Flashing yellow light?   Leave a comment

Hello – my daughter came home to get on her computer as usual (hers and rog’s) and it doesn’t boot, just has a flashing yellow light. eek

I read a little on the internet about this light and it doesn’t sound good. It’s a Dell Dimension 5150, I think, okay, let me get the specs — they’re below.

Anyone know what I should do next? Conveniently, it’s out of warranty.

At least we were running Mozy, but not on everything. I can restore her crucial documents on the new spanking partition of my new hard drive, at least….
