Hi a bit more info

when the DC-in bored is plugged in I cant get a stable voltage on the out of the DC in bored.

the power brick looks good, I can get a stable voltage from it.

What I would like to find out is what the flashing red light means (e.g over current, under voltage etc..)

My gut feeling is that a power chip on the mobo has gone and is shorting out.
