Question about Dell OptiPlex 3010 MT Desktop Computer
On power up: flashing amber light on power button no fan no harddrive
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low or missing 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.

A flashing amber light means a power supply problem usually caused by a bad power supply. Replace the power supply and everything should work fine for you.
