Dear All,

When I try to switch on my PC nothing happens. A flashing yellow light comes ON on the power button. When I disconnect some of the Peripherals (e.g. key board, mouse etc)connected via USB the light goes off. I am then able to switch on the PC. Please advice.

Thanks in advance

Disconnet all the uncessary peripheral and put them back one by one until you get to the one that causes your system to not boot. Once you know which is the guilty one you can then work to find the reason.

Please try to:
* Unplug the power cable and remove the CMOS battery from your PC if you are using Desktop
* Try to connect two connections of the battery seat, which will vanish the last temporary remembered settings for CMOS.
* Press power on button on your CPU.

If you are using Laptop unplug the power cable and remove the battery then press power button.

After following the above steps try to reconnect your machine and turn on your machine, every thing should work as usual.
