Hello everyone, I have a question. My disc diode started to blink in amber colour. I have tried to find the answer on Dell instructions sites, but i couldn't. Does anybody know what it means? It's blinking "normally", juts like it usted to blink in white colour (I mean, that it's not any sort of code, because it's irregular) but it changed it's colour. Please help, I'm worried about my hard drive.
Are the other lights blinking as well or staying solid? How many blinks are you seeing, I know you said irregular. Are you seeing any other problems such as the laptop freezing, programs slow to start or run, any clicking noise that is constant? One blinking light (the hard drive light) does not necessarily mean a hard drive problem. It does indicate a problem though and it could mean any number of things depending on the status of the other lights.
