  • Hi Joel 12,

    Blinking amber indicates that the computer is receiving electrical power and power supplied by the power supply is normal. A device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed.

    1. Remove and then reinstall the memory modules.
    2. Remove and then reinstall any cards.
    3. Remove and then reinstall the graphics card, if applicable.

    Steady amber: This is a system fault error condition, including the power supply. Only the +5VSB rail on the power supply is working correctly.

    1. Ensure all power cables are securely connected to the system board.
    2. Ensure the main power cable and front panel cables are securely connected to the system board.

    NOTE: If the system was abnormally turned off, you need to disconnect and plug in the AC power cord. Then turn on the system. Otherwise, you may see an incorrect power light state.

    Please get back to me with your findings.

    Thanks and Regards
