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.

On boot up I have no video display on my dell optiplex 330


It could be one of two things, either your monitor is bad or the video card is bad. Try taken connecting your monitor to a different computer. If the monitor works then it the video card. You could just purchase a new video card and put in and it should work

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.

Switching problem


If the power light is flashing either yellow or orange and you do not hear any fans turn on, your power supply is defective. Contact Dell if you are still under warranty and if not, there are many 3rd party sites, like http://www.pcconnection.com, that you can purchase a new one.

Good luck to you.

Dell (ie optiplex 330) would not boot with the orange light on


Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? They may have overloaded the power supply and if this is the case you will need to buy new power supplies. If this is not the problem, check to make sure that the computers have plenty of ventilation in the back. If they don't, they may have overheated and melted quite a few different components.

My brand new dell optiplex 330 is not booting


I know everyone is not a tech, but, if you will take the cover off and while powered on, look at the large silver looking fins (heat sink) on what is known as the North Bridge chip ane use the BACK of your finger to move slowly and see if there is heat on it, and then the base of the CPU as well, if there is no heat, the motherboard is the likely culprit. I know it seems to be low tech, but it is how I derermined 2 Dell motherboards were bad and have replaced them both with sucess.
Also look at the back of the power supply for a small red switch, make sure the power setting matches your area ... 115V or 240V.
Last resort, look here.
