Blinking light

By legaspira ·
When booting up windowsNT, I get a blinking light on the left hand side of the screen. Can't go anywhere else from there.

Any number of things (both hardware and software) might cause this. Sometimes the solution is as simple as hitting the Enter key (effectively kick-starting the computer after a minor momentary glitch). Or the answer may be a sdifficult as wiping the drive and re-installing all the software.

It's almost impossible to diagnose this remotely with the little information you have given.

Your best bet is to turn your problem over to the State Department's IT folks for resolution. Assuming this is a government computer, any attempt to fix this yourself might only make things worse and really get you in trouble.

I'm sure that's not what you want to here, but they are probably best qualified to troubleshoot your problem becasue they are familiar whith how your computer is configured.
