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..

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.

My Dell Optiplex 330 does not turn on,there is a yellow led light blinking


Hi,
If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might occur.

Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location, if applicable.

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
good luck

Switching problem


If the power light is flashing either yellow or orange and you do not hear any fans turn on, your power supply is defective. Contact Dell if you are still under warranty and if not, there are many 3rd party sites, like http://www.pcconnection.com, that you can purchase a new one.

Good luck to you.

Optiplex 330 desktop computers with start up problems, why?


Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? You may have overloaded the power supply, and if that happened then you will need to buy more powerful power supplies. If that's not the problem, they systems may have overheated if they don't have enough ventilation in the back.
