you will need to go into system maintenance/loacte sound and insure that the motherboard has sent the request to reflect your sound card is there. if no sound card is listed you will need to do a add/remove hardware search. see computer/right click on properties and then device manager, then go to sound and see if all device drivers are there.

For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.
1) Your power supply has failed
2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.
3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.
I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.
