Having problems with your Dell Latitude D430 Notebook ?

The power indicator on my dell d430 is blinking yellow and green. It works fine but someone told me that the CMOS battery is gone. Where is it located


Answers :

Could be a number of things, the Cmos battery is unlikely however, as that merely maintains the date and time settings. You'll find the battery under the case at the botton of the laptop .

The blinking yellow / green lighst point to a faulty power supply, which may be failing. I'd have this tested firts to see it is putting out the correct voltage before opening the case. If it is working and charging the battery, then the issue might lie within the motherboard itself. Do you get any other issues with this such as Bios beeps on start up?
