Having problems with your Dell Computer Monitors ?

Can't switch on comp..amber light flashing?

\015 I went to switch my comp on and the main button on the comp is flashing amber\015

Answers :

That usually means no video signal is coming out of the computer.

Try another known working monitor on the computer and then turn on the computer and see if you still get no video on the screen.

If that doesn't work then with the computer turned off, reseat each stick of memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. After each reseat, try turning on the computer and see if you get video on the monitor. If you have another stick of known good working memory you may want to try it in your computer.

If that doesn't work then turn off the monitor and go ahead and reseat the processor as well then turn on the computer and see if you get video.

If that doesn't work then go ahead and make sure only the power connectors are hooked up to the motherboard and then turn on the comoputer. If you still don't get video then you know sure at this point that the motherboard is bad in your computer.
