This is usually an indication of a failed motherboard. This is similar to the Dell 745 at my work, that had the same problem. After running all of the normal tests, I found the problem to be the motherboard.

How can I solve a problem with my Desktop "Dell 330 OPTIPLEX" which lights orange on the power button when I try to power up my computer?


Hi

The symptom you describe indicates a power issue, the most likely cause the PSU in the unit is failing, if you have a lot of USB devices connected try removing some of them, You could also try removeing all connected devices other than monitor keyboard and mouse and see if this will allow it to boot, but the most likely fix is going to be a new Power Supply unit.

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 fails to start. dignostic light 3, 4 blinks all the time the processor run and the hard drive is also fine please help solve problem


There is an issue with a fulty RAM module. Open up the case and remove one of the RAM modules. try restarting. If that doesn't work, put the one that you took out back in, and remove the other one. If that works, then you need to buy a new module to replace the one that was bad

When i start my dell optiplex 330 pc, the power light will be blinking orange and all the fans on the pc do not work but the orange led on the motherboard works. It was running ok until I shift the RAM...


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..

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

Orange light blinking and wont start


Hi, I think if its continuous beeping sound then Take out ram And clean with dry cloth the golden surface. And on mother board clean with vaccum cleaner. and fix it again.

If the same beep sound is coming try changing the Ram.
