My dell desktop computer remains stuck after restart in the loading process. This started to happen after McAfee did a scan and said to restart computer.

Dont worry . it not that the dell has hung during the boot proceedure.
dell has a advanced security feature which incorpaorates delay to booting after every boot failure.
further incomplete boot will add up the time. this is to prevent any mishandling of the device by brute force attack. just let it boot by itself. give it more time. it will boot up fine. dont blame mcafee

I locked my pc with bios password .Now ,after longtime,i forget it ,Plz help me to unlock my pc is dell gx270

Switch off your computer and remove the power cord from socket. You'll have to open the computer case, locate a battery on the motherboard - usually a lithium battey looking something like this:

Carefully remove it from it's holder and wait, say, 10 minutes. Reinsert the battery, and power up the computer. It should have lost all the setup settings, along with the password.
Go to setup (usually pressing F2 on start) and load default setup values using a corresponding option in the menu.

Computer not coming on

Flashing Amber Light on a Dell Desktop is a defective power supply.
You can get a replacement from various vendors, or Dell.
Good Luck.
