Del 320 optiplex orange lite blinks won't boot up



For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.


1) Your power supply has failed

2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.

3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.


I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.

My dell GX 270 computer has amber mother board light,No display,processor fan runs,power supply fan rotates.


hi ansilesh

If the power light is steady amber - The computer is receiving
electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
Ensure that the microprocessor power cable is securely connected to the
system board.
it might also be a failed mainboard already since you are experiencing a blackout.

hope this helps

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


Well hate to say it but that sort of problem results from a faulty motherboard or processor so if you say that you have changed the motherboard then you problem lies with you processor chip.

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


To el_cid_132: Did you mean to say a solid amber light on the MONITOR's power button? If, after all you've tried with the computer, you still have no display, it's a pretty good bet your monitor is bad. Try another monitor to verify the computer function. Take a close look at the pins in the monitor's input cable plug. They are pretty easy to bend, and you may have one not making contact.

To Jaffe: It's a simple job to remove the hard drive from your laptop and hook up to another computer to copy anythig off that you want to keep. I don't know what a shop in your area would charge, but it should be reasonable. As for replacing the system board, a quick Google search for "MX6448 motherboard" turned up several sources, price range $250-$300. Usually it's not worth putting a new system board into a laptop unless it's a very high-end model. You can buy basic laptops now for around $400, and you'd be getting brand-new with a warranty.
