Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Steady orange light above the battery looking symbol

\015 I have a emachines c2280 desktop. This morning when i went to log on the screen saver was frozen. So I restarted it and well the screen went black and the tower did nothing except the light above the battery symbol turned oragne and stayed that way. It uses windows Xp. Everytime i try to restart it, the light turns orange and no abient noise is made( that is regularly heard, i.e. start up of the dvd/cd drive). the monitor once in a while pops a 3 colored block-in it states to check the wires. i have already checked the wires they are all hooked up. On the keyboard the number,caps, and scroll lock lights flicker once in a while too. Dont know what to do, help.\015

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen. I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard. Is there anything else I could try?
