Vostro 460 Mid Tower system, circa May 2012, Core i5-2400, Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
I noticed that recently the light in the power button is completely out. No blue, no amber, no steady, no blinking light - nothing.
Other than that, the PC works just fine. Turns on, runs, everything else is fine.
It's just a little disconcerting, because when it goes into powersave, there's no visual indication that the computer is on.
Any thoughts about what this might be? Loose connection to the motherboard? Are power button LED's in the Vostro 460 known to burn out?
If you are not comfortable with soldering, the other option is to find a replacement front bezel. Since the Vostro 460 is no longer sold by Dell you will probably have to search the Internet for the part. This of course is more expensive then the new LED approach.
Sorry the front bezel doesn't include the LED, but you can possibly find a replace power button LED online.
