What is the yellow blinking light?


on the power button, beside the light neon green light, the yellow light is flashing even if I am not burning anything. How do I stop this? this seems to be enterrupting programs I openned. This happened after I downloaded Divx

The yellow light is an access light It means that the media is being accessed or trying to be accessed If it’s on your case your hard drive is being accessed If it’s that then my guess is you’re running something in the background that is slowing your system down If it’s on your CD-Rom then its maybe a dirty CD it’s trying to read or wants to access something off the CD-Rom and there is nothing in it My best guess is to check your processes running and see if you actually need them all.
