Q:”my dell inspiron 1525 power light is blinking amber???”
Answer:”Try this : Remove the dell inspiron 1525 battery & disconnect the AC adapter. Push the power button for about 20 seconds and then plug-in the dell inspiron 1525 adapter. See if the computer turns on, if it doesn’t you may have to remove the hard drive. It it still fails, try to reseat the memory modules; refer to this link for servicing http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/index.htm if that doesn’t help, then your motherboard may have gone bad. Check with your manufacturer for available replacement inspiron 1525 battery. But if replacing it will cost more, better buy a brand-new system. Hope this helps.
Most newer models of Dell computers now have a diagnostic LED surrounding the power button on the from of the computer. When you press the power button to boot the PC, the light should be green and remain green under normal circumstances. Any other lights will help you troubleshoot the power issue you are having.
A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.
A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard(dell inspiron 1525 battery).
A blinking yellow light indicates the dell ac adapter is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.
A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them. Also pay attention to any unusual beeps or sounds coming from the computer. Then join us in our free computer tech support forums and we’ll try and help you solve your PC problem. Sometimes, however, a service call to Dell will be required. If your system is still under warranty, you should always just call them first, as tampering with your computer may void your warranty.”
