Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook
PRESARIO X1000. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? IS TROUBLE TO BE ANTICIPATED SOON? THIS AMBER LITE IS RIGHT NEXT TO THE HARD DISK GREEN LITE.
Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)
That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

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.
