Restart on the pc got stuck. Looked at the suggestions here and finally tested with a generic Power supply and the thing works fine. I also have been having this problem with my dell I have four USB ports in the back and have not figured out which one is doing it but unplugging the USB ports fixed the problem with the on switch blinking orange and keeping my computer from booting. The new PSU does not boot, and I have the orange blinking light while the old one still boots. Overheating has always been an issue with there systems and out company stop buying from them a long time ago. The power light on the front blinks. I will be checking all the other suggestions tonight, but wanted to get some opinions about the problem being on and off.

Chnged the 3V battery. When I remove one of the batteries everything seems to be OK again.
Can anyone help me? I did check the power supply unit and did find that 2 of the caps are gone! I am not getting what happend to my laptop.
Problem is intermittant, but becomming more frequent. After installing new psu and powering up everything works fine.
Anyway this User experience knowledge base is so invaluable. What does it mean?
I just fixed my dell dimension simply by having the power supply replaced. Again, Dell says this the the most cobtroller solution to the problem. Only the new power supplies fan would come on. You guys are sooo awesome!!!!
