Thanks a bunch =)
Unplug the CPU?
First of all this
is a CPU and this
is what we call a computer tower.
Could you please provide a little more info? I'm assuming this is a computer you bought pre-built (Dell, HP, Asus, etc.) I'm also assuming that you are talking about that status LED on the front panel by the power button?
If these are all true then it could be anything. I'll list some possible issues starting with the most common:
- Your motherboard is either corrupted or broken.
- Your powersupply is not working properly.
- Your ram is totally fried. (which is unlikely)
Sometimes the LED will blink in a pattern to allow you to diagnose the problem. Tell us more about your computer and we'll help you do some research to see if this is the case.
