    Dell inspiron

    Maybe someone here will know the code. Will not power up has orange light at board and green light out side of computer where you plug it in. Also when you unplug power both lights will linger for a bit before going off together.
    Last thing I remember, running for the door,
    I had to find the passage back to the place
    I was before.

    From what I have read, this seems to be the normal configuration as far as the lights are concerned. My experience with this is all symptoms can be normal but have found the power supply to be weak or not operating correctly. Most cases replacing the power supply works. If this does nor, then there could be an issue with the memory being bad or the CPU has died.

    Reset the bios and try again. I am betting on power supply also.
