look to see if fan over cpu chip is running. if the cpu socket fan is not spinning sometimes the pc will not boot. the cpu has to be kept cool so its a safety default. lose connections have been know or broken.
just fixed such a problem by resetting the wires on the motherboard.
First, is it clean, open case and check for dust. Clean fans , CPU , etc., if necessary. Open Task Manager , What is you Preformance, CPU % Memory %? What is running in Processes? Here is a little free program to adjust fans: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/ The orange light is it the HDD led? You can use CCLEANER free: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/. You can clean the junk from your system and in TOOLS, STARTUP, Disable ALL unnessary programs from startup, that will speed up your system.
Does it come with any beep sound, because beep sound clarify the fault. Check it by the way.

No Beeps Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals One Beep Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine Two Beeps POST/CMOS Error One Long Beep, One Short Beep Motherboard Problem One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps Video Problem One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps Video Problem Three Long Beeps Keyboard Error Repeated Long Beeps Memory Error Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps CPU Overheating
Blinking amber (orange) indicates a problem with the power supply inside the
computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light,
this could indicate a problem with the power connections for the CPU on
the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).
Make sure your monitor is connected to the proper video connection- that is if you have a video card in your machine and a video connection on your motherboard. If you connected to the motherboard and you have a video card -your screen will show nothing even though you are powered up. Dont know your situation, but just checking. Ive seen others do this.
It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?
It could be a bad power supply. As far as I remember, this unit has a standard ATX 230 watt power supply. It should not be too hard to replace it. Its fairly straight-forward. Its a matter of removing the panel to access the connectors inside (make note of which comes from where) and unscrewing the power supply on the back of the unit. Reverse all actions to install new power supply. If you need more detailed help, reply to this post.
