A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a Dell Optiplex GX 260 that will not boot.

Try to set it to boot first in cdrom in bios setting then place a bootable cd in cd drive that will run in DOS mode. If this boots up with a command prompt. Then your hard drive has a fault, could be a corrupt files or missing files.

Post comment if it does not help so we can device another solution.

SOURCE: Dell OptiPlex GX270 mini tower won't boot

Reinstall (remove and reinstall) your USB devices.

Could be memory error. Remove and reinstall your memory modules one at a time.

If not, could be your motherboard.

Hope this helps.

IN dell optiplex sx280 model system we are using in this amber power led blinking continuly yellow color because of this not able to boot the system. kindly give the solution for the same


Hi there!

A blinking amber/orange light on the power button of your Dell Optiplex means a hardware failure. If you know how to strip down your computer to basic component, then I suggest you turn on with only the motherboard, processor, memory and PSU. If you are not familiar with this, I suggest you bring the computer to a qualified technician.

Hope this helps
