Did you open up the case at all. If so just check that all cables are pust well in.

Hi, I would say that normal is Green light --Power on, Red (Orange) light-- Hard drive working. Cheers, Bill

If you are referring to the light on the CD drive some have a multi coloured LED that gives a different colour according to the type of media being written to in the case of a burner it could be orange for a CD-R and red for a CD-R)and whether a cd is being read in which case its usually green. The fact that the CD drive freezes the PC and you have noticed a change in the light colour does seem to indicate a problem in that area.
