Re: Inspiron 3646 Power LED Blinking

 

Blinking amber power button LED =
* Stuck in an S3 power state
* The motherboard cannot start initialization
* Possible power problem. Ensure the power cable is connected to the motherboard and CPU

Open the case cover, power the PC on. If it has one, does the motherboard flea light turn on? Does the PSU have an internal fan? If yes and turned on, is this fan spinning? Consider disconnecting the power cable from the PC, opening it up and disconnecting/reconnecting every card, cable, etc. Perhaps something is not fully seated.
