Hello,

I suggest that you reset your memory stick inside your computer. If you have two memory/RAM sticks inside, then try using one. Try starting your computer. If no go, try unplugging the DVD drive - then start the computer. And do the same thing with the other components.

Here's the situation: Your computer's hardware part has a problem with it. You have to isolate that part that's causing it. If this seems hard for you, then I suggest that you get a technician for that.

SOURCE: Orange light on Dell GX270 power button

I agree, the Optiplex GX270 is infamous for MoBos going bad. The capacitors have a manufacturing flaw, and up until February of 2008, Dell was replacing those boards for customers for free if it was found that the capacitors were the culprit. I just found a board yesterday with this problem. A sign that the capacitors are bad is either a buldge or they will be leaking an orange-rusted looking substance (primarily capacitors near the CPU). Symptoms of this problem include the PC rebooting itself randomly, and/or getting a BIOS error saying there was a thermal event.

Sounds like you only have power going to your motherboard.

The power supply might be bad on it, that or maybe the power cord is going bad and is only letting a small amount go through. I don't see why there should be a problem if you have even a little bit of power going though.

Can i test the on/off button to see if its broken


If the fans start up and stop it sounds like a power supply problem and the power supply is shutting down to protect itself. You may have short on any of the power supply leads or in the motherboard.

The orange light shows the battery is charging. It will turn green when the battery is fully charged. The white light shows there is power entering the computer.
The usual problem with a computer when there is no response to pressing the power button is that the motherboard has failed requiring the replacement of the motherboard.
If the computer is still under warranty there should be a free motherboard replacement, if not, and you are able to do the replacement, you can find motherboards for sale on various websites. Be aware that motherboard replacement for laptops can be expensive if done by computer repair shops.

We have 30 optiplex 360 now 10 pcs are not able to start the orange light remain when we click the start button what is th actual problems and how can i solve it


make sure the cpu has secure dust free connection and thermal grease
you might need to replace the psu
if you have added any extra devices to your computer you might need more power voltage or it might be faulty

also check all leads from motherboard to hard drive for secure dust free connections and ram modules cmos battery for dust free secure connections

No power only orange power light


Hi, It most likely is a faulty power supply or a motherboard issue. Remove the power cord then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. This will release any static buildup that might be in the computer and sometimes that causes it not to boot. If nothing is happening it is more likely your power supply than the motherboard.

When i start my dell optiplex 330 pc, the power light will be blinking orange and all the fans on the pc do not work but the orange led on the motherboard works.


Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
good luck

Power button if flashing orange and nothing else works


It's likely that your power supply has started to go out. There are several different leads with varying voltages & amps. If your computer is getting enough power to make a light flash yellow or orange then this often means that there is something wrong with one or more of the voltages from the power supply. Sometimes it means that something is wrong with your motherboard. Like: burned out capacitors, resistors, & etc.
