Orange light on XPS 8500

Q: Orange light on XPS 8500

I have a 2012 XPS 8500 and when I shut it down, after a couple of seconds of stopping, the power button turns to an orange light. Sometimes when I go to restart the PC it is slow to respond or I have to press the button a couple of times. The PC seems to run OK but a couple of times it did shut off suddenly.
I ran the diagnostics but every time it starts to go through the various tests the PC switches off immediately. Please can someone tell me what the orange light is telling me and what I need to do. The PC is no longer under warranty.

Hi,
When I was playing a game the other day my DELL XPS 8500 froze turning the screen into green and yellow lines as well as freezing the sound into a continuous set of dissonant tomes. I turned the computer off using the power button. When restarting the computer wouldn't start properly.
On restart, the fan starts as usual and the computer appears to be starting normally for the first few seconds, then the HD lamp goes out and nothing more happens. The screen has power but is black all the time. Some USB slots seems to have stopped working while some still appears to work as lights go on on the items attached to them. The mouse seems to actually have been broke. Some lights on the mouse lights up but not the laser underneath. Testing the mouse in another computer gives the same result.
Opening the cover reveals an orange light lit up on the motherboard.
Any help in identifying the problem apreciated
Cheers,/Segelmange

A:XPS 8500 will not start, orange light on motherboard, will not boot, BIOS inaccessible, black screen

Orange LED on motherboard means absolutely nothing.  It only indicates that 5VSB power is available.
Green and Yellow Lines indicate GPU fan failure and overheat damage.
Disconnect the Data Line for the hard drive and turn on.
It should show failure at that point.
If it does not there are other problems.

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.

Have just come back from holiday and powered on my XPS 8500 PC and instead of powering up, I heard 4 beeps in a row and a flashing orange power light. I have searched for the same issue and found a few similar for this model but they were dated back in 2012 and nothing more recent. The machine is significantly out of warranty having been purchased in 2012 and would appreciate any advice as to how I can boot this machine up. HAve never built or opened up a PC before so if that is needed, please can you give some simple guidance,

Hello All,
I have a Dell XPS 8500 tower system.   My original issue started when i got 'no bootable device found' during bootup.  I had updated 3 month before to Win 10.  I changed HD but it did not appear to be the issue.   Put original HD back and modified BIOS several times, which at times it would start successfully but it would crash after a couple of days and i would get 'no boot device found' again.  Now, when i try to start PC, plug in power cord I get amber color light in power button.  Mobo light is also amber color. 
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I was not sure where to post this as I haven't got a clue as too the problem.. thats causing all this mess! My problem is with my Dell Optiplex 745 thats running the OS XP its about an 3 year old computer now. Ok so heres my problem I went to boot it up and all that I got was an solid orange/amber light, which is normally a green light .. it will stay on just long enough to get the disk drives green light to turn on and the fans to run. Also it don't power up long enough to get the monitor to wake up or go in the BIOS. Then it shuts down again.. it has been doing this over and over since yesterday.. I have had the problem in the past.. and to by pass the problem I would open the dish drive door and put in a disk that I use to boot up with in moments like this and it would boot up.. but since then the disk drive has quit reading disks so I cant rely on that like I used too... I contacted my father who I talk to for all my computer problems.. and with him on the phone walking me though the steps of unplugging everything from the back.. done that and nothing.. taking plugs out and then replacing them back in and still nothing... took out the memory cards and checked them one by one and still nothing.. unplugged the disk drive and wouldn't you know still nothing.. even went to as far as taking out the hard drive and making sure that it was running and as it turned out it is running. i even just removed and then replaced the battery and still nothing..

Yesterday my laptop charging light started flashing orange when I plugged in the adapter. (I have to keep it plugged in because the battery dies very quickly) I unplugged the adapter, took out the battery, and held the power button for 30 seconds. It stopped flashing after I replaced the battery and plugged in the adapter....until this morning. Same exact thing! If I use the adapter without the battery, it doesn't flash and works great. What should I do?

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.

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.

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.

I was using my Dell XPS 14z today and the battery light started blinking orange 4 times then white once. It stated that my battery had crashed was no longer charging. I read here that that might be a bios problem so I updated my BIOS to the current one for my system and that was a A06 (according to this website). After flashing the new BIOS, the problem persisted. The Next recommendation was to remove, wait, then replace the battery, but there is no way to remove the battery from this unit. 

My battery health check says it is working normally. However, it is not charging and is still slowly draining even on the AC adapter. Any help?

I had a very similar situation with my Dell XPS 14z. I've got installed A03 bios though.

Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run setup the utility"
To fix it, I entered the BIOS Menu with F2 -> Advance -> Charger Behaviour -> Disabled

Today my neighbor asked me to go over to his house and fix his computer. When i got there he told me it was the power cable that was the problem ( since he doesn't know much about computers) Well the problem with the computer is that all it does is flash an orange light consecutively were the power button green light should be. He recently installed a new CD/DVD drive i so i thought hey that might be the problem but it wasn't. I unplugged the drive and the orange light continue flicker. I then tried to hold the button for a long period of time But it would not shut off. I then decided to unplug the computer directly from the power source in an attempt to stop the light and maybe have the computer boot but it didn't. If i haven't elaborated enough yet i will tell you that the computer will not boot at all no fans are moving nothing. You can see the motherboard have power cause i see the green light indicating the 5 volts but that is it nothing runs but the green light on the motherboard and the DAMNED flickering orange light. if anyone has any suggestions it would be a great help thank you for your time.

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?

My comps internet stopped working while i was away, theo thers still work but mine doesnt. I've updated all the drivers and such, and it hasnt had a problem for a year.

Virus scanned, updated chipset (using a8n-e and onboard network)

Any ideas? The green light is just orange. Tried switching network cords and slots with working ones as well. All I did was reboot while it was working, and now it's not.
