When you mean the amber light, is that the blinking hard drive access light or the power light? Different cases have different colors on it. Mine has blue and green lights.
If you see the boot screen (bios) and then after it goes to boot, does it blink and hang?
This could be a simple operating system issue, hard drive or hardware/motherboard issue. If you could provide more information, that would help.

Hello everyone, check your cpu - I've just had one of these in for repair and the cpu was faulty - removing the ATX 4way 12v lead let the pc start rather then detecting a short and shutting the psu down. Changing the cpu cured the fault.

For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.
1) Your power supply has failed
2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.
3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.
I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.
