Does the monitor go out completely, no power? Or just lose a signal? Check ALL cables, AC and Monitor cables. Could be a Graphics adapter issue or Monitor , try another monitor.Your computer has a few miles on it , right? You could buy a PCI Graphics card if the monitor is OK.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Power

You might have to change your power supply..(ex:SMPS or ATX)

SOURCE: Power

check to see if something on the motherboard is fried, usually the capacitors are the first to go. look for swollen capacitors (the X on the top of the capacitor is not flat, usually leaking something or just swollen). If so, have the motherboard changed, if it's still under warranty, DELL replaces it for you.

Flashing front powerlight is often a result of a faulty powersupply, try another powersully on the pc and see if the problem gets solved. I've seen a few of these cases personally.

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok


Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional
