Flashing yellow light on front of e-machine

\015 When I turn the computer on I only get a quick flashing yellow light on the front. I cannot power down the machine, I have to unplug it in order to turn it off.\015

Answers :

If you are getting nothing, no beeps, nothing spinning then you most likely have a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. I would also take this time to inspect the motherboard (mobo for short). It should not have any capacitors (they look like tiny soda cans) that are bulging at the top, swollen at the top or leaking any kind of fluid. They should be perfectly flat. If your motherboard looks good then I would get a new power supply. You will want to take out your other power supply and look for the output watts. It will probably be in the range of 150 to 300. You must buy a power supply that has more than what you take out, never less. If you have put in a bigger video card or have a lot of cards that you have added to the system you will want to increase the power supply over 400 watts.
