Hp compaq dx7500 orange blinking light

HP Recommended
Hi guys. I recently purchased a second hand hp dx7500 microtower and I noticed that there is a tiny rectangular orange light located on the front panel that's flashing. The power button is located above it but on the top of the case and has a built in green light thats always on . Should I be concerned since it's an amber light that's flashing ? I have known that amber light is associated to possible faults within the pc on other brand computers. Please help. Thanks

@Aaron31 , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Hardware Reference Guide for the computer:  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01570525

 

If you look at Chapter 1, Page 2, there is a diagram of the Front Panel Components.  It looks like the blinking light is the Hard Drive Activity Light, Item #6.  The information in this guide will be very helpful for you.  Also, here is the Illustrated Parts and Service Map:  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01570902

 

Again, it has valuable information about the computer.
