Hi quick question,

Upon booting up my ebox this morning the led lights were flickering red. Normally this is a purple colour. Is this normal? Just never seen red lights when it's been booting up before

Tom.

Hi Tom

Firstly, is the eBox booting correctly?

The LED is used only for status purposes.

If the box is working correctly, there could be a couple of causes for the change in colours (for example flashing a new BIOS or changing the boot device) but this would seem more of a cosmetic nature.

If I recall correctly the color you see is a combination of 2 LEDs that are on the motherboard; I believe there's a read and a blue one and then there's an acrylic part that breaks the colors out to the front panel.
When you see purple, it means Red+Blue are on.

I don't know what the Blue and Red mean individually (maybe the manual will help) but if the eBox is working fine I would not worry much.

It is OK to open the box and have a look around if you're curious; we'd just recommend being careful when doing (and putting it back together) and to _not_ try and remove the CMOS battery (the clip usually gets damaged and won't ever fit properly again).

Regards
Pedro

Thanks for the reply pedro. I've changed nothing and its working just fine, was curious that's all. When I get a second ill check the manual to see if I can shed some light on what the different colours mean.
