The amber light flashing is a power issue, this is from the Dell Manual :
If the power light is blinking amber - The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board (see page 73).

I suggest you unplug the machine completely from the powersupply wait a few seconds and plug it back in, sometimes this will help with power issues.

Few days back, when i switched on my pc, just fan starts with noise.. i turned it off then on.. it was working fine, but next morning when i switched it on again.. it was dead, no starting no light...


Check your motherboard for capacitor failure, the Dell Optiplex GX270, GX520, GX620, GX745 and GX755 units are know to have problems. When the machines were under warranty Dell would replace the motherboards because of this issue but they are not covered any longer. If you can solder then you can repair your board. Here is a link to an article that shows what to look for and how to repair the problem.

I have a dell optiplex gx620 pc and the fan stopped what to do?


I am using a dell optiplex gx620 pc at this moment and the fan rarely runs admittedly as this is a small system i.e. very slim and I have the side cover off to accommodate a larger size graphics card and it keeps quite cool.
The fan should only run when it needs to cool down the possessor I rarely hear mine run.
Unless the computer overheating I wouldn’t worry but if you are you can clip off the side and test it with a battery.
Its easy to get at it's located at the bottom left of the motherboard connected to the board by a plug with a blue black red yellow multi cable pull off the cable and externally test the fan.

Powerbutton flashing yellow


If the main power button LED is flashing or solid yellow, this could indicate a hardware problem.

 

Was it running good before?

 

Are the diagnostic LED lights all green?

 

Here is what dell says:

 

If the power light is blinking amber  —

 The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.

  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Do you remember what the BSOD said?
