Q: Power comes on, fan comes on, wifi solid orange, black scree...

When I turn the laptop on, the fan starts, and the power lights come on. Then, the wifi LED lights up and stays solid. The screen stays black. Once that sequence is finished, nothing else happens. Power stays on, fan stays on, power LEDs and wifi LED stay on solid. Caps and numlock LEDs don't come on when pressed. I've tried a hard reset and swapping the memory slot. I'm guessing it's the main board, but I don't want to buy and replace that if it's not the problem.

99% it's the motherboard. Do you have the actual model number of your laptop?

I have a G62 Laptop that will no longer start up.  When I press the power button I can hear the hard drive and CPU fan spin but after that the CAPS LOCK light continuously flashes and the WIFI light remains a solid orange.    I have tried removing the battery and holding down the power button for more than 30 seconds but that didn't help.  I tried removing the RAM sticks and booting up with one of them in at time but still can't get it to go.  I also blew out the fans but that didn't change a thing. I don't know what else to do.  I have read that it might be something with the CPU or the motherboard but I didn't know if there was anything else that I could try out. If anyone has any other suggestions please let me know. Thanks

My Levono ideapad Y700 no longer turns on when I press the power button. The power light turns on and the keyboard backlight turns on when I press buttons on the keyboard, but the screen remains black no matter what I do. Also the small lights on the front of the laptop light up (ones next to the power light and the battery light). Please advise on solution. Thank you.

Thats a power issue, simply "Hard Reset"  by removing the power cable from the laptop and then press and hold the power button for more than 20 seconds. Then wait a few seconds and turn it on simply! If it doesn't work, do it 2-3 times, for me it worked the 3rd time.After that, go to a service centre cuz then it might be a hardware issue!

Purchased this non working computer for $40.  The screen is black, the caps lock light blinks and the wifi light is lit in orange.  At the time you could hear everything boot up in the computer, the fan would run, the harddrive would boot up .... so I watched some videos on black screen problems on youtube, got it up and running.   However it was a tease, it worked for less than a month.  I didnt fix the problem which was over heating.  I did buy quadfans to go underneath it but turned them off at night and shouldnt have.  I scheduled the computer to check for updates at 3am so the computer would come on then and the fans wouldnt.   Well the black screen issue is backkkk.  The fan doesnt start up, the harddrive tries.  This time nothing is fixing it.  Ive torn it down to the motherboard to replace the fan.  I replaced and upgraded the harddrive and memory ... still nothing.   It also has a new battery and power cord.  Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?

Hello,

When I power on my Compaq Presario, the screen remains black, the key next to the power button is orange, the Caps Lock key is blinking and a light blinks above the "home, end, num lock keys", in the upper portion of the keyboard. I have tried taking out the battery, unplugging the power and holding the power button for 60 seconds, before trying it again, and I am not getting anything...HELP!!

Try re-seating the Ram. If that doesn't help remove the Cmos battery for a few minutes then put it back, it looks like a silver coin and should be visible near the ram.

My wife and I were given a laptop that was barely used a few months ago and I've just been using it for Word documents for school. 90% of the time it isn't even online because we have more up to date computers that we use.
Here's the problem: one day a window popped up and said windows wasn't responding and when it was closed everything disappeared from the screen except the wallpaper. The computer was rebooted in safe mode and everything seemed to be good. After restarting from safe mode, the cpu got hung up on the "Welcome" screen. Tried ctrl:alt:delete but nothing happened. Rebooted it and now it's just a black screen. Went back into safe mode and restarted from there and it got hung up on the "Welcome" screen again.
So basically, if the cpu is started up normally it just shows a black screen. Safe mode can be run and when restarted from safe mode, the cpu gets hung up on the "Welcome" screen and doesn't respond to anything.
Nothing new has been installed. Like I said, I use itunes to listen to music while i do stuff in Word and Excel for school. I searched online for solutions, and have seen a lot of the same issues with fixes found. I thought I'd start my own thread and start my troubleshooting step by step through here. I appreciate any help or suggestions. thank you in advance.

A:Black Screen / Hung up on Welcome Scree

When you got the laptop, did you check the anti-virus software on it and be sure to do a full scan? If you had it connected to the Internet with no anti-virus present, or a very outdated version, then your laptop could have become infected. Booting up in SAFE mode is almost 95% guaranteed when dealing with a troubled computer, because it's usually malfunctioning programs or drivers that interfere with normal operation, and those are bypassed in SAFE mode. That is, unless your boot sector has been infected.

My suggestion is to create a bootable disk or USB with your healthy computer and include a copy of Malwarebytes. When booting up off the external media, run Malwarebytes to check for anything faulty.

If by chance you don't have a virus, then you should run the SFC scan to repair any faulty system files.
Open your start menu and in the search box, type Command PromptWhen you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administratorWhen command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each:

sfc /scannow

Wait for this to finish before you continue

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

start notepad.exe %userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
This will open a text file with the results of the scan. Please Copy (Ctrl + C) and Paste (Ctrl + V) the contents of this into your next post.

Hello, I am new here and I realy hope you can help me! I've have the Lenovo Thinkpad S440 (as in the description). It is the model with SSD, i5 U, Intel integrated graphics, 8GB Ram etc. The display which was build in was the HD+ matt model (1600x900 px) I've had some water in bag back pouring into the screen. I tried to fix it and after I disassembled the screen, I got all the water out of it but the backlight was not working anymore. So I ordered a new display. While I was looking for it, I came to the knwoledge, that you can take a replacement screen from the Lenovo Thinkpad T440s, at least considering that most 1600x900px displays seem to be the same for each of them. So I thought: okay, then I should be able to use the 1080p display for the t440s as well, since it also has a 30 pin eDP connector.So I ordered one and put it in my S440 and it fits perfektly. But now the display only gives a really dim short fliker while booting the machine and nothing is viewable, so the display stays completely black. Is there a possibility to fix it or can I only use the 1600x900 px displays on the s440? As I sayd the screen fits perfect and the 30 pin eDP connector also fits perfekt into the new display. If I use an external display via HDMI, the image is shown normal on this external screen. Also it seems that the new internal screen is not recognised, since in the intel graphics options I cannot chose it as the main screen, only if I go for dual screen it is an option. ... Read more

Hi I got a dell 2400mp projector. Righ now, the projector would turn on for a few second, and everything would loades up. It connect to my laptop just fine, and it does project whatever is on my laptop. However, after a few mintues. The projector would turn off, and all I got is the solid orange light says "lamp."
I rebooted the projector a few times and same things happens every time. I can get it to load up for a few mintues but it eventurally shuts off by itself. And all I got is the solid orange lamp light.
Does that mean I have to replace the lamp now?

thanks.

Hard to describe. I can see most things and use the laptop. However, the appearance is not right. Where I should see some color or gradations, I am seeing only black and white. Photos are rendered properly. In Thunderbird, although I have it set to show my text in green, I can only get black. Another example: In this forum, I can see the words "Thread Title" but I cannot see the box in which to type the title. I had to guess for this posting where to type the title. Hope I was right. I have reinstalled all my drivers and system file checker checks out OK. I even performed a Repair Install but still have the problem. When I log off, the screen is white with black letters where it tells me that some programs have to be shut down before the PC shuts down. The best way to understand the problem is to take control of my PC - but, obviously, that is not practical.

Hello,

Hoping someone here can offer some advice? I own a Dell studio xps 435t-9000 that is a couple years old. I recently replaced my harddrive and since then (don't know if it's a coincidence or not) I'm having another problem. After I installed it, the first time my computer went into sleep mode/hibernation I couldn't wake it up. Power light was flashing white. Eventually I shut it down manually and then it wouldn't boot. Had a solid amber light, no power except the power supply. Fans not working. I unplugged everything and made sure it was all good. Wouldn't start. Left it overnight and plugged it in the next morning. Started up. Worked great for about 7 hours and then just randomly shut down, no errors or anything. Same deal. Wouldn't start, amber solid power light. Let it sit for awhile, reseated everything and wouldn't start.Gave up for awhile, tried a few hours later and it started. I read a few boards pointing to the power supply being bad or not powerful enough. However, I replaced the power supply about 6 months ago with a Corsair 600 which is plenty power. Could still be an issue perhaps but seems odd it would die in that little time. I also replaced my graphics card if that matters. Finally the last time I checked all the plugs I also took out the board batter for a few minutes to try and "reset" things. Not sure if that matters, either.

So, I'm at a loss where to go from here. I could replace the power su... Read more

My HP 250 G2 F0Z26EA#BH5 Notebook won't boot. It has the WiFi key blinking orange light at 2 sec interval and not booting and won't power off even when pressing and holding power key. It all happened after a Bios Rollback (wanted to move back to the original Bios) The HP Tech team couldn't help solve the problem. They say it's a motherboard problem that I'll have to change my motherboard. I know that changing a motherboard costs a fortune, it's like changing a system and I cannot afford the cost. Another thing is that I have a BIOS Encryption, I added a Bios password to the System both Administrator and Power-on Password. The troubleshooting steps like removing all power source, then pressing and holding power key for 15-20secs and after plug Power cord without battery didn't work. I've also tried holding Windows key + B and then Power on. The System didn't boot but they WiFi key light remained steady. Now the last Agent that called asked me to keep pressing F8 key or Shift+F8 key immediately I pressed the Power button. I am yet to try this but I forgot to tell her that I have a BIOS Encryption (well she asked me but I wasn't sure what she was talking about so I said No).I cannot afford to change the motherboard (even though they haven't given me a quote yet). I planning on selling the System for a new one before this.Please help me get the Notebook operational. I need to get back to work with it.

Recently I have been having an issue where the screen will randomly go completely orange or sometimes black. It takes me rebooting my computer to resolve it.

I have ran a diagnostics and it says there is nothing wrong. All drivers are updated. The LCD was replaced about 4 months ago.

The only thing I have done recently was reformat my hard drive. I used the win xp cd it came with but had to create my own driver cd before hand as I couldn't find the one it came with. I am kind of wondering if maybe I installed drivers in the wrong order and maybe that is what is causing the issue...as it never did this before reformatting.

Is there something you could recommend or do you think it could be the drivers?

Thanks in advance.

I tried removing the video card and using the on board video card and got the same thing. I hooked the monitor up to my laptop and it worked so i know it is not that any other suggestions?

Edit nevermind i pulled one of the memory sticks and it started working again so it looks like it is just a case of bad RAM

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.

Hello, everyone,

Since I am not sure whether this is a driver, software or hardware problem, I decided to start by posting in this general discussion forum. Please feel free to move it if you feel some other place is more appropriate.

I upgraded to Windows 7 shortly after purchasing a new PC late last year. I am using an ASUS P7P55D motherboard, ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 9600GSO graphics card, and a ViewSonic VA720 LCD monitor.

The issue that has stumped me since I got this new computer is that about 33% of the time when the computer initiates the monitor (when coming out of standby or hibernation or when starting the computer), I will see the desktop for about 1 second and then the screen will go black. If I turn the monitor off and on again, I will see the image for another second and then it may or may not go black again. The interesting thing is that the power light on the LCD is still a solid green (it goes orange if no signal is detected). Therefore, the LCD supposedly is still getting a signal, but it does not display anything. Other than not being able to see anything, the computer and Windows 7 operates normally.

If I turn the monitor off and then on, it will either stay on another second before going black or actually stay on, in which case I go about my day. Sometimes this takes 5-6 tries of turning the monitor on or off. Other times I give up and use these 1-second intervals to turn the computer off with my mouse (or restart blindly with the ...

Ok I was sent here from another forum for some help!


My laptop at work was attacked by some serious Spyware & Trojans last week (had no 'anti' anything...or even a firewall). Anyway, my boss bought Spy Sweeper w/Anti Virus at Best Buy and it found a TON of stuff which I deleted.

Since the initial "attack" haha the desktop has been a solid black color. My picture is gone. If I go to a picture & right click it and do 'save as background' nothing happens.

If I right click my desktop > properties > desktop it won't let me select one of those pre loaded pictures either. I can't even click in that 'background' box.

***?? So confused here. Is there still spyware on this laptop? Or did it corrupt something? Or am I hopefully just having a blonde moment and missing something very simply & obvious (I hope!!).

Thanks for your help!!!!

This may not be the correct place to post - but it is a starting point. Please, by all means, point me in the right direction!

Problem: Screen goes black. The power light is orange on the monitor. Checking the CPU/Tower - the on/off button is ORANGE. Moving the mouse - Pressing keys - does nothing. To turn the computer OFF, I pressed and held the on/off button. On starting the computer back up - everything seemed to be fine. I then started running virus scans (ie: Norton, MS AntiSpyWare and many others). During ONE of the scans - while I was away, the computer again "turned off". It happened again when running Quickbooks - however, I had just entered data - and turned away - ie - sadly - not watching if anything was happening.

Dell support was interesting. While the computer is out of warranty - I was not expecting the following: The Dell rep HUNG up on me! I guess it was because I questioned removing the coin-battery as a solution. Was ok with "reseating" the hard drive cables - but why the battery?

Sadly, I've been at this computer for 30 minutes now, and it has not turned off. (Sadly?)

If you have any ideas, let me know.
Oh yes: I tried different power cords, plugged into a different UPS plug.

My Dimension 8200 turned off suddenly with no warning today. It just..died. Annoyed, I turned it back on--tried to at least. The fan still whirled, the CD-ROM drive still spun. The power button, though, glowed a hellish orange where green once shone. Then it sat there and nothing else happened. It didn't boot. The optical mouse light didn't flash. The keyboard lights didn't flash. Nothing.

This has happened before, so I wasn't too concerned. Last time, I panicked for a few minutes and it irrationally and suddenly came back to life as if nothing happened. That was about a year ago or so. This time, though, it's been two hours already and no miracle.

I've read through several threads about similar problems here and at Dell, but I don't want to believe that my motherboard or power supply is gone. Somehow, there MUST be another way. Sob. If anyone has some desperate advice for a desperate guy, please don't hesitate to grace me with a reply. Thank you so much.

Hello Leaps, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Not 100% sure what you mean, but it sounds like you are talking about the help tips like below.

Help Tips - Enable or Disable in Windows 8.1

If you mean that your whole screen is blank with just the pointer, then it sounds like you may need to either restart explorer. You can do this by pressing the CTRL+SHIFT+ESC keys to open Task Manager, click on File (menu bar) and Run new task, type explorer, and click on OK.

Hope this helps for now,

I have a HP desktop model p6142p case that had a failed motherboard (bad capacitors). After replacing the power supply and a motherboard with one from a DELL Inspiron 546 (because it was only $30 on amazon), the PC functions just fine with one exception: The power light in the HP case instead of normally being blue is amber. I'm not sure if this is indicates an issue or if there's simply an incompatibility with the dell motherboard and the HP power light. There are no known errors from post (single beep on bootup). The case power light is initially blue for about a second when the PC is initially powered on, but immediately turns solid amber from then on. I have ran Dell's online PC diagnostics which detects the PC as an Inspiron 546 with UNKNOWN service tag and reports no hardware issues.

Should I ignore the solid amber light and go on or should I be concerned?

Sounds like the dell board just doesn't

When battery is charged fully that light should change to green

A few months ago I bought a Dell 4700 off of a friend for $30. It worked great up until a few weeks ago. Everything was normal, I turned it off, but then the next day it would not turn on. Instead of the two normal green lights in the front, there was one orange one. Not blinking. I tried removing cards, RAM, CD and DVD Drives, and even replacing the hard drive. Nothing worked. I now believe it is either the motherboard or power supply causing trouble, but as much as I would like to, I barely have enough money for one. So I really need to know what's wrong before I spend any money. Any ideas?

Computer has new motherboard, it powers up and everything sounds like it's running. Power button should be blue but it's orange. And nothing will display on the monitor.

A:No display power button orange not blue.

Likely it's only the fans and drives and LEDs that are powering up while the motherboard isn't.Does it give any beeps when you start it up?It's a hardware problem somewhere. Why did you replace the motherboard and if it was because the previous one was bad, how sure are you it actually was bad? It could have been the power supply or a peripheral connected to the motherboard. Is the new motherboard the same as the one you replaced? If not, is it compatible with the cpu and ram--which I assume you swapped in from the old board?With the power cord removed, temporarily disconnect the drives and remove any add-on cards not needed for an initial bootup, remove any USB devices. Then plug the cord back in and see if you at least get a posting or logo screen on the monitor. If not recheck all connections and verify the cpu and its heatsink are correctly installed.

I first logged out of my computer and came back and I noticed an orange light on the power button. I shut it of and turn it back on about two times with the same results of an orange light. I then shut of the the extension that houses 10 plugs. When I turned on the extension I turned on the computer the power button didn't give off a blue light or orange light. The VGA cable, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet cable are all plugged in. I later removed all the connects to the computer gave it a minute and plugged it all back in. There is a solid green light on the back under the power cable. The fans turn on there is noise coming from inside the computer a soft humming and light fan from the back of the computer. But the power button will not turn on. The monitor light is orange and says "No Input signal Input 2,Go to Power Save." When I switch to input 1 it reads "Cable Disconnected Go to Power Save."

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.

Screen goes black then turns a random solid color with buzzing noise. Had this problem for a long time (>1 year), now its getting really annoying and I want to try and fix it. I usually then have to hold the power button to turn it off.
 
- My temps for both my CPU and GPU are fine whenever this happens.
- Only happens when I play games, sometimes it happens fast, sometimes I can go for hours before it happens.
- Almost always happens in FPS type games like Overwatch or Bioshock, but very rarely happens in MMOs like League of Legends.
- Tested with memtest86, futuremark, and prime95, all were fine.
- Recently updated to Windows 10, but even when I was in Windows 8.1 Pro it still happened.
- Updated GPU drivers recently, still didn't fix the problem.
- GPU not overclocked, tried underclocking it once but that didn't help.
- BIOS has 1 new update I can get but I'm holding off on doing it until I tried everything.
- I have all the current Windows update.

I have been using Windows 8 for quite some time now. I have it on my laptop and my home desktop. I have synced-theme set up and use my Windows ID to log into both. I have had no issues at all really since the install. Everything was synced as it should be. The other day; however, I noticed that the desktop background on my laptop had reverted to a solid black color. (In case anyone is wondering, this has nothing to do with non-genuine install as everything is 100% legit plus I am not getting the message in the bottom right of the desktop).

So, I figured it might have been transient and I wanted to change it anyway, so I changed the desktop background on the laptop. It actually did sync to the desktop as well. However, when rebooting the laptop, the same thing happens all over again, though the desktop background is still correct on the desktop, but still changes to black on the Laptop.

When I make the change again on laptop, I notice that it does not change the synced theme desktop, it actually creates a new "unsaved" theme. I save it with a new name but it really does no good.

Anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this? Thanks!

- removed and reinserted the power supply, and also the GPU
- Enter the safe mode with networking, run antivirus both avast and trend micro, check disk and none can really help the problem
- try to run the windows in low-resolution video mode but no luck
- updated the GPU driver into the latest one

Hi

Normally this has nothing to do with a empty RTC battery. In this case you would only get an error message about a low CMOS battery or something else but the notebook would boot properly.

In your case I assume it?s a hardware problem. Have you already tried removing the battery and AC/DC adaptor for some hours or over night? Sometimes this helps?

Otherwise it would be great to get professional help form an authorized service provider. They can diagnose the notebook and exchange the faulty hardware parts.

The computer works fine even if I leave it on for a month (assuming no restarts). 
Can anyone suggest any solutions?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I was using my Dimension 5000 when it shut down unexpectedly. The power button now blinks orange unless I press and hold it when it does not light at all. Pressing it again only produces the steady blinking light. I have some important work on it that I need to transfer to my laptop so if anyone can help me, I'd be very grateful.

Are there any 'Beeps'?
A blinking amber power button light,usually indicates a power supply issue.
Try installing a known working power supply to see if this makes a difference.
The Dimension 5000 does not use a Dell proprietary power supply, most standard ATX power supplies with either a 24-pin or 20+4-pin main motherboard power connector, with, or without the on/off switch can be used, a power supply with two SATA power connectors is needed. You should be able to buy a replacement power supply from a local or online computer store.
Regards to transferring the important files to your laptop, you could use the following:
Remove the hard drive and use an USB adaptor similar to THIS and attach the hard drive to a USB port of your laptop and transfer the files to the laptop.

Power light is white, I have always seen white. Power is getting to the computer (runs normally). Battery does charge. When I remove the battery the power light goes to white. When I put the battery back in the power light goes to orange. Power supply problem? Battery problem? Do I need to bleed the power from the computer(forgot how)?

My Optiplex 780
- will not post
- will not beep
- will not output any video

When I push the power button, 
- Diagnostic lights 1 & 4 flash
- Power button is of solid amber

When I turn the computer off:
- if I press the Power Supply test button, it illuminates green
If I disconnect the power cable
- A tiny LED on the circuit board (next to AUX PWR label) stays amber for a minute or two.

Diagnostic lights 1 & 4 are not documented in the Dell manual. I have tried to disconnect all peripherals, all drives, all cards, even all RAM, still no POST no beep, no video: just the fan running, and diagnostic lights flashing.

Any hope for this computer?

Hi CHRISTOZOID 
Thanks for writing to us.

hello,

my friend is having a problem with a netgear n600 wireless dual band gigabit router WNDR3700v3 in that it will not connect to the internet. When you power it up, the power light stays amber. this used to work before but something happened and we are not sure what happened but now it does not work.. I went thru the automatic setup again and that does not correct it.

we contacted the netgear support and the lady had me do a ipconfig and we could not see any ip addresses. she said that the interface settings were corrupt.

the router is out of warranty and to have her correct it, my friend would have had to re-activate the warranty at 199.00 for a two year unlimited plan or a 1 year unlimited plan for 129.00. he did not want to do that.

I am hoping that by submitting this to the forum, we could get this router fixed. I have a linksys router and that is what I will be using to communicate to the forum. my friend has this router hooked to a hp desktop running windows 7. if you tell me to do something with the router, I will have to disconnect my linksys router from my dell windows xp machine and hook it to the netgear.

please let me know if there is anything that you need from me in order to help in correcting this.

thank you in advance for the help

Have a Gateway desktop computer about 3-5 yrs old (no model number on back). Computer is constantly left on and about 3 weeks ago, tried to use it (still on) and it saw the orange light and thought it was just in sleep mode or standby and shook the mouse to "wake it up" and nothing happened. We've since swapped the memory, video card and checked the batteries...nothing happened, still won't boot up. Memory was fine and worked in another computer.

Any suggestions or thoughts?

Hi there,

I have a Tecra m9 laptop and when I try to power it on, it flashes with an orange light in this sequence:

6 short blinks, 1 long blink, 1 short blink, a gap, and then it repeats.

Does anyone know what the problem is?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

A:Tecra M9 - no power up, orange light error code sequence

What you see is blinking code. The blinking LED provides an error code. Short means 0 and long means 1.

Hexadecimal code can be ?read? by service partner. When the microcontroller detects some problem with power supply the blinking code will be sent. Unfortunately you cannot do anything alone. Contact nearest service partner in your country and ask for help.

All you can try at the moment is to remove battery and start notebook with AC power supply only.

My computer has turned on fine for the past year and a half. I was playing Counter Strike Source recently and the computer turned off.

-When I press the case power switch, absolutely nothing happens.
-The fans do not turn on,
-the LEDs don't light up.
-Nothing changes.
-shorted power switch pins, didnt work
-Power Supply is set to 115V.
-The 20-pin ATX and 4-pin ATX and IDE power cables are all plugged in properly.
- removed the motherboard from the case, reattached it (properly grounded as it was when it used to work).
- removed and dusted the video card, RAM, sound card, motherboard, processor fan, case fans, everything.
-power switch cable from my case succeeds in turning on my brother's motherboard when I plug it in (exact same motherboard, MSI 865PE Neo-2).

My power supply seems to work, at least in powering the ethernet cord that is plugged into my motherboard (the cord blinks orange). But nothing else lights up. But that did not solve the problem.


If anyone has a solution, please let me know soon. Thank you.
 

A:No Fans, No LED, No power on...but ethernet cord blinks orange when plugged in.

Any chance your brother would let you borrow his PSU for a few minutes?

I know this sounds crazy but I've seen it work once - flip that 115 switch to 230 (probably leave it there for a second or so - no idea if time has anything to do with it or not) and then flip it back to 115. BE SURE TO HAVE THE UNIT UNPLUGGED WHEN DOING THIS. Then plug it back up and see if it will fire up for you.

A:dell inspiron one 2205 power light stays orange

Check out the reset given in the second link at #2, then the screen as per #3. If it is still the same then responses #1 and #2 (first link) suggest possible items that might need replacing. However, without examining the Inspiron it is difficult to be absolutely certain so it could be expensive just buying things in order to find out. This would need to be weighed against invoking the professional who can look at the unit and should be able to give more concrete guidance.Most things can be repaired but it all boils down to cost. Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi everyone I'm hoping I can find a solution on this site because I don't want to buy a whole new computer. My problem is that my PC will crash to a random solid color such as beige or grey. This started 3 days ago when I was playing csgo with my friends and it happened once. I thought it was just like a BSOD and I rebooted my PC and everything was good for 3 days. Then all of a sudden my PC would crash to these solid colours frequently and eventually to a point where I can't even start up a game because it will just crash instantly. During these crashes I'm sometimes able to hear sound and other times I'm not. It crashes every 30 mins to an hour when I'm not gaming. My dad and I built this PC 2 years ago and I have NEVER experienced any issues with it. All of a sudden with no warnings of symptoms my PC would crash. Sometimes my PC won't even start up and my screen will flicker black after I get to the login screen.My specs Amd eight core fx 8320Windows 7 service pack 1 64bitAmd Radeon r9 280x visiontek/msi Psu corsair cx750mGigabyte motherboard model 990fxa-ud3Dual 4g memory corsair vengeance What I have tried to do-updated graphics drivers to latest version-started a system repair-used safe mode-fan Intel test for cpu with no issues -ran fur mark Gpu test and my PC instantly crashes (tried 3 times)-did an anti virus scan and no issues here Help will be appreciated but u believe there is a problem with my Gpu due to the fact my system crash...

Hi,
I have an old Optiplex GX240 that had its power supply break, I recently got another power supply from a different computer. The Power supply is working however there is an orange light on the motherboard and power button that doesn't flash. The ABCD lights on the back of the computer are also not lit.

GX240 requires specific NON PFC power supply.  This unit is 16 years old now and has 512 meg ram of the PC133 variety.   A newer model like an optiplex GX620 or better is still viable.  This system is TOO OLD and TOO Slow to be of any use.

I have a Actiontec gt701-wg from Qwest. Just recently, whenever I reconnect my modem, the power light would stay orange and nothing else would light up. It can take anywhere between 5-15 minutes of plugging and unplugging the power cord for the other lights to light up.

I had called Qwest Technical support and the tech told me it's a modem problem. He told me to leave my modem upside down for 30 minutes to see if the problem is fixed. He said if that does not work then I should get a new modem. I tried that method and it does not work.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi everybody,
I recently inherited an unused PC from work. It's an Optiplex 780 with a faulty power supply.
I replaced the power supply with a working one from an old Optiplex 740 and also had to buy an standard ATX 24 pin to mini ATX 24 pin cable in order to use the 740' PSU in my Optiplex 780.
I have plugged in the power cord (but no mouse & keyboard because I don't have any USB keyboard available) and I expected the computer to show DELL logo as well as on screen POST messages during power up but instead I can see the following :
1) Power button in orange color. No blinking. : according to service manual it means PSU is probably OK and PC has reach booting stage 2.
2) 1,2 & 4 green diagnostic lights are on. This combination (1,2,4) is not listed in service manual so I have no idea on the possible kind of error.
Any suggestions about the possible error and how to fix it?
Kind regards,
Beltrixx

Hello!  I would unplug everything go into the computer and unplug any cards you have like graphics card and network cards etc. Also unplug your HDD and Optical Drives and plug them all back in and see if that clears it.  I looked at the manuals you did and just combined 1,2 and just 4.

Hi,

Sometimes when I plug in my laptop to the mains the charging light goes to orange to signify it's charging the battery. After a period of time it goes off, and starts flashing like this:
http://ompldr.org/vYTkzZQ/IMG_0122.JPG
http://ompldr.org/vYTkzZg/IMG_0121.JPG
This is whilst it's turned off. When it's turned on the power button light starts flashing orange and a darker orange.

It seems to happen sporadically. One day it'll be fine, the next it won't.
I've put a voltmeter on the charger plug and that reads 18.5volt whilst plugged to the mains. When I plug the charger in and place the voltmeter on the negative and ground connectors for the battery it reads 0.8volts.
The battery works, I've recently replaced it because the old one died. I've also checked that when fully charged with the voltmeter and that works as specified in the user manual (found at http://www.2shared.com/file/3900367/f777f80e/SG_AS7720_7720G_BOOK.html?s=1)
Whilst it is like this the battery does not charge and the computer runs as if it were on battery power, not plugged in, whilst the lights flash. When I remove the plug it stops flashing and the left light shows a solid green, as does the power button light.

Does anyone know what these lights are supposed to indicate? It makes no mention of it in the guide.
Thank you for your time,
Regards,
Blaggard

I have had 3 different people now tell me conflicting things about wiring cat 5 2 of which are qualified networking people, (I'm not, I'm just dabbliung and trying to sort out my home)

When wiring up a patch cable, 1 person said it has to be in the following order due to the green and greenwhite white being transmit wires or something..?
OrangeWhite
Orange
GreenWhite
Blue
BlueWhite
Green
BrownWhite
Brown
(not sure about the order of then greens and blues but it was roughly that)

The other person said he does it like this purely for convention, and the 2nd netwoking guy said it doesnt matter as long as they are the same at either end. and for crossover you just reverse the sequence.
I'd be enclined to o with the it doesnt matter which order, as they are only wires the colour of a wire doesnt meen jack surely. its just to help you get the order correct... no? its like people who say you shouldnt do 123456 in the lotto as thatll never come up... well newsflash its statistically the same as getting 6 randomly ordered numbers.

Anyways. i was interested to know what the consensus is?

Hi there, I have come to the conclusion that the problem with my laptop is probably the motherboard but I will describe the problem anyway.When I power it the fan starts, the wifi button turns orange and then that's it. Just a black screen.I've tried the hard reset, I took my hard drive out to check if it's working and it is. I took out the RAM and replaced it. I also plugged in my monitor and that didn't work either.Can anyone think of a reason why this would randomly happen, as it was working fine about 2 hours ago As noting appears on the screen I can't enter bios set up or system restore.Any help on how I can get this fixed will be greatly appreciated!

Are the caps lock/num lock keys blinking at all?  This is usually the report of a POST test which can be translated using this to get a better idea of what is happening. 

 

Electronics equipment is a little finicky and can fail at any time without warning even with the best of care. 

 

Some times, there are some precursor symptoms but not always. 

 

By chance, do you have an external monitor to connect it to?  It could be that the LCD panel has failed in some way.  If it works on an external display, then that would confirm it is somewhere between the LCD panel and the motherboard rather than the motherboard itself.
