Q: Flashback LED is flashing when power Supply turned on

Its my first turned power Supply Flashback when LED is flashing on build and I think my motherboard isnt working but more specifically I want to know why the flashback led is flashing when I turn on the power supply Power is going into the motherboard the standby light comes on as well as the Flashback LED but when I attempt to turn the computer on with the power button Flashback LED is flashing when power Supply turned on on the case nothing happens I ensured both the ATX power connectors were fully in everything is connected RAM is in but the computer will not boot Also I might have have connected the power to the case in at the opposite ends ground to power and power to ground but it has been reversed and if that is the problem would I have to replace the case or the motherboard Here are the specs -ASUS M A motherboard -Fractal R ATX Tower Case -AMD FX- core AM GHz -Kingston GB in SSD -Corsair TX -Kingston gb HyperX DDR Ram nbsp

I'm fixing my cousin's HP desktop. It was working before. But one day this happened after he turned off his pc and met his problem on the next day.

Now, whenever the pc is turned on, psu is on, cpu fan and case fan spin but they will stop spinning in a few seconds. Then only those two fans stop spinning while the psu fan is still spinning and the power button on the case is still lit. When I turn on the pc, no beeps come out and nothing shows up on the monitor. It just remains black after the cpu fan stops. And the pc doesn't restart automatically like when cpu is over-temperature.

If anyone knows what the problem, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
 

A:Power Supply Is On But CPU fan turned off

Hello,

Has any cables been unseated?
Perhaps the PSU is at fault..if that is ok, then the Motherboard needs diagnosing.
If the lights come on, the PSU may still be at fault.. i.e not giving sufficient power for whatever reason.

That sound like a problem with psu to be sure get yourself a psu tester you can get a good one for around a 10 on ebay also take a look at your mobo to see if there is damage there also check your ups and safety hub.

Hello,

I had a lightning strike and I think my Power Supply may be shot.

I had it plugged into a cheap surge protector, but I don't trust it.

When I plug it in, directly to the wall socket, the green LED on the back of the power supply just flashes constantly. But when I try to turn the computer on, absolutely nothing happens.

I tried a new power cord with no luck...same thing.

Might there be a reset switch in the power supply, or does this flashing green light mean that it is dead.

Thanks...I appreciate your help

K, I was playing SimCity 4 and my computer just turned off and then turned right back on. Is it the power supply or something else? I was watching TV and that had no problems, so it wasn't the power. It's a new computer with a ThermalTake power supply 420W, AMD64, Serial ATA HD.

Thanks

A:Computer turned off in the middle of SimCity. Bad power supply?

Could be a heat related issue with your graphics card. If it gets too hot it might freeze or shut itself down and the PC. Make sure you are getting proper cooling, and things aren't too hot in your case.

This happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfY4A8gQ1bE

The horizontal lines disappear shortly after removing the power supply, and come back when it's reconnected.

Observations and steps taken:

- The computer has been connected to multiple power supplies in different rooms. This behavior happens regardless of the power supply.

- This doesn't start right away when the computer boots up - only after some time.

- It also doesn't seem to happen in safe mode, but I haven't tested it under heavy processor load in safe mode.

What is happening? What steps should I take?

A system restore resolved this temporarily, but the Windows Update which installed immediately afterwards caused it to start happening again.

Hello,

My Satallite R830 won't turn on.

The power symbol flashes orange 8 times then pauses and restarts. there are 6 quick flashes followed by a longer one on the 7th flash then another quick one. The wireless symbol is lit up (orange) all the time.

If I unplug the laptop and take out the battery and hold the restart button for 30s then without the battery plug in the charger the flashing stops and the power symbol goes green, until I try turning it on, it has a split second where it sounds like it's booting up then stops and the orange flashing resumes.

Same thing happens if I unplug the ac adaptor and the battery and then tried the above but with the battery and no ac charger.

I have tried with another adaptor (same amp and volt output).

Can anyone help?

Many thanks

A:Satellite R830 won't power up - flashing power indicator

>6 quick flashes followed by a longer one on the 7th flash then another quick one

If the power supply microcontroller detected an error the DC IN lamp sends a blinking code.
The short means 0 and long means 1.
I your case this means: 0000 0010

Since error code starts with LSB (least significant bit) you have to read it from behind
0000 0010 -> 0100 0000 -> 40 H (hex)
Now you will need to know what 40 H means

According to some details which I found in internet, the 40H could be the S3V output fault. (S3V voltage is over 3.47V)

However, such errors are mostly related to motherboard problem (internal circuit problem) and from my point of few only part replacement would fix this error.

Toshiba Satellite L305-5955, Ive taken apart and replaced power jack. Not directly soldered to motherboard. While still apart, and battery out/in, connected power supply and still absolutely no response. Power supply is NOT original, and slightly different specs, i.e original 19v..6.3A

current 19v..3.1A
 

A:Toshiba Satellite L305-5955 does not respond to power supply, new power jack

Almost certainly the problem is that the current rating is wrong, if the laptop needs
6.3 A of current, it won't function on less (just as you can't use a 3A fuse for a kettle!)
Unfortunately it must be the right current rating, I know, I've been caught that way too!
Maybe you can exchange it?

Hi,
I picked up this Alienware 5700 off ebay to hopefully refurbish for my son but I'm new at this and still learning and so this thing has me baffled. The laptop is in pristine condition but shows no signs of life. When I plug in the power supply the green light on the power supply goes from solid green to blinking rapidly to the point you can barely see it. To me that would mean a short somewhere right ? If so where ? Has anyone else ever had experience with something like this ? I just don't want to go buying a new battery for a laptop that maybe fried already. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:No power, no lights but green light on power supply blinks rapidly

Remove the laptops battery and try the AC power only. If the green light does the same, it still could only be a bad AC adapter, or at worst, a shorted laptop motherboard

A:Power Supply Wont Power up - Gigabyte ga-ma790fx & AMD Phenom 9850

if I read the specifications right on your mobo... it implies that it has the 4 pin PCI-e input(power) but it also has the 8pin ATX power conector. (it may be simply removing a cap that is actually right next to the 4 pin connector, thus making it an 8 pin connector (thats how it was on my mobo)

Try using the 8pin power with your new PSU, see if that works.

I have a Dell 8600 about two years old. When I plug in the AC adapter, it intermittently fades to the battery as though the plug was pulled out (its not) and of course the screen fades in an out when every time it swithces--it does it every 30 to 60 seconds or so. I switched to a different AC adapter (I have a Dell 600M with the same AC adapter)-same thing so I know it is something internally. Any ideas?

I have a Sony VGC-RB42G computer. I recently moved my computer, cleaned off all the dust, and when I plugged everything back in, it won't power up. The light on the power supply blinks green, inside the motherboard also has a green light that blinks as well. It has a ticking sound too, but I am not sure if it is coming from the power supply or the motherboard. Any idea what could be wrong.

FYI, I have already unplugged everything from the power supply, pulled out the ram, checked the battery, and put everything back together and still no change. One thing I thought was strange was after I unplugged everything, I pulled the power into the power supply again and this time the green light came on but did not blink. It stayed solid.

Hi, I just bought an HP pavilion e9300 a few week ago. And I am going to upgrade the power supply so that I can get a new graphic card--ATI 4870 which requires at least 500 watt power supply. My current computer is shipped with a 350 watt power supply. I will probably get a 650 watt considering the 70% effeciency of power supply.
However, when I talked to an HP technician, he insisted that I could go for a power supply with no more 450 watt. Because the system I just got has a motherboard which has a max power limit 450 watt. He said if I go beyond that, the motherboard will burn out.
So what shall I do? I really want to get ATI 4870 work well on my computer.
Thx very much.
 

A:Does power supply with higher power rating really burn motherboard?

The long answer is "No".
Just be sure of the dimensions of the power supply before you order a replacement, as HP uses some pretty strange sizes sometimes, and you want the new one to fit with room to spare.

Sorry I don't know the proper terms, but basically the pin inside the jack where the power cord gets plugged into on my laptop was bent so that it's really hard for me to plug in my power cord and have it stay in place. My warranty with best buy has expired, so I need to figure out how to solve this problem on my own. I can't just leave it like this because the cord comes out really easily and I can't continue to work with such a tenuous setup. Anyway, is this just a matter of replacing the entire unit inside my laptop? I know you probably need more information, but I'm not sure what to provide, so please ask any questions. The laptop is a Toshia M-45, about 3-4 years old. Thanks in advance

Hello guys.  Can anyone help me understand the power supply on the HP Envy Phoenix 860-019?  The PCIE connector 6 pin connected to the GTX 960 has black and white wires.  Shouldn't there be yellow and black wires?  Yellow is usually 12 volt and black wires ground.  Is the 6 pin connected to my GTX 960  supplying a standard 75 watts of power or something else?  I want to install a GTX 1070 but the 6 pin wire colors are not the industry standard color scheme.  Also there is a 2 pin power connector with a white and black wire.  Usually a 6 pin and a 2 pin can be used together to connect into a 8 pin socket on a GTX 1070.  Will my connectors supply the needed power and connect properly because the color scheme on the wires make no sense. Thank you

You have pretty much the same problem as me (getting BSOD's randomly). For me it's bulging capacitors on motherboard. You should take a closer look for capacitors on your motherboard. Dead capacitors look something like that:

As you did not mention any message or display on the screen, I would use this tutorial for a step by step diagnostic.  It also helps to remove the side panel, and visually watch the CPU and rear case fan movement(s).  As you press the power button, pay attention to the fans. Also does the Power Supply LED stay ON? Or did it go OUT when you pressed the power button?

Hello everyone - I have just assembled a new build It will not power up I need a suggestion to figure out if the problem is the case or the motherboard This is a mini-itx build power-up: power New or Build MB? no supply case's The case is New Build no power-up: case's power supply or MB? Linkworld LC - B This case comes with a volt watt external laptop-style power supply that plugs into the rear of the case just like New Build no power-up: case's power supply or MB? a laptop power supply plugs into a laptop - a barrel connector Inside this power connection connects to a power supply component that is not like a regular ATX power supply but is on a printed-circuit board New Build no power-up: case's power supply or MB? mounted on the case This has several capacitors and other stuff From that comes the -pin and -pin power supply lines for the motherboard I assume the -volt power supply for this external power supply unit is right since it came with the case It was watt The processor is an IBM t with TDP of watts Lower-powered CPUs can be put in a small so I assumed the power supply might be under-powered I ordered a -watt volt power supply with the right size barrel - and same polarity pos inside The MB is an ASRock H MV-ITX It is mini-itx form factor Still same problem Everything is connected correctly When I press the power-on button an external CD drive I have plugged-in spins up for a while But no power light comes on in the front of the case there are no POST beeps the fan for the CPU does not spin up No other signs of life So power is getting into the MB - the external CD drive is plugged into a USB socket in the rear panel of the MB After trying a watt and watt power supply I believe the problem cannot be the power supply cord Can it be that I have too little load I don t think so I plugged in another mm fan and an ol-fashion floppy drive just the power connection to add more load - same thing no power-up no POST nothing but the CD drive will spin up when I open-then-close it yet again So here is the help I need what else can I try -assuming the MB and case are fine is it more likely the case power supply is bad or the MB --Thanks nbsp

A:New Build no power-up: case's power supply or MB?

Well, I figured out the problem.
I am planning to re-do the older mini-itx system I have; it has gotten riddled with Trojan software for kids downloading games; it basically has been de-commissioned already.

So, I took the pico-psu power supply from that older computer, and hooked it up to the one I am making. Everything went perfectly.

So, I un-did that, removed the MB from case, disconnected the barrel-power connection from the case, unscrewed and removed the power supply that had been mounted in the case, put the pico-psu power supply back in place (I had to drill the hole for the barrel-connection out to be a little bigger since the pico-psu internal/external connection is threaded and held in place by nut with lock washer), and routed wires to be clear of cpu fan, screwed MB to stand-offs, and closed it all up.

now, everything is great. I like this linkworld case, but the power supply is worthless. I may try to get a few dollars back from the ebay vendor, to make me happy with a case that is less than what I should have gotten, but is working for me; I don't want to wait on returns, etc.

I have a generic MB (P-120 CPU ) which I just switched to a different case and power supply. It has an extra "six pin power type connection" in the middle of the board. Only one supply that I have matchs this and the wires are three green and three black. What is the funtion of this connector, it looks from the wire colors to be some form of switch.

Its a case of not wanting to swap out the power suppy from my other unit unless necessary. I have 4 other supplies and none have the extra wire, which is listed as P10.

Many thanks in advance.

A:extra power leads on power supply?

Sounds like typical extra +5V lead and can be used for any number of things...(riser cards,backplanes,to drive extra slots, etc.)
Without knowing the specs. on your motherboard this question is impossible to answer...Post Mobo identification (make/model) or obtain FCC ID and post that. Perhaps we can find a more definitive answer for you...BOL

Hey, got quite a problem with my laptop.. It's a Medion Erazer X7813, worked well for ~2 years.
I was doing a graphics card benchmark yesterday and it stopped in the middle of it(monitored temperature, it was at ~80 degrees Celsius when it turned off). No bluescreen or anything just off and I couldnt restart after that(no fans nothing). I thought it might be the power supply, so I tested it, but it was doing 19v when not plugged in, but when I plugged it in and unplugged it again it was at 1v. When testing I unintentionally shorted the power supply and it showed 1v after that just as it did after plugging it in, is it shorting inside the laptop? Could it be the battery or something more serious like the MB? Any ideas are welcome!

Ok so lately I have been getting a BSOD at very random times and it looks like a Diver Power State failure. SO all of my friends and every website I go to makes it seem like I need to get a PSU. Right now I have a Quad Core and a 8800GT and 375W PSU. So my friend told me to get a new 700W PSU.

So, if the only fix is to get a new PSU? I tried to rollback my GPU driver but it didn't help.

So any ideas?

You're greatly risking the health of your whole computer while running with such underpowered power supply. Do yourself a favour and get a quality PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341010 That's the cheapest one that is enough and of good quality that I could find with a quickish search.

A:Power Supply Question & HD Power Consumption

Power Supply Question & HD Power Consumption, Pt. 2 - Laptop vs. 3.5"

My second question is this - I have a BTV server that needs to be on at all times during the season to record shows during day and evening.

Suffice it to say that you CANNOT reliably put one of the critters into sleep/hibernate mode and expect it to wake up and reliably record a show. It just won't happen.

Now, this is one case where I can use "Green" 3.5" drives, but I am also considering banking 500GB 7200RPM or even 5400RPM laptop drives. These will all be on a raid controller, but since they will be in pass-thru mode or RAID 0 mode the controller won't freak over TLER like it would with RAID 5/6 and mark the drives bad. The controller also has more than adequate cache to handle a 5400RPM spindle as OTA HDTV generates little more than 2.5MB per second per channel. Even 4 channels at once is 10MB/s and that should not tap the ability of a 3Ware controller with cache on 5400 RPM RAID 0 or even pass-thru drives.

My question is this - 2 500GB laptop drives burn much less startup and idle current than a single 1TB 3.5" drive. Has anyone tried running multiple laptop drives on a RAID controller, and what sort of luck have you had? What sort of sustained throuput can you obtain?

Electricity is a huge factor here, at 12 cents per KWh. I can recover the marginal cost of 2 500GB laptop drives vs. 1 1TB 3.5 drive.

Case construction and drive cages are not the issue here.

While installing the new optical drive, you might have inadvertently loosened one or more connectors. Recheck all data and power cables to make sure they are tight, including all those to the motherboard.

A:New power supply, no schematic, looking for power fan plug.

There are basically two voltages available to you: 5V and 12V. Doesn't really matter where you get it from - some pin on the mobo or some wire from the PSU.

From the PSU the yellow wires are 12V and red ones 5V, black is ground. The fan voltages should be written on the fan itself, the black fan wire is ground, red may be 12V or 5V depending on the fan voltage.

Fan headers on the motherboard should be labelled so, check with a voltmeter what pin gives out what.

Does it happen with any other appliances? as in does using the toaster while using the kettle While your mate is in the Electric shower, telly on, or ironing?

Possibly a static build up, it is possible, Wher are you situated??
What voltage are you on?

What is the make and model of your comp? is it the same as your friends?

is your machine custom built or is it a brand?
Answer a few of them and we will try to narrow it down 4 you..

Mean while if you could get your hands on a spare PSU that would be handy. And remember when dealing with PSU's alway leave them to sischarge for at least 24hrs,

It looks for a number of domains ? websites such as Google, Yahoo!, CNN; bank websites; PayPal; and many others. Presumably, the people behind this malware are looking for both user names and passwords that they can immediately exploit ? such as for a bank website ? as well as others that may be reused on different sites. (Hint: don't use the same password for all websites!) One of the clues that a Mac is infected is that certain applications will crash. This is notably the case for web browsers, such as Safari, or other network programs, such as Skype. This is because the injected code interferes with the program making it unstable. This malware also has an automatic update module that checks a number of websites for new versions. More @ link.

you can turn your motherboard on manually by getting any slim metal and then touching both power pins with the slim metal, you touch one pin from the bottom and from the top something, but if you don't want to struggle you might need to solder

I have a Delta DPS-150GB B Power Supply out of an Apple Macintosh Power Mac computer. I would like to use it as a 12v/5A power supply for my model train layout. I have a couple important questions:

1) I need to know the pin-outs of the connectors (1-4pin, 1-14pin, 1-5pin on ribbon wire), specifically which ones control start-up and various voltage outputs.

2) Being a Switching Power Supply, I think there must be a load on at least one of the output rails. Can I create this with a simple resistor of some sort? if so, how exactly what would I need to do.

I can email photo of the connectors if that would halp. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:Would a 500W power supply power this

Hi QGamez,

I reckon a 500W wouldn't be enough but a 750W may be the right one. I had a look in a few forums and they had 650W & 750W etc but not 500W.

But wait for more input from the others and see what they have to say

Ok so i do know what the no Power and supply 100%, mobo are power problem is this is more about what i can do to use my computer until i can fix the problem Ill start off with what the problem is My computer wont turn on from the get go i knew the power supply was okay Power supply and mobo are 100%, no power because the mother board has a green light on it showing that its getting power of course just in case i tried putting a new supply in but there were no changes At first glance the mother board looked good No blown resistors or anything of that sort i sent it to a friend to check it out though once again just to be thorough and sure Finally after Power supply and mobo are 100%, no power hours of tedious searching i found the problem The chip that the power button plugs into has blown out Very happy thats all it is Now my question to all of you is is there anyway to bypass using that board so i can run my computer until i replace it if i just unplug the little board that the button is a part of the computer obviously does not turn on when i attach the computer to power and i dont know how i can trick it into turning on without having the use of the power button Any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks Ryan nbsp

A:Power supply and mobo are 100%, no power

There are some motherboards that have a power on button directly on the motherboard. I don't suppose you have one of those? There are some BIOS' that can enable the keyboard to power on the PC by pressing any key. I'm using one of them now. Of course, the problem with that is to get the PC started in the first place so you can change the BIOS setting (if it has that setting).

What motherboard do you have?

My PC suddenly shut off and wouldn't turn on, but the mouse and motherboard lights were still on. A tech took my PC and ran some tests. I assumed that either my Power supply or my Motherboard was unfunctional but he called me back telling me that it was neither, and that the problem was coming from "a part" that gave power to the motherboard. The replacement of this part would cost $80.

Am I getting ripped off? What part could possibly cost $80 and isn't the Power supply?

I have a 3-4 year old Compaq Presario SR2017CL desktop and recently (maybe a month or so ago) the power-on button (green) began flashing when the computer goes into hibernation. I saw this a year or so ago and there was usually an update to Adobe, Microsoft, iTunes, etc. that needed installing. I've checked all those and can't find anything to explain the infernal blinking! I even downloaded an update to the BIOS and that didn't do any good, either. Can you think of any reason for the light to blink? It's actually the lighted power on button and not an indicator inside the box. Other recent changes I've made to the system: removed Norton Antivirus using the registry since there was no uninstall for the program (also a puzzle to me????) and uninstalled my Kodak printer for reasons I won't go into right now. Would appreciate and help you can give.

A:Sharing with computer turned off/low power?

No, you'd have to wake the computer on a LAN event to bring it out of the low power state. Or you could purchase a Network Attached Storage appliance on your network.

I'm using Windows XP and set the monitors to switch off after 10 minutes of inactivity. This works well for a while, maybe days, then the monitors will switch back on as soon as they are turned off.

I bought my XPS a couple weeks ago and immediately upgraded the memory to GB Everything worked fine but I then decided to upgrade the video card to an EVGA GeForce GTX SSC This card requires both a and an pin power connector which the stock Dell PSU doesn t provide So rather than return the video card I upgraded the PSU to a Corsair CX M which I ve read other XPS users have had success with in this machine As others have reported this PSU is a tight fit but I was able to get it installed As soon as I powered it on my problems began The case and CPU fans spin I can hear the HDD spinning up and I can open and close the dvd tray So I know the PSU is at least providing some power But I get no video and the power indicator on the top of the case flashes an amber pattern I ve tried reverting back to the stock dell PSU and video card but still have the exact same issue nbsp I ve 8900 Light Flashing XPS Power also tried unplugging the power cable and holding the power button for sec But still the power light flashes the amber pattern I know there are no beep codes for the XPS and that the power light s amber flash pattern is used instead to diagnose the issue but I haven t been able to locate any reference to what the patterns indicate The power indicator flashes a - pattern and repeats Does anyone know what this means

A:XPS 8900 Flashing Power Light

Followup:
I had ripped everything out with no luck. Well, everything except the upgraded memory. It had been working, so I didn't think it would be necessary to remove it. But I was wrong.
I reverted back to the stock memory and the blinking amber light problem went away!
Then I re-installed the new memory, and it also worked!
So I guess it was just that the memory needed to be re-seated.
Not sure if the 2 - 7 pattern means "Memory issue", but that would be my guess.
Since the XPS 8900 doesn't support beep codes, I hope Dell will eventually publish what the flashing light patterns mean.

Sounds like a power supply shutdown. It happens when there is a major component failure which causes the power supply to keep resetting and trying again (the "clicking" you hear)

Hi!

I'm having trouble with my hp pavilion dv5000. It started about a month ago and i should have tried to repair it sooner. To begin with the problem was just loud clicking noise, perhaps the fan. Soon after it had trouble waking from standby and finally while attempting to turn it on the power LED would turn on but after a few seconds the screen wouldn't light up and the power LED light would begin to flash.
It had been working still however if you tried to startup a few times, with no further problems. However now it won't seem to get past the Flashing LED no matter how many times i try.
I'd be really greatful for any ideas.

Thanks!

Please reference original problem description on Dec 9 for additional discussion

I am still having some strange problems with PPT. I normally have many applications open at the same time. I have 2GB of RAM, but at certain times PPT goes crazy. I decided to look at Windows task manager during one of these events. Prior to my test I had the following applications open: AutoCad, Lotus Notes, Acrobat, Excel, IE, and PPT. I was working on a PPT file copying and pasting from AutoCad when I open a new PPT file and then PPT went into its flashing mode. I looked at Task Manager (TM) and noticed that CPU usage was running 65%. Keeping TM open I selected my Excel work book window and noticed that CPU usage immediately went down to <5%. Going back to PPT CPU usage went back up to 60+%. I have tried closing applications including PPT but unless I restart the problem remains. HELP! Thanks.

So basically my computer has small blue power LED on the front that shows its turned on however upon switching the system on this morning the blue LED was flashing constantly This wouldn t really be a mystery Constantly flashing Solved: LED power to me if it weren t for the fact that the system switches on with no trouble Now yesterday morning I switched the system on first thing and got the same response a flashing LED After a while the system just shut itself down which I assumed had something to do with the power supply since it was the power LED on the front that was flashing wildly In response I removed the PSU I that was in there and inserted the stock PSU which came with the system The stock PSU has barely even been used Solved: Constantly flashing power LED since the moment I recieved the computer some months ago I swapped the PSU for a better one from a previous system Now the computer ran perfectly throughout the entire day yesterday on the stock PSU then all of a sudden it decided to start flashing the LED this morning I don t suppose its a coincidence that every time I ve had computer problems they ve manifested in the morning when being switched on after hours of inactivity Any help in figuring this one out is appreciated Cheers nbsp

A:Solved: Constantly flashing power LED

As it turns out, it signals a hardware issue on the inside and through further testing I discovered that my CPU fan was failing to activate upon booting the system up, thus the CPU was reaching its maximum temperature and automatically shutting down to prevent damage.

I was wondering if anybody knew what to do in a situation like this: I have a 2 year old laptop that is pretty crappy, but it lives. It's cd-rom, external powe4r port, and video port dont work, and the graphics are really red and it ruins gaming. and the wireless internet adapter just went out, so I want to reinstall it, I have a bootable version of the xp install disk on a usb but the bios is way out of date(no usb boot support) and it won't let me flash it on battery power and it doesn't have a floppy version(I have a external floppy drive). so I eather need a way to trick my computer into thinking it's running off of external power, make a flash bios floppy, or get a floppy that boots usb's. PLEASE HELP!,

Just bought an ATC-710. When I put it into sleep mode, the power button keeps flashing bright white, and it driving me up the wall. Is there a way to stop the blinking in sleep mode? Thanks,

Hi,Need your expert help! My HP TouchSmart 600 won't power on. The lights at the bottom of the desktop are flashing green. It worked fine the day before. Is it the mother board? Or a power supply issue?
