What is the symbol to the left of the power button on the front odf the CPU?  It looks like three disks stacked and a light below the symbol flashes?

Hi,

 

It's just a visual indication of when your Hard Drive is reading or writing data - so if it's flashing rapidly it would indicate a lot of Hard Drive activity, less so when the LED is flashing slowly.

Meaning?  If it's flashing,  it's working? 

 

If it's not flashing, what then?

 

Thanks for the speedy response.
