all fans and every thing seems to be ok, but it wont display any image. (the monitor will not come out of standby)

Before I used to take out a random part and some how it would work after I plug it out and in again (switching power by mains off worked first, then taking the Ethernet cable out worked, then taking the ram out worked). This is quite random and I cannot think what it could be. I have taken everything out and pluged it all back in again, double checking all cables are correct and all devices are working correctly.

Please help me.

Dimension E521 is the model of my Dell Computer.

2 GB RAM

9600 GeForce Graphics Card

Hi, I have a y50-70 that has been working pretty smoothly for the last two years. I am studying abroad in Italy and was told that my charger should have a built in power adapter, however when plugging into the outlet via an outlet adapter it immediately made a popping sound and started smoking. The charger was a replacement which had been working fine for about a year in the states, but I just assumed that this one didn't have the built in adapter and I drew too much power and fried it. I ordered a new charger specified for my model from amazon Italy (with European plugs) in hopes that it would work....but no luck, and he charger is making a consistent soft hissing sound when plugged in. I am also getting a blinking orange battery light when plugged into the charger, but this is the only form of response I'm getting from my computer.  After reading around my best bet is that I've blown a fuse or fried the battery but I wanted to see if anyone had a more confident diagnosis before I go shooting in the dark. Any thoughts?  Thanks,sam

Hi I made a thread yesterday regarding a minor PC problem I had while trying to install windows XP on my uncles PC the problem was solved thankfully.

I now have an even bigger problem of my own with my PC.
I turned my PC on in the evening and the monitor screen was blank and displayed a blinking orange light, the fan does come on. I doubled checked the wires to see if any were loose but everything is inserted correctly.

What’s weird is the PC that I was installing windows on yesterday was doing the same thing but once you turn it off and turn it back on it would be fine and load windows.
But my one is not even doing that, there is nothing wrong with the monitor has I have brought it recently and I also checked the PC using my brother’s monitor and the same thing happens.

Once I finished installing windows on my uncles PC I turned my PC on and watched highlights of a soccer game so it actually was working last night. But I have no clue as to what has happened?
Can someone please help me?

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 press the power button and nothing happen, I press it for 3 seconds and nothing happen. I even did the HDMI connection to another monitor, but both monitors don't show anything, not even recognize that something is connected to the HDMI port in the new monitor.

If that doesn't help and you purchased it directly from Dell, contact Dell Support right away. Within the first 30 days from invoice date (not delivery date) you can send it back. Then order another one from their sales site.

Currently my PC completely died and every time I try to plug in the charger the light simply blinks a few times and nothing happens. HELP!'

A:Charger blinking orange but computer won't charge

Blink orange is an indication of : The battery has reached a low battery level, a critical battery level , or there is a battery error. Try the following steps Shut down the system and disconnect all the external devices connected to the PC.Disconnect the AC power from the wall outlet. Remove the battery from its compartment.Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds continuously.Now put back the battery & reconnect it to the AC power wall outlet. If the notebook it coming on try performing battery test using F2 diagnosis?s. Turn off you unit ? restart ? keep tapping esc at startup Press F2 from the status up list and perform a battery test. Depending on the results we may suggest you. Please click on the below link to view the steps. http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/content-webapp/document?docId=emr_na-c01443317

Hey,

Nice job that you have tested other RAM modules in your Portege notebook because this would my first suggestion testing other RAM modules? :)

In my opinion it?s a serious hardware malfunction like mainboard or CPU but without special diagnostic tools it?s not possible to say more about this especially on this virtual way. So you must get in contact with an authorized service provider and ask for help. The guys have good diagnostic tools and can help you to get rid of this.

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.

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

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.

Does the system correctly sense the AC adapter, or is it showing unknown (F2 at powerup to check)?
If you need further assistance, post the system model information and age as well.

I Have an acer Aspire 5610 Windows XP.
I am connected online with an ethernet cable. After my daughter fiddled with my computer occasionally the orange ethernet light stays on and i cannot connect. I run the 'diagnose connection problems' and it automatically restores connectivity. Why is this happening and can i prevent this from happening in future?

hi all

i have had a hp laserjet 6mp working in the office for years without issue but...

now it has just stopped and the orange light (the top light of the three on the left hand top) just stays on.

i have searched for the user manual to find out what the light means - but i cant find it anywhere so does anyone know what it means?

any help would be very welcome and happy christmas to you all!
