Dell XPS 8910 - Hard Drive Activity Light - Missing

Jump to solution

Having used Desktop computers for many years, I was surprised to see that my new Dell Desktop did not include a Hard Drive Activity light. Hard Drive activity is a good indicator when booting, trouble shooting and communicating with on-line Support Assistants. Is there a way to add this light?  Does the motherboard have an output terminal? I know that Dell is sheepish about their users messing with the hardware but I'm asking the question anyway. In my opinion I'd like to know the back story behind the decision to drop the hard drive activity light. Thank You.

Hello!  there isn't a way to add the light.  As for any back story it was probably a design choice.  There are a lot of computers that omit the light now days.
