Question about Dell OptiPlex 3010 DT
Posted by Anonymous on
An 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: Amber Light and fan running
1st thing, disconnect everything but keyboard mouse and monitor, see if anything changes.
If the issue persists, ensure that all power and card connections for the motherboard are tight and secure. If you've added RAM or other parts, remove them. Reseat the RAM in the motherboard that came from Dell.
If none of those ideas have any effect on the issue, replace the motherboard.

Hey mate... Now there could be a number of things wrong with your PC.. First thing is that on the back of the main tower there are 4 Lights that glow if the system is ok but in case of issues they glow in different patterns according to the potential problem... look out for those lights n refer em to this chart
Also in case of potential component failtures the system gives out beep codes in patterns (maybe the sounds u hear at startup)... Do a quick check
Now regardless we can perform a basic troubleshooting...now you seem to be tech savy enough so do one thing... remove all the chords from the system... then hold dowm the power button to discharge the flea power... now remove all the components one by one n reseat them immediately... this will reset the connections n then try n restart again... if the problem persists then post the 4 led code here n we'll go from there mate :-)
