Amber light means that a major hardware failure has occurred. Since it's an Optiplex then surely it has to do with the motherboard, the capacitors have failed. You must replace the motherboard and reinstall Windows.

Dell monitor starts well goes on a green light shows then it blacks out and the light on the front turns to amber(yelow)


The lamp goes "orange" when no "signal" is detected.
Check that the "video" cable is tightly-connected to both
the computer and the monitor.
Try the monitor on a different computer.
Try a borrowed monitor on your computer.
Try a different video-card inside your computer.

Optiplex 330 power button blking amber


Hello Ricardo,
Unfortunately, a blinking amber power light means your power supply has failed. If your PC is under warranty you can contact dell and have it replaced. If not you will have to replace it yourself.

Wont start up


Check physical connections first, check monitor cable if securely plugged in and then check power light of monitor. If power light on monitor is amber or yellow it means that monitor is not getting a signal from cpu/ tower. Try to do a power drain on the computer, remove power cable at the back of the computer and then press and hold the power button for 10 secs, after that plug in power cable again and restart the computer.Check if there is any connection if not then try to use another monitor, a known good one. If you get a video from another monitor it means monitor is already defective.

The on/off of pc monitor (LCD) is blinking.


Most LCD monitor (depends on the brand) power indicator light will either turn from Green to Amber, or flashing Amber, or flashing green, when it does not detect video signal feeding it. So it may be normal with your monitor. Are you haivng problem with the display? If it displays he pictue OK then there is nothing to worry about.

My optiplex 330 is not powering up.the power botton flashes orangy bright when the pc is turned on.what the problem there please


The common issue related with a Flashing Amber Power Light is a BAD POWER SUPPLY. If the Amber Light is SOLID then it may be your MOTHERBOARD.

But if it is flashing repeatedly then it is your power supply, you will need to purchase a new one. Good Luck.

Powering up problems.


Try using another monitor that you know works. Then try another video card. The fans are running because the computer is running ---but the monitor is not. Green to Amber means monitor is not on.
A lot can go wrong with loose wires that shouldn't be loose.
But I would try this first.

Monitor Acer Problem


I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
