Its a no post issue, remove the hdd cables from the hdd , remove the memory and remove the expansion cards if there is any. try to power on the system. The power light should glow green if not replace the motherboard and power supply. If its glowing green one by one connect the devices and u may come to know which device is causing the conflict.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
