Hi

Try to remove the battery, hold on power button for about 50-60seconds, then plug-in the charger and turn the laptop ON, see what happens
If it started, unplug the charger, plug-in the battery, and start the laptop again.

Please tell us your results
Good Luck

Dell gx 260 switchs with an orange amber


This usually indicates some type of hardware problem. Something in the box may need to reseated, or it could be a problem with your power supply (eg, it could be a number of different things).

Worst case there may be a problem with *********** board.

you can Google "gx260 amber light", you will quite a number of listings with people who have had the same issue, along with possible solutions to your problem.

You can try cleaning out the dust, insuring all the components and connectors on the mother board are seated correctly (reseat them).

Unfortunately this tends not to have a straight forward resolution.

I have 2 gx280s. One amber light issue ended up being bad capacitors on the motherboard (the fan would immediately come full on also in this case). This unit I stripped of parts and just had it recycled, not worth fixing. The second one (still in use) I was able to get working again by re-seating a number of motherboard components (memory, cpu, power, etc..).

Wish I could be more specific.

When you switch on the pc(dell optiplex gx 260),


Pop the case and make sure the video card, RAM, and CPU is all seated correctly in their slots, and then make sure all fuses you can see inside/outside the case are in good shape (if applicable)

Optiplex gx 260 steady amber light - done all things on dell website - still doesnt turn on. got a new PSU and it still has the same problem. theres a whirring sound which is the fan and the power supply...


Steady Amber Power LED generally indicative of a failed MB. Remove all Memory, Expansion Cards, peripheral items, if still same, replace the motherboard. If you get a Green LED with jusr RAM in system, then an expansion card or peripheral might be the issue. 95% sure it is mothebroard

Dell optiplex gx-260 slow performace


If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.
