My Dell Optiplex GX270 goes into power saver mode

When I try to start my computor it goes into power saver mode. Then I shut down the power supply and try again.

This sounds like a bad power supply unit. First check that your Ram and graphics card a free from dust and dirt by removing them from their slots and cleaning them with a dry soft paintbrush then replacing them gently but firmly. Next check that all of the power cables going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. If this is done and you still get the same problem, then I suggest changing the power supply unit.

From my experience orange power button usually means 2 possible issues. One is motherboard especially if it is model gx270 or power supply issue. Unless you really know what you are doing it will kinda be hard to determine. You can open the case and look on the motherboard to see is there any capacitors that look cracked or bloated(not perfectly round) which would indicate motherboard issue. I would take it to a pc repair shop if it is worth it and have the test it. Good luck.

System seems to be in hibernate or standby mode and frozen in that state. Hold dosn power button for 5 seconds or until all signs of life shut down. Wait about 30 second and power up the system.

My Dell Optiplex GX270 continues to go into power saver mode.


It turns itself off when there is something wrong with it. You can check the system events from the bios menu why it does that. When it doesn't boot at all check the abcd lights at the back.

Monitor and mouse shut off.....


Call Dell for support. Looks like something in motherboard detects something (like temperature) then shut down your system.
Probably only need cleaning up inside.
