Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
When I switch pc on the power light remains orange and the pc starts to make a noise like a plane getting ready for take off. It's sometimes difficult to switch off and I have to pull the cable out. When it does work it's fine otherwise
A solid or blinking Amber power button indicates a voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
