An extremely viable option is to go for a new (standard) case motherboard and CPU that will support your existing ram and hardware.

This quite often give you more benefits in the way of expandability and a small degree of future proofing.

I have taken this approach with Dells's Compaq's and E-machines.

It does entail re-installation of your software and operating system

Even finding a new Dell motherboard may carry that risk too as it would have to be the same revision level board also to stand a chance of being a straight swap.

You may find the price to be about the same or less using my suggestion.

Check for "bare-bones" deals which are meant for these types of upgrade

You don't have to buy a motherboard from Dell. There are lots of motherboard on the Internet or from your friendly computer shop. the mounting holes for motherboards are fairly standard.
My favourite motherboards are Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS.

Why wont my optiplex 210l will not turn orange light is on


Normally, the amber power light means either a power supply or motherboard issue. There should also be lights on the back numbered 1-4 that give a specific error code depending on which ones are lit up. Here is a link to the manual so that you can figure out what the LED codes mean:

Don't know if there is a wiring diagram but it does contain procedures for diagnosing problems pertained to your computer. Either way, if that circuit was shorted then you're probably looking at a new motherboard or sound card.

The power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. Either the power supply is bad or the motherboard.
