Is consistent and often fixed by installing a new power supply.
Firstly thans for reading/taking time to responed.
I have a Dell Dimention 5150 desktop and recently moved houses. When i setup my system in the new place it wouldnt turn on to begain with, the Power button flashed Orange on and off for a minute or so. 5mins later i tried and it worked fine.
The other night while the system was turned off i switched off the mains supply and when i went to turn it back on next morning the same problem occured however it seemed to work when i tried an hour or so later.
Yesturday i had a power cut while the system was turned on and the power was down for around 3 hours. When i tried to turn the system on around midnite the same problem occured, flashing orange on off however this time it didnt stop and continued to flash when i woke this morning.
I have tried to plug it into various socets around the house with and without my surge protector and just get the same results, continous flashing.
My guess would be the problem lies in the powerpack and/or the new house maybe running a higher amp/voltage to my last one, however the other electrical compoants work fine (tv, ps3, laptop charger etc).
Any advice and help to resolve this issue would be great.
thanks in advance
