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: Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly

Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe

Dell optiplex 330 keep on blinking amber light orange


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.
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.

Youve burned something, You may have shocked your motherboard and burned it out. You don't need to see burn marks to fry it. or the ram stick is no longer good. try this, take out your ram stick, and the big watch battery along the wall, carefully not to touch anything else.. pull that out while off for 10 seconds, then re put it in. but it seems like somethings burned.. ive done that once, it was the ram stick, the other time i straight shocked the computer.. but try the bios thing, its a stretch but a possible jumpstart..

Optiplex 330 power button is orange


If you are getting no video at all, then we can use the diagnostic LEDs and the power LED to help determine the failure.

Solid Orange/Amber generally is a Motherboard failure. Remove all expansion cards and all external connections, see if anything changes. If not, replace motherboard. If you get a change, then add items back one at a time till you ID the Fault

I have a dell optiplex gx280. when i try to play video from any site, it reboots. changed monitors and same problem.


It is not a Monitor Issue. It seems to be an issue with the Video Card (if any) or the Drviers installed for the Video Card. Try reinstalling the drivers for the Video Card and also flash the BIOS for the same. You cal also change the setting in BIOS inorder to stop restarting the system on any errors.

For any further support please call Dell Tech support @ 1-800-624-9896

You need a start-up CD and re-flash the Bios to Factory settings that worked. Best guess would be something was wrong with the BIOS package you had installed or someone/something messed up the installation which is causing your problem.

If you have factory CD Try to start the computer with that in.

My dell optiplex 330 can not switch on, whan I put power on I get orang light only.


If you are getting an amber light flashing, your power supply is faulty.

If it is a solid amber light, you motherboard is faulty or one of the componants are faulty.

I would suggest giving Dell a call. They would beable to pin point the problem and give you a quote. Some of their componants are non standard and can only be purchased from them.

You could try reseating all your componants on the last resort but it is unlikly to help.
