    have you removed all add-on PCI cards?

    reset your bios and waited awhile??



    if so.... then you most likely have a motherboard issue

Dell optiplex 330 keep on blinking amber light orange


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.
Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

My computer dell optiplex 330 starting light bliks orange


Your computer is not POSTing, your monitor is not receiving a signal from your computer!

Take a look through my published guides as they will take you trough the steps necessary to diagnose the faulty component in your computer.

Firstly look at this guide entitled How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Next go through this one entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Happy Testing

When I start Dell Optiplex 330 only the orange ligt of the start button blinks and nothing else is working. I tried removing the memory (RAM) clean and replace still it is the same.


This is usually an indication of a failed motherboard. This is similar to the Dell 745 at my work, that had the same problem. After running all of the normal tests, I found the problem to be the motherboard.

Optiplex 330 desktop computers with start up problems, why?


Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? You may have overloaded the power supply, and if that happened then you will need to buy more powerful power supplies. If that's not the problem, they systems may have overheated if they don't have enough ventilation in the back.
