My battery light is flashing four times orange then once white.  It's showing "54% available (plugged in, not charging)".  When I remove the power supply the light keeps flashing and the computer enters power save mode like normal.
I thought my issue was with the batter so I bought a new one.  I switched them out and the battery light stays solid white and shows "63% available (plugged in, charging), but I left it for four hours and didn't charge at all.  And on this battery whenever I remove the power supply the computer immediately dies.
What is my issue and how do I fix it?

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?

Dear Customer, Please install the below recommended softwares: Download the IDT Audio installer found on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. When done, open windows Control Panel, open Device Manager and open up Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the IDT device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver found on the following link. When the Chipset reinstallation has completes, restart the notebook and let Windows fully load - it will automatically load an audio driver, but just let this complete.  Then open your Downloads folder, right click on the IDT installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again before checking the function of the mute button led. Also update the BIOS from the below link:   Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs...

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..?
(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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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?

A:Dell XPS 14z Flashing Orange Light

I had a very similar situation with my Dell XPS 14z. I've got installed A03 bios though.
On startup It said the message:
"This battery charging is temporarily disabled. Press F2 entering BIOS Setup Menu, Battery Status for details.
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
Hopefully the problem will go away in my case!

So perhaps there is a warranty. Anything you do voids the warranty.
Beyond that, you have not offered the brand, model, and configuration, so the help we can offer is limited.

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!

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.

But even after reset the battery, open and check all the connections by voltmeter (including the charging port, battery connection in the motherboard & adapter). Now the problem is the adapter is showing a voltage of 19.19 volts (which seems the adapter is ok), but the battery connector in the motherboard is showing only 3 - 4 volts. Now kindly suggest me how to get rid of this problem.  I am from Bangladesh and here we don't have any Acer distributor to support me on this issue.  Waiting for prompt support please.

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?

I bought a Dell Dimension 8400 last year and it's great up to a point.
Occasionaly it will refuse to boot and will just display an orange flashing light on the box. I then have to hold the power button on to power off completely.
It does this when I haven't used it for a few days, when I've just used it for a few hours and other random times.
It also sometimes just dies when I am using it - sometimes after a few hours, sometimes after a longer time. It will then go into refuse to boot mode as above.
I try and boot again and after a seemingly random number of times, usually as I'm about to hurl it out of the window it will boot up quite happily. It does not perfom chkdsk or any other diagnostics at this time.
I have scanned with AVG virus scan - no viruses. I have used adaware and Spybot remover so the machine is clean of spyware.
I have used Dell's hardware diagnostic software and the machine appears to be clean.
Is there anything else I can try please??????

Hi, I have a Pavilion DV6 and not to long ago, i put it to sleep to do some other stuff. When i did, I noticed the "HDD" light was orange.(see attached image) I've noticed this before but it only blinked. It was never permanently on. I then came back and shut down the laptop. The light was off. As I started back the laptop, the light came on and was permanently on during useage. I then slept the laptop and left it for an hour or so and came back. The light was still on. This happened when the laptop was both plugged in and unplugged from a power supply. All other lights (mousepad, wifi, mute, charging, powerbutton) work fine.  Has anyone experienced this problem/ have a solution? Thanks in advance.

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."

It started when I pretty much wanted the internet. Though I wanted it so badly, there was a complication. The modem was bogus. So I took the one out of the back of an old windows 95 computer and put it in the dell windows xp. I'm guessing that was a bad idea?
I mean I put a new CDRW drive in with no problem, but this realy didn't work. Also, I kinda forgot to turn it off. So when I put it in the monitor quickly flashed white and went to the plain black screen with the big white stripe in the middle. It does that when it has no connection with a computer. Also the light that the power button that was usually green was now orange. Also it's not recognising the keyboard and mouse. The lights from the keyboard aren't even lighting up telling me that it's not getting it's power. Ofcorse the speakers are because they are ploged in with an A/C adaptor.
I found out that when I hold the power buton bown the computer turns off. I tried so many things. I even tried taking the modem out and turning the computer on.

A:AHHH! Orange light! Computer not working

If you were plugging and unplugging things into the computer while the power was on then you could have blown any number of components.

** Before you continue unplug the power at the wall socket!! **

Test it by unplugging ALL drives, removing all but one stick of RAM and any other plug in cards you have (including the video card if the mobo has one built in). Plug in the keyboard only and power up. If the monitor comes up and you get a green light then you know it will be one of the components you pulled out that is faulty. Gradually re-connect everything testing the system after each new component is added. When it fails you will know which part is malfunctioning.

All that said, if you've blown the mobo (which is a BIG possibility) then you are out of luck. Time for a new mobo and quite possibly a new PSU.

Hi guys. My brother has a Dell Inspiron 1100. He asked me to look into fixing it, but he is out of warranty, and I told him I would research his problem and see what you guys reccomended. I have the computer too in front of me for the time being, until it's repaired.

He said he turned it off and unplugged it one night. He often times I believe always left it plugged in. Not a good idea to Constantly do I know. He went to turn it on the next morning, and it wouldn't turn on. Plugged in to the wall, or not plugged in.

When you press the power button, the power light quickly blinks green, then the battery light blinks orange quite a few times but that is all that happens. Nothing comes on at all. Does that mean he just needs to buy a new battery? Or is it more severe?

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.

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.

Hi all. I have been reading this site for a while but I finally signed up because I've had a problem I can't seem to figure out.

It started a few weeks ago, I would be on the computer and all of a sudden my mouse would go to the upper right of the screen, a small box would appear there and then the computer would freeze. I would restart, and it took a few times, because it would lockup during the startup process, but it finally would start.

This was happening almost every day. Sometimes I would be on the PC and all of a sudden my screen would go black and the monitor light would go orange. Well this happened last night and now today I cannot get any video at all.

I start up the PC, and I know everything is working and happening but just no video. I tried several different monitors and all I get is an orange light and a black screen.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? Is my video card shot?

I have a 2.7ghz P4
128MB Raedon Pro
Win XP SP2

Any help is much appreciated, I know someone smart here will be able to give me some advice. Thanks in advance,


A:video trouble, monitor light is orange

Do you here any beeps, do the hard drives spin up, do the lights light up? How do you know its working?

If everything else works(assuming you hear teh single beep or the Windows startup sound), then you need to try another video card. If the fan on it quits a video card can overheat and fail, or fail because of other reasons.

It could be a number of things. It could be the video card but if you're not gettign any beeps its proabbly something else. In which case the main suspects would be the power supply and the motherboard. If you have another computer or access to another power supply I'd try that first.

Hello all,

I know this is a common issue online but none of the things I'm trying seem to work!

When I hit the power button on my PC (dell optiplex 745 minitower) it refuses to turn on, and no fans or anything start up at all.

What I've tried?

-replacing CMOS battery
-grab a spare psu, installed it, still didn't work
-uninstalled the RAM and reinstalled it
-made sure the RAM was separated by one company at a time just in case, since there were 2 companies or makers of ram in at once. No luck.

-changed my power plug
-had cmos battery removed, started up pc without the battery, then reinstalled it, no luck
-put a new cmos battery in and did the same as above

All of these things lead to the orange light on the motherboard and nothing else.

Is my motherboard fried? I've just bought it on ebay as a fun little pc (not as a main one).

I'm out of ideas to try to fix this.

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.

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.

I believe our TV is a magnavox e10839 and the only way for it to put out audio from all devices is that orange coaxial connector if i remember the manual correctly.

A:Orange coaxial audio to RCA red and white?

That is a digital audio output, I'm not sure that hooking headphones to it would work unless it also passes some type of analog stream.

On the power button there is a orange flashing light not letting you turn on your machine.

Well Iv'e got a simple fix

Just do what I do:

First check your cables are connected securley

Secondly Press the power button.

Thirdly Remove the power cable.

Wait 10 seconds, Cross fingers.

*Important Part* While Inserting the power cable quickly press the power button.

The post should not come on.

Then simply power on your machine.

I have been fighting with these stupid HP dv6 & 9000, and v6000 Compaq model laptops for some time now. I've figured out how to bring the board back to life, but I have just not had much luck with the wireless orange light issue, until now.

I'm not sure if this fix is for everyone, obviously. However, if your wireless issue is hardware related and you know your wifi card is good; I suggest you try this method at least once and maybe save yourself a motherboard order.

What you need:
-Everest Ultimate, or any software that can stress your cpu
-That's it, this fix is all software controlled

What I did:
-Opened Everest
-Choose to stress CPU only with stability test in tools
-Covered vent in front of heatsink to inhibit heat transfer
-Waited till the CPU hit 75C, Wireless Works, and the Orange Light is now Blue again.

I hope this works for others. I know I have had about enough of these HP/Compaq Laptop MoBo problems.

-TechSpot is not responsible for any damage caused
-This fix has worked for 7 DV6000 & V6000 laptops
-Wireless may go back out after one or more system restarts, or never again go back out. If so, just repeat these steps; at your own risk.
-Length of stress test may be short and it may be 5 to 10 minutes... Read more

A:I fixed orange light HP/Compaq wireless problem

This sounds more like an internal power problem, from an ageing motherboard. Your findings and your "cure" may just be a coincidence. If you can bring the WiFi back to life even for a short time... this IS a good thing indeed .

If I want to turn it on, the power light turns into an orange dot...

If its caused by the emty RTC Battery, Where can I order a new one (In Europe?)

A:Satellite Pro 2100 - Power light turns into an orange dot


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.

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)?

Take out charger, then battery, and hold down power button for 20 seconds, insert battery, then plug back in charger
