Where do I plug in the pigtail of a multimedia card reader to the usb on a Dell Optiplex 260?


Have a look at where the other usb connectors are, from memory they are yellow, now look at the pin count and one should be blanked out, make sure yours is the same config on the "pigtail" and if so plug it in, there are usually two connectors on the motherboard, is there a separate power lead for it??

I got dell optiplex 755 desktop computer in the power supply unit at the back there is a small button and a green light what are these for??


It help diagnose problems with your computer

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow:- the power is operating fine but your computer not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPU or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light: power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode

Dell OptiPlex GX270 mini tower won't boot


Reinstall (remove and reinstall) your USB devices.

Could be memory error. Remove and reinstall your memory modules one at a time.

If not, could be your motherboard.

Hope this helps.

Dell Optiplex Power-on Problem


An Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. 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...
Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
