Question about Dell (E210882) Motherboard
When I press the power button there is a beeping sound and then 3 & 4 on the front panel is illuminated.
Unplug Motherboard completely from all power. Remove RAM and all ISA/PCI/PCI-E/AGP cards out carefully and wait like 5 minutes. Try again using only bare essentials: Video card and 1 stick of ram. Alternate RAM is possible if it doesn't work. Try a New Video Card if nothing else works... Most MB manufacturers will have a chart that has the beep codes so you can at least narrow it down if not solve it by the beeps.

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.
