Flashing amber light


Hi, on most Dells a flashing amber light on the power button indicates a problem with the PSU or a short on the main power rail, if this is the case you should have 2 flashing lights as well, 1 & 3.

My Dell optiplex 330 is not getting on only cpu's red light is flashing..


I am assuming you mean the power light is flashing, probably amber.

Here is a link that explains the codes.

A flashing amber light usually means there may be a power problem or an internal device malfunction. See the link.

Amber light flashing on my dell 5100, green light on motherboard


The green light just means it is plugged in and getting power.Try pulling the plug, the green light will go out. If you can remove the battery out of the motherboard, "it looks like a quarter", leaveit out for a couple minutes and out it in 'The same way it was" make sure you "look" at it before removing it, it has a little release thatenables it to lock in, or pop out. plug it in and give it a start. It may just be the settings got corrupted, that little battery saves the start settings, once it starts, we can go into the bios if any settings need changing, I'll keep an eye on this post, good luck
