Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Yellow blinking light and no power
\015 Went to turn computer off last night and when i went to turn it on this morning all I got was a blinking yellow light....What's wrong\015
You did not specify the brand but I assume it's a Dell and no beeps are heard, no CPU fan is turning on, only blinking yellow light. This brand usually experiences this problem.
- First, check the power supply. Disconnect connectors from the board and make a jumper wire for the green wire to any black wire. If the PS fan does not spin then it's busted, else proceed below. \015\012
- Reconnect connectors except the one with 4 wires, 2 yellow and 2 black, then switch on. If CPU fan turns on then you have a bad processor. \015\012
- If the fan is still not turning on then check the USB port pins for short circuit.. disconnect it from the board and switch on. \015\012
- Do the same with other hardware connected to the board.
