My computer shut off when installing an update, and now when I try to boot it up it turns on but nothing shows up on my monitor. The power light button turns orange then blink in the 3 and 6 pattern. I tried to flash the BIOS but unfortunately that didn't work either. Is anyone able to help me? Thank you!
What update were you installing at the time? Did you try and flash the BIOS before the flashing light pattern started? The blinking pattern you described indicates a system board failure or recovery image not found. Go to this site and try the suggestions Dell offers. Hopefully the motherboard did not fail. You could try clearing the CMOS settings. The procedure is here.
It was one of the regular Dell updates but I am unsure of which specific one, and I tried to flash the BIOS after the light pattern started but I couldn't even get to the menu because nothing was showing up on my monitor. I will try to clear the CMOS settings now thank you.
The sevice manual indicates 3,6 LED flashes means the problem is 'Recovery image not found'. Since you are unsure what update was being install, it is possilbe it was a BIOS update.
