    TYPO on home page

    “Loose Contacts” should be spelled “Lose Contacts” with a single “o” unless you’re talking about loose cables or something like that.

      If this process does not work for you, I suggest calling the manufacturer as they must see this all the time. If they have any suggestions, please post another comment here to help others. Thanks

    Do you think that DELL optiplex 5070 MINI Tower I7 9700, 16gb ram, uhd 530, 1tb crucial ssd nvme would be a good choice for programming with modern language like JAVA?

      Definately. We can’t guarantee anything, but I cannot think of any reason JAVA, any other language, or non-gaming program would be run incredibly well on that Dell 5070 config.

    I watched your video ‘Easy Fix Lenovo Laptop Flashing Power Light…..’ and found it very clear and concise even for a low tech person like myself.
    However, I have a Lenovo Flex 2-14 with the same flashing power light issue. I tried disconnecting the battery for several seconds but to no avail. I also tried disconnecting it and holding the power button for 30 seconds which also didn’t work.
    I did notice on my laptop when the power light was on the processor fan ran as well unlike what was happening in your video. Can you suggest what the issue might be and a possible remedy?
    Thank you.

      At that point you may have a defective motherboard or CPU. Other than pulling the battery and letting the unit drain for a few minutes I can suggest you try to pull the BIOS battery (should look like a watch battery) and the memory too (both easy once you get the back off).
