    I was the seller of the laptop. I never paid much attention to the activity of the LEDs but the MSI manual says the orange light is an indicator that the discreet GPU is active. Might depend on the energy saver settings, but I think windows switching on the discreet GPU normal? Anyway - subbed for a second opinion.

    I think that is exactly what he was trying to give you.

    How about RTFM?

    So what is the "problem" exactly?

    Does it work but the light blinks or is it that it doesn't work and the light blinks?

    From the sound of the post - it seems like there's something wrong but the only symptom you state is that the LED blinks different colors.

    He is no longer with us. He was identified as using nothing on our forums but FSFT for his own personal storefront for over a year. Bye bye.
